Being able to skip the line at the palace was PRICELESS! That in itself was worth this. The audio guide was wonderful also. We learned so much with our personal tour guide! However, it would have been much more efficient to meet our guide at the train station before we started out to Versailles. Meeting elsewhere, waiting and having to miss two buses because of the crowds and then getting to the station on a crowded bus was ridiculous! This was the only downside to this booking. Change that and it's a five star trip!

The tour was well organized. The transportation is by using the busses and trains so it takes awhile. The tour guide was nice but got some facts mixed up, when someone In The group brought it up she quickly recovered and was able to offer more information. Unfortunately this happened several times though.

Everything was smooth and easy. The guide was great. Very attentive and showed us where to go. The only thing I would say is skip the palace with teenagers and go right to the gardens and Trianon. My kids did not enjoy the palace at all...too crowded and just a lot of paintings.
