My girlfriends and I took three tours with Aeon - the Catacombs, Versailles and the Marais.
All 3 were very informative, and amazing. The guides in particular were great - very friendly, and attentive to our needs. It helped that our groups were all small. I think the largest group was the Catacombs Tour (with about 7 people).
My personal favorite was Versailles, since I LOVE everything about Marie Antoinette.
That reminds me - I know the tour was supposed to meet earlier, but we arrived at almost 10 due to a late start on our part. We rushed to the Catacombs, but were convinced we'd be too late. However, we were met at the meeting point by Callaway, who had circled back to look for us because he knew we were supposed to be on the tour. We simply joined up with the rest of the group. Saved the day for us, since the line was already bananas at that hour. (Warning: if you do arrive late, it would be very difficult to find the guide - especially if they are already underground!)
Definitely recommend them. Great guides, and our tours felt very personal.
My sister and I went on a tour of Versailles with Fred. He met us right in the center of Paris, and amazingly, we were the only two people on the tour that day.
The tour started by as soon as we entered the train. There is a special train car to Versailles, that has been amazing designed to look like the inside of Versailles. Unreal. Had never even heard of this before Fred brought us on there. He said they always tried to bring guests on that specific train, as it really sets the tour in motion.
But enough about trains! We arrived at Versailles and quickly grabbed our tickets from a shop just near the Versailles entrance. Whew - that saved a lot of time. Saw a queue already miles long that morning!
The tour itself was fabulous. My sister and I are quite well traveled but usually stay away from tours. We are so glad we did, and even better, that we had Fred as our guide. The tour itself took longer than advertised, almost 6 hours. But we didn't mind at all, and actually loved the extended time we had exploring the gardens afterwards.
Was a bit nervous about booking our Versailles tour online, but am happy to say I had nothing to worry about. Our guide (Vadim) was brilliant. He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable (he used to work at the actual Palace of Versailles!). He told us all kinds of things we would have never discovered on our own.
There were 6 of us so it was a very personal tour, with plenty of time to interact with Vadim and ask questions.
Would definitely suggest you take Aeon's tour of Versailles!
After much research, I decided to book a tour of Versailles with Aeon due largely to their responsive customer service. As my husband and I were traveling with two teenage children, I had many reservations about booking a day tour to Versailles.
However, I am happy to say I was very pleased with our touring experience and thrilled with the way our guide catered to our entire family. Our guide, Marie, was brilliant. She was able to keep the kids entertained while making sure my husband and I were also engaged. Afterwards, Marie gave us some great ideas for restaurants and parks, which we loved.
