  • Amazing tour with lots of amazing photo opportunity

  • This is 100 worth it, walk straight in and take your time and at your own pace. Beautiful experience!

  • I guess this would be more advantageous in the height of the tourist season, however, it was well worth it as the guide dealt with everything including acquiring the audio guide for our self-guided tour round the Palace.

  • Versailles is beautiful and we did get to skip the line and they included the audio guide, but it said 45 min guided tour-that did not happen. So that was slightly disappointing.

  • This was incredible. Awe inspiring. Skipping the line alone was worth the money. There were very, very long line ups on the day we chose to go. Versailles was just magical.

  • Great deal for seeing the Versailles Palace and garden. Audio guide was great. Place to pick up the tickets was close by the palace.

  • Will make a traditional visit when we are in France

  • Great Tour. Excellent value.

  • SKIP THE LINE and another other SKIP you can do !!! so worth it. Get an audio tour guide and don't forget your own headset/earphones.

  • This tour went super smooth. We met up at the Tour office across from the train station and were walked directly into Versailles. If you wanted, you could get an audio tour set but we chose not to as this was not our first visit. Our tour was at 12:30pm and when we arrived there really was no line, so did we need skip the line...probably not but I have waited over 2 hours in the blazing heat in the past. For me, this was worth taking the chance.
