The tour is perfect for those who prefer to explore independently. Discover the dazzling royal residence of Versailles, the largest and most sumptuous ever built by a reigning monarch and surrounded by gardens and parklands. Transfers from Paris, entrance fees to the gardens, Versailles and the Grand Royal Apartments are included.
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.
This was a perfect day.
The start was delayed due to a strike but the guide kept us informed. The palace and garden is a must see
Very good, but too short, we decided to stay longer. Versailles is amazing, must do!
We left Paris on time. Our guide is really efficient and see us through until the bag-scanning area. This is must trip for everyone traveling to Paris. The chateu is really awesome... be fascinated.

Well worth a visit. A good idea to spend the day there, unfortunately we did not have the time!
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.
Enjoyed the tour through the Palace, viewing the art work.
highly recommended if u r visting paris
This tour was amazing!
