Bus transfer very convenient, on time. However, we were NOT told there would be additional stops to pick up clients at different hotels. Where was this option? On return, with only 3 of us left, would not stop at our hotel which we directly passed. Not accommodating. Also, I prefer tour guides who provide information about the event/site we are seeing. We basically had a chaperone for pick up and drop off. No discussion provided on palace history/facts. Booking said we would see palace, then gardens. It was reversed. Had to find our own maps (nothing provided by the guide here). No suggestions on what to expect from the paths, how often watershows run, how quickly/slowly to walk thru the palace (we went too fast, and they docents will not allow you to double back, but we did and found another set of rooms we missed. Do your research. Bring a sandwhich, snacks and eat in the garden. No info on this was provided on this either (or accurately).
Don’t miss this tour! Stu & Niki go above and beyond to make sure their tour guests have all their expectations met! With all the difficulties and changes associated with traveling during COVID, they were so patient and helpful in answering our many questions long before the trip even began. They were very responsive and made a number of accommodations from helping us with private transportation to offering to hold our luggage during our tour. Once we arrived in Paris the bike tour, visit to the market, picnic lunch on the Grand Canal and guided tour of Versailles exceed our expectations! Our tour guide Nichola, was simply amazing. So informative and funny all in one. I have traveled all over the world and this is not a tour you want to miss! If only Stu and Niki could operate all the tour companies in Paris! They know how to do it best!!!
Our tour guide was incredible! Great knowledge, spoke several languages AND stood in line so we didn't have to. Due to Covid 19 non ticket holders and tour groups have to stand in the same line (for hours!) Our guide stood in line for us while we visited the Gardens and were very detailed and prompt with meeting times and locations. Would highly recommend this tour. Enjoy!
Everything was wonderful. The bus ride was a breeze, entrance was easy and quick. The palace and the gardens were amazing.
Very nice experience :) The guy with us he was excellent and very helpfull. Its worth it!
