I was able to catch up with the group, but the amount of walking and the pace really tired me out. The tour guide was informative and very nice. I would recommend her to any other travelers. Versailles is so big I would get in better shape if I tour even part of it again. I loved it.

It was a good trip . They have few options to return to Paris in the afternoon or evening to go see Trianon or not so you can customize the trip as you wish. Our only disappointment is that we didn't get to see the fountains show and that was the main reason we booked the tour on the weekend The fountains were not running when we finished the palace tour . The bus left at 2pm to go back to Paris and the next fountains show was at 2.30 pm :(

Barbara a fost ghidul perfect. Mi-a plăcut ca știa foarte bine și multe informații despre Versailles și avea un zâmbet frumos. Dar,, ca să fim corecți, la această experiență mi-a plăcut și șoferița. In Paris este imposibil să te deplasezi, iar ea ne-a introdus prin străzile acelea cu un autocar imens, de parcă era cu o mașinuță Smart. In consecință, vă recomand acest serviciu cu toată încrederea, căci sunt profesioniști. Noi am beneficiat de ei in data de 26.07.2022.
