What to expect

Traveling to Versailles from Paris has never been easier! All you need to do is to be in time for a meeting with your expert guide at a central Paris train station, and the rest, including tickets, needful info, and orientation, will be properly taken care of. Take advantage of this tour and explore the incredible Palace and Gardens, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fulfilled and ready for new adventures, you will get back to Paris early afternoon with plenty of daylight to explore some other of the Parisian gems!

As you stroll through Versailles' beautiful Royal Gardens, your enthusiastic and expert guide will offer you a thorough orientation to the gardens and palace grounds. You will learn about the French formal style and see for yourself the hidden treasure that many visitors miss. After this, you will by-pass the long lines and be given immediate access to the Chateau. An audio guide is provided so the guests could explore at their own pace the famous palace rooms, including the famous Hall of Mirrors, where King Louis greeted guests, and centuries later the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end World War I. You will also see the room where Marie Antionette's guards were murdered as they protected her from the mob at the beginning of the Revolution. The flexibility of this tour means you can return to Paris in your own time, allowing for another activity in the afternoon or a longer visit of Versailles!
