The tour begins when you climb aboard our air-conditioned coach at our office in the heart of Paris. Discover the neighborhoods of western Paris before taking the highway to the Palace of Versailles. The trip takes around 45 minutes. During the drive, your guide will give you an initial overview of Versailles.

The visit begins in the gardens designed by André Le Nôtre. Follow your guide through the groves and admire the famous Musical Fountains. Discover the fountains designed by the best in the field, including the famous Italian family, the Francinis, and the extraordinary sculptures brought to life by the Marsy brothers: the recently restored Latona Fountain, the Ballroom and rock garden, and the Apollo Fountain. The show is accompanied by baroque music, plunging you into the royal era of the Palace of Versailles.

The tour continues with a guided visit through the Palace of Versailles. Priority access allows you to quickly gain entrance to the Palace. Your guide can show you the most beautiful rooms, including the Hercules and Mercury rooms — the latter features a bed and clock gifted to King Louis XIV — and the King’s chambers. You'll also have the chance to visit the must-see Hall of Mirrors. The majestic decor will blow you away! It was once used as a reception room, and features 350 mirrors and 17 windows overlooking the Palace’s magnificent gardens.

    Tour guide was very knowledgable
    4/5
    "Excellent, comprehensive tour. Tour guide was great, lots of knowledge and funny kept things interesting. The only downside was it was too fast paced. No time to stop and sit down to enjoy the gardens, not even a stop for a cold drink or souvenir, afternoon snack or even a toilet stop at the end. We took water bottles but by the end of a very hot day they were warm and empty and we needed another drink but weren’t able to get one as there was not a spare minute so I would recommend the tour be extended for at least another half hour minimum to allow 15 minutes to sit in the garden and observe the surroundings and another 15 mins at the end for a drink or souvenir. Not recommended for the elderly, too fast for them to keep up. Otherwise a great tour!"

    "This was a great excursion to the Palace. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and good humoured and kept a good pace which enabled the group to see most of the grounds and the palace. The afternoon tour is great if you're not a morning person! :-)"
