If you want the ideal conditions for viewing Versailles Chateau and Gardens, it would not be in a torrential, consistent downpour. We did however have our tour on a September day just like this. It was Fabulous! The fact that Toby, our Fat Tire Tours guide for the day, kept us entertained, our spirits up and managed to impart facts and history in an engaging and memorable way is an absolute credit to him. He had a genuine care for everyone in the group, ensuring everyone managed to kit themselves with enough wet weather deflection to remain semi-dry and was totally unphased by the lovable but frustrated toddler in our own party. Toby regaled us with the history of Versailles and the French royals with humorous, memorable anecdotes. As we ended the tour of the gardens and joined the queue to enter the chateau itself, chaos had begun due to the delays caused by the rain. Toby stuck by his group, cheerfully orchestrating some order in the chaos and ensured his group entered the chateau on time and intact, giving us a reassuring wave once we had entered into the main courtyard. The entire tour from the directions provided in order to meet the Fat Tires Tour guides in Paris, to the train trip to the tour of Versailles and the return was superbly organised with every eventuality considered. If this was all achieved on a stormy day such as this, I can only imagine how idyllic it would be on a mild day. Don't miss out, definitely book yourselves on this tour!

The palace was beautiful and the guide was very helpful taking photos for us, however he didn't warn us about certain restrictions on the Metro,. I was fined 60 euros.

Excellent tour operator, Martin our guide was very impressive with his knowledge and presentation. Well worth the cost even if they charged more I would do it again

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Only one thing missing - he forgot to tell us to check our backpack before going in so had to lug around the bag through the tight museum. Apart from that great!

Mado did an excellent job. She was very energetic and attentive to the requirements of the group. We chose the 8:30 AM Paris departure time which allowed us to go through the gardens before most of the public had arrived. The Palace itself is crowded but not much to be done about that. We always feel that these tours are made or broken by the guide. Count yourself lucky to get Mado.
