Have you ever had an experience so completely perfect, you were reluctant to review it because of its dreamlike perfection? That is how I feel about the Hidden Gems Tour of Versailles with Marc-Antoine. As I celebrate one year passing since my fiancé and I went on our first trip to Paris, this tour still stands out as being one of the most worthwhile things we did. I can’t image seeing Versailles any other way! The Mercedes van picked us up and dropped us back off right at our hotel in St Germain-des-pres and our guide, Marc-Antoine, told us all about the places we were passing on our way...we did not have to wait in the (unimaginably long) line (Amy of the lines) once we reached the golden gates of the Sun King’s palace; we moved seamlessly from room to room with Marc-Antoine guiding us through the throngs of people...I didn’t even feel claustrophobic, I was too fascinated by all the stories he was telling us! We were able to ask questions (he knew the answer to every one!) and we got details about the palace, the gardens...the paintings..everything..in a way that could only be possible being one-on-one with a local guide. My biggest regret was only doing the half-day tour—and my greatest hope is that someday we will be able to go back and have Marc-Antoine and Hidden Gems take us more extensively through the grounds and gardens! Merci beaucoup, nous espérons vous voir bientôt!

Our Make a Wish trip to Paris was made complete with a tour of Versailles and Monet’s Home and Garden. Sebastian and Anne Marie made the day so warm and inviting for my husband and I, yet interesting and intriguing for my teens and preteens! We wouldn’t change a thing about the day, and only dream of doing another tour with them either in Paris or elsewhere! Thank you!!

Enjoyed a wonderful tour to Versailles. Driver was on time and our guide, Anna Maria, could not have been sweeter. What a treat to tour Versailles with someone as knowledgeable as Anna Maria and her passion for its history was infectious. It was an absolute delight to tour such an amazing place with someone who truly loves what they are doing. A lovely day we will never forget. Highly, highly recommend.

Guide, Anna Maria, showed up at our hotel with a driver, at the appointed time.. She greeted us, made sure we were comfortable and charmingly gave a running commentary on where we were, on our way to Versailles. Once there, we were escorted in, no waiting in line. She arranged for a wheelchair for one member of our party and spent the next few hours enthralling us with history. She was extremely knowledgeable and obviously loved her job. She took photos of us and was like a member of the family. We were returned to our hotel in the same manner. Could not have been more delighted.

The driver and guide were punctual, polite and knowledgeable. I suggest that the company offer more options. For instance, in winter it is useless visiting the gardens and some of the rooms are closed off so there is time even in the half day tour to see some of the private rooms, like the opera house. But these need special appointments, which the company appears not to offer.

Response from 777xavierf, Gérant at Paris To Versailles Private Tours
Responded Mar 12, 2020
Good morning Hannes, Thank you for your feedback. The private tour you are talking about is available online. It is called "The Hidden Doors". This tour requires a special autorisation form the administration of the palace. That's why this tour is expensive and needs to be booked in advance (as most of our private tours). During winter, we agree that's obviously less interesting to visit the gardens but to our mind the view on the grand perspective as well as a general overview of the gardens is still amazing. We would be glad to talk to you by email to get more details about your visit. Please don't hesitate to send us a short email. We would be really grateful to exchange more about your experience directly by email than via the TA platform. Best, Xavier
