The tour was very informative, I just wish it was a bit longer! I felt we missed so much that would have been so interesting to have explained by someone who knows the history.

The tour itself was excellent and our guide extremely knowledgeable. Overall Versailles Palace was awesome. The disappointment was the gardens were as many areas appeared to be dead and not lush as expected. Fountains were shut off with the exception of the two updated fountains that were not what I was hoping to see. So many incredible fountains with great statues but not a single one was on. I was hoping for an awesome experience and with such a large palace saw some historic rooms but more of the palace should be open for touring. Although the palace itself was extraordinary overall I wouldn’t make an effort to go back unless the gardens and fountains were in full splendor.

Trip out there on a large comfy bus was easy and very quick. Valerie, our lively guide, was sweet, thoughtful and related to her eager audience perfectly. Great trip from 1:00 to six thirty… had a good lunch also. Would recommend to friends!

The time frame of this trip to Versailles was perfect. Staff was friendly. Our guide at Versailles was Francesco. He was knowledgeable and funny. His stories about the Louis made the palace come alive.
