Our tour guide, Anna, was amazing. She spoke fluent English and was able to cater the tour to our interests. Make sure and add Marie Antoinette’s house to the Versailles tour. Would definitely recommend and make sure you ask for Anna!!!

Nils is an excellent guide. His knowledge of Versailles is astounding. He engages his guest in a very gracious manner. We recommend Nils very highly as guide for Versailles.

I am giving 5 stars because of the tour guide. There was an issue with the tour company and I was very unsatisfied but our tour guide was amazing and the palace was amazing. I highly recommend getting the tickets that include M-A’s private quarters. The grounds around her mini palace were wonderful and our tour guide had a wealth of information. She was professional yet personable and wasn’t scripted like other guides I passed. She had real knowledge to share and was very interesting. We mentioned we were going to the catacombs later and she gave us some info about how that related to the king. She spent extra time with us and went above and beyond. Tour company- 2 stars; La Vacanza Travel-2 stars; tour guide- 5+ stars.

Stephane was a wonderful guide. He told in depth stories about much of the history of the palace. He even made a lunch recommendation for after the tour and accompanied us to the restaurant to make sure we were well taken care of. We highly recommend.

We booked this tour so that we could skip the lines and be able to hear and understand our tour guide. We got so much more than just that! Zoya was amazing- hitting just the right balance of historical facts and interesting analysis of the various art. The weather was poor and she adjusted the activities accordingly to give us the best possible experience. We could not have been happier and would book any tour that Zoya conducts. We have been to Versailles before and got so much more from this experience.
