Thanks to our driver Rudolpho who navigated his way with ease and humor. Our guide Clotilde was AMAZING. What a historian!!! Thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would definitely recommend.

This tour was excellent. We went on 1/2 day tour. My wife and I went in early December. The hotel pickup was right on time and the driver was very nice and knowledgeable. The tour is only 1.5 hours but we saw all the highlights. We only spent a short time in the gardens since it was windy and cold. The 1/2 day tour is plenty long in winter months, would probably do full day tour when the weather is warm.

The hotel pick up and drop off was very nice. The drivers were on time, friendly and helpful. Our guide at the palace very knowledgeable and friendly. The headset made it easy to hear her even with the crowds. I would recommend this tour. It was well worth the money.

The driver picked us up at our hotel at the designated time and we met our tour guide at Versailles. Audree/Audrey? was our guide and she did a beautiful job describing the history of the castle, grounds and the items inside the castle. In addition, she helped us navigate the crowds and gave us tips on what to see in the beautiful gardens, which we explored on our own. The driver picking us up was on time and got us back into Paris safely. It was a great afternoon and worth leaving the city to explore a bit of history and grandeur at Versailles.
