Excellent services, easy booking and following de instructions, audio guide was very precise with matching information, also easy to use.
Javier_J, Jul 2023
Long lines to enter, no guide available and excursion details do not was clear that was without a guide. Crowds of people make difficult to appreciate the Palace.
Very dissaponting experience
Mary_C, May 2023
The Palace itself was too over the top for my taste and lacked enough specific information. The audio tour did not sufficiently describe everything. The gardens were breathtakingly beautiful. So well maintained. Insufficient signage to let you know where you were.
Don’t buy tickets here. It’s a scam
Catherine_G, Oct 2022
Do not buy your tickets here. This sight is not real. We arrived at palace and our tickets did not work. We were so embarrassed and mad
We spent a ton of money on these tickets to learn that they were not real sight. Be careful and
This was my second trip...

This was my second trip to Versailles and I discovered new items not viewed before. Took the tram ride which was very helpful to reach other areas.
It was really great...

It was really great experience. The access was quick and we did not have any problem to get there. Thanks Viator…!
Do not buy from Viator - use official website please…
Niti_G, Jul 2022
Viator has been having a lot of problems lately (see multiple reviews). We booked a tour with audio but had to pay extra for devices at the palace as the ticket only allowed entry, not a self guided tour. The palace / museum recommended to always use official website for bookings. Now I am reaching them for refunds but no one has reached back after an initial ‘someone will get in touch with you asap’ note. (In all fairness the rules had changed just a week before our trip but Viator as a service provided SHOULD HAVE HAD THE COURTESY to proactively update foreign tourists about the mess they will run into when they reach the palace.
Nice to see

Palace and gardens were very nice. Getting into the palace was disorganized and wait was too long. No organized line and no one to give directions as to which line to stand in.
Family trip to Versailles

It was a last minute purchase.
Despite of having difficulty getting QR code, the customer service stuffs on the phone were efficient, courteous and quick!! I was very impressed with their quality of service that they provided us. Of course everything after that went smoothly. We first did the garden and Trianon. We highly suggest this combination tickets!! Thank you!!
Bien, mais trop cher pour rien
Marilou_H, Nov 2022
Avec ce forfait, je pensais que j’aurais une façon de me répéter dans le jardins. Je me suis plutôt rendu compte que j’avais payé cher pour rien car tout le monde avait le même accès que moi. Je comprends que je faisais plus réserver une heure d’entrée pour ne pas faire la file. J’aurais préféré prendre un autre forfait qui m’aurait permis de voir plus. Et la voiturette dans les jardins c’est un must.
