I very much enjoyed my day trip to Chantilly. Your friends might consider it as well.

I took the train from Gare du Nord. I believe that you can also reach Chantilly via the RER from Chatelet-Les Halles.

After arriving, I walked from the station through the town to the lovely Chateau - It is much smaller than Versailles which made it easier to see and digest (although you will see significant art collection that I think eclipses that of Versailles). I also loved wandering through the nearby park. A perfect place for a picnic lunch.

If your friends are fans of horses, Chantilly contains the terrific Musée Vivant du Cheval (Living Horse Museum) -

I am jealous of your friends' visit. Paris in spring is about as good as it gets.
