It was overall a good trip but it was exceptionally busy so I think the bus should have left a little earlier so we could get in at our ticketed time- 12:10 opposed to missing that start time and having to wait an extra 30 min at the gate before we could enter. I know you don't control how busy the venue is but on the day we went it was extra busy ( this is my second Versailles tour with your company) and this experience wasn't as good as my first.

The guide was wonderful. Your website gave two different places to meet our bus. Two links both lead to the wrong location. Very confusing. Numerous people had the same issue. Needs to be corrected immediately

The directions for where to meet were very confusing. Needed to be much more clear. Need a better meeting place. When off the bus and splitting into three groups, the group leaders did not call out the numbers so we had to ask which group. After asking and being told it was group two we found out it was group three. Really need to make guides call out group number loudly. We do appreciate being able to get in a later group as we missed the one we were scheduled for because we went to the wrong place. Our group two guide was great. She had good stories and knowledge.

Skip the Long Lines and Begin Exploring the Palace Immediately

With this ticket, you can skip the long lines and dive right into exploring the opulent palace halls and rooms as soon as you reach your destination. Deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palace of Versailles received a whopping 7,700,000 tourists in 2017, making it one of the most visited sites in Paris alongside the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. The palace has spacious hallways with several beautiful and intricate sculptures lining the walls. Your audio guide will help you understand the significance of many of these artefacts as you explore the monument.

Admire Some of the Most Lavish Areas of the Palace

The King’s Grand Apartment, the Queen’s Grand Apartment, and the Coronation Room are some of the palace’s most gorgeous areas to visit. The Apartment of the King consists of seven interconnected salons, each dedicated to a classical Roman or Greek deity. The salons house some of the most amazing paintings from the Renaissance era, such as the painting of Mercury in his Chariot by Jean Baptiste de Champaigne in the Salon of Mercury, and the Meal at the House of Simon the Pharisee by Paolo Veronese in the Salon of Hercules. You will also have time to explore the famous Hall of Mirrors, a vast hall where guests were received and entertained.

Stroll through the Royal Gardens after your Palace Tour

Designed by André Le Nôtre under the aegis of Louis XIV, the garden in the Versailles Palace is home to over 200 statues, innumerable fountains, sprawling flower beds, and serene ponds. It is an excellent place to relax after your tour of the palace interiors. The garden comes alive with activity in the summer months when various events such as the Grandes Eaux are organized.

At the end of this tour, you would have explored and learnt about one of Paris’ grandest palaces. You can get back on the tour bus once you are done looking around and head back to the drop-off point in a comfortable coach.
