Cette excursion vous permet d'optimiser votre séjour à Versailles avec une visite de 5 heures dans le domaine de Versailles
Le Château de Versailles figure sur la liste du patrimoine mondial de l'Unesco depuis 30 ans et est l'une des plus belles œuvres d'art français du XVIIIe siècle. Le site a commencé comme pavillon de chasse de Louis XIII avant que son fils Louis XIV le transforme et l'agrandisse, déplaçant la cour et le gouvernement de la France à Versailles en 1682. Chacun des trois rois français qui y vécurent jusqu'à la Révolution française a ajouté des améliorations pour le rendre encore plus beau.
Depuis la fenêtre centrale de la Galerie des glaces, regardez en bas vers la grande perspective qui mène le regard depuis les parterres d'eau jusqu'à l'horizon. Cette perspective originale, qui a précédé le règne de Louis XIV, a été développée et prolongée par le paysagiste André le Nôtre en élargissant le chemin royal et en creusant le Grand Canal. Cette vaste perspective s'étend de la façade du Château de Versailles jusqu'aux grilles du parc.

Jean Michel, our guide, is a very nice man who speaks three languages and was sweet, but that's the only good aspect. The tour company itself is a mess. They almost sent the bus to the wrong pick up location, because they printed the address wrong online versus the ticket. I had to call three different numbers on behalf of our WHOLE tour group, because no one at the location (it's in front of a similar travel agency - confusing!) had any clue what we were talking about, to finally get a hold of a woman who insisted they hadn't made a mistake until I said we literally had 15 people waiting, and then she finally gave in and said "we will send the bus to your second stop." Then, it was hectic and took forever to get everyone on the bus, and we were late to arriving to Versailles, so our tours were very rushed and we had hardly any time to explore. The skip the line for a group was worth it to get in quicker, but that's it. We separated from the group to go on our own self guided tour, because it was better. Jean Michel was nice and said sure. The bus picking us up was late, too. Don't recommend this company.
Very disorganized. Not a guided tour. Still had to wait several minutes to skip the line. Gave way too much time for tour and unable to contact anyone with the company. Please do not use any tour services with Magic Ways.
The tour was absolutely breathtaking, Versailles is a beautiful preserved Masterpiece of architectural genius, the gardens were beautiful ,and the transformation in the place of the Monarch's, to the Napoleon era, was fantastic. I really enjoyed seeing one of my lifelong dreams.
There were too many people in both the palace and gardens for this to be enjoyable. Also. The guide was unfriendly and lacked empathy. The palace was still an amazing place.
People were nice but the tour was disappointing. Needed some more directions. Fountain was only on when we got there then 4 hours later so missed seeing it plus due to an event transportation wasn’t available back to the end of the garden. Ended up taking the train back 2 hours early. It was a waste of money for us.
Extremely Crowded - the crowd literally pushes you along every room - Could not enjoy - Waste of money
Unfortunately,my mom and I had an awful experience on this tour.First,the bus was an hour late to pick us up,and we had to wait on a street corner in the cold rain until it came.Then,when it arrived two people came out and started hading us maps and asking us to check in on a clip board.Neither of them introduced themselves or apologized for being incredibly late.When my mom pointed this out to them, they replied in a somewhat snarky way "we were waiting too!".Which was true, but they were sitting on a heated coach,while we were standing in the cold.The driver of the coach was not good.The drive was rocky and we kept being lurched back and forth.On the bus the two who were apparently in charge told us hardly anything about what to expect or about what the plan was. When we got to Versailles they told us when and where to meet,but they told us this three different times,and each time they told us the meeting location and time was different.Then,we walked up to the "Skip the Line" Entrance.There,they did a very bad job of keeping us together. They didn't have anything that would help distinguish themselves from the crowd,and therefore it was very hard to find them. While we were waiting there happened to be a medical emergency in a different group in front of us that delayed us quite a bit.Of course,this was not their fault,but when they were walking us to a different entrance point,they lost two people in our group who ended up having to pay for additional tickets to get in since they had been separated from us.Once inside we had to wait,and they didn't tell us what we were waiting for.Once we were given headsets they said "have fun!" and left.There was no instructions as to how to use the headset,any advice for navigating the palace,or anything like that.We were just left to our own devices.This was quite a shock to me because I was under the impression that this was a guided tour - guided by a human.After visiting the palace itself,which was not the best experience overall because of the lack of information we were receiving and the enormous crowds,we got back on the bus with the 45+ other people in our group.One of the two leaders started counting heads after the bus started to leave.No one asked how it went,if we enjoyed it,or what could have made the experience better.When we got off the bus,neither of the leaders said anything to us.They seemed like this was the first tour they had ever lead and like they did not enjoy being there. It was despicable.
