Great experience at Versailles. We avoided lines, and the crowded spots. We learned a lot, especially the most remarkable areas of Versailles.

Jillian PerryUnited States
We had a fantastic tour! We were picked up right on time & driven to Versailles in a new Mercedes Sprinter van and with Romain's planning our wait time was super-limited. Since our time for the day was short - Romain did a great job giving us a high-level, concise & super-interesting tour of all the important parts of the palace. He was engaging & his English was phenomenal. We wouldn't do Versailles without his expertise. Thank you!!
Maria LasdayUnited States
Romain was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He was punctual and well informed of Versailles. We very much enjoyed our tour.

Romain and his tour easily met expectations. We were two couples, one from USA and one from Poland (with good English language skills) with some knowledge of Versailles and French history. He had no trouble communicating with us, and was able to tie in with American and Polish history. My wife has mobility issues and uses a walker. Romain was right on top of that, finding ways to bypass stairs where possible, pacing the tour to her speed, and making sure she did not not get lost in the crowd. Thanks.

Romain arrived on time and spoke excellent English. We felt he gave an excellent tour and gave us insights into how the French kings controlled the aristocracy and explained how this was shown in the art of Versailles. Going by private tour got us passed the long lines and allowed us to move along at a comfortable pace. We will definitely use ToursByLocals on future trips.

Again, Romain had a wealth of information, was able to avoid the very long entrance lines, and was an excellent guide.

Joan AdamsUnited States
This service is wonderful. Roman showed us the gardens and the palace in a such a way that brought history to life. He explained all of the political and social aspects of the times and the hidden messages in many of the features. It was fascinating. Roman is a wonderful guide. We were very happy with this tour

Prompt, informative, and pleasant, Romain provided an excellent tour of Versailles for our family. He made it interesting and understandable for our children, as well as the adults. Very fluent and understandable in English. We highly recommend tours with Romain. Merci beaucoup, Romain!
Maria HallomUnited States
After Louvre, we were glad Romain also took us to Versailles. If not for him and our wheel-chaired companion, we would have spent more than 2 hours in line. Even then, we spent the first hour waiting for palace to re-open after security closure. Romain whizzed us past the lines and we learned a lot about the history, practices and the kings of France. Despite our late entry and Romain's scheduled next tour, he managed to take us to the gardens and made up for lost time. Thank you Romain!
Joanna S.United Kingdom
5 star guide, definitely recommend. It was our first time taking a private tour and we were a little unsure what to expect, but Romain quickly put us at ease. Our guided visit to Versailles with him was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Romain is highly knowledgeable, personable, humorous and courteous. Excellent English and driving too.
Lori C.Duluth, GA, United States
Romain was able to pick up the 6 of us at our apartment, drive us to Versailles, tour us around with pretty good English, and agreed to drop us off at Montmartre afterwards...giving us a great recommendation for lunch there. Romain is very passionate about the history and relics of Paris. He also answered many, many questions on the drive to and from Versailles.

Romain was a wonderful tour guide for our trip to Versailles. He picked us up in his van at our ship in a suburb of Paris and took us on the tour and back to the ship. The day we had picked for the tour there was a strike so we weren't sure we would actually be able to get in, but it all worked out and Romain navigated us through lines and then into Versailles itself. He is very knowlegeable about French history and gave us information that helped us really appreciate what we were seeing.
Carrie HorstUnited States
Romain is an excellent guide to Versailles. He is knowledgeable and pleasant. I definitely recommend heading out on the tour in the morning before the larger crowds appear.
Karrie HoeftUnited States
Romain was awesome! He was nice, knowledgeable and pleasant. He was able to adjust the tour to keep my teenagers attention spans as well help my elderly mother-in-law with her pace. I was happy with everything. Next time we are in Paris we definitely will contact Romain.
Susan ProcopeUnited States
Romain was wonderful!! We enjoyed our tour to Versailles with him. His English was excellent. Romain was very knowledgable about the palace and the history surrounding it. Romain was prompt with pick up at our hotel. We will definitely seek out Romain again when we return to France and have additional tours to take!
Daniel ButterlyUnited States
Romain took us from Paris to Versailles for a guided tour and was a fantastic tour guide. He was well-versed in the history and was happy to respond to questions we had on the gardens, palace, etc. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a first-class tour of Versailles.
Ellyn MeffordBurnet, TX, United States
Romain did a terrific job of making Versailles come alive for us. We had easy access (no lines) on a very busy day at Versailles and he kept us moving through the crowds to see the really important rooms, art and artifacts. Nice vehicle with a careful driver. Much appreciation Romain. Pete, Lyn and Kate
Kathryn ZdanUnited States
We did a fabulous half-day tour to Versailles with Romain. He knowledge was encyclopedic, and he kept us all wrapt with stories about the rooms, the art, the grounds, the royal family, the history, and traditions. Our only disappointment is that the tour came to an end that that we couldn't just spend our entire trip with him. I couldn't recommend him any more highly.
Kim BarrettNew Zealand
Romain was a fantastic host and guide. Very knowledgeable on all the areas we looked at. A real gentleman. The whole family enjoyed the tour and made our time in Paris all the richer for it.
Michelle BossUnited States
Fantastic tour! Romain is passionate about his subject and extremely knowledgable. We would definitely take a tour from him again.
James LudlamUnited States
The tour of the Louvre with Romain was fabulous. He arrived a few minutes early, always nice. Our family group was 6 people, three generations ranging in age from 9 to 73. He catered to all of us. His English is very good, although he is modest about it. A great choice.
Laure RossUnited States
Unfortunately, Versailles was closed due to a transport worker strike, so after offering a variety of other options, we chose to go on a walking tour around Louvre and to the Musee Carnavalet in the Marais district. Romain is extremely knowledgeable about the city, the history and especially the art and architectural history of the city. He had to contend with a 12 year old, 2 adults and a change of plans on the fly and everyone was quite happy and interested in the tour.
