This Tour was the perfect tour to get the information you needed and seeing the sights directly without wasting any time waiting in line or figuring out what you're looking at. We met up with the first guide in Paris outside of train station at Musee d'Orsay and she guided us all the way to Versailles where we met our second tour guide. She was very informative and patient. She gave us ample time to view sights and take pictures as well as giving us insightful information about the different areas of the garden and the palace itself. If there was one thing worth visiting while you're in Paris, I recommend taking this tour. The gardens are magnificent and breathtaking and the Hall of Mirrors was absolutely beautiful in all its sunlit grandeur. While there could have been more time spent exploring the gardens, the entire tour lasted about 3 hours and was the perfect amount of time to take in Versailles. Once the tour completed within the palace walls, you were free to explore the palace on your own or checkout the area. There are lots to see and do and it was absolutely great.Reviewed by: Christopher C, November 2013
Palace was great but do not use Dark Rome tour company as they made us walk 3 kilometres before getting to the palace as the train line was closed when they could have hired a bus for us to travel in. Very disappointing.Reviewed by: Kathleen S, November 2013
If one finds themselves with half a day in Paris and has not yet seen the palace at Versailles, then the this tour is certainly worth doing. The guide was very well spoken and informative and the "Skipping-the-line" aspect provides for a very efficient way to briefly glimpse at both the gardens and the palace. Be warned, however, that half a day is nowhere near long enough to adventure through and explore the grandeurs of Versailles. Hence this tour will no doubt leave the eager tourist wanting more.Reviewed by: Kowshik B, November 2013
Very Experience people, the tour guide was very knowledgeable,.Reviewed by: Juan C, November 2013
It was a nice tour bec our guide was really smart and knows her history. I just got a little bored in the end bec I'm not really the history type of person and just likes to take pics. going back to the city is quiet challenging bec u will be on your own, older people might get lostReviewed by: mychuby, November 2013
