You will also be given time to explore the manicured gardens "à la française", which mirrors the splendor of the interior.
Designed by the French landscaper André Le Nôtre in 1661 for the King Louis XIV, the 2,000-acre park is an architectural expanse of perspectives, parterres, fountains and groves that since its inception has defined what a French garden should be.

Skip the line tickets are worth the extra money. We went on a Sunday, and it was crazy busy. The Palace was grand and filled with over the top elegance. I would recommend seeing the gardens first as they were the highlight of the Palace. Then, with your time remaining, view the Palace.

The team was professional, curious, and clear with instructions. It's only 4 stars as you only get 2 hours at Versailles and that's not enough time. It you plan to see everything then book a longer trip.

Excellent way to see Versailles. Transportation and ease of entry with helpful staff and small group

The palace of Versailles was awesome, so much history to see! However, the tour was a little lacking. By the time we got to the palace and stood in line, we only had 2 hours to see everything. We had to speedwalk through the palace, taking pictures and video so we could take our time and review them later. By the time we finished the Palace and stopped by the bathroom, there was no time left to see the garden. Having at least another 3 hours in the tour would have been awesome! The driver was good.

The tour was really lovely, full of beauty and history. On hindsight, however, I'd choose the daylong tour instead because a couple of hours just isn't enough to take it all in. Overall, an amazing experience.
