the meeting spot for this trip was very convenient. I loved being able to "skip the line" and have the guides waiting as we were able to use the restroom or grab a snack at the cafe while the guides were the first people in line. waiting for the audio set was about the only painful part as you're unable to skip that line :-) I would have even liked for the trip to be longer to give you more time in the palace but still feel I had enough time to see what is needed to be seen.

The Chauteau Versailles was nice to see. First the necessary time was lost to enter, to retrieve audio and a map. Certainly that card -which was free- could have been given right with the audio. Inside the castle it was too crowded in my opinion. You regularly get a push from someone else who thinks they go first. GYG can do nothing about this of course. Hall of Mirrors is beautiful. I liked the gardens and fountains the most. The weather was also beautiful, undoubtedly plays a part, ;). The bus was late due to fuel problems. We left 45 minutes late, but didn't get that time. I now had to run very fast through the gardens to see everything. It is not something that GetYourGuide and/or MagicWays can do anything about, but if you arrive 45 minutes late, you could also leave 45 minutes later.

A very nice trip. Versailles is beautiful. It is definitely a place where you can spend a good day with your family. The audio guide in Polish is definitely an asset here. The only thing that you can find fault with is the time specified in the tour description - we left on 10.10, came back at 16.45, but the time actually spent in the facility is 11.45 - 15.45, so 4 hours.
