The biggest perk of this event, is that you can reserve your spot for this tour the night it starts. For such an opportunity, and even in Paris, thank you so much. It was a wonderful experience! The guide Lucy took everyone to the bus, which was 200 meters away from the main office. The driver took us to Versailles quickly and without any problems. Then at the main entrance to the castle we were given our entrance tickets and an audio guide. We were also picked up from the agreed place without any problems. Very grateful for the work done by everyone!

It was wonderful, the palace of Versailles was very beautiful, the paintings, works of art and sculptures, the gardens were beautiful and well-kept. I could only object that there are no garbage cans in the gardens and I saw many people eating a snack without being able to throw away their garbage.

Wonderful, a shame that several things are closed. Entrance to the gardens is available to everyone, no need to purchase separately

It was wonderful. Beautiful weather and the castle and gardens are unique. I'm looking forward to another visit this year

Versailles is really impressive and definitely a must see when visiting Paris
