Laura was a great tour guide and the way she explained was amazing. It was almost like getting transcended into the 1700s when those people were actually living.

The guide Aliette was excellent .She was informative,interesting and at times amusing.There were queues to the Palace and this experience was well worth the cost at less than 20euros per person.

I teach my kids that money doesn't buy happiness.... but it gets you to the head of the line . We were very very happy to go to the head of the line be whisked inside as hundreds of people were waiting two hours to get in .Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra bucks and be treated like King Louie Our Guide Rubin was very personable and knowledgeable and did a great job on the tour providing interesting and amusing tidbits about the history and the bios of the people who lived here We did the garden add on which was also as amazing as well do it you will enjoy it We were very lucky to have Rubin and our only disappointment of the day was to notice how many cheapskates were in our group who were to tight to provide a well deserved tip ..Shame on you tightwads !!! bad karma people!! BTW I get it that Euros and Asians dont think its necessary( BS) but most were Americans Take care of the people who take care of you !!

The pick up location on Rue De Rivoli was very convenient, and the coach trip was comfortable. We were a mixed group so all announcements were made in three languages. When we arrived at the parking lot in front of Versailles, we linked up with our guide and waited only a short time to enter the Palace. I had not visited since 1982 so I was very interested to see what I remembered as an 18 year old. The Palace and gardens are lovely, and the Queen's apartments had recently been re-opened after renovation. The drawbacks were that the Palace was very crowded so the experience wasn't as nice as one would hope plus we had a very dry guide which is just luck of the draw. I could hear other guides giving interesting tidbits which would have made the experience more interesting but our guide was either a "just the facts" lady or had giving the tour so many times that she was on autopilot. I am still glad that I went but I wish that I had removed my earphones and just listened to the other guides.

We took the English speaking tour. We were glad to have Phillip as our guide. He was easy to understand, thorough, and move the tour at a comfortable pace. Versailles is very impressive! We also had Phillip for a garden tour. The garden is large and filled with water features. Glad Phillip showed us the garden highlights.
