What You Can Expect

Versailles Independent Tour

Discover the Hall of Mirrors

In 1661, following Louis 14th orders, building started on what became the most prestigious residence amongst all the courts of Europe. The palace and gardens were designed by architects and decorators who are still famous today, such as Le Vau, Mansart and Le Notre.

During the coach drive to Versailles, you will be offered an audio commentary (available in French, English, Spanish, Germany, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Korean, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Japanese, Danish and Chinese-Mandarin) describing the various facets of court life under the reign of Louis 14th, the "Sun King". It will help you through the unguided visit to the Chateau and the gardens.

Very nice.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Very accommodating to our needs and answering all our questions. It was a self guided tour so we were on our own. We did the 8am tour and very happy we did because the 12 noon looked very crowded. We went mid July.
