Meeting point

Meet your guide outside the entrance/exit to Metro Invalides, Esplanade des Invalides, 75007 Paris (lines 8 and 13). There is only one exit from the metro station which takes you on to rue de l'Université. Directly outside the exit you will see a news stand, and a yellow M on top of a pole, indicating the metro. Your guide will be waiting by the news stand. If you are travelling by RER C train, take the exit "rue Esnault Pelterie" and walk straight ahead until a crossroad (rue de l'Université and rue Constantine crossroad) where you can see the yellow M. The news stand will be on your right, next to the metro exit. Please be at the meeting point 15 minutes before your tour departure time. Your guide will be wearing an orange badge on an orange lanyard. You do not need to print your voucher. Please just ensure you have a copy of it on your phone so we can check you in at the meeting point.

My wife and I and two of our adult children did this tour to Versailles through Get Your Guide. We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated being taken care of so well during this tour. Earlier in the week we had done the Louvre and Orsey museums just using the audioguides and doing the tours ourselves. It was very refreshing and helpful to have a guide for Versailles as the place is massive. Sylvane (sp) was our guide and she was amazing. We also appreciated doing the tour transportation to Versailles via the train and Metro from Paris vs. doing the buses as we controlled when we left as we stayed longer to rent a golf cart (which we recommend) to check out more of the outside/garden areas.

It's a great way to get to Versailles and learn about all the amazing history. The train ride is easy, led by a Guide so you don't get lost. The tour is very detailed and in depth so if you're a history buff you'll love it. We had our entire family with us, including little kids , so we had to give them some activities and snacks to keep them going, but the teenagers and adults were into it the whole time.

Our guides were fantastic. One guide meets you at the meeting point and takes you by train to Versailles; was given very specific instructions and was very helpful. Could have probably gotten an earlier train had everyone been on time. The guide for the rest of the day was so great we ended up extending for the afternoon. It is extremely busy so keep an eye on the guide. Great tour, lots of walking.
