A must do if you really want to see Versailles in a day.
Helen_J, Sept 2023
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! The golf cart tour is the only to view the gardens. We took the train out from Paris which was running late. Concerned we were able to contact our guide through the phone number provided and informed him. The location to meet our guide Phillip was very easy to find. Versailles is huge. The gardens and fountains are beautiful. Phillip was very informative, interesting and knowledgeable. We were there on a Sunday and he was able to get us to the fountains as they were going off. Inside the Palace, Phillip was able to weave us through all the crowds and position us to view the rooms then inform us of various events that took place. He pointed out one room which was not open for viewing but you could somewhat see into, was where Benjamin Franklin came to ask the King for money to support the American Revolution.
Very good!

Vivien was a very good guide, giving lots of context and history to everything we saw. Highly recommended.
Andrew_C, Sept 2023
We had an incredible tour guide named Alex! Lively, funny, great explanations! Just an incredible tour!!!
We were able to see most...
Patricia_B, Sept 2023
We were able to see most of the gardens by renting the golf cart Our guide was very knowledgeable and nice
Excellent Versailles private tour with Grigor
Tess_M, Sept 2023
Excellent introduction and very informative. Grigor shared his abundance of knowledge about Versailles, fantastic at guiding us to the right spots through the crowds, no waiting at any time, thank you
Great guide, meh gardens
Brent_D, Sept 2023
Anna was a terrific guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. There was some confusion about our tickets but that was cleared up quickly. The Palace was over the top opulent, the gardens not so much. None of the fountains were working and it felt more like a desert in the 33c weather.
Great experience and seamless
Ra_K, Sept 2023
Terrific tour by Phillip, we all enjoyed it, including our three year old. We were met exactly on time, then taken to our guide who had already checked out a golf cart to take us around the garden. The guide was knowledgeable and charming, really understood what we were hoping to see.
Request that your guide wears DEODORANT!
Carolina_M, Sept 2023
We were so excited to see the garden in our golf cart UNTIL we were assigned to our guide who smelled… I immediately went on the app and requested they changed my guide but NO ONE REPLIED. No one contacted me and I was STUCK in that unpleasant situation. I will say , he was knowledgeable and enthusiastic but unfortunately we couldn’t fully enjoy the experience due to his lack of hygiene. So if you’re gonna pay this much please request that the operator at least provides you with someone who understands the experience that you’re looking for.

Meeting Gregori and learning about the property and history. Gregori is a master! I would recommend Gregori and this wonderful guided tour to anyone wanting a special one-of-a-kind experiences.
Well worth the price!
Ricardo_O, Aug 2023
Debated doing this tour because it is certainly not cheap… But it was so worth it! Alex was magnificent, the rare mix of a guide with both an exceptional amount of knowledge and the ability to present it as a fun and captivating story. I wish I could tour the whole country learning from a guide that talented! Not sure if it’s possible to request a specific guide and maybe others are that good too, but if you’re lucky enough to tour with him, you’ll be glad you splurged on this!
Blerta was SUPER! Best tour ever
Salam_H, Aug 2023
Blerta made this experience “more than wonderful” our kids had a great time, we had a blast and it was so much fun; driving the cart to the vast and incredible gardens was such a special experience and all the information and learning we have received of Versaille is unforgettable We had 4 tours in Paris during our stay and this tour to Versaille with Blerta was definitely inspiring, educational and it was the best!
Brilliant combination of a golf cart plus a wonderful guide!
JOANNE_M, Aug 2023
I highly recommend this tour! Our guide NEV is excellent, very knowledgeable and entertaining too! The golf cart plus a wonderful tour guide is a perfect combination which made our Versailles experience very memorable !
Overall a good tour: great guide, but time was short changed.
Rupa_S, Aug 2023
Hi. We did the private tour of Versailles palace with gold tour of the gardens. Our guide was very good, really got the kids engaged and did a great job. My only complaint is that the tour was supposed to be 3hours, but it was really only 2 hours. We checked in at 2:15pm for a 2:30 tour…but our golf carts weren’t ready until 3:10. Garden tour was only 50min, as we had timed palace tickets for 4pm, and we were done with the palace at 5:15pm. Overalll good and it’s very helpful to have a private tour with kids…but I felt that the time was not well planned and a bit short changed.
Absolutely amazing
Michelle_K, Aug 2023
Our tour guide Anna was fantastic. Everything was professional, timely, and informative. I Highly recommend
Totally Worth It!
Mollie_l, Aug 2023
Fantastic way to see Versailles. The golf cart tour of the gardens was one hour and we saw so much more than we would have on foot. Our guide was so knowledgeable and pleasant. With her, it was easy to see the inside too despite the crowds as she knew how to navigate and she is the highlights. Get a glass of the fresh squeezed orange juice !
Versailles golf cart & private tour was 10/10
Robyn_B, Aug 2023
Grigor was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable & friendly..would definitely recommend him. Best way to beat the crowds & have personalised tour
Incredible Tour Thanks to Anatole
Lauren_S, Aug 2023
Anatole was an incredible guide! It was our first time in France and although we had limited knowledge of french history Anatole's story telling ability made us all feel as if we were experts by the time we left. His animated and warm personality also made the three hours fly by as he was more than happy to answer all of our questions as well as stop for an abundance of picture opportunities. Even beyond this tour, we had run into Anatole a couple days before at a different location while looking for a different tour guide from the same company. Anatole took the time to make sure we found our guide before he left on his tour and even assured us that if our guide did not show up he was more than happy to let us join his group. We are so thankful for his kindness and would recommend him (and this company) to everyone we know. If you are wondering if you should splurge on either the private tour or the golf cart tour I cannot recommend it enough. We did both and although I'm sure we would have enjoyed it no matter what, it was beyond worth the money spent to be able to see more of the grounds, ask questions, and stop to take pictures at our own pace.
Excellent experience
MaryAnn_C, Aug 2023
Our guide Grigor was amazing and so knowledgeable. He really took the time to get to know us and our interests. It was a huge highlight of our trip.
Great day touring the Palace at Versailles
Thomas_C, July 2023
The Palace grounds were so amazing! So beautifully laid out. Our guide was fantastic. His knowledge of the property was excellent! He was very thoughtful and made sure we were comfortable. This an an excellent tour. I advise that you book with the golf carts, especially if you’re not fit.
Great Day at Versailles!
Jody_C, July 2023
Philip was AMAZING! HE was careful to make sure we were on time to see fountain experiences in the garden and was so informative throughout the gardens and palace. We would highly recommend!
