Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

A breathtaking product of 17th-century France, the Palace of Versailles sits on top of the château, hunting lodge and original hunting grounds of King Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV eventually took over and commissioned the building of what the world now knows as the Palace of Versailles. Louis XIV even destroyed the nearby village for the expansion of the Château de Versailles. Containing over 2,000 rooms and 2,000 windows, the Palace of Versailles is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The Hall of Mirrors, Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Measuring almost 70 yards long and adorned with 357 mirrors, the Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the palace. The mirrors in this room were designed to reflect light and protect the walls from smoke. Only a few candles were required in order to reflect candlelight throughout the entire room. The Treaty of Versailles, which marked the end of World War I, was signed in the Hall of Mirrors on June 28th, 1919.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

After touring the palace, you’ll experience the spellbinding Gardens of Versailles. Inspiring gardens all over the world, the meticulously-manicured Gardens of Versailles occupy a total area of almost 2,000 acres. Thousands of trees were transported from all over France by entire regiments of the French army to create these gardens. The gardens contain over 400 sculptures and 1,400 fountains.

I understand some of the frustrations posted in the bad reviews. We were left unaware of a cancelled Catacombs tour because my e-mail account was frozen for security (Thanks Microsoft). Sometimes, meeting point descriptions tend to be vague. On this particular tour we were simply handed a train ticket and left to find our way back to Paris after the tour. Yet with all of these shortcomings, I still recommend The Tour Guy. Skipping the line was worth the money itself. Our tour guide, Ferit, was extremely knowledgeable and had a way of delivering the info that reminds you of your favorite fun teacher. Ferit guided us through the Louvre expertly, so we were pleased to learn he would be with us for Versailles. Most importantly, after being warned by Ferit to keep our personal possessions secure, (I honestly thought I was) he thwarted a pickpocket who was in the process of helping himself to the contents of my travel pouch. Thank you so much, Ferit!!! You are amazing!

We have previously used this company when we visited Italy. I did not hesitate to book with them when we were planning a trip to Paris and London. When covid destroyed our trip, we had to cancel. We received an email that we would be refunded. I have waited 3 months and have not received our money back. All other tours by different companies were quickly refunded. I am so upset that they are ghosting their past clients and future ones during these hard times. We don't know if or when we can travel again and like others, need this refund.

Skipping the long lines in the rain was worth the price alone, however, our guide was great too! She told the history as an interesting human story. If the weather had been better we would have appreciated the ability to tour the grounds on our own pace and return separately.

This tour included the round trip train ride to and from Versailles as well as the skip the line ticket. The skip the line ticket advantage is a must! I can’t say enough great things about our guide Ferit! He accompanied us on the train to the Palace and made sure we passed the ticket checkers check 😂. His knowledge of the Palace and French history in general is astounding! I highly recommend any tour that Ferit leads!
