I enjoyed learning the history and commentary about life in the palace and the political implications. I was a little disappointed because there was no tour of the gardens or the cottage. Tickets for the cottage were included but we had to walk there on our own and by the time we got there they wouldn't let us in. Closes at 6 and it was 3 mins past 5 which was the cut off. I am feeling a little ripped because of that, I paid to see the cottage Pavilion and didn't get to.

Good morning from Greece! A few months ago, I booked through my agency in Greece a visit at the Versailles with skip the line (priority access) included for me and my husband. I had specifically asked and thought that Ι got a visit at the Versailles with guide, not whole of course but a big part of it, and access to the fountain show, to the gardens and to petit and grand trianon. What we got was a small tour at the palace maybe 10 rooms, a stood up, the tour didn’t start on time because you had the rendezvous point only in French written and the guide was late. At the end of the tour, the guide told us that there is no time for the petit and gran trianon (with a bad manner!) you should visit only the gardens. We tried to enter the gardens and the security told us that they close up early and all the agencies have been informed, because of the fountain show, we had the tickets for the gardens, but the tour for the palace had started 45 minutes later. What is the point to pay a skip the line ticket if you lose time. The people with no skip the line ticket entered the palace earlier than us. We try to get to the fountain show and the told us the we had to pay extra! The highlight of our experience was the remark from the tour guide: if you wanted to see everything you should take the morning tour! As if we know! So you sell something that is not possible to achieve? And when someone is asking for a whole visit you do not inform him that this is not possible to the afternoon tour and that everything closes at 5 pm especially when they have the fountain show!

We were lost on the way to the tour and called, texted and emailed La Vacanza Travel for help. The woman who finally answered the phone told us “too bad” and “next time be on time.” She did not offer any help or communicate any concern at all. Nor did we receive any response to our email begging for some accommodation. Very disappointing and a turn off to ever using La Vacanza Travel again. We have been a valued customer for years, but no more.

We had to cancel our trip due to covid May 2020. I received refunds from all but this company. I must have sent over 2 dozen emails trying to get a response. Then finally, they responded they issued a refund to my credit card in January. After checking every credit card I had used for our canceled Paris Trip, no refunds were issued. I notified them of this and the fact that I used Paypal and not a credit card, and they have not responded at all in the last 3 months since.