The tour guides were disorganized. They didn't own their own bus. They contracted the bus and were at the mercy of the contractor. Upon arrival in Versailles, we were told to form two lines, then three lines, one line, and then finally two lines. Once we got into the Versailles, the guide didn't give us a clear instruction. We're pretty much on our own and expected to meet at the point prior to heading back to Paris. Choose other tour provider with better ratings if you want a finer experience. Not recommended at all.
The Palace was beautiful and we had a wonderful day exploring, taking pictures, and making memories. However, I would have liked more time to enjoy the gardens. Perhaps in the future, I will book a longer day trip.
Versailles is absolutely beautiful, amazing place to visit, however, unfortunately, because this particular tour/ company, (the bus was late almost 1 hour and the pickup location was wrong), we didn’t have enough time to see and explore the Palace gardens, and when we asked the tour guide the possibility to stay a little longer in Versailles, since they were late and the tour was 1 hour behind the scheduled, they refused to do it, saying that there was no time, however, as soon as we jump in the bus back to Paris, the tour guide started to ask, (more than 6 times the same question), if someone was interested in visiting the museum of the perfume. Conclusion, the company is completely unprofessional, they refused to stay longer in Versailles, even though the tour was late, saying there was no time, but they had plenty time to go to the museum of the perfume, which didn’t happen since no one, including myself, were interested. I believe this company somehow makes money if they take tourists to the museum of the perfume. I DON’T recommend this tour.
Our tour bus was an hour late for pickup (earlier passengers said the bus drove in circles). When I called to find out which bus line to look for, I was told the guides would be wearing red jackets, but was not given bus details. Once we arrived at Versailles, we were caught in a stoppage due to a severe medical emergency. Obviously not the tour company’s fault, but had they been even close to on time, we would have avoided it. And because the guide kept shuffling us around (and didn’t carry a marker as you would expect of a guide) one couple was lost in the fray and did not receive their entry tickets, having to pay for two more tickets to get in. Our departure was extended one hour, but that in turn impacted our dinner plans. Versailles was great, but the tour company was so disorganized and unprofessional.
Nice tour bus to site and good guide. this was our first visit to Paris and surrounding areas, and a lot of people trying to get in, so I would highly recommend a skip the line option! We explored the gardens first and they are amazing, tranquil and spread out. We only had about 2 hours in the garden and did not have enough time to explore all sides. We wanted more garden time, and we made it down to the Marie Antionette estate, which we did not know was a separate admission. Had lunch at the garden midpoint between the two estates and surprisingly not busy. The palace interior tour was a mess of people all the way through and not sure how long that can continue since you can see the effects of all the foot traffic on wood and stone floors. Information can be overwhelming and might recommend some advance study before your first trip. We used head phones were helpful in explaining much of the details of all the rooms. The history itself is amazing and it was good to have some fellow tour faces in massive crowds of people.
Very good to skip the huge lines to enter the Palace and see it at your own pace.
Great day! Wear comfy clothings and shoes, watch the weather before you go!
Very organized. Our tour guide was great and it was nice not to have to worry about getting out to the palace. Also nice to have tickets already, although the security line was fairly long. Plenty of time to tour the house and gardens. Such an amazing place - definitely worth the trip!
