Tour Guide company- extremely bad customer service
Anabel_F
, Jan 2022
We had this tour booked and we were coming from Paris. The trains were extremely packed and we got there late. The tour guide didn’t wait for us or even leave teh tickets with the gate. They just left inside the palace with out tickets so when we got there we could not go in. The lady who was part of this company who called us did not even try to do anything for us, just said no we were late sorry. When I went to the Versailles palace ticket office they told me that in this situation the tour guide should have left out tickets with them so that they could atleast grant us entrance, but it seems the tour guide prob just sold out tickets to someone else. We were extremely upset that we didn’t get to go to Versailles palace, as the next day we were already leaving Paris.

I have visited Versailles before without a guided tour and man.. what a difference! You learn and enjoy so much more with a tour. Our guide Isabelle was great! She really made the tour unforgettable. Totally worth it!

The operators with Viator were amazing! We were running late and called them, they were able to tell us out ETA and then had their tour guide bring us our tickets to the entrance. They even called to make sure we made it okay. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much and enjoyed the tour.

Great experience
Greg_P

This was by far the highlight of our first official day in Paris. We booked the English guided tour, which proved to be an excellent decision. The tour guide gave us a detailed description of each of the most famous portions of the Palace. I left wanting to know more about the French revaluation. Also, the garden is huge! We were kind of caught off guard by it’s size, because the view of it from inside of the palace does not give it justice. We ended up renting an electric golf cart, and exploring it after our tour was completed. Overall, great experience, and would recommend. We’ll most likely visit the garden again during the spring time.

Wonderful interior and exterior tour.
Michael_B
, Nov 2021
The tour of the interior with Laura was superb, excellent communication and very well-informed/informative, both on the history of the buildings and the events associated with it. We also very much enjoyed the grounds and the superb trees, both ancient and solitary (Oak from 1668) and the planned and manicured avenues.
