I attended the Versailles Full Day trip on Sunday, 16 September 2012. The guide Julian was AMAZING! He knew so much about the subject matter and was attentive to our needs as a group. It was a beautiful day in Versailles and seeing the fountains and water show in the afternoon was delightful! Thanks :) Jo

I highly recommend booking through ParisTrip.com for the Versailles full day tour. Our guide, Geraldine, was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We had enough time to see the palace without feeling rushed, and the place where we had lunch was pretty good! It was nice that price of lunch was included as part of the package.

Geraldine who was our guide took very good care of us and we felt very relaxed in her care. The water show was really great and the rooms were magnificent.

We had 8 people in our group for the tour. The tour guide was on time, professional but friendly, and extremely knowlegagle about the history. She took care of all our needs during the tour. We got a lot more out of the visit having a knowlegable and considerate tour guide with us. We had to fight off others who tried to took advantage of our tour guide experience. Our lunch was average. We rate the tour exceptional.

We were very pleasantly surprised that our tour included the two of us, one other group of two, and our excellent guide (I think her name was Michelle?) Our car was roomy and comfortable, the travel time was shorter than expected, our tour was amazing and our guide was terrific! We had a GREAT tour!! The lunch stop was delicious, too! We very much enjoyed the guided tour of the palace inside and out, of the trianons, and of Marie Antionette''s hamlet. This was a very fun and informative tour and we will highly recommend this company to any and all friends/family traveling to Paris, as well as give our highest recommendation on TripAdvisor, which, is where we found you in the first place! Thank you!!!!

Again- another wonderful day trip from Paris !! Our driver picked us up at our apartment right on time . The small group, just eight, meant that we had personal service and access to a knowledeable guide who could answer our granddaughter''s questions. The queen''s hamlet was beautiful,too. Lunch was delicious grilled salmon.

The tour guide was very informative & knowledgeable about Versailles. It was truly a delightful day! Lunch on the grounds at a quaint cafe was a very nice break. I highly recommend the tour to anyone. It really takes a full day to experience Versailles!

Our full day tour of Versailles was a memorable highlight of our recent trip to Paris. This is the first organized tour we have ever taken and it was well worth the money. With only six guests each of us was able to interact with our guide. The guide was a wealth of information on French history and I learned a lot and was able to ask any question in an intimate setting. The tour was well paced so that we could see so much of the grounds but still enjoy the day. We enjoyed the lunch stop and the casual stroll though the gardens. If I return to Paris I would enjoy booking another tour with you. The small van tour really suited us, the guide was educated and efficient, and your services was professional. Tour was exactly as represented. Merci Beaucoup!

We really enjoyed our full-day tour of Versailles! Our tour guide, Roseanne was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic - truly, she made the day so special! She knew all about French history and had many interesting facts to share with us. We particularly enjoyed the delicious lunch in the restaurant on the palace grounds and we also loved seeing Marie Antoinette''s hamlet/farm. We would like to thank Paris Trip for a great experience and we highly recommend the Versailles full-day tour with Roseanne!

We had a wonderful day with our tour guide Geraldine. She was filled with valuable information and great stories about Versailles and took such good care of us on what turned out to be a very rainy day. The tour itself was fabulous. I would highly recommend to anyone considering 1/2 day vs. full day Versailles - full day is the way to go. We were able to see so much including the gardens, the smaller palaces, and most especially Marie Antoinette''s quaint but oh so beautiful hamlet. And the van transported us from place to place so we didn''t waste vaulable time walking to get from one place to the other. We would have never been able to see all the grounds in a day otherwise and it would have been a shame to miss this beautiful place! Thanks again to Geraldine for making our trip so memorable!

My 12-year-old granddaughter and I took this tour and we were both delighted. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. We had time to explore the gardens, enjoy the water show, and have a lovely lunch. The tour included a trip to Marie-Antoinette''s hamlet which was a joy. Wonderful.

| Feedback on 4/13/2011 from John|
I really enjoyed this tour and our guide, Olivier. I learned so much. It was great to bring history "alive." Mu only complaint was when in the main palace of Versaille, it was very difficult to hear Olivier because of all the other people and the noise. I feel like I missed a great deal of important historical information. I saw some guides walking with microphones that looked like they were remote and they were speaking to thee tourists into their earphones. I would suggest getting something like that. In any event, the tour and Olivier were GREAT!!

This trip was excellent. Our guide, Julian, started talking as soon as we got into the car and told us wonderful things about Paris before we even got to Versailles. He gave us an excellent tour and I would recommend him to anyone and will recommend him to friends in the US. He made this tour worth every penny. We asked him questions at lunch about Normandy because we had such a poor guide for our visit with your company to the Normandy beaches. He answered our questions about Versailles, Normandy and many questions about living in France. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Simply BRILLIANT, the tour guide (Rosanna) I think & hope that I can remember her name was simply FANTASTIC. Her English & her knowlege was A+++ & the tour was done just without fault from the on time pick up to fantastic tour & even the lunch venue & menu was superb. Thank you so much for everything, I WILL be back to take further tours with you. Jenny Behrends (Australia)

This was a highlight of our stay while in Paris. Our day started out on time being met at our Hotel Du Lourve. Small group and the driver/ tour director set the tone for a friendly group! We were given a wonderful experience when at Versailles. It was very crowded however our Tour Director got us thru and we were able to visit the Gardens too ( given an additional ticket to do so on a Sunday). I would recommend this tour and this tour company. PS. DO NOT USE Isango found on the internet.
| Feedback on 7/24/2012 from KELLEE|
We really enjoyed this tour and having a small group helped. Lunch was nice however the second half of the tour was cut short due to what the majority of the group wanted. I would of liked to have the option to walk the farm.

"The Palace of Versailles"
The chateau and the Gardens of Versailles which count among
the most prestigious monuments of the world's artistic heritage
and are certainly the finest and most complete achievement of 17th
century French art. King Louis XIII's former hunting lodge was transformed
and enlarged by his son Louis XIV, who installed his court and government
extract from the orientation guide of the Chateau of Versailles.
Gardens & The Park"
Laid out between 1661 and 1700 by Le Notre, who levelled and
drained the land and designed perspectives, groves, the canal and
parterres, Versailles is the model of formal gardens " a la francaise
". It is adorned with marble, bronze and lead statues, and with
fountains. The antique myth of Apollo, the sun-god, is ever present.
Beyond the formal gardens arranged in the Petit parc (185 acres),
the extensive Grand Parc provides opportunities for pleasant strolls
or long walks.
