Versailles and Louvre Tour

This tour was great. -1 star for the mediocre lunch. The Paris Trip office where you meet is very close to the Eiffel Tower. It ended up being a 3 minute walk from our hotel. Very easy to find. Our tour guide was also our driver, in a van that seated 9 total. We started with Versailles, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and escorted us around with no problems. The one-ear listening devices were quite helpful. We spent probably about 1.5-2hrs total at Versailles. 1hr inside, and about 30 min after for the gardens. This amount of time was perfect for me. I'm sure you could spend all day that, but that didn't interest me. The abbreviated introduction was just my speed. We headed back to the city where 4 of us went on to have lunch and 4 concluded their tour and were dropped off by the guide while we ate. Lunch was on one of the boats docked on the river by the Eiffel Tower. A nice venue, but they were confused about what we could order, since the meal was included with our tour. At first the menu looked promising, but then we were downgraded to either soup and chicken, or chicken and dessert. Not much to choose from. Would be very easy to expand the choices a bit since this is a full service restaurant. After lunch, four of us rejoined the guide and headed to the Louvre. We spent about 2hrs +/- with the guide in the Louvre catching the highlights, including the Mona Lisa. While you would need 3 months to see everything, 2hrs was perfect for me. Our guide left us at the Louvre where you could re-enter the museum or finish off the day however you wish. Our tour started at about 8:30am and concluded around 3:30pm-ish. I felt like we did a lot and saw two major sites without running ourselves ragged. A most enjoyable day that went very smoothly. The very small tour had a nice private guide feel. Would definitely recommend.

Stephanie Hole was an excellent guide for the Louvre. She was worldly and very knowledgeable about art and history, and had a fabulous sense of humor, which made the tour memorable, especially for my 10-year old! Thank you Stephanie!

Our tour guide was Isabella. She was an excellent tour guide and driver. She was so informative and knowledgeable. She always showed concern for everyone’s well being. The tour helped us not to wait on extremely long lines. The lunch was enjoyable. The tour was worth doing.

The tour was very good and being able to skip the line was fantastic as the line can be very long to get into the attractions. The lunch was in a nice location on the river by the Eiffel Tower however the food was bland and you only got one choice: chicken (which was dry) and veggies or fries.
