Great tour guide, total pro. Organized But lots of people. And the lunch was unnecessary, we could Only choose salmon or what ended up Being shoe leather-quality steak there are numerous restaurants on site you can walk in to. If you are willing to just metro it over (pretty easy) And want more independence I would not choose this tour and just reserve tickets. If you are really into French history and Marie Antoinette and want a long complete experience and want to not use metro then this is for you

Our guide was very experienced and knowledgeable. Versailles is huge and she knew the museum and gardens very well. Lunch was delicious and delightful. The all day tour is 'all day' and tiring so be prepared to walk comfortably through the marble and stone in the palace, steps, and over cobblestone, rocks, maybe some dirt as well if you explore the gardens. There is much to explore. Versailles has something for everyone. Enjoy.

I took the full day tour of Versailles. There was more than adequate time to see the palace and gardens and have lunch without rushing. This meant that the time in the palace was exceptionally information - due mainly to our guide Claire who knew everything about everything. Claire made the visit not only informative but interesting and entertaining with lots of fun facts and figures.
