The directions for where to meet were very confusing. Needed to be much more clear. Need a better meeting place. When off the bus and splitting into three groups, the group leaders did not call out the numbers so we had to ask which group. After asking and being told it was group two we found out it was group three. Really need to make guides call out group number loudly. We do appreciate being able to get in a later group as we missed the one we were scheduled for because we went to the wrong place. Our group two guide was great. She had good stories and knowledge.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and I learned so much from her. She explained everything about what we were doing and what to expect. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our train to get to the meeting spot was canceled so we had to quickly shift gears & hail a cab to get there, arriving right at 10am thinking we missed it. Emma was there to greet us, she had texted me but I didn't receive it until later. She walked us over to meet Wade (I think that was his name) our tour guide + the rest of the group. Our tour guy was very helpful, knowledgable, engaging and answered all our questions! The big plus for us was that you had someone checking on people running late - really appreciate that! It was a great day at Versailles!

Travelling in Europe has really changed since my last visit in 2013 and i was surprised at how much was barrcaded in Versailles, particularly with respect to the entrance at the front gates. Nonetheless, the tour was excellent; Versailles remains a spectacular sight to behold and my adult son was mesmerized by the beauty and extent of the gardens as well. Our guide was forthcoming with an honest appraisal of the times of Louis XIV, his offspring and the suffering of the people of the times. I have seen/noticed and heard something new every visit and remain in awe of the splendour of the palace.

All was smooth, except the train was on strike. Given that there were 30 of us I thought a bus might be better. I felt that it was a bit rushed. Maybe because we got a late start.

There is a certain magic that fizzes through the air in the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Hidden away from the modern world, this majestic European castle on the outskirts of Paris is a perfectly preserved example of the reckless extravagance of the French monarchy.

What can you expect from this tour?

With a maximum of 25 people per group, your tour of Versailles will be intimate, unhurried, and enjoyable. Skip the lines to Versailles as your guide will lead you from one marvelous room to the next, pointing out where Louis XIV tormented his friends and family with long, boring ceremonies and where it was that Marie Antoinette ate her cake.

Marvel at the sheer size of the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most beautiful castles in the world with a whopping 700 rooms. Peruse its incredible array of fine art and the intricate design of its 1250 fireplaces as you work your way through the highlights of the castle including the King and Queen’s apartments, the Chapel, the Coronation Room, the Hall of Mirrors, and the Salon of Abundance – how many residences can boast one of those? And just when you think that you have seen all that the Palace of Versailles has to offer, you’ll burst into the sunlight and encounter its dazzling manicured gardens, over 1,800 acres in size.

Stroll the beautiful Gardens of Versailles

Choose a date when either the famous Versailles Fountain Show or Musical Gardens are running (all running days from Apr to Oct, except Wed & Thu). The Versailles Fountain Show is a wonderful musical event held in the exclusive groves, designed by André Le Nôtre. Watch fountains explode to the sounds of a cello at the Fountain Show or just be enchanted by the simple beauty of classical music played in beautiful surroundings during the Musical Gardens event.
