Awesome tour make sure you take the full the option i would have loved more time
I highly recommend the 8am departure- we got there before Versailles opened and avoided the long lines!

We had to catch a plane in the evening out of Paris but wanted to make a quick trip out to Versailles. This was perfect for that - it is basically a ride to and back from Paris and includes a ticket to the Castle. They get you there early enough so you are the first in line and don't have much of a wait. Great for people in a bit of a time crunch like us not great if you're looking for an in-depth and actual tour.
Overall was nice to not have to worry about lining up for a ticket or wondering where to catch public transport from. If you're looking to watch costs however it's probably just as easy to buy the ticket yourself and just arrange you're own travel.
Although it was a cold, rainy day during the tour, we managed to get a good view of the château's massive gardens and interior.
We enjoyed this but wish we and #39;d realized how little time it gave us on the property. We had to choose btwn the house and the gardens so we didn and #39;t get to see everything we would have liked.

Beautiful and very large. Didn and #39;t have time to see the gardens.
Of course, Versailles is charming if crowded, and worth a visit. This was my second visit, my first trip through Viator. I was expecting, based on the description, a small group. We had a huge coach bus filled with tourists. On the way there, our guide did not provide history or other substantive information regarding Versailles, but he did give information about where to go, when to meet for the return bus, etc. The way back, we had a better guide. She asked each of us if we had any questions about the castle, and seemed enthusiastic to share her knowledge.
The tour started late and the guide asked us to report back on time, so that cut short the time to see the place. And after rushing back to the pick up spot, the bus came an hour late! Bad organising.
Wish the tour guide could get the tour inside the palace and gardens, rather than just a drop off.

Terrible, Don't bother. Go with a group that has skip the line. We NEVER GOT INTO Versailles. Line was two hours long and we had to get the bus back.
