Our tour to Versailles was great. The Palace is beautiful and the grounds too. It was too bad that the Princess's apartment was closed for renovations but otherwise a spectacular tour. A couple issues we had though were that we were supposed to have premier access meaning not have to stand in line. The attendants monitoring the entrance seemed to be unaware of this and initially refused to let us enter without standing in the long line. Finally another attendant showed up and let us have premier access. The other issue was the audio guide equipment didn't work properly and once you are in the tour it's impossible to go back and get another audio guide. Otherwise the tour is highly recommended. Allow 5-6 hours to get through the palace and walk the grounds, so recommend getting there early.
perfect! Just what I expected.
The ticket was a very good value. We took the RER C-I think from right around the corner from our apartment. The train ride was easy and relatively short, and it was pretty easy to find the chateau from the train station. We were very happy that the ticket included audio, because the audio clips in each room made the visit so much more meaningful. The rooms were all very crowded, but it didn't keep us from seeing what we wanted. It was very interesting to see just how 'over the top' every detail of every room was - especially while so much of France was starving. No wonder the final royal couple lost their heads!
My grand Daughter loved the Palace of Versailles but dont use viator to buy your tickets - for us it was a waste of money - although the tickets said entry to the Palace they were not honoured and we had to line up and buy more tickets - my grand daughter is sick so we wanted to not have to waste time in a line - the Palace is a must see - a wonderful day out
Thank you, your follow up to my booking and our visit to Versailles were faultless!
We knew we would not be able to see everything in one day, so bought a two day passport. This was good value for money. The queue to get into the Palace was very long but moved fairly quickly.
beautiful place and we were able to walk on our own and explore!
Just what you'd expect. Nothing special. Didn't skip any lines, but it was good to have planned ahead and to have purchased the tickets in advance.
Prepaid tickets were great as the queue quickly built up to buy on the day. This ticket enabled us to visit all parts of Versailles and the Audio guide was fantastic. The only extra we paid for eur5 pp was the Petite Train which was great to cover most of Versailles and that was our choice you could walk if you want to.
This tour was amazing!
