Fantastic, knowledgeable, and very personable guide. Excellent pace and volume of information. Our teenagers were engaged and enjoyed all of the quirky facts our guide shared to keep them interested. Would recommend our guide and this tour.

Thank you very much for your comments which we are really happy to read. We are so pleased especially that your teenagers enjoyed it, and saw that history is fascinating and fun! We hope you all had a great time here in Paris and that we may see you, or your children, should you return someday!
Waste of money
Christine_M, July 2023
Horrible! Tip to all - these tickets do not include entrance into the gardens. You have to buy those separately . Furthermore , the mobile network is very poor at the chateau, so if you have downloaded anything, you won’t be able to access the audio guide! Waste of money and the customer service at Viator is terrible.
A thorough and fascinating look at the private life Marie Antoinette created for herself
Cynthia_E, July 2023
Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour quite interesting. It was great to be able to see another side to Marie Antoinette. The Hamlet was amazing.
Response from Host, July 2023
Thank you for your review! We are always so glad when our guests discover and love the private domain of Marie Antoinette, it's one of our favourite places and really allows us to understand her and her life. We hope you had a fabulous time here in Paris!
A lovely afternoon spent at The Petit Trianon and hamlet
Jenny_K, July 2023
We had a lovely afternoon walking through the Trianon and Hamlet. Our guide was great. It is a beautiful setting and wonderful stories. Even better to get the little train back up to the palace
Response from Host, July 2023
Thank you for your review, we are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your tour! We love the Domain of Marie Antoinette and are always delighted when others love it too! It is so beautiful and peaceful. We hope you had a wonderful stay here in Paris!
10/10 highly recommended
Cortney_B, June 2023
Truly exceptional tour. Ivan was absolutely fantastic. We were a little disappointed that the train wasn’t running and we were unable to “peek inside Marie Antoinette’s theater” as listed on the booking site, but otherwise an incredible experience, really well done. 10/10 would recommend
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you so much for your review and recommendation, which we are really happy to read and which we very much appreciate. We have shared your comments with Ivan and he is of course as delighted to read them as we are. Occasionally they close the door to Marie-Antoinette's little theatre and we have no warning of this. We are sorry that you missed it. The trains generally run every day but also from time to time they close without warning, we hope very much that these 2 things did not impact the quality of your visit. We hope that you had a wonderful stay here in Paris and would love to welcome you again should you ever return!
Not informative
CallieRae_S, May 2023
Our tour guide was nice but not informative about the subject. We did not learn many things and she went to quickly through the tour. She was unable to answer simple questions about the tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for your review, although we are very sorry to read it. We have discussed it with the guide who led your tour, as she is a very experienced guide who generally gets excellent reviews from our guests. We are sorry that you were disappointed with your visit, and we hope that we may have the chance to welcome you again on a future trip to Paris which will be 5*, as this is what we always strive for. We hope that you had a wonderful stay here.

Charleen_W, Sept 2021
Our tour guide was fantastic. He was so personable and very knowledgeable. We’ve been on 8 guided tours on this trip to France, and this was by far the best. I would recommend this tour for everyone
L endroit était magnifique et la guide super
Nous avons eu un gros problème sur le point de rencontre qui n était pas celui indiqué dans le mail Heureusement nous avons pu rattraper le groupe après 45 minutes de retard. Notre visite a été plus courte que prévu. La guide à été charmante car elle nous a accepté dans le groupe.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Thank you for your comments, we are sorry that you were not able to find the guide at the beginning of the tour, but very happy to read that you were able to join and that you enjoyed the tour and your guide. We hope that we will have the chance to welcome you again on future visits to Paris.

Le guide FORMIDABLE. Nous nous sommes trompés et au lieu du français nous avons pris l'anglais, il nous a quand même pris et nous a traduit tout au long de la visite. Grâce à lui nous avons passé une agréable visite. Encore un grand merci pour sa patience et sa gentillesse.
