We had an absolutely wonderful tour with Julie! She made the experience so special, skipping the general public line was fantastic. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone coming from the states.

A very informative guide, Olivia, who led us through the palace efficiently. Worth the money would do it again.

The Palace was amazing. So much history in one place. Thankful to our tour guide “Olivia” for her exceptional knowledge and kind demeanor. We learned a lot and had a great experience. It’s well worth the money to have a guide!!!

I've had the most wonderful experience with the agency owner Arno and my guide Anja. I was hesitant to take the tour of Versailles as I was traveling alone and the palace is outside the city, but Arno and Anja reassured me that it is worth the trip and even arranged transport for me. I'm so happy that they did because the palace, park and gardens are magnificent even in the winter season. I joined a group of a couple other visitors, and Anja, such an engaging storyteller, took us on a journey, not only telling us the historical background but also uncovering so many exciting details and little-known secrets that kept everyone's interest. It was an excellent tour and I will definitely do it again. My warmest recommendations!
