Well, a comfortable bus and it left on time and initial instructions given to us were fine. But when we were returning it was little confusing as there wasn't a proper agent to direct us. I was confused as to which bus I should get into. I think the returning trip also has to be better organised with an agent properly directing us. If not it was a good experience. Even though we were told that we can 'skip the line' , still wr had to stay in the eye for a long time.

The transportation to and from Versailles was very good, the problem was on the way back because there was no bus back to Paris and we had to take a train at our own expense.

Transportation was clean and safe. Staff was pleasant and the views were amazing. There was a little hiccup with the no line entry as we waited in line a lot longer than anticipated. There was also confusion about the return home ride, however, there was traffic which is out of anyone's control. Over great experience.

The guide after the tour was no where to be found at the meeting spot which was annoying since I didn't want to miss the bus going back to Paris. Otherwise the experience was good.
