Such a gorgeous palace - half day not enough time. We enjoyed the recorded descriptions in each room.

Our family of 6 was very much looking forward to the Versailles expedition, but two of us came down with covid on the day of the trip, so we couldnt go. La Vacanza Travel and the excursion company refused a refund

We went on a chilly Sunday morning. Was a smaller group. Pickup was easy to find. Guide and driver were informative and helpful. Trip was short to the Palace. Due to covid we practically had a private tour. It was my third time visiting and it just gets better. Plenty of time to sight see. Quick trip back to Paris and managed to see a few more things later that day.

Tour very disorganized. Had to wait on bus for almost 30 minutes when leaving Versatile. Do not know why?? Paris Vision did not seem to know what they were doing from start to finish.


07 Sep, 2022

The guides where rude. Only gave us 3 hours because they were late. Want my money back!!! The bus was uncomfortable and the guides coming back were awfully rude to everyone.
