The audio guides are handy and it was worth it alone for not having to wait in line for enterance. You have approximately 4 hours to enjoy the palace and gardens.

Nice tour bus to site and good guide. this was our first visit to Paris and surrounding areas, and a lot of people trying to get in, so I would highly recommend a skip the line option! We explored the gardens first and they are amazing, tranquil and spread out. We only had about 2 hours in the garden and did not have enough time to explore all sides. We wanted more garden time, and we made it down to the Marie Antionette estate, which we did not know was a separate admission. Had lunch at the garden midpoint between the two estates and surprisingly not busy. The palace interior tour was a mess of people all the way through and not sure how long that can continue since you can see the effects of all the foot traffic on wood and stone floors. Information can be overwhelming and might recommend some advance study before your first trip. We used head phones were helpful in explaining much of the details of all the rooms. The history itself is amazing and it was good to have some fellow tour faces in massive crowds of people.

This was a fantastic tour. We had a beautiful tour bus take us for a fun visit to the Palace of Versailles, along with skip the line tickets, audio tour and detailed instructions for our return trip home. We enjoyed our day at the Palace very much (even my kids enjoyed it). Don't miss the opportunity to buy macaroons at Laduree inside the Palace. The food options at Versailles are limited (not the fault of the tour company), so bring food or leave yourself time to eat outside of the Palace. We didn't like the food at the Palace very much. The only reason I didn't give this tour five stars is because we found it mind-numbing trying to figure out where to pick up the outgoing bus was a bit of an ordeal. We questioned whether we were standing in the right pick up spot and only felt relieved when the bus finally showed up. It was on-time, but we worried and worried! We chose the pick up location near the Triumph D'Arc (they give you the option of three locations) and it's simply a spot at random street corner with no signage. Just put the address in your GPS and cross your fingers! BTW, the tour just allots for the bus ride, audio tour (provided by Versailles) and the skip the line tickets.

Very organized. Our tour guide was great and it was nice not to have to worry about getting out to the palace. Also nice to have tickets already, although the security line was fairly long. Plenty of time to tour the house and gardens. Such an amazing place - definitely worth the trip!
