Full description

Walk in the footsteps of the “Sun King”, Louis XIV, on a guided tour of his opulent residence, the Palace of Versailles. You will also visit the château of Petit Trianon, located on the grounds of the Palace, which was once the private retreat of Marie Antoinette.

Skip the long lines with your priority access ticket and discover the opulence, beauty, and history of the Palace of Versailles on a guided tour. During the 90-minute tour of the main palace, see King and Queen's State Apartments, the King's Bedroom, and the emblematic Hall of Mirrors.

Learn about the main figures of the French monarchy throughout the centuries. Hear about the fascinating historical events that took place in many of the palace’s rooms.

Then, step out into the lush gardens surrounding the palace. Enjoy a guided tour through the beautiful grounds and feel like a member of past royalty as you marvel at the gardens' grandeur, bronze statues, and ornamental basins accompanied by rows of large trees.

Afterward, meet up with your guide and visit Marie Antoinette’s private estate of the Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon, and the Queen's Hamlet. Explore the building which was designed for her to escape from her royal duties. Learn about her private life away from the pomp and ceremony of the Palace.

I thoroughly enjoyed this your. It covers a lot of ground and is quite a long day. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes! Gabriella, our guide, was amazing. Her knowledge is phenomenal and she made the tour interesting and fun. It rained a little on our tour and although you’re told no umbrellas , people with the little fold up handbag size ones were allowed to take them through security.

Versaillle tour was excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed my trip there. Although it was very long. Our guide was a true historian and truly new her facts. She made sure that after the after lunch break everyone was present. It was very hot and she checked in with us to see how we were doing periodically. Loved it.

Fantastic experience with money well spent for a full-day tour with a guide all the way. Our guide spoke perfect English, and knew everything worth knowing.. and then some ;-) On the full-day tour, you should be aware that there are no tables, benches or other opportunities to sit down and eat your lunch outside - only a courtyard with gravel. To eat in the restaurant, you must have booked a table in advance. A minor detail - but good to know when you are away all day.
