    Beyond your Expectations!

    Versailles is beyond your expectations. We did not have a guide, it was audio. Therefore you can get transportation to Versailles and not be rushed. Be sure and make a reservation at Alain Ducasse's restaurant. Don't miss the gardens and the Hall of Mirrors!

    A Spectacular Palace
    MarthaR_D
    , May 2022
    Being inside an actual palace and seeing the opulence first hand. The audio tour was well done and easy to understand. However!! Our reservation made it sound like we needed to pick up our tickets ahead of the actual starting time - the words in our information say ""Before your tour/activity begins, please go to the starting point to redeem this ticket for your entry ticket. That is incorrect as most of the time, no one is at that starting point. It should read "your entry ticket will be given to you when you redeem this ticket at the beginning of our tour. We arrived early at Versailles and were told we could go into the gardens twice, so we could fill some time until our entry to the palace. It turns out that you must re-enter the gardens through a different entry point, and we spent 20 minutes of walking to get to the next entry. We would liked to have had the golf cart, but they are only available at one gate. On the return it was not made clear that the drop-offs would not be the same as the pick-up points. I understand having other options to leave the tour, but the pick-ups should remain an option. It turns out the pick-up was at our hotel, and we expected to be returned there. The bus was very comfortable.

    Wonderful day trip
    Katie_I
    , Apr. 2022
    Versailles was incredible, and this trip made the experience so easy. There are many queues and I feel this would have been a bit overwhelming without a tour guide. The queues were quick and although the palace was very busy you were still able to see everything. I highly recommend the free audio guides, we learnt so much. If you have time, also take a trip down to the grand canal and go on the boats or have some ice cream and admire the views up to the palace.

    The Palace and Gardens...

    , Apr. 2022
    The Palace and Gardens were beautiful and a must see. However you can buy tickets and take a taxi for much cheaper and get the exact same experience. Audio guides come free with the tickets.

    Dear costumer, Thank you for your comment and for taking your time to share it. Nevertheless, we would like to inform that our tour counts with a shuttle transfer from Paris to Versailles (from two different meeting points in the city) + the visit of the Versailles Palace, the visit of the Gardens and, of cours, the shuttle transfer from Versailles to Paris. Apart of all these services, our tour counts with a host/ess speaking three languages (French, English and Spanish). Have a nice day, Magic Ways Team

    Great Trip

    , Apr. 2022
    This was a last minute booking for us, we booked this particular tour because the pick up location was close to our hotel in Montmartre. The tours guides were professional and were very helpful. The experience at Versailles was great, we enjoyed the inside and loved finishing the day with at walk in the beautiful gardens. Would recommend the tour.

    Not what expected

    I don't understand why I had to pay for a ticket for my daughter who was free, if it was for transportation I wish it would have stated for transportation and other people thought it was a guided audio tour not a self tour.

    Do not book this one. Guide did not show at the meeting point and they refused a refund. Used the subway to get there and paid for tickets again. Do not book.

    Dear customer, Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion with us. We are sorry that your experience in Versailles was not satisfactory. We can assure that our shuttle has been in the three different meeting points in Paris and our hostess could do the check-in of the other customers. Thank you for your opinion. Kind regards, Magic Ways Team

    Transportation to Palace
    pratik_j
    , Mar. 2022
    I paid $235 for three people which included the entrance tickets. Entrance tickets to the palace includes audio tour regardless. Entrance fee is $18. If you take Uber from downtown it would be $80 return. I would have paid total $140 max so basically I Paid $95 extra. The bus from and back to Paris is just a transportation and nothing else. You get to palace at 11sh and won’t leave till 4:30 to come back. If you do not want to spend that much time there you will be stuck till the bus leaves. Being said that if that’s your cup of tea bus ride to and from there was very prompt , smooth and staff were very polite.

    This is a beautiful vast property. Best recommend to go and stay at least 6 hours. Your group, might not give enough time. It's important to see and feel this wonderful piece of history.
