What people are saying about Gallery of Coaches

Fabio was a great tour guide. No complaints. We were shown all the “important stuff” and then given about an hour of free time to explore the gardens. Very well structured and very informative. Perfect if you don’t want to spend all day there. I do wish we had just a little more time to explore the gardens or maybe stop at a cafe in the gardens for a bite to eat. If this spot ranks high on your list, and you want the luxury of time to explore, maybe opt for something else. But this tour was perfect for our needs. We saw the regal apartments and hall of mirrors, then went straight to the golf carts and toured the gardens. Golf carts are slow - I would recommend renting a bike instead (but bike rental was not near the gardens entrance). Overall I was extremely happy with this tour and I highly recommend!

The bus was comfortable and made it easy to visit outside the city, stress free. The tour guides were friendly and approachable with questions. Make sure to rent a golf cart when touring the gardens so you have time to see it all.

Really good experience here. Staff were good. Definitely worth seeing. The only thing is that it is quite out the way of central Paris but definitely worth the train ride I think. Would recommend

Parking really easy. Main Car Park. Well organised and quite impressive. Glad I went. Easy with getyourguide.com app with tickets on for entry.

Access to the palace, grand Trianon and Maria Antonieta domain.
