We would highly recommend this tour with Cristina and Etienne! They have a lot of historical knowledge of the palace and the city of Versailles. It was a very personalized and interactive experience. We found the tour length just right.

Loved the experience! I got to enter the palace grounds skipping the lines with them. They had great knowledge of the stories that went around in each room. The Gardens were lovely.

With Etienne there was really no waiting in line to enter Versailles, there is a special entrance for guided tours. Our group was very small, just myself and my wife, so we really got the VIP service because Etienne and his partner/girlfriend Cristina scheduled the event during that day of February just for us, upon our request. So if you don't see them having something scheduled for the day you really want, you should ask them, they may still be available. Once inside the palace it's really easy to get lost, the place is quite large. It really helps to have someone that knows the place really well explaining some things to you that you might miss otherwise. Etienne and Cristina will schedule the visit according to your request, based on how much information you want to get during this time. We are the kind of people that like mostly to read the headlines, since we would forget the details anyway, so that's what we received in a non intrusive method. We still got to see the place on our own pace, while getting the information we wanted without having to wear and listen to those annoying headsets that are also available if you want to go the non-guided/long wait line version. Overall, it was a great tour and I would really recommend their service to anyone of our friends, including you, because if you managed to read so far into this long review you're like my friend already, lol. One more note: when you meet with Etienne or Cristina don't forget to ask about their friend Jordi, who's a very talented young photographer you can also hire.
