Great guided tour to Versailles
Sep 2021
Laura was a fantastic guide. She was informative, witty, and entertaining. She provided sufficient detail for us to appreciate the history and the architecture of Versailles without overwhelming us.

Amazing day with Isabel our guide
Mar 2020
Amazing day. Met 10am at tourist office opposite Rail station (Versailles -Rive Gauche) and taken through Palace rooms. Little waiting other than Isabel getting the etrance tickets and going through security. Isabel was charming, very informative and talked about the archtecture , building and history of the palace. Isabel also pointed out various paintings and anecdotes concerning the paintings. ( we were given headphones so that we could clearly hear Isabel.) Some of the smaller rooms were crowded with other tour groups and visitors (this is on a SAT in March) but not so crowded that you could not take pictures or walk around. (If this is March I would hate to visit in summer!). At the end of the tour we were left in the palace so that we could visit on are own the rest of the palace ( childrens rooms on ground floor / coach house and gardens). Note once you leave the palace buiding for the gardens you cannot re-enter. Best rooms of the palace the newly restored Marie Antoinette bed chambers and the unique hall of mirrors. Great tour would recommend. The gardens are also stunning for sheer size and planning, unfortunately not officialy opened at time of our visit so no water coming out of the many fountains and many of the statues were covered, but still wonderful. You can hire golf carts ( gardens are that big) to drive around the many pathways if you wish .
You can take a picnic to eat in the gardens ( in the summer would be great ) or there are coffee shops / restaurants in the ground. We did not visit the additional Trianon (Marie Antoinette's estate ) as you need a separate ticket. We finished around 4pm.
Easy to get to from Paris on main line train RER C. Note RER C for Versailles Chateau - Rive Gauche stop and other stations on this line onward from Paris starts and on return journey ends at station - Invalid ( currently there is no connection to Musee d' Orsay on this line as appears on the metro map).

Amazing day at Versailles
Feb 2020
We had a wonderful tour guide and she was extremely knowledgable and very friendly. It was an amazing experience for myself and my family. We would go back again. The grounds in the spring would be amazing to see.
Just remember to view the fine print on where to meet the tour as we didn't and luckly had enough time to go and find the tour company which was about a block away but it all worked out.

The experience was awesome. Meet up was easy. Versailles is accessible via express train in 12 minutes + 10 minute walk according to Sophie. We used Uber, about 30 minutes and less than 40 euros.
Sophie was very knowledgeable and funny, She explained as much as she can and we were very impressed with her knowledge.
If you have the chance, ask for Sophie Ann

Great Experience and Easy Meet-Up!
If you’re looking to get the highlights of this amazing place, skip the insane lines, all while still having the freedom to wonder the property on your own, this is the experience for you. Although all tour groups do have a slight wait at the entrance for security screening lines (I waited no more than 20 minutes), it’s a walk in the park compared to the 2+ hour line that existed around 12:30PM that afternoon. (And that was in February, the off-season!). Our tour guide, Ann-Sophie, was incredibly knowledgable and had a unique way to make the tour interactive which really kept it fresh and enjoyable. The palace and the grounds themselves are amazing to see regardless, but it’s that much more special with a great guide like Ann-Sophie. Meeting up with your guide is super easy... the company office are located directly across the street from the RER Line C train terminal at the Versailles end-stop (to the right of McDonalds and a small coffee/sandwich shop) and it’s only a 5-min walk to the palace with your guide. The guided portion of the tour only lasts about 1-1.5 hrs and covers the main rooms of the palace, but there’s so much more to see on your own after the tour. I actually found myself wishing it was a bit longer at the end! And that’s always a sign of a good tour. So sign up today, and don’t forget to tip your guide!

Guided tour of Versailles Palace
Jan 2020 • Solo
This was brilliant! I highly recommend this company and the tour. Our guide was Anne-Sophie and I was amazed at her knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism. I mistakenly arrived at the Chateau (you should go to the tour office at the station to collect your ticket and start the tour) but was very reassured when I telephoned to explain my mistake - no hassle or problem to worry about.
The tour was informative, interesting and made history come alive - I would do it again. Thank you!

There wasn’t really much of a line to skip, it was November, but I was still really glad we bought this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared so much history with us. My husband and I enjoyed it very much.

Highlight of my Paris visit
Anne-Sophie was probably one of the best tour guides I’ve ever encountered. She was very knowledgeable, interactive and fun. Versailles itself is a sight to behold but the tour was a nice supplement that boosted the experience tenfolds.
