The skip the line part was awesome, as the lines were very long. The tour was excellent, especially the headsets which allowed you to hear the guide no matter where you were standing. I didn't like the empty time between the fountain show and the tour which ended at 5, but we got a chance to buy the best chocolate covered cherries I have ever had from the chocolate shop across from the train station. Better be sure you have round trip train tickets back and don't miss the last train at midnight. You'll miss some of the fireworks just to be close to the entrance or you will miss that train back to Paris. They let you in at 8 to see the fountain show, but don't start the fountains up until 9, which means an hour of milling around doing nothing and waiting while all the gardens are locked and guarded. The fountain show is fabulous, and worth the trip.

I thought our guide was very thorough and informative and did a great job. I would have given a higher rating, but the customer service person (telephone) I purchased the tickets from did not understand anything about the tour and timing, resulting in us not being able to see the gardens as we were told.Closure of the palace between events and timing of last train were never explained until we were on the tour, thus causing a bad experience. The website and support staff need to provide more detail.

I wish we had more tidbits of information. I wanted little extra information and random knowledge. I did not get it. Our guide was nice and knowledgable but I could have used an audio guide for the same thing. I also wish they would be at the meeting point a few minutes early. We were confused and they were late.
