The palace was beautiful and the information delivered by Tundi, our guide was detailed and interesting. Our minivan driver, Gamini, was very courteous and helpful. The timing was a bit short and we really couldn’t enjoy the gardens. A few funny anecdotes/stories would have helped to lighten the subject. Overall it was fun if you like history or that time period. Kids were very bored after 20 mins of the tour.

The guide we were meeting was running late so our driver drove us around Versailles for 30 minutes. Then at the meeting spot we still waited for 15 minutes.

I was not able to understand what our tour guide said. She had a very thick French accent. Otherwise the tour was ok.

The guide spent much too much time talking --a full 20 minutes before taking us into one of the rooms. There was no opportunity to ask questions. His English was hard to understand. He always spoke in the present tense, whether talking about past or present events, which made things even more confusing. The group was very large which meant that if you got left behind he didn't notice. We finally left the tour and went through the rooms ourselves, reading the explanations provided, which was a lot more pleasant and useful.

Skipping the line was great. We specifically probably overpaid as we intended to stay the night at a local hotel. We ended up not using the transport at all. The tour was about an hour once you clear the gate. The tour itself was fine, but the benefit was really having a guide lead you through te chaos in the beginning. I am sure that the headphones provided by Versailles gives you more detail. I recommend this tour and then also getting headphones from the organization and walking around. Then you will get the guided overview and also then be able to go deeper. I guess I was disappointed that La Vacanza Travel didn’t offer to refund a portion of the fee as I didn’t end up using their transport since they could not take any bags.
