This private tour was amazing. Our guide Anna spoke perfect English and was a ball of energy. Her knowledge of Versailles was beyond compare and we saw places and details of the grounds we did not know existed beyond the palace. A surprise around every corner. Having the fountains working at the time made it even better. 4 hours flew by.

Terrible experience. we paid $851 for a private guide to take us through the Château of Versailles. 1) our guide was 40 minutes late. We were asked to be there 20 minutes early and he arrive 20 minutes late. 2) he dumped us in front of the Château, and said he would meet us there after we were finished seeing it. Other larger groups had their guide with them, and we had to go through by ourselves. 3) when he returned he was another 25 minutes late. 4) there was an issue, and he could not get us into the Gardens. Or the Marie-Antoinette exhibit. 5) after paying $851 this was not acceptable. Not to mention that his English was very poor and we could hardly understand him and the fact that he was not knowledgeable. 6) we literally wasted the whole day because we did not get to see the beautiful gardens or the rest of the Marie-Antoinette exhibit. He wasted our entire day. Thank you for the refund, but it was still a waste of a very important day for us. Some thing I really wanted to see.

We drew a short straw with our Versailles guide. He was quick to complain, and made it clear to us that he was in no condition (physically or psychologically) to give the tour. He barely talked to us, raced from room to room with his back to us, and complained to anyone who would listen - even Versailles staff - about whatever grievance he had at the moment. We tried to just ignore him as much as possible and couldn't wait for our time with him to end. We had other private guides throughout the trip, and he was by far the worst. He had no empathy and failed to even "try" to make things fun or entertaining. The #1 rule of guiding: your clients are there on vacation and want to relax and have fun. He was abysmal on all counts. And this was a private and expensive tour! I have never had an experience like this, and hope to never repeat it!

Our tour guide cancelled at the last minute. Vietor offered to send me tickets so we could still go, but never did. We did not get in to Versailles. I am still waiting for a refund. Awful experience.
