Our tour was excellent and I would like to thank Gustav for a wonderful experience. He arrived on time and explained what we would see and some of the history in comfort at our hotel before we left. Initially we walked around the gardens where he explained how they were used by the court and the construction of the tiers etc. We then went into the palace and his knowledge came to the fore as he described what we could see and explain the lives of Louis 14th etc. It was 100 times better than a headset.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words and gracious support. This means a lot to me. Very much appreciated.
Gustavo was very informative and professional. Structured the historical background well to give a good understand of the historical context of Versailles. Friendly and obliging and we enjoyed the tour.

Gustavo was a great guide we had a perfect time at Versailles. He was very good at describing the French history the history of the kings and Versailles. We really enjoyed the day.
Gustavo was a fantastic guide, with a high level of insight into everything related to Versailles. Kudos to him for getting the teenagers to sit through a brief but important history lesson before getting into the tour! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Gustavo and highly recommend him as a guide.

Gustavo is both knowledgeable as well as good at explaining the context and history of events in a way that makes the Bourbons and Versailles come alive. He is also good at customizing the tour to meet the needs of his group.

Gustavo met us at the airport and did a whirlwind tour of Versailles and the Louvre. His knowledge and professionalism were awesome. Even though we were tired from our flight over from the States, he kept us interested and moving. If you love art and history, Gustavo is the guide for you.

Samuel EvansUnited States
Gustavo did a great job with this tour. He had to cram a tremendous amount of info into 4 hrs. He was prompt picking meeting us at our hotel and drove us to Versailles. There were four of us. The tour was fast paced which is what we wanted. For a slower pace, a longer tour is needed for Versailles. Gustavo has a good command of English and knew the details of life at Versailles very well.
Eden FederUnited States
Gustavo was timely and professional. He was very knowledgeable about history and helped set the context for what we saw so that we would be able to appreciate their significance. Our trip to Versailles was far richer because we went with him. Skipping the lines was also wonderful.

We booked a day tour of Versailles which ended up including parts of Paris. Gustavo made sure we got our money's worth. He is very knowledgeable, and has a great sense of Paris itself as in the culture both current and past. I especially enjoyed the little side trip around Marsais (the Swamp). If you want to do more than just see sights, and want to get a sense of what makes Paris tick culturally and socially, you would enjoy Gustavo!

Gustavo, our guide, was very knowledgeable about everything Versailles, politics, art, architecture, horticulture. He was able to answer every single question we had without hesitation and with loads of details. I wish we had planned our time with him sooner in our trip because of his vast knowledge.

We had only a few hours to visit Versailles and so decided on a private tour by Gustavo. He picked us up in his private car and as we drove to the palace he gave us information about it, Paris and France in general. Once there, we were led to the front of the line (a very, very long line) and ushered in where we were told stories and history of each room we entered. We were given a tour of the gardens and then left to wander on our own and watch the fountain show. It was a wonderful day, thanks to him.
Heidi LingUnited States
We really enjoyed this tour! I had been to Versailles before, years ago, but it was a new experience with my teenage daughter. Gustavo shared a lot of information I had not heard before, but the lesser known stories were the best, especially about castle hygiene. The information of life at Versailles made it seem more real, not just a museum.
James L.Naples, FL, United States
Gustavo was AWESOME! Crazy knowledgeable. Loves history & art. Made our half-day trip to Versailles an amazing experience. He takes care of everything: transportation (in his beautiful car with music from Versailles), tickets, skipping lines, etc. On the way he gives you an informative history lesson and when there you get all the little details the public might otherwise miss. Well worth every penny, cannot recommend this gentleman enough. Thanks Gustavo for making our day with you unforgettable!
Laura RubinUnited States
Paris can be overwhelming. It was really nice to have Gustavo pick us up at our hotel, drive us to Versailles. He gave us some background information on the drive there and we fired questions at him which he was able to answer. Inside of Versailles he gave us very detailed information about each room which we would never have picked up on our own, that is why we paid for a private tour. We definitely got what we wanted, got our money's worth.

William GarrisonRoyal Oaks, CALIFORNIA, United States
Gustavo is an excellent guide! In addition, he's quite knowledgeable in history and art history. Our tour of Versailles was well worth the cost. Not only did we comfortably cover the sites, which we had seen twice before, but we saw a great deal more both because he knew how to get around, including places that a self-guided tour may well miss (as we had before), but he could also tell us the history and significance of what we were looking at. Thank you, Gustavo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you William!!!
Lynne NiechniedowiczUnited States
A little late but called to let us know which we appreciated , Very courteous and knowledgeable. I would recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Girls I'll be glad to see you again here in Paris
Jeffrey FranoUnited States
Very knowledgeable. Learned so much more than we ever would have by ourselves. Always kept my disability in mind and made special accommodations when necessary. Even dropped us off at a different point so I could see another site that I don't think I would have seen without Gustavo dropping me at the front door and then telling us how to get home from there. Thanks for a great time.
Karen SasakiUnited States
Gustavo was an excellent guide - so knowledgeable, so personable, so friendly and punctual. He responded to my emails quickly when I had concerns before the tour. He managed to keep us together and safe. He packed in as much as he could for a four hour tour and we felt we experienced a full and complete feel for Versailles. I highly recommend Gustavo Z.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Karen! I hope to see you again back in Paris.
