Versailles Palace and Giverny day trip by tour bus

We are considering a day trip to both Versailles Palace and Giverney in early October.

The tour we are thinking of doing arrives at the Versailles Palace first then leaves the Palace at 2.30 pm. The bus then goes on to GIveney.

On Saturday and Sunday the musical fountains are operating in the Palace Gardens from 11am - 12 noon.

My question is this.Is it possible to see the musical fountain s between 11 am - 12 noon or would we be tied up inside the Palace seeing the interior of the Palace at that time?

If you are thinking of the tour sold by Viator you will find that their website says that "[on} Saturdays & Sundays to October 31st .....you have the option to see the magnificent fountain displays..." .

Use of the word "option" suggests that you won't be able to fit in the fountain show and a full guided tour of the palace during your stop in Versailles.

But why not contact the operator and ask them? You may reasonably expect a sensible reply given the high price of these tours.

And unless your time is very short why not do Versailles and Giverny on different days? They both deserve plenty of time; and Versailles at least can very easily be done by local RER train from Paris at a much lower cost.
