ordered our tickets in advance for a guided tour so check in an hour ahead was easy. Wifi on the bus kept my teen happy. Our bus left at 11:15 and no break until after tour for eating so either eat before you get on or be able to wait until after 1:30. Bathroom break before tour started after security checks which was appreciated. Tour Guide "Stephanie" very knowledgeable, easy to understand in English, delivery very natural (not like reading or repeating a memorized script.) Everything on time. We enjoyed our visit!

Comfortable quick afternoon tour to the castle

It costs something, but it really saves time. Comfortable journey in a comfortable bus in the middle of Paris to directly in front of the castle. This is how you make a visit if you don't have a whole day to go to Versailles. And the group came right in, while visitors waited 2.5 hours outside. It's very crowded inside. For a moment not paying attention, we had already lost the group, but found them again thanks to information about earplugs (signal weaker-closer again). There was still a short time to look at the gardens. This tour is too short for those who like to visit them extensively and also want to spend a lot of time in the castle. It was enough for us. Tip: be at the meeting point a little earlier, because the check-in for several tours ran with a corresponding crowd. The tour to Versailles was then called out loud so that we could proceed and got on the bus in time.
