Very convenient and inexpensive way to see Versailles

Tour was good, a bit of a wait when we got there but overall great experience. The bus ride there and back was good, it was new and well maintained.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

We did the half day 4 hour trip and it wasn't long enough! I recommend the morning as it can get crowded VERY quickly throughout the Palace. When we visited the gardens weren't in bloom but the palace itself takes an entire day to see.

The morning tour was perfect for what I had planned that day. We were back in Paris before 1pm and that gave me plenty of time to see the Army Museum and parts of the Le Jardin des Tuilerie that I missed the day before.

Just perfect. The morning trip was ideal for me as I had plans to see the another landmark. The bus ride was less than 1 hr and we got there before many of the other tour buses which gave us plenty of time to tour the place. We were back in Paris by noon and still had the rest of the day for other sites. If you want to see the garden and spend more time there, this tour would not be enough time, but perfect for viewing the palace.
