    Overwelming palace

    , Aug 2022
    The palace is overwelming, so much to see!!!! Love it! We were there at 16.00 p.m. Outside we stood 30 minuten in the lane, in the sun! But it was all worthwhile!

    It was helpful to have a reservation but was still unorganized. I also thought the ticket included the gardens which it did not

    Skip this and do the free stuff

    Longest line to enter was the “skip the line”. So crowded and cramped that learning anything or enjoying the interior was nearly impossible. Skip this go straight to the Grand Canal which is free. Bring a bike or a picnic and enjoy. Don’t waste your money on this.

    Our visit to Versailles was wonderful. Being denied entrance to Louvre was awful. Terrible experience. I called Viator and someone was suppose to get back to me. Have not heard back from anyone.

    I liked to personal recorded descriptions of the various rooms of the palace. I enjoyed the gardens and the boat rentals and the water fountain displays.

    Never made it as there were train works and would have taken close to 2 hrs to get there and 2 hrs back The tour operator should advise if there are issues with transport !
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    I am sorry for your experience. Unfortunately, the transport in Paris is often in issue. We can not know about all the delays, only when the venue itself informs about the major closures.

    The way the palace preserves all the materials and exhibitions. The splendor of the garden and the detailed explanations on each exhibit that enable today's visitors to live what took place about two decades ago.

    Very easy and organized! We recommend buying your tickets this way so you don’t have to wait in the long lines. Be sure to purchase an audio guide.

    The skip the line ticket...

    The skip the line ticket was not sent to me properly - as a result, I had to wait for 1.5 hours, talk to numerous ticket agents, spend money phoning the French help line and wait in the line up again.

    The best place in Paris

    Well, all the museums and palaces are wonderful. But this one is my favourite. I enjoyed both palace and gardens. The show was ok but nothing special though!

    No problem with tickets, no problem with the audio guides. If you are using versailles digital guide, make sure you download it from the hotel.

    One of the best places in Paris.

    One of the best places in Paris. Worth a visit. We have chosen the option with garden but without show since we have read that the show is nothing special. It was only available on Wednesdays. And I am happy we decided to see the garden. It looks absolutely gorgeous, at least in summer.

    It was okay, I'd never go back.

    Was super hot and when I almost passed out the people driving the carts wouldn't help get me to the garden entrance without getting a ticket to ride the cart. I have underlying health issues and even after telling them they just let me sit on the rock and dirt covered ground instead of helping. This was very off putting, it was also very hot throughout the palace, when I got to the end I bought water and thought it helped but it was only temporary relief and I was unable to see most of the gardens. I have a kidney transplant, Lupus and severe vascular disease, this was the only place while I was in Paris that really didn't seem to care about my well being, they were more about the bottom dallor then the need of someone that needed real help. Was the palace beautiful yes, was what I did see in the garden nice but I would not recommend this place for anyone dealing with health issues and I will not be returning. Also, the ladies checking you in were very unpleasant.

    HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

    This was awful. First of all the number provided didn’t work. THEN the tickets given did not work…this was a scam and I will be sure to let everyone know how horrible this company is and to NEVER USE IT. I will never be using this again.

    Great way to skip the line

    Super easy to skip the line which was nice because it was very long. The audio tour was decent once you got your bearings and knew where you were. Carriage exhibit was closed when we were there. Versailles is vast so this helped us narrow it down. I would recommend using the on-site audio tour for purchase as opposed to the app recommended from this tour.

    We got all the links, downloaded the audio guide and the self-guided city tours. We booked gardens and a palace. This option was only available for Wednesday's. But it was ok since we wanted to visit on Wednesday. on the other days you have to book the show as well.

    Visit Versailles. It is amazing.

    After visiting Versailles, it is totally clear why the French Revolution occurred. Everything in this gorgeous palace was so over the top. The extreme narcissism of these rulers astounded this normal person! The art work, especially on each and every ceiling, is gorgeous. I would have loved to have laid in the for to study each our the ceilings. The grounds we equally stunning. Maintaining this site must employ thousands of people. It explains why we need to pay to enter both the building and the grounds. We were all thrilled to experience Versailles.

    You need to download the self guided tour audio before you go unless you have a stong cell signal with internet. I was told by information desk that there was free wifi, but found out from other workers that there is no wireless.

    Thank you for your feedback. Yes. we recommend to download the app with the tours before you go to the place. Thus it will work even without internet.
