The Royal Palace is wonderful, as are the gardens. Unfortunately, a single day is not enough to visit everything. Absolutely poor audio guide, despite being available in Italian. The number of caddies to visit the gardens is also too low in relation to the demand. I would suggest to also include bicycles, ecological and you do not need to show a license. I would increase the refreshment points, the few present are not very tidy and are besieged.

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.
