What to expect

There is a certain magic that fizzes through the air at 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. Thanks to your pre-booked entrance to Versailles, you'll skip the queues and head into the palace with your guide to explore each stunning room and the history it holds. Prepare to marvel at the sheer size of the Palace of Versailles as you work your way through the highlights of the castle, checking out the Chapel, the Hall of Mirrors and more before moving outside into the gardens. Boasting over 1,800 acres, these spectacular, manicured gardens are well worth a visit!

If you want to make your visit to Versailles extra special, book your visit on one of the days that the famous Versailles Fountain Show or Musical Gardens is running (check the dates in the When section). The Versailles Fountain Show is a wonderful musical event held in the exclusive groves, designed by André Le Nôtre. Watch fountains erupt to the sounds of a cello at the Fountain Show or just be enchanted by the simple beauty of classical music played in beautiful surroundings during the Musical Gardens event.
