We had Isabelle as our English speaking guide and she was a fantastic. No wait to get in and full of little nuggets of knowledge, and the palace was mind blowing. Would return.
Our tour guide Ann Sophia gave us an excellent overview of the history of the Palace of Versailles. She made the tour interesting by telling us details of each room, the paintings, and the culture of those times. She answered all our questions and was very patient and respectful. The palace itself is a must see for all who are coming to France and have some time to spare to go to Versailles. Highly recommend this tour!
Beautiful place , it must have been good to be the king . The rooms and paintings were unbelievable.
Isabelle was a fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly, funny tour guide. My fiancé and I really enjoyed ourselves with her company. I definitely would recommend because our experience was better because we knew the history behind each room.
This tour was amazing. The guide Isabelle was very friendly and so knowledgeable. I will definitely be back.
Beautiful experience. I highly suggest spending a day at the palace of Versailles. The view is captivating.
We had this tour booked and we were coming from Paris. The trains were extremely packed and we got there late. The tour guide didn’t wait for us or even leave teh tickets with the gate. They just left inside the palace with out tickets so when we got there we could not go in. The lady who was part of this company who called us did not even try to do anything for us, just said no we were late sorry. When I went to the Versailles palace ticket office they told me that in this situation the tour guide should have left out tickets with them so that they could atleast grant us entrance, but it seems the tour guide prob just sold out tickets to someone else. We were extremely upset that we didn’t get to go to Versailles palace, as the next day we were already leaving Paris.
Schlecht, schlecht, schlecht. Viel versprochen nichts gehalten, kein Support.. Geld weg.. unglaublich aber wahr. NIE mehr getyourguide
Merci pour toute la fantastique organisation. Le guide et l'agence cinq ÉTOILES. Merci beaucoup pour toute l'attention
I have visited Versailles before without a guided tour and man.. what a difference! You learn and enjoy so much more with a tour. Our guide Isabelle was great! She really made the tour unforgettable. Totally worth it!
When we arrived in Versailles, it was very easy to find the office to check in and meet with the guide. The tour itself was awesome, our guide (Vladina) spoke English well and they gave us headsets so we could hear her during the tour. It would have been impossible to hear without those. Our guide had a lot of information to give in each room of the main palace we visited, which I really enjoyed! Would definitely recommend this tour for inside the palace.
The operators with Viator were amazing! We were running late and called them, they were able to tell us out ETA and then had their tour guide bring us our tickets to the entrance. They even called to make sure we made it okay. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much and enjoyed the tour.
This was by far the highlight of our first official day in Paris. We booked the English guided tour, which proved to be an excellent decision. The tour guide gave us a detailed description of each of the most famous portions of the Palace. I left wanting to know more about the French revaluation. Also, the garden is huge! We were kind of caught off guard by it’s size, because the view of it from inside of the palace does not give it justice. We ended up renting an electric golf cart, and exploring it after our tour was completed. Overall, great experience, and would recommend. We’ll most likely visit the garden again during the spring time.
Our tour guide Laura was THE BEST guide we’ve ever had! She brought the history of Versailles to life and kept us at the edge of our seats! We wish we could take her with us everywhere!
Great tour, very knowledgeable guide! The tour was very organized and not too large. Was easy to hear the guide with the earphone.
Laura was such a great guide! Her English was perfect and her knowledge of French History and Versailles is very impressive!
Muito boa a experiência, a agência nos esperou pq atrasamos ums 10 minutos com o trânsito, a guia era muito educada e gente boa.
We had a wonderful tour with Isabelle. She was engaging, informative and entertaining. Thank you for a great visit to Versailles!
We enjoyed the tour and not waiting in any lines. Isabelle, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and super friendly. The guides broadcast their words to tiny headsets you wear - much better that trying to hear w/o it them in such a large place The only challenge - her French accent was sometimes hard to understand.
Laura was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed her tour.
The tour of the interior with Laura was superb, excellent communication and very well-informed/informative, both on the history of the buildings and the events associated with it. We also very much enjoyed the grounds and the superb trees, both ancient and solitary (Oak from 1668) and the planned and manicured avenues.
Excellent tour guide (Annie-sop')... perfect English. 10am start date.. wasn't busy at all...perfect tour length ... beautiful place
Isabel was awesome and so knowledgeable. She was patient and I took so many pictures. Thank you so much
Very nice visit. Our guide Laura entertained us, pointed the most important things to observe during our visit, good history lesson also. She was great. Highly recommend booking this experience.
Best part of the experience was the guide. So good english and had connection with us asking us questions or doing saying jokes. Also good reception before we even start they helped book the tour for english on the last minute without extra charges. I totally recommend them for Versailles. Special thanks to our guide (Anne Sophie I think) for the educational and fun tour. 30/10/21 the greek couple.
Anne-Sophie est une guide extraordinaire Merci ! Elle a beaucoup de patience et explique très bien Visite géniale
We have not been able to join the tour, as it was unclear where to get the tickets (we expected to get them at the palace, however that was not the case and after triple checking we saw we had to get them at another location. I was not able to get to the other location with two kids and no transport). Given the limited time we had, we bought new tickets and went in ourselves. Unfortunately it is non refundable so we waisted 88 euros.
Sophie Anne was amazing. She was so informative we were really able to visualize the whole era. The tour was 10 out of ten highly recommended and no queuing
Loved the historical details included in the tour! Stunning views and beautiful weather the day we visited in the middle of October. It wasn’t necessary to skip the line, as there was actually no line when we arrived later on the afternoon in the autumn, but it was well worth it for the quality of the tour!
We really enjoyed this tour of Versailles. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable of the palace and its history. We loved the tour and highly recommend! Definitely stick around after the tour and explore the gardens. Grab a sandwich and take it all in.
