Trip is NOT what is described
, Jan 2022
We splurged on this ticket because we wanted a more intimate experience. We were promised transportation in a minivan, less than 15 people in the group, vip access with an English speaking guide. They showed up with a huge charter bus with around 30 + people and a guide (super nice) but with an accent so think we couldn’t understand. We stood out front of Versailles for about 20 minutes watching other groups cut in front of us while our guide dealt with another upset person on the tour (who I believe was told would have a Spanish guide and there was no Spanish guide for her). By the end of the tour, most of our group had wandered off from the guide. I would assume because they couldn’t understand her English either. At this point, we didn’t even have an audio guide so we paid (after refund) $115 each to wander around Versailles unguided. The tickets to enter were around $18 Euros and we could have got a taxi for Much cheaper. Maybe this excursion would have been ok (if you have the patience to decipher English with a super thick accent) AND we’re expecting an inexpensive tour on a charter bus, if that’s what you wanted. This was NOT what we paid for.

As a former tour operator, this trip is simply not worth it. Trust me. They do not deliver on what they promise. By that I mean, "Maximum of 15" is in reality however many people book it for that day. In my case, this was about 40 or so people, a far cry from a maximum of 15. "Private transportation in a minivan" is in reality putting all of the people who were gullible enough to sign up into a mega-bus. During a global pandemic, this is not only bad business but also unsafe for those with pre-existing conditions. Completely unacceptable in my opinion. Additionally, no hand sanitizer on the bus, no sanitization of the shared audio systems before or after use, and no enforcement of the mask policy. Truly embarrassing given the times. I would strongly encourage anyone interested in visiting Versailles from Paris to NOT USE PARIS CITY VISION. They do not deliver on what they advertise, and the guides are inefficient with time, not very informative, limited English, and generally disinterested. I requested a refund and they tried to tell me they initially told me they hadn't done anything wrong. To me, this shows that my experience was business as usual. Viator was helpful, but Paris City Vision is, in my opinion, a completely worthless organization.

Guides were not prepared...
, Oct 2021
Guides were not prepared and wasted valuable time. Should have been there at 9, didn't enter until 10. Paid for small group but was 28 people in size and very chaotic. Guide didn't know much and didn't give clear directions.

Poor value

Crowded bus. It was a group of 26 or more, not 15 or less. Late with lots of waiting. The guide seemed bored.

Good small tour

Really loved being able to get a bus to Versailles and have a small intimate tour. Would recommend. Would probably get the longer tour next time
Versailles for the uninitiated
, Aug 2021
Francois was eager and full of information to help us see the way the aristocracy lived as only our history books have barely touched.
Take a cab and do it yourself.
, Aug 2021
It's not a semi private tour they load of a large buss with numerous different tour groups to take you there..... The gardens was the best part and your guide doesn't come with so ask for the best way to get everywhere because your on your own for half the tour. Complete overpaid tour.... You can take a cab there and back for 100 and admission is 30 dollars a person... So compare that with the costs.
