One of the best private tours we have had. Bertrand was very personable and a fountain of knowledge. His enthusiasm and descriptions brought the history of Versailles to life. Worth every penny.

Wonderful visit to Versailles!! This was our first experience with a private guide. Bertrand is very knowledgeable and did everything possible to make our visit enjoyable. We truly enjoyed having our guided tour in French. Even though there were many tourists, Bertrand managed to keep a good pace and we were able to capture all the essentials of Versailles. We would certainly consider using the services of Bertrand again should we be in Paris or surrounding area. Merci beaucoup Bertrand! Johanne

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Johanne, et merci encore pour cette superbe journée à Versailles!

Bertrand was extremely flexible and adapted the tour to our group's specific qualifications/needs. He was also very knowledgeable and provided lots of information both while driving to Versailles and during our visit. We were a multi-generational group (one 86 year old, four people in their 50's and 60's and two young adults). Bertrand was able to engage all of us at once. I would highly recommend Bertrand as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Kathryn, c'était un plaisir de passer cette matinée avec vous tous à Versailles!

Absolutely fantastic tours! My wife and I took 3 tours with Bertrand. Versailles just for you, The Louvre just for you, and Paris just for you. Bertrand is professional, kind, witty, and just pleasure to spend the day with. He has great knowledge of the history of Paris, the Louvre, and Versailles. He tailors the tours to what you want to see and says what you should see if you don't know. The pace of the tours is relaxed allowing you to soak it all in. We highly recommend touring with Bertrand.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Casey, you and Suzie are a charm to be with. I am really glad you enjoyed Paris and I look forward to exploring more of my city with you!

This one is not to be missed! Worth every euro to have pickup/ transport and the most engaging guy to tell you all about Versailles. His suggestion to change to afternoon so we could appreciate the fountain show was brilliant! He warmly included our two teens in all interactions. ( It was the talk at dinner later that evening). It is such a luxury to have a local to answer questions and enlighten you to the history of the palace and beyond. Can't say enough great things about our time with Bertrand!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Kim, and thanks a lot for your kind words. Versailles is a wonderful place and I am super happy to read all of you enjoyed it so much. A bientôt,

Bertrand was a fabulous guide in many ways. He was very service-minded, friendly, full of knowledge that he managed to present in an interesting, entertaining way, and he gave us useful information/ tip on other subjects as well. He made the trip to Versailles ten times more interesting than just walking alone not knowing too much about the historical place. Bertrand is a guide we certainly would use again next time in Paris. Thank you Bertrand for giving us such a nice experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Linn, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have the three of you on my tour of Versailles. I love this place so much it was great to share it with you. Till soon my friend! Bertrand

Bertrand's tour of Versailles & the Gardens was superb! He is very knowledgeable & provided so much extra information that we would not have known had we toured on our own. He personalized the tour based on our questions & interests. We highly recommend him! Merci, Bertrand, for making our last day in Paris so memorable!

Bertrand was the most knowledgeable guide we have had! On our drive to Versailles, we bombarded him with questions. He was delightful, had a great sense of humor and is seriously smart. He took us around the grounds first, which turned out to be the better choice of agendas. The grounds were fascinating. We meandered and Bertrand kept us enthralled with facts and stories. We headed into the palace, we found it to be unbearably crowded. He got us thru the crowds as best he could. Great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Timothy, Thank you very much for your fantastic review. It was a pleasure to take the two of you to Versailles and share my love and passion for it. I hope to see you soon.

Our tour to Versailles could not have been any better. I cannot imagine seeing any other way, than by private car and with Bertrand as a guide. He knows everything about the buildings, the artwork, the furniture, the gardens, etc. Oh, and the fountains..with the music. He really makes you appreciate it all, is friendly, and knowledgeable.. Our group was 4 adults and 2 teens (15 and 17 year old). They loved him and really enjoyed it. This was the perfect amount of time in my opinion to spend on a visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rebeca, It was a pleasure to share my passion for Versailles with you and your family. See you soon! Bertrand

What a wonderful tour! We had blessing s from the heavens! Bertrand was a wealth of interesting information delivered with charm and humor. I can't say enough about the experience. From the moment he met us at our door to the end of the tour he was passionate about ensuring that we were informed about not only Versailles , but Paris. I recommend him highly to anyone interested in learning about France. One thing is sure, we will contact him again for another tour when we are in France.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Jillette, What a wonderful day we have had. Versailles was just stunning under the blue skies and the lights were fantastic. I look forward to your next visit, we have many more wonders to discover. A bientôt!

We didn't have much time for this tour but what Bertrand did was select the highlights which we appreciated. What he gave us was a short and interesting overview of the various civilizations covered by the exhibits in the Lourve. And yet in detail to catch your attention and appreciate the exhibits even more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup!

We had a wonderful visit to Versailles with Bertrand! His historical knowledge, funny stories and experience avoiding the crowds really made this must-see attraction shine brighter. On the way back to Paris, he told us about his home town and showed us his favorite restaurant that served their typical food. Delicious! To the family budget keeper; there are lots of Versailles tours, groups big and small, many less money. Do your family a favor and go with Bertrand, the difference is worth it!
