Versailles is everything and more than we could have ever imagined. The gardens are magnificent which we were able to explore before entering the Palace. Our guide, Bob, was extremely informative and he made the history of France come alive. We would definitely recommend this trip especially being able to skip the line to not only get in but buying your ticket to get in. The line was incredibly long and it was only 10 o'clock in the morning and very hot.

SAM was our tour guide. He was amazing. He was a great storyteller and knew a lot about the history of the Palace and its previous occupants. He kept everyone in the group involved. He is very personable and engaging. He made our visit to the Palace much more educational and enjoyable than it would have been on our own.

Hannah was our tour guide. She was actually from London and had been in Paris for nearly a year. Very knowledgeable and took us through the gate and had a lovely tour of the Gardens with her. Then she tookus to the group gate for fast admission and made sure we were set with our audioguides. Definitely would recommend this excursion to Versailles.

Our guide was just amazing! So nice to meet a guide at a cafe and have them assist you onto the Metro
station. IF you do not speak the language or are familiar with the area
The place is over over- whelming... A guide is really helpful! The entire family learned SO much.
If only History teachers were that interesting!

Sam was a fantastic guide! This tour was well worth the skip the line feature alone! Sam's knowledge and personable demeanor was the icing on the cake! Definitely recommend.
