Beyond belief beautiful and full of history. Driver was knowledgeable of area and funny too. Few minor things: 1. we booked this tour because it would pick us up at our hotel and we would not have to meet tour guide at central spot in Paris, but ended up that the driver showed up at our door and then led us on a 3/4 mile walk to his car, stating he couldn't get in our street which wasn't true 2. booked full day tour so we'd have more time touring the palace and estate, but drove up with others who were only doing half-day. Our driver turned them over to tour guide and they got into the palace right away -b 30 minutes before we did. Our driver waited with us until our tour guide showed up, but he was late so we just had to stand around and waste time for almost 45 minutes! 3. Since we had full day tickets, we were allowed inside Grand and Petit Trianon. Other tour companies then pick you up at that end of the estates but we had to retrace our steps and go back to the Group B entrance gate and wait for our new driver at the restaurant there. Our morning driver did not have the name of the afternoon driver for us or a contact phone number for him, so we were a bit worried, but he did show up on time with a description of us provided him by our morning driver. He was not as knowledgeable about the area and traffic/construction issues and so we went round and round in Paris traffic for 40 minutes when we were only blocks away from our hotel. But he did apologize profusely but we were very nervous since we just made it back by 6:50 pm when we were told we would be home by 5:30 pm as we had another tour at 7 pm! Just made it.
OK, but not worth the extra money for skip the line since we waited around anyway for a long time or for semi-private transportation as we ended up getting there before they opened up but then stood waiting around for our tour guide to show up he was tied up in traffic. Next time would just take a tour bus or the train. The crowds in the palace itself were horrible. with people pushing and there weer tons of steps. It is not at all considerate of handicapped people or even many benches to rest on for the elderly. While on the tour, iff you are short, you really can't see anything. Versailles is really worth the trip, but is not an activity or place for slower-moving, the elderly, people with mobility issues or claustrophobic people.
El transporte excelente, el servicio de guias inexistente, sólo entregan ticket de ingreso y equipo de audio en mal estado, la señalización de las salas insuficiente.
Aunque el tour incluye una espectaculo, el voucher no lo incluye y hay que pagarlo por separado, por lo que uno se siente defraudado en la compra.
Beim Vergleich Auto und Bahn spricht nur der Komfort der direkten Fahrt für das Auto. Einweisung war nicht zufriedenstellend. Info-Blatt stimmt nicht. Räume waren falsch bezeichnet und die Nummerierung stimmte nicht mit der vorhandenen Beschilderung überein. Zeitlich war man sehr eingeschränkt.
Man this place was crowded, and hot ! Still the audo tour was great and we were able to understand exactly what we were looking at. Driver courteous and knowledgeable. The meeting place in Frankfurt was not particularly well marked and Cab driver had no idea where it was, others arriving commented about the same issue so allow a bit of extra time.
The process of arranging the tour was excellent and the greeting at the Chateau worked well. The electronic devices are superb. Unfortunately our guide neglected to give us the tickets for Marie A Estate and we were unable to visit. Also, the traffic was quite bad and our return was 1 hour late
