We checked in at the office without problem. (There is a small pastry and sandwich shop across the road, so we grabbed a quick delicious sandwich to eat before the trip. There are no toilet facilities at the office, although there is a small public toilet just outside. There was also an opportunity to use the washrooms before the start of the tour. We had a very interesting tour of the Palace. Entry was quick and efficient. The guide (Isabella, I think) was very informative and made the tour fun. We enjoyed in immensely and would recommend the guided tour over the audio tour. We had a quick cup of coffee and tea before our return to town. We did want to do the gardens, but as it was in winter, we decided to leave it for another trip.

My wife and I went on the tour and had an amazing time. Our guide, Gabriella, was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming. The transportation was provided to and from Paris in a large bus, comfortable and clean. If you use the provided shuttle back to Paris, you might not have enough time to take FULL advantage of the gardens, but there is plenty of time to walk down the main path. I recommend going to the end and grab some coffee and snacks.

The guide was as advertised. We have been transported with a nice bus to Palace of Versailles. During the trip we had all information delivered and questions answered. The guide during our visit (Isabelle) was very nice and helpful. We had enough time to visit all that we wanted and also as promised we were transported back to the meeting point. Thank you all, we had a great time.
