Dagtrip met kleine groep naar Versailles vanuit Parijs per minibus
U heeft vier uur (tour van halve dag) of 7 uur (tour van hele dag) de tijd om het paleis, de tuinen en de Trianons (hele dag) zelfstandig te verkennen met behulp van uw audiogids. Deze gids leidt u door de rijk gedecoreerde staatsievertrekken, waar de koning van Frankrijk bijna altijd in het openbaar leefde, onder de ogen van zijn hofhouding. Bewonder daarna de Spiegelzaal, een sierlijke galerij die eer betoont aan de glorie van de koning met zijn ruim 70 meter aan spiegels en marmer, en een plafondschildering die het bewind van Lodewijk XIV voorstelt.
Ga naar buiten en wandel door de Franse tuinen, ontworpen door André Le Nôtre, waarin zich fonteinen, de Orangerie en ongeveer 200 standbeelden bevinden.
Afhankelijk van de datum van uw tour kunt u genieten van Versailles' populaire muzikale tuinen of muzikale fonteinen, die met klassieke muziek de toch al betoverende sfeer nog verder verhogen.

We had the all day trip. The driver met us promptly at our hotel and delivered us to another person who walked us about 5 blocks to find our Versaille guide. She was very competent, knowledgeable, and considerate of her clients. After the tour we had hours to tour on our own. We could walk on our own to all areas or we could take the tram to the lower new area. It was okay going on the tram but it was difficult getting a ride back because there were not sufficient trains for all the people. You could rent a golf car for 40 euro for one hour. Our driver met us promptly at 5 pm and drove us back to our hotel
Very nice driver. On time for pick up and drop off.No waiting on the line to go inside the castle.Very well organization.
We had the driver pick us up at the hotel. The driver was excellent. The Versailles palace is beautiful. We missed the fountain show. Not able to find it and no one around to ask.
The minibus service fine, although the day we went it took 3 minibus to accomodate all of the travellers. One of the drivers got stuck in traffic on the return trip, so was late for the pickup but the other drivers shuffled and took care of it. The guides from the drop-off point into Versailles was a disappointment. Not sure exactly what Skip-The-Line means here but we walked to outside the ticket area where they then went into to get our tickets, and then came back and told us that they were being printed. We waited in the sun for about 30 minutes waiting on tickets. Our guide then took us thru the entrance and got our headsets and left. Not much of a guiding experience. We were on the full day tour and had to ask our guide for our garden tickets. I did not think this was well organized at all. Once inside, and on our own then the self guided tour of the palace was fine, although very crowded. The palace tour only took a little over an hour, and the half day tour may have been a little tight to see all of the gardens but I'm not sure you need to. We wound up killing a lot of time. The meeting place is at a small restaurant, and it was a wonderful place to get lunch and people watch while waiting on the return shuttle.
Really convenient tour, excellent driver Pascal, you were lovely!, and beautiful part of French history. We arrived on a little street corner to meet up with our guide and the rest of our group. This specific Viator tour just gives you a person to give you the tickets and organize your meeting point. This is NOT a tour guide taking you through the buildings themselves. This could have been more organized, but I don't think that was our guide's fault. Tickets should be able to be printed prior to guests arriving instead of waiting outside for 30 minutes while our coordinator went inside to get them printed. Large groups to pass out tickets to, just took a lot of time. This is an audio guide tour with a little handheld phone you type in the room number and it tells you all about it. A fine way to see such a monument. Nothing to do with Viator: Versailles palace itself is SO overcrowded you could barley even walk into the next room. It was hot and bustling and shuffling. There is no way to fix this, but just be warned before you go!
Paid for hotel pick-up and drop- off, priority entry and full access. Driver was late he did call, a plus, we DID NOT HAVE PRIORITY ENTRY. People did not show up, our guide did not have tickets, her partner wasn't there with the tickets therefore we waited in the crowd for over an hour, in the rain just to get to the security gate. From hotel pickup to entry into the palace was two hours. Were warned to use restrooms immediately as they are only available at entry and exit. Stood in another line. Entered the Palace and the crowds were unbearable. Could not see anything as we were packed in like sardines. Tour leaders and their tourists pushed and shoved everyone aside. Rude doesn't cover it. So sorry we opted for this venue - I would see more in a video. The rain ended and we did the full access tour outside - that was fine. The gardens are wonderful and glad to see them in person but not at the price we paid. We met our driver on time but he was not able to drop us off at our hotel because of traffic and a construction crane not his fault - he was a good guy. We got close to our hotel and walked. I do not recommend this tour. Too disorganized and not what we paid for priority access.
Very good value for money. Good driver no guide but I felt that he could have made some casual comments during the trip in relation to landmarks, just highlighting some of the items of interest would have lightened the mood. I appreciate that the driver is not a guide and that guides generally put a lot of time into their presentation however a few comments would have added significantly to the experience.
Our driver picked us up promptly as planned. He was very courteous and gave us good information and historical facts about Paris along our trip to Versailles. Once we got to Versailles he explained where we would meet our guide to get our audio guides. All went well and we had a wonderful self tour through Versailles and the gardens. He met us as planned and returned us to our hotel. It was a very good experience!
Our tour driver and fellow travelers were great. The experience at Versailles was less than awesome...soooooo crowded!!! Way too many people at one time...rude people as well. The outdoors was fine...very nice!
