What to expect
Make your way to a central Paris meet-up point that's located on a metro line, and then board a climate-controlled coach headed to the Palace of Versailles. As you enjoy views of the Parisian suburbs that surround Versailles, listen to a pre-recorded audio guide to learn a bit about life in the Versailles court and about the flamboyant reign of Louis 14th, the French "Sun King" who established the palace. Upon arrival at Versailles, you have time to explore the sprawling property on your own: walk the manicured gardens, peek into the king’s own apartments, and tour the palace itself. See designs by Le Notre, Mansart, and Le Vau. Your audio guide provides background info on each area. Following your time at Versailles, meet back up at the coach for the return trip to Paris, where this tour concludes.

The tour was nothing special. We felt rushed and didn’t have time to even listen to the recorded info in the rooms. Only had time to see about 1/4 of it. Nor time was spent on the bus than at Versailles

Perfect!
Jan 2020 • Family
Yes, we had to "check" Versailles off our list, and this half day trip was PERFECT. We took the afternoon tour - everything ran smoothly, on time, small group of people, well organized. Our audio tour headsets and "pen" were just what we needed. We saw all the rooms described on the tour, had time for coffee, and walked the gardens. Yes, it was cold but ever so worth it. We skipped the lines to get in, did our own tour at our own pace, and met back at the designated time to get on the bus. Ours was the only tour bus on time, and delivered everything as was stated online. Thank you for a perfect tour and great afternoon!

Versailles Half Day - skip it!
Jan 2020
Versailles itself was beautiful, this tour was terrible. Apparently according to palace policy, only groups of 20 may be admitted at a time per group leader. This excursion had a full coach of around 60 people (some of whom were staying for the full day and went through a different entrance). We were divided arbitrarily into 3 groups. Surprise, surprise - my girlfriend was the only black person on the tour and we ended up in the small third group. This meant waiting outside in the morning January cold while the two other groups from our bus were taken inside and watching other groups come and go. We had arrived at the entrance at 9:57am, and our group wasn't let inside until 11:03 due to this tour's extremely poor planning (and had to be back at the bus for noon). Either limit the capacity to 20, or bring 3 guides along instead of money grabbing. Would've been close to the same cost to Uber there and back instead. Get there on your own, early, and it'll be wonderful.

Offer did not include tickets to the Louvre, as stated.
Nov 2019 • Couples
The tour itself was fine. Versailles was nice. The self guided tour was so-so, but I knew what I was paying for. However, the voucher and website says tickets to the Louvre Museum are included. That’s one of the reasons I chose this tour. The tour guide and travel agency, Paris City Vision, said it’s not included, even though it says it right on the voucher I had to give them. No one would even look at the voucher, and said to take it up with TripAdvisor. I called Viator, the booking company, who said it was to be included. On the phone they said I’d be given a partial refund in 24-48 hours, but then sent an email saying the would look into it, and give me an answer in 7-10 business days, if I’d receive anything, or not. Not only would the Louvre cost me 15 Euro each, but my schedule was thrown off due to not being able to go that day, and we weren’t able to visit the Louvre.

Dear Jody G, We are sorry to read your comment. To give you more details, There has been a misunderstanding while updating the product with our partner. The Louvre has never been included in this tour, we try to figure out how this information managed to appear on the voucher. Our team in the office and the host for the tour gave you the right information. Your tour to Versailles did not include an entrance to the Louvre. We apologize for the misunderstanding. For a refund of this portion that was not included in your tour, pealse refer to your travel agency. Best Regards, Alexia

The skip the line was awesome, the guided part was ok. While we had individual headsets to hear the tour guide, the sound quality was poor as she too should have a headset with microphone. It’s too busy and crowded a facility to otherwise hear.

Visiting the Palace
Oct 2019 • Couples
The trip was ok. Versailles is beautiful but they had two of the rooms closed off. We also had tickets to the garden included but there wasn't enough time to see the gardens before we had to be back at the bus. Make sure you dress warm and bring an umbrella if there is a hint of rain. We had skip the line tickets but there was still a bit of a wait in the cold rain. No cover until you enter the building. Also, it was just an audio tour. I definately prefer a personal guided tour.

Sprinting Thru Versailles
Mar 2018 • Family
On the one hand, I'm glad we did this because we got Versailles "checked" - on the other hand - we literally had to sprint thru. You cannot chose were you go (I wanted to see the Queen's apartments) - you just see the King's apartments and famous hall of mirrors. We only had an 1.5 hours so had to go very fast. Getting in with the group took forever. If you really want to see Versailles - take the RER (its easy!) and spend the day at your own pace - that's what I'll do next time...

This tour was a sheer delight, the outgrounds are sensational & entering the residence it self blows one mind, spent several hours here & managed to not miss anything. Loved Maroe antoinette,s rose garden & private cottage. We
contracted a tour agency thru our hotel in Paris. Had a lovely late lunch in St Cloud. Don,t miss this.
