Highly recommend. An intimate relaxed tour with a few other people and a knowledgeable, friendly guide. It was lovely to be able to ask our guide questions and to discuss French history and politics on the tour.

We had a great time. Isabella was very knowledgeable and giving just enough detail to hold our interest. The palace is beautiful. Worth the tour. We only had 11 people in our group

We purchased primarily for the skip the line, which was unnecessary at 9 AM on a Tuesday. The tour company was disorganized and our tickets were with a different guide so we entered the palace almost 30 minutes late. Issues with the headsets made it very difficult to understand the tour guide, as a result the pace felt very slow. The tour guide was very nice, but we should have just explored on our own.

This rating has nothing to do with our tour guide or the tour operator. However, the venue itself lets in far too many people into the palace to be safe. Unlike the Louvre which strictly enforces its mask policy, there was no one at the Palace of Versailles making sure masks were being worn. Many people wore their masks around their chin which was not appreciated. I could not wait to get out of there.
