We were very pleased with our tour guide. Knowledgeable re history et al yet threw in bits of background and perspectives that brought things to left. Great tour.

I had a wonderful tour and the Paris TRIP tour operators were very helpful when I got confused about my ticket. The gardens tour is only included when there is no magic fountain show. In any case I spent hours wandering about the place and could have spent much longer. Our guide Olivier related a number of interesting stories about the palace and about French nobility. I learned a lot. This was definitely a highlight of my trip to France.

I think our tour guide was very knowledgeable but the earphone system they used was very hard to hear and understand. I have taken many tours with the same type of microphone system and haven’t had such bad reception. We did say something to our tour guide and she tried to rectify it but nothing worked. The guide may have to put the microphone under their mask for it to work. Not sure. But it certainly took away from the tour by not being able to understand the stories she had to tell. She brought us through all the important rooms to see which were amazing. However, we paid to see gardens but couldn’t because there was some sort of fountain show that day. We would have had to pay additionally.

The guide wasn't too obvious and didnt had a sign on it but after we contacted the company we were "collected". The presentation of the guide was very nice with lot of informations and good english. We liked it.
