Palace of Versailles
The Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles stretches for more than 721,000 square feet and boasts more than 700 rooms. Your audio guide will help you find your way during your visit, tell you about the history of the palace, and immerse you in its unique atmosphere. Your ticket will give you access to the palace's most famous rooms, including the King's Grand Apartment, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.) and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others.  Also see the stunning Hall of Mirrors, a huge room in which guests were received and impressed, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was designed to amaze the Sun King's (Louis XIV) visitors and is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's beautiful gardens.

During this full day tour of Versailles, spend time discovering the gardens of Versailles and admire their artworks (more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds and woodland.

Lovely place. Make sure to take a full day tour because the garden and hamlet are so beautiful.
Wow! We had a wonderful experience! The office was easy to locate (we got a taxi so we would be there in time in the morning), the bus was comfortable, the information was clear, and the agent was very helpful. We loved our audio guides. They come with earbuds, and a sort of stylus that you point at a map. The map is detailed and has descriptions so there is no confusion at what you should be seeing. We went April 1, spring break, but definitely not the rush of summer. We spent 7 hours at Versailles, about 2.5 either in line to get into the palace or in the palace, a half hour for lunch, and probably 4 hours in the gardens or the grand/petit Trianon. We would 100% NOT recommend a half day tour. There is far too much to see and you will feel rushed and that you missed seeing a lot. Wear the right shoes! Versailles is massive, much bigger than you think. We would definitely book with this agency again! Highly recommend!
The Versailles visit was really good. Transport was clean and on time, audio guide was easy to use and worked perfectly. Full day tour is encouraged to really take in and enjoy the views and gardens above all. “Full day” allows enough time to explore the gardens and visit the important sites. Also contracted other tours with them and all of them were up to standard. Have fun in Paris! Greetings from Mexico.
Full day self-guide w/ ticket and audio guide was great... we took our time at areas that interested us. We, had the chance to enjoy the gardens and had lunch at our own pace... the itinerary was also helpful on giving us an estimated time to spend on each area... Highly recommended to those who prefer to enjoy Versailles at their own pace.
There was no tour. Tickets and a bus to get there.
It would be great if we could go as a group and skip the long queue.
It was a leisurely half day tour with pick up at your hotel/apt. Beautiful gardens and Monet’s house with no guide. Admission to house and gardens included. There were only 5 people in our van which was great and driver was nice however he was silent both ways without any descriptions. Would do it again
