    Our tour guide Clair, was wonderful. She was very kind, friendly and had vast amount of knowledge of both Claude Monet and Versailles. Our destinations were spectacular. The reason I didn’t give this five stars is that our bus dropped us off at Versailles and left then when we were finished the bus had broken down and it took us well over two hours to return to Paris. I felt management could have handled this much better

    Francesco was an excellent tour guide. He was such a great storyteller that he even convinced my boyfriend to start liking history tours. Would 100% recommend this tour guide company and this tour. They even accommodated us when we were 20 minutes late. Thank you to Francesco and this group.

    Versailles was awesome but our guide not so much so.
    We met at 845am and left promptly but then it all deteriorated. On arrival at Versailles we were to meet some more people, some of whom didnt turn up and the others were in the wrong place, so we were left hanging about. Then we had to wait for headsets, then we had to wait again while the guide sorted the tickets. Therefore it took 90 mins from departure to getting inside Versailles.
    Our guide (Natalie) was OK but quite difficult to hear and she wasn’t very engaging. Someone else had a guidebook with them and said that was more useful.
    The palace and grounds are stunning and a “must do”. The tour itself was OK but would be better without all the faffing about.

    Excellent Tour with Charlotte!! The kids and I learned so much and thuroughly enjoyed this private tour! Charlotte's depth of knowledge and passion for the beauty and history of this amazing place shone in every room and garden we got to see! She tailored the experience to our family, shared captivating stories of kings and queens, helped the kids and I discover ties to Roman symbolism, history of the time, and really made the experience wonderful!

    The tour to Giverny (Monet’s gardens) and Versailles (palace) was great! Seeing Monet’s gardens was a dream come true; I’m really happy we could spend more time on our own there. Also, our tour guide, Isabel, was wonderful. She is so knowledgeable on the places we visited, and we also learned a lot during the driving portions of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour!

    MarieAntonette farm was my favorite and the hall of mirrors.
    Lunch was not worth the value. One small glass of wine was all that was included and small portion of lunch. We had only 1 hr 15 minutes to eat and setvicd was slow. We waited for our coffee and they finally brought as we were ready to leave as our tour guy was waiting for us.

    Paris Trip is the best operator in town. Everything was outstanding, the punctuality, the vehicle, the driver and Marcela, the guide was excellent. I truthfully recomend it.

    An excellent excursion. Our guide “Z” was amusing and very informative. Also extremely helpful! My wife left her expensive cane in a public washroom at the departure point. The automatic doors locked and we had to leave without it. While we were on the tour Z arranged for his coworker Olga to get the cane extracted and delivered to our hotel. Many thanks!

    Just returned to my hotel from taking this tour. Our guide was Rachel. The meet up at the bike shop was easy to do. Everyone there is either American or speaks native English. A lot of American ex-pats hang out there. There were 12 of us in the tour. Rachel took us to the near by train station and we were off to Versailles. It was a short 30 min train ride. When we arrive Rachel showed us some of her favorite places in town. We did a quick stop at a coffee shop for a snack and bathroom break and we went to get the bikes. We picked up Baguettes at the boulangerie next the the bike storage and went to a market for meat,cheeses,and fruit for our picnic lunch. Rachel gave us a lot of information about the 4 kings who lived at the palace and made the learning fun by assigning us all a “part.”.The bike ride was a a very easy pace. Going into the palace after the bike tour of the grounds is on-your-own with the ticket provided by the tour group. audio guides are available as you go in and explains what you are seeing. I would recommend that you just buy premade baguette sandwiches at the boulangerie. Without utensils it is hard to make your own sandwich! Also bring napkins and beverages with you or buy in town. Baskets are in most of the bikes for transporting you lunch until time to stop and eat... right next to the canal. I would highly recommend this tour and particularly Rachel as a tour guide

    Our guide Fabrice turned our visit to Versailles into an outstanding experience. Pickup was very smooth and the drive very comfortable. He was extremely knowledgeable and already shared many helpful and interesting insights with us during the drive. While at Versailles Fabrice had us skip the lines and then managed to always find a spot between the crowds for us to see everything and hear his commentary. I learned so much about French history from him. While it was a little bit more expensive than other tours, this tour was well worth it and we highly recommend it.
