The gardens are breathtaking, every time I turned around there was something else to see, the fireworks were fantastic , the sculptures were classical and beautiful the new art of Anish Kapoor fitted in seamlessly. It is something to see and I would go again. I had my advanced ticket and could go straight through to the gardens without queuing.

It was an amazing evening. Even with the large crowd, the grounds were easy to get around. The only big bottleneck is getting into and out of the gardens. The fountain shows and fireworks were beautiful and the weather was perfect.

We very much enjoyed our experience at Versailles - it was a long day as we had been there since early morning to do the castle tour.

This is one of those experiences that you cannot really describe to anyone! Pictures dont do it justice...the atmoshpere, the music, the fountains and the lights, as well as the fireworks at the end was something that I will treasure for the rest of my life!

A great experience, only wish transportation from the event to Paris had been available.

Worth it - consider staying in a hotel in Versailles to avoid the mad rush to the train.

The Palace and gardens were absolutely outstanding
I am not happy with my booking with Viator unfortunately. Nothing on our ticket stated that we could not enter any areas until the evening after 18:30 So we had to pay an entrance fee to the gardens or sit outside until 18:30!! Yes we paid extra for the night show but wrongly assumed that because we brought a Versailles Garden Tickets we could enter the gardens in the day time!
It took us nearly 4 hours to go around the gardens so if we hadn't of paid the extra entrance fee we would defiantly not seen all the gardens, inside the palace and the fountain night show!
Be aware that the ticket you receive on line IS NOT A TICKET we had to in fact queue for ages at the ticket office, our fault that we did not see it in the small print! We nearly missed the show!
The staff were not knowledgeable about anything, lots of people were asking the staff questions and the answer was 'I think' or 'maybe' no one had a clue what was going on.
There were 4 toilet blocks in total, in the ladies there were 2 cubicles in each, the men 1 cubical and urinal. So just 8 toilets for women and 4 toilets for the men and urinals for approx 80,000 people!!!!!!!!!
By 2pm there was no toilet paper in the ladies, no soap, in the men's there was water/urine flooding the floor and queues were 25 - 30 people queuing every block of toilets all day.

Loved the gardens but in the summer it doesn't get dark until around 10:15 so the lights in the fountains are hard to see until then and the gardens close at 10:50, not much time. The fireworks were GREAT but make sure if you are taking the metro back to Paris you leave a little early to beat the crowd. We did the afternoon tour of the gardens as well and if we had a do- over we would have only done the afternoon gardens.

way too many people, could not see the dance performances or the fountain performances because it was so crowded, the performances moved from room to room so it was like a stampede each time we moved

The performance was poor. We didn't really enjoy it. And nobody seemed to know what to do with my vouchers. The event outdoors was very confusing. Nobody seemed to know where to go. We were supposed to get a map and some direction but didn't until after about. Not a good experience.

The lights can only be see towards the end of the show... Pl take a golf cart on rent as otherwise you will be tired walking the many gardens
