Nadia was a very nice and informative tour guide. From pickup point in Paris to the Palace we were lucky to have her share the most interesting points of the Palace. Much recommended!!!

I booked this tour months ago and they sent me the wrong location to meet with the group, so I was unable to take the tour. Their customer service was helpful when I asked for a refund, however, I am now weary booking with them for fear this will happen again.

I went on this tour on a free day from my study abroad program. I really enjoyed it. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had ample time to listen and take pictures. Only thing I would change is more time to explore the gardens before having to be back at the coach bus.

Our group guide was excellent. Extremely well informed and very friendly. She catered to everyone in the group. The skip the line tickets with the tour are definitely the way to go. Our guide knew how to negotiate the crowds and kept us moving. La Vacanza Travel is highly recommended for a reason!

Veronique was great!! Super informative; didn’t drag on for too long about anything, and seemed to know just about everything about the palace. She showed us all the major stuff and I think it was well worth the money. Skipping the very long line out front alone is worth it
