Well worth it

We had three days in Paris, and we really wanted to see Versailles. Highly recommend the guided tour, as it affords the chance to ask questions. We had free time to explore the gardens and a non hurried pace through the palace. Our guide, Isabelle, was terrific.

Michaela was our guide and she was great! She specialized in military history and was VERY knowledgeable. She did a great job of navigating our group through the crowds, and was kind enough to drop us off at Musee D'Orsay afterwards due to the rain! Highly recommend her for this tour.

This is a great tour. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and cold so we did not get to see much of the gardens. However, the tour of the palace was breathtaking.

My sister was in a wheel chair and the driver was amazing! The tour was through Parisd TRIP. Sorry I cant recall his name but he was a gentleman, sensitive and caring. The other tour members were also. Our booking was BR-627769670. This made our tour even more interesting because he was so knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

The tour was good. I felt like it could have been a bit longer. We were only there for a little over two hours. You really only have time to see the Palace. Very little time for the gardens. To me a half day tour should be a few hours at the site, not including drive time. Ricardo was pretty good.

Great guide, Zara was able to answe all our questions and gave very interesting and pertinent information. Although the crows were very large she managed to shepherd all of us and provide lots of info. At the end of the tour she drove us back to our hotel. The palace and the gardens are a must.
