What You Can Expect

Versailles Independent Tour from Paris

Discover the Hall of Mirrors

Begin your 4-hour tour of the Palace of Versailles with pickup at a central Paris location (Metro Pyramides). Board a comfortable tour vehicle to the French landmark, located about 13 miles (22 km) outside of Paris. 

During the relaxing ride, listen to recorded audio commentary that will introduce you to the history, art, and architecture of the palace. Commentary is available in English, French, Mandarin, Danish, Japanese, Greek, Russian, Arabic, Korean, Swedish, Dutch, Portugues, Italian, German, and Spanish. Learn about the origin of the palace, built under orders of King Louis XIX in 1661. Famous architects and decorators, including Le Notre, Mansart, and Le Vau worked together to construct this opulent building. The palace became one of the most prestigious residences in Europe, and its splendor is still on display for visitors today. 

Once you arrive on the premises, you'll be equipped with the knowledge to spend a few hours on a self-guided tour. Explore the palace, the gardens, and the Grand Royal Apartments, which are all included in your entrance fees (except during Fountain Display and Musical Gardens’ days, entrance fees to the gardens are not included).

Afterward, relax on the return trip to central Paris, where you'll be dropped off at your original departure point.

Shorter 4 hour tour, which worked for teenagers. Audio, self paced was good. Given how quickly we moved through one section, I think they could have added additional audio tour to the time spent there.

Did the 1/2 day tour which excluded the gardens. Being part of a group tour, was able to bypass long lines. Was given audio pen with map and then able to explore on my own at my own pace. Perfect!!
