Our guide, Julie, was amazing. She was knowledgeable, engaging and had such a passion for art and history - it was infectious. We could have stayed the whole day. I would recommend Get Your Guide and if you could have Julie as your guide, I believe you would have an amazing experience.

Steph was my guide. Full of humour and helpful.Thank you Steph!!! Than I spent the afternoon in the gardens. I walked a lot. I took the train and visited the Great Trianon. Come back walking got lost and found myself. I finished with a lunch in the La Floutille, near the Great canal. I will remember this day always.

Amazing inside and out, our tour guide was great and very insightful giving us unusual and very informative insights into the palace. You can pay an extra €12 to access the gardens but was definitely worth it, they were amazing. In the summer you can also pay €30 to visit the gardens on a Saturday evening where it’s all lit up and you can watch a firework display. My friend booked this and it really made our holiday the gardens at night were a whole other experience to the day and really made our holiday. Would recommend.
