I took the full day tour of Versailles. There was more than adequate time to see the palace and gardens and have lunch without rushing. This meant that the time in the palace was exceptionally information - due mainly to our guide Claire who knew everything about everything. Claire made the visit not only informative but interesting and entertaining with lots of fun facts and figures.

Great tour of Versailles, including the Trianon palaces and Marie Antoinette’s village! Our tour guide Claire was great - she knew so much about the history, had a fun sense of humor, and was very attentive in making sure everybody was able to keep up. The tour was just a little bit too long for me personally (lunch was almost 2 hours). Nevertheless, it’s worth it if you love history and like to see the lesser known sights. But if you just want to see the main attractions then the half day tour would be better.

This entire tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide Fabio was very knowledgeable about Versailles and its history as well as the history of Paris and France! Our lunch was totally divine, and we enjoyed every bit of it! This was a wonderful trip and the experience is and was priceless! We are so glad that we purchased the full day at Versailles because we were able to experience so many more things than those who only purchased a half day! I highly recommend the full day tour at Versailles! I promise you will not regret it! It was fabulous!!!!!
