We were delighted to be able to skip the 2 hour queue and walk straight to the door of the palace. The guide was punctual, knowledgeable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

I had the pleasure of being part of Laura's guided tour of the Palace of Versailles. The group consisted of mostly couples and smaller family groups while I was solo. We received ear pieces and were able to skip a VERY long line into the palace. Laura was witty, well-informed and moved at a steady pace throughout the tour. She guided us through a busy Tuesday at the palace and was able to navigate us to prime locations for photos in each room, while also giving us free reign to explore. Laura answered off the cuff historical questions and managed to attract a few followers throughout the palace with her humor.

Skip the Line is definitely the way to go! We used Guideatours and avoided very long lines. After 1 hour with the guide we were on our own to continue our exploration.
