Rip off, is not too strong. There was no beat the queue, the entry is free on a Sunday and the audio free too! Zero point in paying for a ticket. WHY did you charge for this?

So FAST TRACK (Skip the line etc) only works in the summer per a Versailles employee. Major let down, waited in line for 30 + minutes, on their FREE day, double disappointed. So just buy the regular tickets from the actual venue.

Useless Tickets

The actual palace is absolutely gorgeous and well worth seeing. But these tickets are worthless. They claim to “skip the line”, but they really just allow you to skip the nonexistent line to buy a ticket. You still are required to stand in an 1.5+ hour line to enter the palace. Also, any ticket will allow you to get an audioguide (in your preferred language) as they just hand them out like free candy.

Worth the Visit!

We went on a Sunday, even after seeing online that weekends are the busiest as you can imagine. Having a ticket doesnt mean you will get in, because about thousands of other people do too. I planned to go after a garden tour, which is less restriction than the inside of the palace. I planned to go in the last hour it was open and by then the crowd died and there wasnt a real waiting time, so it was perfect!

Versailles Must Be Seen

When you visit Versailles expect lines and crowds. Security only had one station which slowed the line. But go knowing this and you will a great visit. Definitely use the Audio. Each room is described and how it was used. Adds greatly to the experience, We took the RER train from Paris for about $15.00 round trip.

Versailles was awesome

Versailles was great. The online tickets aren’t really worth it though unless you get the timed entry. We got our tickets online and still had to wait two hours in a line to get in. When I went into the building where the ticket sales are in order to use the facilities, there was no one in line.

Terrible. - waste of time and money

What a joke. I arrived at opening time 9a.m. on Sunday and there was a 3 1/2 hour line to get in. I asked the guard if this was usual and he said yes, every Saturday & Sunday. He gave me a tip - for 10 Euro more, I could get a tour and skip the line. I tried, but they were sold out. I tried to get a refund and there were no refunds. This wait should have been mentioned somewhere prior to booking. I wasted half a day in Paris getting there and back and waiting and it was a complete waste of time.
