It was worth it. The free audio was a big help. No need for long lines and the Palace of Versailles is a must see.It is beautiful. The drive back and forth was comfortable and hassle free.
Had a good time, kind of rushed. Place is sooo big. Plan to go twice if you want to see the entire place.
Awesome tour opportunity. We went at our own pace, and since it was a gray, misty day, we didn't want lots of time to wander the gardens anyway, so the time allotted was perfect. Got caught in rush hour traffic coming back to Paris and was very glad I was on a comfy bus and not driving ourselves!
This is a really great option for anyone who is paying a short visit to paris and wants to get out to see Versailles while they're there! Especially if you're traveling alone, taking the half day tour really simplifies getting there and back. You've got plenty of time to go through the palace at your own pace - I went through pretty much the whole audio tour and ended up with lots of time to stroll through the gardens. It really was a nice trip, and I'm so glad I went with the tour rather than on my own!
Lines are very long even with pre purchased tickets, so just be prepared. Versailles is worth it.
The trip from obtaining the tickets at the booking office to returning from Versailles was very professional. The staff were very friendly and cooperative. All of the instructions given by the tour guide were clear and courteous . As for the palace and gardens, they were beautiful. I think that the time that we went on this trip was quite relaxing, but if you did this tour in June to September then it would be very crowded.
It was exactly the type of excursion I wanted. I certainly will be using this service in the future.Thanks for a great trip!
Unfortunately though, in winter don't expect the gardens to be at their best, as winter is when they do maintenance and cover up most statues... But as this cant be helped I would still suggest going on this tour as it was very good!
Great for people who doesn't want a guided tour. The trip from Paris to Versailles was comfortable.
Excellent!! We went in Nov so the 1/2 day tour was a perfect amount of time. If you go when the gardens are in bloom and the other buildings are open you prob want the full day to explore.
Versailles is incredible. I took the independent tour as I do not ike walking behnd someone with a little sign and with 50 other people trying to hear the commentary. We easily picked up a free audio phone and could easily follow along with the stops everywhere. This palace is so massive, so jaw-dropping impressive it renders you speechless. The beauty and sheer wealth of this palace is beyond imagination. I am so happy to have finally had the opportunity to visit. I would love to go again and see more. Just be prepared for tons of walking inside and out. Just a reminder that this palace was constructed 300 years ago. This makes it all the more impressive.
