Isabella was so knowledgeable, entertaining, and passionate about our tour! There were very long lines but our crew was able to get us in with no wait. We felt like VIPs. The devices worked perfectly and the entire booking process was quick and easy. I couldn’t be happier with the experience!

Good tour, ours was small due to strike many people missed their train from Paris! So plan a few routes to get there in case. Guide was Isabella, very bubbly and full of good facts. Downside is abviously too fast! There's too much to look at and admire here and you can't go back to relook. If you are Short on time do a tour otherwise I would recommend do it yourself to admire the beauty at your own pace

Our guide was amazing and offered so much context to what we were looking at in each room at Verseilles (and there is A LOT to look at). Afterwards, you get to return to areas you wanted a longer look at,or explore the gardens. Unfortunately, since it was winter, the gardens were cold and many of the statues covered. There is more than enough to see on your own the rest of the day if you have time! Skip the line was essential. Even in winter, on a cold day, the line STILL stretched far beyond the gates.
