Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A great option for people who don't like big group tours. You get transport and admission and the option to explore Versailles on your own or take a guided tour with a very small group.
Half-Day Tour:Select either a morning or afternoon tour and depart from your Paris hotel bound for Versailles. Your host for the trip will give you recommendations about planning your Versailles visit and provide you with an audio guide for a tour of the palace and gardens. The guide is available in eight languages, so you can explore Versailles without a tour guide.

The half-day tour includes time to see Louis XIV’s Royal Apartments, the apartments of the Dauphin and Dauphine as well as the often-photographed Hall of Mirrors. The duration of the visit at Versailles is roughly two hours.

Full-Day Tour:The full-day experience starts with a 1-hour guided tour of the Palace of Versailles. See the lavish Royal Apartments, the Queen’s Bedroom, the Gallery of Battles and the famous Hall of Mirrors. After the tour, stop for lunch at La Petite Venise restaurant.

Following lunch, head into the expansive gardens of Versailles. On Saturdays and Sundays from April to October, watch a show of the garden’s fountains set to music. Make a brief detour to the Queen’s Hamlet, a private retreat for Marie-Antoinette in the 1780s. Then, join your guide for a 1-hour tour of the Grand Trianon, the private palace retreat for both Louis XV and Louis XVI.

Hotel pick up was on time. There were 7 of us and it was a hot day. We had time to walk around the gardens before our skip the line start time, which was 10am. We actually got into the palace about 10:50 as there were other groups a head of us. Just beware that there are massive amount of people inside the palace all trying to do the same thing, which is take pictures and slowly shuffle along.

They picked us up from our hotel in a nice van. We were seated in back since we were the last pick up. Paris was having record high temperatures and the back of the van did not cool off at all. Because they do not have a lot of hot weather there, no one seems to know how to operate the AC correctly we are from Texas. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable the whole ride there. The palace is beautiful and the audio and headsets were nice. But it was so hot, it was oppressive. There was no way to cool off in any way. I recommend going any other month than July. The palace is stunning, but are thousands of tourists are there with you, so know that going in.

Highly recommend this small group tour to Versailles. You will not be disappointed. To see the grounds and the Palace of the “Sun King” was quite an experience and education in understanding why people revolt when they’ve had enough.

We booked what we thought would be a relaxing afternoon at Versailles. We booked a tour where the driver would pick us up at our hotel. As this was the last day of a busy trip we decided to sleep in a little. Woke up with plenty of time to grab a quick bite from one of the local shops and head back to the hotel to be picked up in the lobby. We waited in the lobby for almost 40 minutes.Called the tour agency and they said that the time had been changed and that they are on time.We were not notified. Had we been we would have enjoyed a much more relaxed morning with a nice lunch at a local brasserie. But not knowing we had extra time we just had a quick sandwich. Not what I would have liked to have had on my last afternoon in Paris. The

I opted for the half day tour without a guide. The driver was great and gave us some valuable information. If you only want an overview of the palace and gardens, this is fine. Several of the group felt as though they were rushed especially those who paid for a personal guide. It was quite crowded, but still amazing to see. As a member of the older generation, I cannot understand spending 99 your time taking pictures which will be mostly unidentifiable later when you could actually use your eyes to take in the opulence. Buy a book with better pictures and text to explain the location and history of each one!

This tour is amazing and our tour guide was fantastic. She picked us up at our hotel in a van, drove to Versailles, gave us time to walk around the gardens for about 45 minutes. Then we got our self-guiding headphones and experienced the beautiful of the Palace before she drove us back to our hotel. On the way to Versailles, she told us the applicable history that helped the visit to be much more meaningful. This is the best!!
