We booked a full day tour of Versailles and would recommend Private Tours. Claudia our guide was punctual and the transport was really comfortable. The queues at Versaille were huge so it was great that with Claudia we were able to go straight to the front. At the end of the day we had some spare time so Claudia offered to drop us elsewhere in Paris - which was thoughtful. I only hold back on giving 5 stars for 2 reasons....the first was that we have used similar private tours in other cities. The ones that I have given 5 stars to provided that something extra.....eg in Bangkok our guide provided water and cold towels and when we were chatting about local food she arranged for is to stop and sample some street food. Little extras at no extra charge. So no complaints here just don't want to de-value my previous ratings. The second thing is that my partner is pretty knowledgable on french history and the history of European art.....and while I found the commentary great he found it lacking and also at times inaccurate.

Private Tours Paris set up a wonderful day for us. Being short on days in Paris, we were able to visit both Versailles and Giverny in one day...and saw a lot! Our guide/driver Marlena, aka Magdelina was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to help us enjoy the day. I recommend this company highly.

we had a wonderful time with Marlene, our guide , who took us on a tour of Giverny and Versaille. She was knowledgeable about both venues, and she also gave us a wonderful overview of the lovely small villages that we passed through on the way there. It was an unforgettable day . And we will certainly use Private Tours Paris again

Just returned from Paris, we had Private Tours of Paris take us to Giverny and Versailles. Our guide Marlene was great, she made both tours fun and interesting. We were picked up at our apartment and as we drove out of Paris each day, she pointed out all the landmarks, it was almost like a hop on, hop off experience. A very nice little bonus for us. We had five in our group and the vans were top quality. I want to thank them again for this great service. I think you get a lot more out of a tour when it is done this way instead of in a large bus group. I highly recommend Private Tours of Paris.

I cannot give enough superlatives to the service we received on our two day trip from Paris. We were picked up at our apartment in Paris by Pierre. We visited the Bayeux tapestry and the spent the rest of the day at Normandy Beach. Pierre was incredible in his knowledge of the history of the the events that took place there. It was far above superficial and really added to the enjoyment of our visit. The following day was likewise terrific as we visited the magical Mont St Michel. He even took us to see it at night to enjoy it at a unique time.
Bravo to Pierre and Private Tours.
This is an expensive tour and a splurge for us but we felt worth it. There was just the two of us. Doing this with a group of 4-8 would make this must more affordable.
