This was a great way to see Versailles! I can only imagine how crowded it would have been if we had gone earlier in the day. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

We took the Versailles at closing tour. Our meeting place for changed, which they told us about and when we arrived at the new meeting place the coordinator and other guests had already left! Long story short we got connected and really enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Katarina, was beyond fabulous!! Funny, knowledgeable, considerate. Would definitely recommend.

I would travel to France just to have Adam as a guide - a born showman, with a wealth of knowledge and a wicked sense of humour - he made Versailles come alive and brought us all along for a wonderful ride. Also, to tour the palace without crowds - in July - priceless.

The male guide was very well informed and knowledgeable, however, I was very disappointed in the lack of communication and with the accommodations in traveling to Versailles.

We used this group for the Louvre and Versailles. Our tour guide, Violette, was exceptional!!!! She was extremely knowledgeable - having a masters in art history - personable and fun! She was an absolute delight. Book these tours with her, you will not be disappointed!!!
