Well organized but not the greatest headsets

Our tour guide was well organized especially with as large as a group she had (no larger than any other Versailles tour group). She had tickets ready, even marked the return train tickets so we wouldn't get it confused with earlier tickets. Wish the tour group's headset equipment worked better. I kept having problems with mine so I had to keep playing with it, moving the wire around or where the headset was inserted. This took away from the experience and was the worse headset of all the headsets we used on various tours and with different tour groups. I wasn't the only one with problems so the guide had to constantly swap out sets for people. Very distracting and time consuming.

The best for an entertaining tour of the castle!

Our guide in Paris, Guiseppe, brought us to Versailles with no problem and even gave us advice on how to come back to our hotels afterwards. He was friendly and explained everything very well. Our guide in the castle was the best. She gave us the inside scoop of the lives of the kings and queens and on how the society in Versailles worked. She told us everything in a very entertaining way and could answer all our questions. She was really lovely and I'll never forget her enthusiasm (and her adorable flower!). Thank you for an amazing experience, much better than any audio guide!! I loved it!!

Disorganized but the guide did his best.

The beginning of the tour was very disorganized. The station we all arrived at was closed which meant having to walk in the rain to a different station. I don’t know if they knew about the closure ahead of time or if it was a last minute change. Due to this we almost didn’t make it onto the train and literally had a minute to spare. Once we got off the train, the guide really did his best to talk with everyone and the walk from the train to the palace was much better. Also, skip the line tickets are a must!

Gabriella is amazing: knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and helpful.

Our tour guide Gabriella was amazing: thoroughly knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and helpful. Even after the tour ended, she stayed and patiently answered our questions about the Gardens and Petit Trianon, which were not covered under her parts of the tour. Highly recommended.

Audrey was excellent and it was so easy to find the meet point.

A really excellent and interesting tour, lots of info on Versailles and French history, art and architecture. Really easy to find the meeting point and so nice to then be led past all the queues without having to read all the signage and then be at the front.
