We booked this tour at the last minute on our first arrival day in Paris and they managed to include us in the English half-day tour the next morning. Corrine was our guide and she was very thorough with the information and history of the palace providing a glimpse into the lives of the royalties, especially Louis XIV, Louis XV and the ill-fated couple Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. It was a short tour of the important rooms and chambers of the huge palace. Since we visited at winter, the garden was not as colorful. But a short walking tour by Corrine was enough to give us an idea of the huge expanse of the gardens and its fountains and statues and would sparked our interest in another visit at a different time of the year. This is a great tour conducted by people who know the history and who love their culture. Thank you for a great day!

The tour was very good in the language selected, Spanish. The pace was quick, but just enough time to see everything. If this is the highlight of your Paris trip, a whole day trip may be warranted. There is dinging on the grounds and a very good restaurant down by the largest of the garden ponds of water. Worth the money paid. Bus picks up in front of hotel Pullman, which is IN front of Eifel tower, and returns you to this location also.

It was a beautiful bright day but very cold in Paris. We took the tour parting from the hotel Pullman, which is right next to the Eiffel Tower. So you get to take pictures of the tower as a plus. The tour guides were all friendly and accessible and made the checking in and boarding process simple. The night before I got my confirmation info on my email. The ride was smooth with a few comments about our surroundings and descriptions of what was to come in Versalles. You need the Parisian health pass to enter the palace and they will check for it at the security point. Once at Versailles it was a glorious beautiful bright morning but very cold. Before going in your guide will give you earphones and a transmitter. This is so you can hear him well and he doesn’t have to scream or compete with other excursions. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The king chambers are a beauty, specially the chapel and the Mirror hall. The gardens are sublime and you have time to walk around and take them in. At least the ones nearby as the gardens are huge and could take the entire day. The ride back was pleasant and since we returned to the Eiffel Tower we decided to go visit that site next. It was very pleasant and educational. Note: beware in the parking lot area at Versailles to go back to the bus there are several sellers selling souvenirs and they are very pushy to the point of annoyance.

It took too long to get into the palace, over an hour. Then once we got there, we felt rushed. They didn’t give us enough free time to view and enjoy the garden. I would’ve seen more in the same amount of time if I didn’t have to wait for my guide
