The bus ride was quiet and efficient. The tour guide was exceptional, she had a vast knowledge of the history of Versailles. Would definitely recommend.

The family tour was perfect for our two 10 year old girls. The bus was great, and we only had one family on the tour which meant really personalised service for the tour.

Excellent guide! My 5 year old granddaughter loved the experience. Only one problem, we thought we were signed up for fountain show but there wasn't one.

Our guide really focused on engaging our kids 10 and 12, although they were the only kids on the tour along with 8 adults. Perhaps the others joined this family tour because it was a shorter tour? After the personal tour of the palace, we had about an hour to walk around the grounds and grab some lunch for the 1/2 hour bus ride back. Great to have audio headsets provided to hear the guide better as well.
