What to Expect
Hidden away from the modern world, this majestic European castle on the outskirts of Paris is a perfectly preserved example of the reckless extravagance of the French monarchy. Experience life at its most luxurious, in a setting of lush rolling lawns that stretch as far as the eye can see.

On this half-day tour, you’ll skip the lines at the entrance with your pre-booked admission to Versailles. With a maximum of 20 people per group, your Versailles tour will be intimate and unhurried. An English-speaking guide will meet you at Versailles and lead you through the Gardens and Palace.

Marvel at the sheer size of the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most spectacular castles in the world, boasting 700 rooms! See the incredible array of fine art and the intricate designs of the 1,250 fireplaces as you work your way through the palace’s highlights, including the King’s and Queen’s apartments, the Chapel, the Coronation Room, the Hall of Mirrors and the Salon of Abundance.

Head out into the sunlight and visit the manicured gardens, covering an area of 1,800 acres. On Thursdays you’ll enjoy a tour of the gardens and have some free time to explore on your own.

It’s best to book your tour on days other than Thursday, when the famous Versailles Fountain Show or Musical Gardens are running.
