They have everything and managed to spoil it! As many people say it is very disappointing from so many points of view : - when you have a museum pass though Versailles is included the gardens are not included and if you go when they have the fountains you cannot enter where they do not sell the pass, so you...

We arrived the afternoon before we planned to visit the chateau. This allowed us to walk around the lovely town of Versailles which is steeped in history and to have a restful beginning to the day. We had booked a guided tour of the King's Private Apartments for 9.30 a.m. in English. This allowed us to visit uncrowded areas of... More

Arriving around lunchtime from Paris, the queues to visit the Palace were filling the courtyard and on inquiring, I was told that there was a 2 hour wait! So I headed for the gardens to pay 9€ (this appears to be the weekend charge) and was given a leaflet headed "The 2014 Musical Fountains Show" On looking closely at the... More

Website says buy advance tickets and arrive before 9 am to avoid the crowds. Having paid 50 euros and specifically stayed in town the night before, we arrived at 830 only to face a 2 hour queue with no segregation of those who pre paid to those buying tickets on the day. To cap it all we were refused a... More

Its truly the title of which i had given for this review. The Palace, grounds, and chalets, on this estate is mind blowing.The main attraction is the palace, i think the attraction i liked best,is the Banquet hall (room of mirrors ) which is beautiful,and the bedroom where Louis the 14th slept, a step back in time. Its a good... More

This is probably the most breathtaking place! From the moment you look at her you a taken away years back when king and queens lived here. Everything is just beautiful! Room after room full of beautiful history, painting, pictures, furniture! It's a place you must visit at least once in your life! My 15 year old daughter and my 11... More

Originally I had decided that it would be a cheaper option to get a train out and do the an auto guided tour of the Chateau and gardens of Versailles. After the free walking tour of Paris yesterday with Sandemans my husband and I decided to pay the €30 for their 3 hour tour of the gardens. Thank goodness we... More

I knew Versailles would be impressive but the grounds exceeded expectations. I truly think Louis the Fourteenth must have been trying to recreate Heaven. Every where you look, there is something which takes your breath away. One view particularly - of a lake - is spectacular - as you look at the lake, there is another beyond, then another -... More

I have never seen anything more luxurious. The palace is really impressive. There is a huge quantity of art pieces, paintings, culture! You should walk trough the gardens and be delighted with the statues, flowers and lakes.

We had the Paris Museum Pass & arrrived before 9am on Sunday by the metro/RER, so the queue wasn't very long. The palace is beautiful inside but it was difficult to enjoy the rooms with the large crowds and all the annoying tour groups. We got ahead of the crowd part-way through the building, so we were able to take... More
