Full description
Meet your guide in central Paris and enjoy a short, escorted train ride to Versailles. On arrival, start a journey in the footsteps of the kings and queens of France. During the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, Versailles was the place to be and to be seen. Nowadays visitors from all over the world still come to Versailles to marvel at the splendors of this incredible palace. Your skip-the-line access allows you to bypass the long lines that form each day, and your friendly local guide will steer you expertly through the crowds, bringing the famous figures who once inhabited this palace back to life, and making sure you don’t miss a thing.

After visiting the royal apartments inside the palace, your guide will lead you through the spectacular gardens, once the setting of balls, parties and elaborate firework displays. On fountain show days you will see the amazing waterworks, still running today as they did in the times of kings and queens.

After your tour, dine like a king at the sumptuous new restaurant Ore, recently opened in the spectacular 18th century salons at the Chateau of Versailles by renowned chef Alain Ducasse. Savor a delicious gourmet lunch and discover fine French cuisine.
