It was one of the best palaces I’ve seen and it’s a must visit in Paris. This tour from GetYourGuide was just the thing we needed to go to the palace as they provided the transport from Paris and back. The experience included the palace tickets and the audio guide as well. It’s perfect for a half day tour.

This tour suited us perfectly as we were able to explore Versailles at our own pace using the audio guide headsets. Staff were friendly and helpful when we had questions or needed assistance but, otherwise, we were free to explore what we were most interested in rather than being bustled from place to place as we would have been with a guided tour. Loved the independence this half day tour gave us.

The trip to and from from Paris to Versailles was seamless. The museum itself was impressive. We took an audio guide tour and I must say that the audio guide is excellent. You can move around the museum at your own pace so you can avoid crowded areas and come back to them later. Takes about 4 hours in all to have a decent tour and not get tired. There is also a cafe but you can only get a seat after buying your refreshments so take note.
