You are really missing out! Our guide Herve was such a delight. I normally like to do things solo but this tour changed my mind. Great stories, such enthusiasm for history and lovely to talk to. Met some lovely people on the tour as well! Will certainly be booking another tour

Our tour guide was very personable, engaging and knowledgeable. Enjoyed her narrative as we walked room to room while she painted a picture of what life was like for the occupants of the Château. We had plenty of free time to tour the gardens on our own after her guided

Many thanks for your review! We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your tour at Versailles and that you were able to stay longer and enjoy more after your tour had ended. There are so many wonderful things to see there, it's the reason we prefer to use the train so you can stay on afterwards if you want to. Our guides are always happy to help with advice on other things to see in the palace or the town, and as I'm sure you saw, the train ride back is very easy. We hope to see you again on future visits!

This was my 2nd tour of Versailles which I shared with my granddaughter this time around. Herve was our tour guide both times and he is simply the best. My granddaughter is in high school and she said that she wished her history teachers were as good as Herve! He truly makes

Thank you very much for your kind review! It's lovely to read that you came back with us to Versailles again and especially that you brought your granddaughter with you this time. (I wish my history teachers had been as good as Hervé too!) We hope to have you back again and perhaps to meet more of your family in the future!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We have passed your kind words on to Caroline, and I can only add that I agree with you completely, as I have also had the great pleasure of following her tours, and have taken my daughters twice with Caroline - they also loved her tours! We hope that we will have the chance to welcome you or your family again on future visits to Paris.
