Great Tour with Knowledgeable Guide

We visited Paris over the holidays in December 2019-2020. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Versailles, they decided not to open the palace because of the strike. Despite the fact that we were unable to get into the Palace, our tour guide, Fred, provided a wonderful tour, showing us the grounds, gardens and wonderful lunch at a small restaurant in Versailles. We learned a great deal about the Palace, its history and the rooms. He was a wonderful guide and helped us make the best out of a difficult situation.

Outstanding Experience

Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about Versailles and was able to navigate our way through the crowds. He was able to make it feel like a very intimate and informative experience in spite of the hoards of people elbowing their way through the palace. The experience was memorable for all of the right reasons. It was a bonus that he also knew shortcuts through Paris traffic in the midst of a debilitating transit strike. Book this trip!

Our family -- two adults, plus 12- and 10-year-old sons -- got so much out of this tour. We felt like Fred taught us a French history class in addition to everything about Versailles, in the best possible way; it put Versailles into a larger context, and he did so in a way that even the children got something out of it. He was skilled at avoiding some of the larger crowds within Versailles whenever possible as well. We also appreciated being picked up and dropped off again right at our hotel, along with getting to skip the entry line that was incredibly long even in late November. I'd recommend this tour to anyone, including families, who want to see Versailles and learn an incredible amount about it without being just another visitor in one of the enormous groups.

This tour is pricey but every penny is worth it! With the secret side entrance, you won't be waiting at all as you pass by the hundreds of tourists just waiting and waiting. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and shared us everything we needed to know! We were transported via a luxury Mercedes Van - very comfortable stocked with bottles of water. Highly recommend!

We were in Paris with my two young children (ages 4 and 6). Fred did a great job of tailoring the tour to meet the cadence (and attention span) of a young family's first visit to Versailles. Would highly recommend him and Parismatic tours!

Fred was the ultimate guide. He made the visit to Versailles a memorable and enjoyable experience. from the moment he picked us up at the hotel, he was full of very interesting facts and history. We felt totally special as we visited the palace and had no problem with access through the palace. It is a must visit with Fred.
