My mom and I loved everything about our day in Versailles! It was easy to meet the group, hop on the train and pick up our bikes. Before heading to the gardens, we had time to browse a local food market and pick up fix-ins for a picnic, which was lots of fun! We then spent the rest of the morning and afternoon exploring the sprawling landscape of Versailles by bike (we saw so much and were able to cover a lot more ground than had we traveled by foot!), pausing along the way to learn about the history of this landmark from our informative guide*. We certainly earned our picnic, which was delightful. At the end of the cycling portion of the day, we skipped the line and were able to experience the rest of the Versailles palace at our own pace. Great value! *I cannot remember our guide's name, but he is English, running the 2019 NYC marathon, and works as a translator for business professionals. Hopefully that will identify him and earn him credit for a wonderful experience!
Our family of four (kids aged 11 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our day trip to Versailles. The equipment provided (including helmets, required by French law) was in great shape, and our guide (Nick) was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable of Versailles, as well as an experience guide who was extremely patient with our kids (who wanted to ride alongside of him at the front of the pack). We would highly recommend Get Your Guide (Nick especially) as a fun way to tour a huge site such as Versaille.
Julian our tour guide is quite comical and was light when we went about the tour. He was punctual and arrived at the pick up point on time. We were quite early and reached the garden very early which was ideal to enjoy it without the packed crowd. The well manicured garden was picturesque. We were glad that he showed us that first. The only downside was we had to wait for the other group to join us for the Versailles tour. The tour was very informative as we learned the history of the palace of Versailles.
Our guide, Clemence (sp?) turned this tour from 4 stars to 5. She picked us up on time and was a delight the whole morning. We got to skip the crowds into the palace, and enjoyed a very interesting walk through each chamber. Lots of history and beautiful sights. Highly recommended, especially if you get Clemence!
We had a great tour guide Alan who knew his way around the palace and gardens. It was very crowded, but nothing he could have done about It. The van came straight to our apartment in the morning and dropped us off at a different location after without any difficulties
