Версаль шикарный!!! Прекрасное место для посещения!!! Рекумендую!!!

Very organized. Our prebooked tix led us straight to the entrance line where they take your pics for purchase. Concession stand was fast with service. Bathrooms clean. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. Guide was informative. We didn’t go under the Brooklyn bridge which was advertised so that was a lil disappointing cuz I was expecting it. Pier 83 was easy to access from our hotel in Chelsea. We walked from there to Times Square no problem . Love the GetYourGuide app. It had all info I needed before the tour

Habían muuuchas opciones y no me arrepiento de haber seleccionado este!!..El mejor de todas las opciones..Muy completo y tienes 6 horas para poder manejar tu propio tiempo..Muy fácil la compra de los tickets online, muy facil la entrada y la guía..
