One of the very best in my entire holiday experiences. Very good and friendly service. Everything went very fast. Very nice personel; also through the phone when I booked. Great experience!
Although i have the tickets. i still have to join the long q to get in
This tour stated priority access. When we arrived we queued for half an hour at the short queue which we believed our ticket gave us access too. This is not the case - this ticket saves you time buying a ticket, but then you have to queue for the security check which took another 2 hours in the sun 39 degrees no shade! The only way to access the short queue is to buy a ticket directly from the Palace of Versailles Site and book a set time. Once in the Palace it was absolutely stunning and I am glad we waited. The Palace is breathe taking beautiful and the gardens are magnificent. Allow most of a day to do justice to this. If you are going in the peak season it is very busy. There are food outlets in the gardens - the cafe inside the palace does not allow food or drink to leave its premises and seating is limited with people sitting on the floor!
Our visit was on Sept. 7th and I wish we purchased a guided tour instead of just admission. You can purchase this ticket but it will only give you admission with an audio headset. The line for security is 2-hours. We thought we got there early and there was already a very long queue, as we waited the line doubled in size. If your ticket says enter at Gate A you will have to wait hours. I'm sure they do this for crowd control. PURCHASE A GUIDED TOUR if you really want to skip this line. All the guided tours went through Gate B and because they had separate security there was no wait! In this case I would urge you to spend the additional money for GATE B entry with a tour group to avoid hours in the hot sun on the cobblestone courtyard with people trying to jump the line. No bathrooms and no place to sit. It was not pleasant and I would have paid the additional cost of a guide had I known! We were exhausted by the time we finally got in and went right to Angelina restaurant and had a wonderful lunch! If you purchase a guided tour with lunch at one of the restaurants it will be money well spent. Viator offers many guided tour packages, buy one and bypass the wasted time in line!
Even if you have an entrance ticket you will not save much time waiting in the 2nd line. There are 2 lines to get through to get in and the longest is not the ticket office at the palais. So be prepared even with tickets to still wait over 1-2 hours to get in. The palais is constantly crowded all day long so it's just the nature of the visit which makes it long to access and not the tickets per say. I saw lines all day long to get in so I'm not sure the time of day makes a difference as some have suggested.
It was great to have the tickets prior to getting to Versaille, but I made the mistake of thinking it was Skip the Line tickets. We did need to stand in the hot sun for 1 1/2 hours to get in. So, my advice is to get the Skip The Line tickets.
