OK day

Versailles and the gardens were beautiful. The tour company was very disorganized. The bus picks you up at 3 locations but they aren't clear on where to pick up the bus. Also, at end of day, we were told to meet in parking lot. Larking lot is huge so we were confused on where exactly we needed to go. it was pouring down rain and you would think bus would be a little early. However, it was late. We could see the bus was parked down the street but they made us stand in the rain for an extra 10 minutes. It ruined a lretty good day since the whole bus was angry.

Our guide Theo to and from was personable and extremely kind and helpful. I’d rate the gardens as a 4 … many fountains were not working but the gardeners are doing a good job of keeping hedges pruned.

This “tour” was nothing more than transportation to and from Versailles. You’re much better off with tickets and an Uber

Fine, a bus ride and a ticket

The coach is nice. There is not enough explanation of things to feel comfortable. We were realeased at the gardens and told to be back in 1.5 hours. No explanation or tips on things to see. Told that we would see the fountains but did not. There is no audio or communication on the bus. You are basically paying for front of the line and a ride. Could have been so much better with just a little effort on the operators part. It would have cost them nothing but added so much.

Versailles is Spectacular

Versailles is stunning and a must see during any visit to Paris. We booked our Magic Ways tour through Viator along with a number of other tours - click, click, vacation planned! Magic Ways offers three different pick-up/drop-off points around Paris where you can board their buses to travel the short distance to Versailles. Very convenient. When we reached the site, our minders - Inez and Javier - whisked us past the long queues and into a side entrance reserved for groups. Inez sorted the audio guide equipment and sent us on our way. We were told to gather at the meeting point no later than 4:15 pm which gave us ample time to explore this magnificent palace. The audio tour is easy to use and contained interesting commentary though the personal touch of a human guide would have been nice. The gardens, in winter, are so serene that we spent a lovely hour or so wandering the myriad paths. There are a couple of food options within the site, so you won't go hungry. Be sure to visit the sweet little gift shop for fun souvenirs! From pick-up to drop-off, the experience was well organized and easy breezy.

Nice tour. Guide was helpful. Waited for the return bus a bit longer than i think we should have. Otherwise, it was a great experience. plenty of time to explore. Would like the overall time printed somewhere in the details.

The palace

Versailles is an amazing place to visit. The tour was as described on the web site; on time, very good bus, guide very friendly. The only thing you should tell people before is that the audio guide does not include earphones, it wasn't fun to realize it when you get the machine and hold it with your hand next to your ear while you are walking for 2 hours.
