The driver picked us up at our apartment promptly and the ride was enjoyable. Patrick, our guide, was knowledgeable and interesting. His English was very good. Thank you!

The palace was spectacular. The opportunity to purchase snacks was minimal so plan accordingly as you're there quite a while with the transit time.

Patrick the tour guide was very knowledgeable and concerned about our comfort and needs the entire time.

The guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. This tour is a whole day experience. Which I did not realize. The Estate of Versailles is very large and they do not offer enough golf carts to visit the gardens. Their is a train however, there is a tremendious about of walking even with the train.

Our Versailles tour was incredible. Our guide was so knowledgeable and personable, she made our time a Versailles very well worth while. The house and furnishings, the Hall of Mirrors, and the spectacular guardens are worth the trip. A must when in Paris !
