It was great to have a guide to accompany us from a train station from Paris and walk us to the Palace of Versailles. Outside the gate we met our tour guide. The company also let us know in advance via email that the train station changed and if we wanted to meet at the new train station location in Paris or to meet outside of the Palace. That was helpful to make our own decision. We opted to meet at the new train station which ended up being closer to our apt.

Incredible palace, beautiful to see. Met a tour guide in Paris who guided us to a guide at Versaille. The guide there was very informative. Only drawback and not the guides fault was that it was very busy and crowded. In the palace people are confined to small places, so makes it hot and uncomfortable. A must see once.

Very well organized trip from Paris to Versailles and then a very good tour with the guide. We were one adult and two kids (12, 16 yrs). A morning tour in the park when hardly anyone else is there is amazing. The guide made us see all the essentials of the park and the castle and was very engaged and knowledgeable. The only thing (and that was not the fault of the guide) was that we were planning to stay in the garden to have lunch but we couldnt, so we had to pat a full garden fee to re-enter to the park. Either this information could be added to the description of the tour, or even better, included in the tour. Thanks!
