Crowded to the hilt. Hot as hell. The greedy management have not controlled how many people they let in here and boy do we all know it! It’s miserable. Spoilt any enjoyment to be gained from the place. Oh and the sandwiches were unbelievably tough....More

It’s a mixed review because the palace and the gardens are beautiful but the organization is a disaster. I would totally avoid it in the summer. Luckily we purchased tickets online. The lines for those who didn’t were huge, hundred of meters long. And on...More

This one is difficult to rate, cause the place itself is wonderfull, however the crowds will totally ruin your experience. And on top of that the the crowds are (in true French style) extremely poorly managed. We got timeslot tickets so we could by-pass the...More

Skip the palace and go straight to the gardens - at least there you can avoid the 100's of tour groups crowded into the palace (in August). We avoided the front line by becoming members for $80 (giving us two free expedited tickets - children...More

Truly amazing. We pre-booked a guided tour of the Palace, the tour guide was friendly, helpful and well informed. Would also recommend pre-booking to jump the queues. The Hall of Mirrors is stunning. The following day we pre-booked tickets to visit the Gardens - entry...More

Hi, 1) yes, if you arrive at 9:00 you will have enough time to enter the palace for a 2:00 pm tour. 2) There is a train that takes you directly to Versaille. You get the tickets right at the station. Use google maps from... More
