What to expect

There is a certain magic that fizzes through the air in the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Hidden away from the modern world, this majestic European castle on the outskirts of Paris is a perfectly preserved example of the reckless extravagance of the French monarchy. This is Paris life at its most luxurious and just as you imagined it with gold brushed furniture, quilted four-poster beds and lush rolling lawns that stretch as far as the eye can see.

You’ll meet your guide in Versailles where they’ll begin a tour of the Gardens and Palace of Versailles. With a maximum of 25 people per group, your tour of Versailles will be intimate, unhurried and enjoyable. We'll skip-the-line via pre-booked entrance to Versailles and your guide will lead you from one marvelous room to the next, pointing out where Louis XIV tormented his friends and family with long, boring ceremonies and where it was that Marie Antoinette ate her cake.

Marvel at the sheer size of the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most beautiful castles in the world with a whopping 700 rooms. Peruse its incredible array of fine art and the intricate design of its 1250 fireplaces as you work your way through the highlights of the castle including the King and Queen’s apartments, the Chapel, the Coronation Room, the Hall of Mirrors and the Salon of Abundance – how many residences can boast one of those? This list of rooms your guide will show you goes on and on, each one an entirely different and unique experience from the Peace Room to the Queen’s bedchamber. And just when you think that you have seen all that the Palace of Versailles has to offer, you’ll burst into the sunlight and encounter its dazzling manicured gardens, over 1,800 acres in size.

The Versailles fountain show is a wonderful musical event held in the exclusive groves, designed by André Le Nôtre, where the fountains explode to the sounds of a cello. Take some more time to experience the gardens on your own, wandering their beautiful groves and lawns. At the end of your tour, you’ll have time to reflect on a day of pure indulgence and to slowly drag yourself back through the centuries, to modern-day Paris.
