What to Expect
Enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Versailles, with skip-the-line entry and round-trip train transfers from Paris, and get access to areas normally closed to the public.

You will spend the morning in the beautiful Royal Gardens, famous for its fountains. Then, enjoy a delicious lunch by the famous grand canal. After lunch, enter the Palace of Versailles through a special side entrance, with absolutely no waiting time. Feel like a royal guest of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette as you are escorted to the other side of the rope.

Explore parts of the chateau that few people have ever seen. Your privileged entrance ticket includes access to historic private rooms, such as Louis XVI’s library, the Royal Dining Hall, Opera House, and luxurious Private Games Room, where Marie Antoinette played cards and entertained guests.

Your guide will provide a fascinating commentary about the history of the chateau and the French monarchy as you tour. While other hallways in the museum are crowded with thousands of tourists, enjoy the serenity of the King and Queen's private residence with no more than 19 other guests.
