Versailles/Champagne Tour Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

Although I visit Paris almost every year I've never been to Versailles or the Champagne region; I'll be visiting the city with my sister-in-law and my niece this summer and they'd like to see both places, and I suppose that I should finally see them, too. However, I have an intense dislike of the long lines and crowds that are found in tourist destinations (which is why I have never been up the Eiffel Tower) and so I'm thinking that a guided tour might be the way to go when we visit these spots.

I'd like to ask if anyone out there has a recommendation for a tour guide or tour group for either of these places? I'm perfectly willing to go out to Versailles and/or Champagne on my own if that is better, but I remember reading somewhere that, at least for Versailles, a guided tour is the way to go.

Merci d'avance to all of you smart and experienced travelers for your help!
