As you walk, enjoy your guide’s colorful commentary. Hear about the eccentricity and ambition of the French monarchy from the mid-17th century until the French Revolution. Discover the exciting details of the day in 1789 when Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were dragged from Versailles by an angry mob, to be eventually beheaded in Paris. 
Finish your tour with a stroll through the gardens, covering more than 1,800 well-manicured acres. Depending on the day and your tour option, catch the Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens show before departing.

Our guide was fantastic was very knowledgeable on the history of Versailles and very personalable. The bus driver could have been more personable and helpful. We stopped for a bit due to the protest, he spoke to the police in French but didn't communicate with the passengers as to what was going on, he pulled the bus over went for a smoke leaving us on the bus wondering what we should do. His behavior was just odd.

I would say pass on this one. The house is ok but the tour is brutally dry. Really needed some humor was just fact over fact and the place was so packed it was not a good time. The garden is really cool. Probably because we went off on our own without a guide. The guide was nice and knew a ton but boring so boring. For the rest of our trip when we had would you rathers this was an option like would you rather spend 1 hour in the metro bathroom or 3 days straight do the Versailles tour.

Sad, when we got there there was no headphones for us to do the tour.. we had to wait out in the could for like 30min then the tour guide finally said we had to start the tour without headphones.. is crazy because with the amount of people inside is impossible for a group of 22 people to hear someone talking inside is was very difficult to collect information.. Victoria the tour guide did what she could I guess.. city of Wanders was not ready with our stuff. The tour was very fast and not enough time to do much

Contrary to the title of the tour, you will still have to wait in line for the timed entrance to the palace. We had tickets for a 10:45 entrance and did not get into the palace until 11:10. Numerous other tour groups had tickets for the same time and some were even allowed entry with a 10:50 time before our group.

We were never picked up for our visit to Versaille. Upon calling Viatore about this, we discovered they are just middlemen and basically have nothing to do with any problems a tour might incure. The real tour operator, City Wonders, would give us credit for the tour but recharge an additional 20%. My suggestion is to book all tours through your hotel concierge, price is the same and no problems.
