Gardens and Fountain Show is a Must!
Oct 2021 • Solo
Everything is gold. Palace was huge. But I personally love the Gardens. Visit at Saturdays to see the Fountain Show, which is definitely the highlight of my Paris tour. I would like to upload a video of it but it doesn’t let me. What I like about this tour is that the guide left us after the palace. It may not be ok for others, but for me, it gave me enough time (6 hours) to really explore the gardens and watch the fountain shows. Highly recommended! 5 of 5! 🙂

Not good. Got lost because meeting point was changed from day before when I entered to my GPS.
Guide would not wait 10 minutes for us to re route our journey.

Dear MamamMia1073, Thank you for your review. I would like to express how sorry I am to hear that you missed your Versailles tour. We understand that finding locations in a new city can be difficult. That is why we offer support to our customers over the phone and we provide our contact details on the booking voucher in case you cannot find the meeting point or the guide you must call us before the tour departs. If you would like to contact us with your booking reference directly we can investigate what happened exactly with your meeting point location as we have always one place only where the guide meet people. Kind regards, Federica City Wonders

Versailles tour
The palace itself was very beautiful. Getting to Versailles was also very easy, however our tour guide did not give us printed tickets to the gardens to be able to re enter throughout the day. This really limited us from being able to enjoy the entire city and the various monuments that are around. Especially when we rented a golf cart and got stopped at the gate and had to plea our case to renter to return the cart. The tour itself of the actual palace was nice; we just spent a long time in every room.

The tickets are good to skip the line, however the line was non existent when we visited, which is not usual for the palace. You can save some money if you go without a guide, but you will miss getting the history of the palace from an expert.

Dear mahanz2019, We thank your for taking the time to write this review. We are glad to see that you had enjoyed our guided tour. The tour to the Gardens is guided too and clients can stay there after the Gardens guided tour. However they must not exit to return back later because we are unable to give print out tickets just for the gardens due to the internal ticketing system of Versailles. We hope this explanation can help to understand better the situation. Kind regards, Simona City wonders

Pricey but we didn’t have very many choices
Jul 2021 • Friends
It was informative but the sale of the activity was misleading. When I bought the tickets, it appeared as if the gardens were included but the fountain show was optional. Instead the gardens weren’t included either. We were running 2 mins late, the tour guide waited for us as I had called ahead which was nice. We met in a square and took the train to Versailles together as a group but were given tickets to return at our own leisure. The return tickets did not work for us for some reason so we had to purchase additional train tickets.

He was well versed on Chateau de Versailles. I do wish that as a tour guide the company had their guides wear bright colored clothing so they’re easy to spot.

All in all, I think the tour was probably worth $50.
The tour guide was good, I am giving it a 2 rating because the sale of the tour was misleading and our return tickets from Versailles didn’t work.

Dear juslean, Many thanks for taking the time to share a review on Trip Advisor. I am very sorry if there was any confusion caused by the various options we provide online when you book the Versailles tour, we try to explain the differences in the description the best we can. Please note that the fountain show is not available every day and therefore in that case, the only option available is the palace so when you book you need to pay attention to what you select. Regarding the return train tickets, they should have worked, we are puzzled as to why you could not use them. The round trip transportation is included from Paris to Versailles and our guide gets the return tickets on the day of the tour and distributes them to the clients so they can return on the same day at the time they choose. Please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Care line with your booking reference number so we can investigate this. We are relieved however to learn that you enjoyed the tour and found the guide knowledgeable. We wish you safe travels. Kindest Regards, Chadia City Wonders.

Stranded by transportation company!
The Palace was truly amazing. The worst part was we paid for the transportation to and from the Palace but the driver and bus never arrived to pick us up. They sent us an email the morning of but we had already left and didn’t get their notification and was stranded. It ended up costing us $60 each way. Not a way to run a business.

Dear LLynnColburn, Thank you for submitting a review. We are very sorry to hear about your experience, however I'm afraid that you have posted your review under the wrong provider as we do not provide private transportation to Versailles by bus nor do we pick up clients from their hotels. We provide guided tours to Versailles and meet our clients at a specific meeting point. Please kindly review the name of the company you have booked the transportation with to contact them and submit a review in the right location. We wish you a lovely stay in Paris. Kindest Regards Chadia City Wonders

Ferret = best tour guide. 11/10. Would love to go again
Our tour guide, Ferret, was AMAZING!!! First time in Versailles and my wife and I were blown away. Ferret was extremely knowledgeable about each and every room and aspect of the palace. He gave us the background of the who, what, and why the palace was created and used for. My wife usually likes to do self guided tours, but even she was grateful for all the stories! It completely changed my own perception of the palace and it’s history. Not only was our tour guide, Ferret, a connoisseur of French history, he made the tour fun! I was smiling as much as I was starting at the ceiling looking at all the art. He took an awesome picture of my wife and I in the hall of mirrors that we will treasure in our honeymoon scrapbook forever. If you ever decide to take a tour there I HIGHLY recommend Ferret as your tour guide!
