The facilities as presented were just outstanding!! My audio download did not work-don’t know if more due to me not being tech-savvy or the house Wi-Fi. But I would suggest having techs available to assist those using their own systems. It was a very hot day and my other suggestion would be to have shade cover w/chair areas on days like this. Along with the shade lots of cold bottled water if sold would go a long way to support the maintenance costs of the facility. As it was we made the best of the day and found shade & water while immensely enjoying the tour.

Everything was super well organised, from the point of departure to the whole organization in Versailles. Everything was explained very well with regard to the ticket, audio guide, gardens, departure point... On request, everything was explained again until everyone understood and heard it. Our bus was packed to capacity which wasn't a problem as we had 3 people with us. The bus ride was great, a sightseeing tour there and back. We were also accompanied by a supervisor on the return trip, which was super pleasant. Anytime again without a second thought.

The Palace of Versailles is truly an experience. Very magnificent rooms and a beautiful garden. It was a bit of a shame that the fountains were only turned on 3 times a day for 45 minutes. In our time window, most fountains were only switched on from 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. With the vastness of the park, it is hopeless to see everything. Furthermore, it was also very crowded. Unfortunately, there is also a lack of seating and when it's warm, you should definitely think about drinking enough, because there are hardly any opportunities to get something on the sunny area. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether they want to book a transfer. The provider only takes you to the normal main entrance and gives you three tickets. If you had traveled there yourself and bought the tickets individually, you would have gotten much cheaper.
