Guide was knowledgeable but rhis was not a small group tour. There were 23 people in our group and the palace was over crowded. It mimade it hard to hear the guide hard to hear and it felt very claustrophobic. I would pass on this.

Overall good experience

The guide experience was pretty good. If there was any issue it would be the headset she used was not clear enough for us to understand what she was saying half of the time. Overall she was very nice and took time to explain everything. As far as Versailles itself, it is quite a site but they need to manage the crowds. There were many times the bottle neck was just absurd.

A really nice tour with lots of little details you won't find reading the regular guide books. Our tour guide was really nice and he would take the time to answer every question. The discussions on day to day life in the castle really helped bring the past to life. Would definitely do this again in a few years with the kids.

We had a great time. Isabella was very knowledgeable and giving just enough detail to hold our interest. The palace is beautiful. Worth the tour. We only had 11 people in our group

Okay Tour, Nice Guide

We purchased primarily for the skip the line, which was unnecessary at 9 AM on a Tuesday. The tour company was disorganized and our tickets were with a different guide so we entered the palace almost 30 minutes late. Issues with the headsets made it very difficult to understand the tour guide, as a result the pace felt very slow. The tour guide was very nice, but we should have just explored on our own.

Much too crowded during Covid
Sandra_G

This rating has nothing to do with our tour guide or the tour operator. However, the venue itself lets in far too many people into the palace to be safe. Unlike the Louvre which strictly enforces its mask policy, there was no one at the Palace of Versailles making sure masks were being worn. Many people wore their masks around their chin which was not appreciated. I could not wait to get out of there.

Fun tour

I had a wonderful tour and the Paris TRIP tour operators were very helpful when I got confused about my ticket. The gardens tour is only included when there is no magic fountain show. In any case I spent hours wandering about the place and could have spent much longer. Our guide Olivier related a number of interesting stories about the palace and about French nobility. I learned a lot. This was definitely a highlight of my trip to France.

The guide wasn't too obvious and didnt had a sign on it but after we contacted the company we were "collected". The presentation of the guide was very nice with lot of informations and good english. We liked it.

Genial!!

Nos ha gustado mucho esta visita. Nuestra guía una chica mexicana, fantástica en todos los sentidos, tanto por las explicaciones como por su amabilidad y atención con nosotros. La duración, perfecta. Sí recomendaría en caso de realizar la visita de las 15h, y dada la extensión de los jardines del palacio, considerad que a partir de las 17h ya no existe posibilidad de darse un paseo en el trenecito por los jardines, ni alquilar un boogie para darse un paseo.
