It's a must if you want to see the palace! My family and I made it a day trip. It was a 30 min drive from Paris. Make sure to line up early because even if you have your tickets the line was still long. The audio guide came in handy and it was nice to learn the history. Make sure you use comfortable walking shoes since you are going to walking throughout the whole estate. Once you enter the gardens there are restaurants and they have really good food. Also if you want to splurge and a bit lazy to walk they offer golf cart and bike rentals to get around! Overall it was a great experience and it's a must!
The boat tour was so much fun, if not incredibly cheesy. It was a great way to see Paris at night and also feel perfectly safe. I was very excited to see the show, because Moulin Rouge is one of my favorite movies. It was a super entertaining experience and I am very glad I did it. However, Though I'm not sure what I was expecting, I was surprised. Some of the costumes were ridiculous full body suits with just the boobs cut out. But hey, it was a good show.
We had a wonderful time exploring the palace and gardens - highly recommend this activity! Just a note, children are free but also need to book tickets (via website). Golf buggy is a great way to explore the gardens with little ones.
The palace is amazing. However, make sure to also visit the trianons, the village of the queen and the gardens. Spend some time by the Grand Canal! It's an amazing experience and it takes a full day to appreciate the site enough.
Amazing experience, Versailles is a magical place, with a lot of history and outstanding architecture. The audio guide is a very nice thing to help you out if you don't speak Franch For sure worth visiting.
