We were picked up in front of our apartment on time in a beautiful Mercedes van with glass windows on the ceiling! Very comfortable and much better viewing than an enclosed van.

Rozeen was our driver and guide. She drove through Paris and pointed out landmarks along the way. Her English is perfect and she is a very good driver.

When we arrived at Versailles, she had a parking space close to the entrance reserved. Found a nearby place to buy water and use the bathroom.

We had headsets so we could hear her at all times, even in crowds. That was very helpful. She expertly led us through the major areas of the Palace
It was an excellent tour.

The tour included a visit to the gardens, but we opted out as it was a cold, rainy December day. However, we did look at and talk about the gardens from the upper floors where we had a great view.

I highly recommend this tour if you want first class service. Fred in the office was very responsive, and everything went as I hoped. It was pricey but well worth the money to give our grandchildren the best possible experience. Rozeen is a terrific guide!

Private VIP tour is highly recommended.
Included pick up from and drop off at accommodation location.
Private limousine transport comfortable and on time.
Fred was very knowledgable (spoke fluent English) on the history of Paris as we passed through areas of historical interest on the way to Versailles.
Personal guidance with good quality audio earphones through each of the rooms of Versailles Palace as well as Marie - Antoinette Private Estate with time for us to explore both the Gardens of Versailles Palace and Estate of Marie - Antoinette.
Make sure you go on a day that the Musical Fountains are playing.
Excellent quality lunch menu to be able to choose from.

My daughter and I could not have enjoyed this day more. Communication from the very start was prompt and helpful. Needing to shift dates last minute was accommodated with extremely friendly understanding. Our tour host, Fred, was exceptional. His knowledge is without bound and engagingly presented keeping us enthralled throughout. Our tour included a meal we overenjoyed. I was stuffed. It was fantastic. Couldn't more highly recommend this group. Thank you to all who contributed to our experience.

Taking a private tour was a great choice. Our guide started providing historical information as soon as she picked us up at our hotel. There was no rush and every question was answered thoroughly. She spoke excellent English and took care of us skipping the line ups and always in the front for the best opportunity for pictures. She provided headphones and talked to us from start to finish providing an excellent understanding of life in the palace, gardens, Grand Trianon, Petite Trianon and the Village. We never felt rushed. Our guides desire was for us to enjoy our visit. And we did. Our only regret was missing the gift shop.

One can not find flaw with the experience of the “Versailles Palace & Marie-Antoinette's Estate Private Guided Tour with Lunch”. Our tour was booked via AMEX Platinum concierge, and we chose the most comprehensive of offerings. This still exceeded our every expectation.

Fred was our guide, and the wisdom and passion he promulgated through the tour entirety I feel will not be paralleled in my lifetime.

We were picked up from our hotel in Paris by VIP transport while Fred was building the French history along the way. He has intimate knowledge of his country, painting vivid imagery of the beauty of France juxtaposed with the austere times of instability.

When we arrived at the palace, we entered through an exclusive entrance allowing us to stay ahead of crowds. Fred was able to answer my unconventional questions about symbology, popular myths, religion at the time, and even the unique origins of the rare woods of the furniture in the palace. At the same time the tour was engaging, with Fred asking thoughtful questions as to what would be next, then furthering the history.

Lunch was relaxing and we were encouraged to order anything off of the menu. There were no disappointments in the culinary experience either.

We finished the tour in Marie Antoinette’s estate and were still awed by the continued opulence.

This tour with Fred was so intricate and comprehensive, that when we later visited the Louvre with a different company and tour guide the next day, it truly demonstrated what we already knew… Fred is an amazing guide that when seeing Paris for a premium tour, is what we perceive the only way to go.

By far the one of the best tours I have ever done. Our guide Fred picked us up at the hotel and took us to the Palace. We were visiting during the Pension reform stakes which paralyzed the city. No buses or trains were running during this time which made traffic unbearable. Fred contacted us the night before to alert us the strike would delay his arrival at our hotel. He arrived just as he had forecasted the night before. We navigated our way to the palace. The strikes unfortunately also affected the opening of the entrance gates to the Palace. It was a cold and rainy day but Fred secured us a seat in a warm coffee shop just outside the entrance. he waited for the gates to open and got us our tickets while we waited with a hot coffee. He ran back got us and off we went.
Once inside he provided headsets for us to her hime through his microphone on his lapel. This seemed odd since the tour included just my wife and I. Once inside I understood why, there are a lot of people in small rooms and it would have been difficult to hear Fred. This way he had a direct signal to us and didn't have to raise his voice for us to hear. Genius I tell you.
Fred was so knowledgeable that it made the tour fly by. He gave us details on each and every aspect of the palace. He provided information on even the details that are often overlooked. He did this all with a sense of humor and calm delivery that made the tour seem like you were guided by a friend and not like you were in a boring history class.
I absolutely recommend this tour and a must to request Fred. Tell him Xavier and Delisa say hi when you see him.
