We booked private tours while in Paris because we were traveling with a person in a wheelchair. We made sure to book only tours that said they were wheelchair accessible. We were told to be ready for the driver at 7:45am. The driver showed up at 8:00am. When we arrived at Versailles, he didn't have the right tickets. We were seven adults and he had tickets for four adults and three children. Although he corrected this by buying additional tickets it did cause confusion at the entrance to the gardens and unnecessary delays. There was absolutely no advance planning put into the fact that we were traveling with someone in a wheelchair. While we understand the grounds are not perfect for a wheelchair, thought could have been put into to how to navigate the grounds (i.e. start at the palace and then work your way downhill through the gardens). We spent the first half of the day (about three to four hours) going uphill and downhill in the gardens, which was very difficult for the wheelchair and those who were pushing the wheelchair. Even after I expressed to him that we were done with the gardens and would like to head out to get lunch, he continued to recommend that we see different fountains in the garden area. We originally wanted to have lunch outside of the palace but were not able to do so because the guide was unsure of how many times we could leave and reenter the grounds. At one point the guide had to leave us to go fix our tickets for entry into the palace (remember he had four adult tickets and three children’s tickets). He left us at 12:10pm at one of the restaurants in the garden and we were told he would meet us back at this same restaurant for a 1:00pm tour of the palace. The day was going so poorly we were convinced that he would not be returning. Thankfully he did return but not until about 1:20pm. We then headed up to tour the palace. The guide had no idea how to access the palace with a wheelchair. Again, more confusion. At least at this point the guide had more knowledge about the inside of the palace than he did about the gardens. This tour had the potential to be great. Unfortunately it fell very short.
Response from Host, May 2023
Bonjour Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. A little precision and honesty: > When you book, please specify the number of adults and children in the group. Even though this is a private tour, this information is very important. Beyond changing entrance tickets, this allows us to adapt our service. If there are children, we provide a suitable seat, for example. We did not have this information from you despite our reminders. > Regarding wheelchair accessibility, we can adapt the tour. This requires that we have the information when you make your reservation. The gardens of Versailles are difficult with a wheelchair but the palace and the Trianon Domain can be more pleasant. We know how to adapt, and make the experience enjoyable. > We have nearly ten years of experience at the Palace of Versailles. It must be understood that it is not possible during the season to go out and re-enter the gardens several times. If you enter the gardens in the morning, remember to have lunch at the Domaine and not outside. > Only certified guides work in our team. Their license allows them to give comments in the palace and the gardens. This certification assures you of the quality of the comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit to the Palace. We have always had very positive feedback about Versailles private Day trip, it is reflected in all our 5-star reviews about that very same tour. All my best
Incredible experience
