What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Versailles Palace and Marie-Antoinette's Petit Trianon from Paris

Explore the Gardens of Versailles during your half-day tour

Versailles takes the cake when it comes to over-the-top palaces of Europe. Your tour of the famed royal residence begins in central Paris, where you’ll board a coach for the scenic, 30-minute drive to Versailles.

For your first stop, visit the Queen’s Hamlet — the personal playground of Marie Antoinette. See the astonishing full-scale replica of a Normandy village and working farm that she commissioned as a countryside escape from the pressures of palace life. Visit Petit Trianon, a neoclassical château gifted to Marie Antoinette by King Louis XVI as her personal residence and retreat.

Continue on to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Palace of Versailles, where you’ll breeze past the long queues with your skip-the-line ticket. Learn about the 17th-century palace’s history and hear tales of elaborate court customs as you walk through the shimmering Hall of Mirrors, sumptuous royal apartments and ornate chapel.

After your palace tour, take a stroll through the famed Versailles Gardens. Covering nearly 2,000 acres (809 hectares), the stunning Baroque-style gardens feature elaborate hedge mazes and fantastical sculptured fountains. Enjoy leisure time here before reconnecting with your guide for the return drive to Paris, where you’ll be dropped off in the early evening.

This was one of the best tours we attended while in France. We could have not asked for a better tour guide. As promised we were able to skip the lines and with our guides knowledge and experience, stayed apart from the thousands of tourists. A most pleasant experience. We will definitely use Viator again.

Tour guide was very knowledgable and spoke great English. She answered a lot of questions but kept the tour moving. Versailles is a not to be missed location if you are in or near Paris.

Maeva was a fantastic tour guide. She is as fun as she is up on her history of France. The palace and gardens were amazing. After seeing that place, you can see why the revolution happened.

We love this tour. Only six of us and our guide Roseanne was very gentle and patient with us and managed to keep us together and provide valuable insights and information. We loved the small group experience after several days of large group experiences.

Excellent tour. I loved seeing the Petite Trianon, it's really quite beautiful. This psrt of the trip was not guided, but really did not need to be. Once we got to Versailles we received a guided which was great! Maeve, who was our guide for the whole trip was fun, funny and made sure we had a good time. She was also very knowledgeable. We had a really good time and saw many wonderful things.
