What people are saying about Palace of Versailles

A good guide on the coach and the Palace is amazing

Enjoyed the trip and certainly queues for us were reasonably short, even though it was a busy Sunday The gardens were a disappointment as there were no sign posts, no stewards to ask and no seating. The map we were issued with did not seem to relate to what we could see and didn't indicate where we were. We only came across the train after it was too late to join the queue to take it. We were let down badly on the return journey as the coach did not return us to our starting point as promised in your e-mail of 13th May. They finished at the Opera and refused to carry on. We walked a good distance to find a taxi with no luck and back at the Opera Metro the entrance to the line we wanted was closed and we had to walk some distance to the other entrance. it was very hot and we are both in our 80s and were extremely tired. Our tickets cost 7.50 Euro. Most of the above not your fault except for the let down at the end

Well organized but not the greatest headsets

Our tour guide was well organized especially with as large as a group she had (no larger than any other Versailles tour group). She had tickets ready, even marked the return train tickets so we wouldn't get it confused with earlier tickets. Wish the tour group's headset equipment worked better. I kept having problems with mine so I had to keep playing with it, moving the wire around or where the headset was inserted. This took away from the experience and was the worse headset of all the headsets we used on various tours and with different tour groups. I wasn't the only one with problems so the guide had to constantly swap out sets for people. Very distracting and time consuming.

Ticket wasn’t worth it but the place itself is fantastic

The line of people with tickets was roughly x4 the size of the no ticket line. We got there around 9:15 but didn’t get in until about 10:50. There’s only one security screening which was ridiculous considering the amount of people coming in. We went on a Saturday so maybe we just got unlucky but if I was to do it again, I think I’d buy the ticket there or get there at 8:15/8:30 for 9:00 opening. The palace itself was incredible but they let fair too many people in so it does ruin the atmosphere and makes it extremely hard to stop and enjoy. Would recommend hiring a golf cart but get in the line early

The best for an entertaining tour of the castle!

Our guide in Paris, Guiseppe, brought us to Versailles with no problem and even gave us advice on how to come back to our hotels afterwards. He was friendly and explained everything very well. Our guide in the castle was the best. She gave us the inside scoop of the lives of the kings and queens and on how the society in Versailles worked. She told us everything in a very entertaining way and could answer all our questions. She was really lovely and I'll never forget her enthusiasm (and her adorable flower!). Thank you for an amazing experience, much better than any audio guide!! I loved it!!

Disorganized but the guide did his best.

The beginning of the tour was very disorganized. The station we all arrived at was closed which meant having to walk in the rain to a different station. I don’t know if they knew about the closure ahead of time or if it was a last minute change. Due to this we almost didn’t make it onto the train and literally had a minute to spare. Once we got off the train, the guide really did his best to talk with everyone and the walk from the train to the palace was much better. Also, skip the line tickets are a must!
