What to expect

Enjoy a visit to the Chateau de Versailles with this guided tour including skip-the-line tickets and roundtrip transportation from Paris.

Set off from our agency in central Paris for the Palace of Versailles and make the most of the 45-minute journey by coach listening to your guide’s introduction to the history of the palace.

Once arrived, follow your guide straight to the front of the line and visit the King’s Grand Apartments and the Queen’s Grand Apartments including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom. Admire the spectacular Hall of Mirrors, a unique room in which guests were received. Almost 240 feet long, it was created to dazzle visitors to the Sun King, Louis XIV. It is lit by 17 windows and some 350 mirrors and overlooks the palace’s breath-taking gardens, the second part of your visit.

After your tour of the Palace, explore the stunning French-style gardens at your own pace. In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned André Le Notre to lay out the gardens and grounds, something that was just as important as the construction of the palace in the king's eyes. Enjoy your free time strolling through the Gardens of Versailles and admire the 386 works of art (including more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds, and trees. During the summer months, a range of activities are organized, such as the Grandes Eaux Musicales, when the fountains are made to dance to music.

You will be back to our agency in Paris at around 12.45 pm.
