Overview

Enjoy skip-the-line access to the Palace of Versailles to avoid the often-long queues. Explore the opulent palace and expansive gardens, and — in the summer — take in the optional Versailles Fountain Show. This is a great way to see this must-see attraction outside Paris.
  • Versailles guided tour from Paris
  • Great Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and the Queens Apartments
  • Free time to explore the famous gardens
  • Option to include the summertime fountain show
  • Guide-interpreter or audio guided tour
  • Book ahead and skip the long lines
The first part of your Versailles experience is a guided tour of the palace. During the visit, you’ll see the incredible Royal Apartments where the King and Queen — Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette — once lived and the famous Hall of Mirrors.

Then, enjoy some free time in the gardens to wander through the impeccable ‘Groves’ in summer or to bundle up for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride in winter. Admission tickets are included if you would like to visit the Gallery of Battles at your leisure.

Take a midday break for lunch at La Petite Venise, a restaurant in the gardens facing the Grand Canal.

After your meal, take a guided visit of the Trianons, the private retreat of both Louis XV and Louis XVI. Then head for the Queen’s Hamlet, Marie Antoinette’s similarly private retreat.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:On Saturdays and Sundays from April to October and Tuesdays from mid-May through June the impressive fountains in Versailles’ garden are made even more so with a display set to music that dates from the time of Louis XIV’s court. Entry fees to the special fountain show are included with this tour.

We had a wonderful time at Versailles. This tour was the highlight of our entire 3 city european trip. I highly recommend picking this option mainly because of the wonderful lunch we had in the garden restaurant. 5 star meal with a jug of wine on the table to make the second half of the tour more enjoyable : our guide was very informative and gave us plenty of free time to roam on our own. I can't wait to come back in the summer time!!!

I liked the Versailles tour, but would rather do a private tour. If not for a tall person in my group I would have lost the tour group several times because our guide had no flag. It was a large group, and hard to ask any questions because we were moved so quickly from one room to the next.

We both enjoyed our tour very much. Our tour guide was pleasant and knowledgable. We did the entire day and we both would recommend it over the half day. Our lunch was relaxing and gave us a chance to socialize with our other tour members. Delightfully, the food was very good.

Belen was a most outstanding guide for us! Our tour of the Louvre and Orsay museums were the high point of our 3 week trip. A most memorable experience! Thanks again -

Guide was not as proficient in English thus it detracted from experience. Should include transportation from Gardens to Little Trianon and then to bus. Extensive walking so not recommended for persons having difficulty walking or standing for 7+ hours.

Guide was nice but not clear and didn't really make the tour come alive in any way. Then for some (probably financial reason) we were joined by Spanish speaking tourists after lunch so our guide had to speak in both Spanish and Eng. Not what we paid for. Very average. Wouldn't recommend.

For those never having previously been to Versailles this was a wonderful tour. The guide was kind and very informative. Having been there four times previous, I got to see far more on this specific tour than any other. I highly recommend the tour and the guide.

Very long day and unexpected long distances to walk. Recommend stressing proper foot wear. We had comfortable shoes but I heard grumblings from others. Guide was well versed although in a 'rush'. Restaurant meal was wonderful.

Knowing the castle and principal gardens its a good experience. The tour through the Trianons although a nice place to be, I would have prefer using that time to go to Giverny which is nearby to see the gardens that inspired Claude Monet's paintings.
