My daughters and I had a fantastic time! Fred, our driver and guide, was very knowledgeable. He started his history of Paris from the moment he picked us up. We learned so much and I’m eager to learn more. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Our private tour guide of Versailles was a very knowledgeable man named Frederick, aka Fred. You will have hit the jackpot should he be your guide. The bonus for us was all the Paris history and landmarks he pointed out as we headed to Versailles. You could feel his passion for not just Paris but for all of France!

Wonderful experience, highly recommend

Wonderful tour. Our guide arrived early was totally prepared.. The second we left we started getting briefed on the days activities and immersed in french history. We arrived in Versailles early she purchased tickets for us while we leisurely took photos of the front gate. We noticed the extremely long line that we would have encountered had we not booked the skip the line Tour! Once in Versailles our guide skillfully took us through the castle so we were never in overcrowded rooms. Shea had tips on the places to take pictures and was very knowledgeable. She finished the inside of the castle just in time for us to see the fountains and gardens. We had arranged for her to drop us back at our hotel but she was kind enough to accomidate our itinerary and drop us at galleries Lafayette. This allowed us to get a short tour on the way of some of Paris famous sites. She was a skillful and knowledgeable driver. The car was large and spacious with great air conditioning. Every attention to detail was taken care off. I highly recommend Zara and Parismatic tours

Great Tour with Knowledgeable Guide

We visited Paris over the holidays in December 2019-2020. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Versailles, they decided not to open the palace because of the strike. Despite the fact that we were unable to get into the Palace, our tour guide, Fred, provided a wonderful tour, showing us the grounds, gardens and wonderful lunch at a small restaurant in Versailles. We learned a great deal about the Palace, its history and the rooms. He was a wonderful guide and helped us make the best out of a difficult situation.

Outstanding Experience
MarkR1038

Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about Versailles and was able to navigate our way through the crowds. He was able to make it feel like a very intimate and informative experience in spite of the hoards of people elbowing their way through the palace. The experience was memorable for all of the right reasons. It was a bonus that he also knew shortcuts through Paris traffic in the midst of a debilitating transit strike. Book this trip!

Loved this personalized experience!

Our family -- two adults, plus 12- and 10-year-old sons -- got so much out of this tour. We felt like Fred taught us a French history class in addition to everything about Versailles, in the best possible way; it put Versailles into a larger context, and he did so in a way that even the children got something out of it. He was skilled at avoiding some of the larger crowds within Versailles whenever possible as well. We also appreciated being picked up and dropped off again right at our hotel, along with getting to skip the entry line that was incredibly long even in late November. I'd recommend this tour to anyone, including families, who want to see Versailles and learn an incredible amount about it without being just another visitor in one of the enormous groups.
