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 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 Hall of Mirrors, sumptuous royal apartments and ornate chapel.

After your palace tour, take a stroll through the Versailles Gardens. Covering nearly 2,000 acres (809 hectares), the 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.

Great, fantastic guide, Stephie, really knowledgeable and passionate about the Palace. Was a lovely small group too - really excellent trip and well worth a trip out of central Paris to go and see.

Versailles is amazing. I had no idea it was an actual town! Petit Trianon and the gardens are just amazing a dwell worth visiting first to help put Versailles in perspective. Actual Versailles is so big, so over the top and so many people it is very hard to take it all in. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. A great day.

This is a spectacular trip and a must to do if in Paris for a few days. Our guide was excellent and you really need their expertise to get the most from a visit as there is so much to see. Excellent addition of the gardens especially if the weather is OK.

Very comfortable transportation and knowledgeable guide. The tour of the palace and was very informative and being there on a Sunday was especially nice since the garden fountains were all operating. I recommend this excursion to all Paris visitors.

The palace is amazing - a must see. Comfortable small bus, good guide. Only 'criticism' is that we were somewhat rushed through a lot of the rooms. It was a Sunday so maybe that happened as it was vey busy. Wold do it again but would maybe look at a full day tour of the place, it needs a full day.
