The experience was organised, informative and interactive. The group was not too large and it suited our 4 year old daughter. Highly recommended to anyone considering on going, especially to avoid the long queues.

We took the tour with a group of about 20 others. The guide did a wonderful job of keeping the group together and providing details of the Palace and the grounds which were interesting and informative. This tour is well planned and executed and provides a level of detail which a basic audio tour could not compare with. There is a great deal of walking and it can be taxing but well worth it if you are comfortable with the amount of walking. Our guide was wonderful, thank you.
Great introduction to Versailles

We had a great tour guide, Ingrid, who was very welcoming and informative. I think guided tours add so much more to the experience- we had an overview of the french history, royal family and traditions. It was just about the right detail and time. It was raining on the day we went so Ingrid adapted the tour to an extended indoor version, although we could still go into the gardens. I nice amount of waking. I would recommend for sure the skip the line aspect as the queue was huge!

I would highly recommend this guided tour to anyone who is looking to get amazed with absolute opulence teamed with someone to narrate you all the history behind it. We visited Paris in the first week of May 2018 and Palace of Versailles has always been in my list. I would recommend a guided tour as this place has so much history to offer. I chose this guided tour as it was pretty new in Viator, accommodates only small group 10-12 and provided flexibility in choosing how long you wanted the tour for. We opted the early morning 9:15 slot and a half day guided tour. Honestly half day was just perfect for us as we got to see most parts of the palace and the gardens. We even had access to the palace chapel which was not open to general public. Our guide I am so sorry but I forgot his name was brilliant. He was very clear and fluent in speaking English. They provided us with earphones which worked very well without any problems till the end of our tour. He knew so much about everything around there which made it more interesting for us. He would even answer our questions we had about the architecture or paintings or anything around that place. At the end of our tour, we even had the option to extend if we liked. Overall an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this guided tour.
