My large group of 14 planned a European vacation and Paris was the last stop for a few days. I had done a LOT of research as to Paris tour companies and pricing. And, interestingly, SEVERAL companies were already booked solid for the time we needed and could not accommodate such a large group. Luckily, I came across Private Tours... More

Corinne picked us up at our Paris hotel and made the Versailles entrance and tour smooth and stress free, despite the large throngs inside and out. We had a wonderfully memorable tour of the chateau, gardens, and orangerie. Corinne was professional and informative and included many facts and historical references not only of Versailles but also about life and culture... More

We had requested a specific guide, but on the first day of our tour, another guide named Gigi showed up. Though skeptical, as I hadn't read any reviews about him,we headed off on our journey. Wow! We were so impressed with his knowledge. We were in Paris 14 years prior, and didn't learn nearly as much as with Gigi. Gigi,... More

My husband booked an 8 hour private tour of Versailles with Private Tours Paris. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. We were picked up at our hotel and had a terrific day. Didn't have to stand in line. We visited the Palace, Trianon, and the Queen's Hamlet. It was very easy to book online.

We had a wonderful experience with Catherine when she toured us through Versailles and Giverny. With my friend's reduced mobility, there is no way we would have tackled this on our own. We would have been worn out by the time we got off the train. But we got to see both sites in one day. Catherine was a wonderful... More

They were prompt; even early; well spoken in English, new a lot about the area and where we were going. The meal halfway was great and the atmosphere was relaxing. Can't find anything bad to say other than it strains the pocketbook a little, but all the tours do.

On the day of our arrival the traffic was horrible due to an accident. It took almost a full hour extra to arrive in the center of Paris. Of course I thought this would take time from our tour, but I was pleasantly surprised when our wonderful guide assured me that we would see everything we wished. The tours were... More

We booked two months in advance working with Lee and Angelo via email. They were both very responsive and offered up suggestions in a timely manner prior to our arrival. We decided to do the half day Versailles and the full day Normany DDay Tour the next day. On our first day we were looking for the advertised Mercedes van... More

Walter, we are very sorry if you have not been fully satisfied with our services. Our fleet of vehicles is 100% composed of very comfortable Mercedes Viano. As we want to keep our minivans in good and safe conditions, it may happen but rarely, that for maintenance reasons we have to use replacement cars. In your case, it was a... More
