I booked this tour a few months ago. They offer a good cancellation policy so it was stress free. Took the RER C train there. The office to check in is just a block to the right. Very friendly staff. Nils, our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Great tour guide, told us histories and stories behind each room. My two kids, 11 and 7 year old both enjoyed it. Definitely worth it.

The tour guide was fantastic. We learned so much on this tour, and we really enjoyed the experience. The guide helped to put it all in context. I would highly recommend this tour. Keep in mind that you will need to pay for additional tickets to visit the gardens, Trianon, etc.
