What You Can Expect

Versailles Small-Group Tour from Paris with Audio Guide

Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This was on our list of places to see when my wife flew over for her vacation. We were picked up at our hotel on time, there were 8 in our group, our guide was able to easily speak 3 languages to talk to all of us. Easy admittance into Versailles, we did the morning half day and had a few hours to wander around. Inside Versailles we had plenty of time to visit all open areas with time for heading outside to see the grounds. Our tour guide was wonderfully prepared to answer questions. Was able to see The Petite Statue of Liberty on our way back to the hotel.

Wally was wonderful. You are really short-changing yourself if you only do a half day to see the palace. It is the second half beyond the main structure where you get to understand the scale of everything. I highly recommend that you take the time to see the grounds, Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon.

It was a great experience, I learn a lot from the tour guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

A good quick tour. Driver gave a lot of information and was very informative. We had our own time. Audio guide was ok but if you haven't been before would make you spend a lot of time that could otherwise be spent in more interesting rooms. You would need a longer tour to see more of the outer gardens.

Tour guide Manuel was extremely nice and went overboard at showing us around Paris since we were doing well time wise. Museum itself is amazing! If you plan to see the Trianons too, book a whole day visit as they only only open at noon.
