What people are saying about Gallery of Coaches

This museum should be your first stop. It brings France's history to life. Fillipe our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it made for easy to follow the history in a chronological manner. Also, the gardens are incredible. I can only imagine in the spring when all is green and blooming

We booked a group Skip the Line tour of the palace and it was worth every penny! Barbara was our guide and was very knowledgeable and shared details about all aspects of the palace (and the revolution). Highly recommend.

Our guide, Isabelle, was so informative and entertaining with the stories of the kings, etc. at Versailles. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Francesco was a wonderful guide. He used 21st century lingo (Kardashians, photoshop) to explain 18th century life. Highly recommended.

Our guide did a wonderful job of creating a story that made the history come alive.
