Chloe was an excellent tour guide. I had a much better understanding of French history after our tour.

We had a van take us to a location right in front of the palace. The driver arrived promptly at the selected time at our hotel. It was a 45 minute drive. Our tour guide Sofie, was excellent and knew everything about the palace, its architecture, the royals who lived there, the surrounding environs, the gardens, etc. She made the palace come alive for us.
At 2 pm, the driver met us at the drop off location and took us directly back to the hotel. It was a wonderful day.

The tour was well planned and very informative about Versailles. We were able to see the palace even though there were a lot of other people there. The transpiration to and from teh palace was excellent.

The driver picked us up at our hotel right on time and was waiting for us at the conclusion of the tour. Our tour guide was very well informed. Some of the earpieces were not working well and there were not enough replacements. Consequently, a couple of people in our group had to go without. Overall it was a great experience.

Skip the line is the way to go, this was a great and informative tour! We were able to easily move throughout Versailles. Would highly recommend.
