We had a tour of the palace, then some time to have dinner in the City of Versailles, and then went back to the Palace Garden for the Musical Fountains show and Fireworks. There is a lot of walking so save your energy.
The RER C is an easy way to go / return.

We had a wonderful time. We missed the meeting place. When we called they were happy to arrange a meetup at the palace. Our guide got us right in and found the best spots inside to tell us anout each room. She was delightful and knowledgeable.

Clothilde was an excellent guide...she was humorous, knowledgeable, fiercely protective of the group's space to ensure all of us had good views of the exhibits. The tour is a bit short as it does not cover the Queen's apartment and Trianon. The group size was at the maximum 30 people but Clothilde ensured that all questions were answered.
