We enjoyed this almost personalized guided tour as we were alone my husband and two children. Our guide answered all our questions and we recommend this agency with closed eyes.

Excellent guided tour of the palace of Versailles, very interesting and informative, as well as a great service through GetYourGuide! All around awesome experience.

Vladina was excellent! I wish we had more time to explore the rest of the Palace, but we were short on time. I’ll definitely do it again next time!

Very nice guide Anne-Sophie, very pleasant to listen to her stories :) Meeting place for departure not very easy to find when you arrive by car.

Our tour guide was amazing! So knowledgeable and interesting !
