Only suggestion is adding headsets so we can all hear the tour guide and do not have to crowd in right on top of him when crowded. this is my second tour here with cityrama and both times we had to be huddled together to hear him over the crowd. Our guide did a wonderful job and he answered all questions !

It is a must do tour in Paris... the guide we had was Clair and she was so informative and made the tour even more fascinating. ... It is well worth the money and time... not all places allow you take photos, but in here you can. more

The tour was fabulous and our guide was knowledgeable and very kind. The hotel pickup and drop off was convenient after a long day... of sightseeing. It was a comfortable air conditioned van. The magnificence of Versailles was enhanced by the guided tour. I would highly recommend it. more

This was a small group tour and we had a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Had enough time in the Palace bu...t would have liked more time to explore the gardens and see the fountains. Would consider a full day tour if you want to fully enjoy both Palace and gardens.

Perhaps the tour operator should make the meeting time at the finish 5 minutes before the departure time as like all groups someon...e is always late and carefree about being late - as was the case on our tour. A couple were 8 minutes overdue. more

Fiona

We were extremely satisfied. Pick-up at the hotel was a little late, but our guide (***) phoned us well ahead to inform us of the ...delay. She proved to be a very pleasant, helpful and well-informed guide (and an excellent driver). n more

Our tour guide was great. Very knowledgeable ! And did his best to keep

Sioux

The lady-guide was excellent, very knowledgeable.She was also very nice and helpful.
Great tour.

Jolanta

This is a no fuss way to go to Versailles- no more worrying about transportation to and from the place; no long lines to waste pre...cious time on; a good english-speaking guide present, who imparts just the right amount of information, without overloading your brain. More time, to roam around the gardens and to queue up at the limited available toilets, would be a nice addition also. more

Feliciano Isaac

Great guide, described the sites as well as a good tour.

Rita

A great way to get out of the city and see a little countryside and another town. Versailles is a lovely town. Great to see the fa...med Hall of Mirrors. more

Gary

Excellent trip with very knowledgeable and pleasant guide.

Joan

The tour itself was good - Versailles Apartments was crouded. Earlier maybe a better choice.

ANITA

Our main complaint was that it was way to crowded. Our guide did her best to keep us together and provide her very good knowledge... of this facility, but with so many others there, this feat was quite difficult.

It is an amazing palace and we were glad we saw it.

Lynne

We were pleased to be picked up at our hotel and cabbed to the City Discovery Office-- we only wish all of the passengers on our e...xcursion had the same arrangements, as we spent the first hour of our trip picking up others who didn't seem ready when the van pulled up. By the time we reached Versailles, we had about 90 minutes to view the gardens and take the tour. We got to skip the general public line, but still waited in the que as other groups entered and our Guide got organized. The palace itself is absolutely amazing, and our Guide was pretty knowledgeable. Our Driver made it sound like he could only drop us off at our hotel "if he had time", which thankfully he did. All in all, we liked the trip-- we just wish we could have had more time at Versailles. more

THADDEUS

Upon arriving at the Cityrama office at the scheduled time of 1.45pm we were told there was some sore of mix up and the computer h...ad us booked on the morning session. The afternoon didn't get much berrter from then on. After waiting up unitl the last second before being told there was space available then rushing to catch the bus, we were not getting that warm feeling.
The bus trip was fine plus informative as was the tour through the Versailles Area however it was so busy and packed it was difficult to appreciate what was on offer.

I would suggest doing some research to find out time that are less busy, travel there by your own means which will allow sufficient time to see the gereater area (6 hours should be fine).
Tour giudes were very freindly and professional.
