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.

If you can take this tour with Maeva as your guide, go for it. She was the best. Smiling, enthusiastic, and clearly loved her profession. Versailles was impressive, but extremely crowded. Maeva would pull us over to a semi-quiet corner and tell us about what we were seeing. The crowds were a bit much, but if you have a good guide, it's worth seeing, if only once.

Bravo! Been on many tours in my life; this one was small, attentive, comfortable and knowledgable! I loved the fact that I could have the wind in my hair and an unobstructed view all the way the the castle. That was not the best part however, but our guide Maeva was! Energetic, friendly and smart!

This was a beautiful place to see. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking a whole lot. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and she allowed some time to explore on your own as well. You can take pictures inside which was a major perk.

Excellent tour! A guide through this highly popular attraction is highly recommended. Our guide pointed out many things of interest that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Her knowledge of the history of the building and the town was extensive.

Fantastic tour organisers! We were running late as there was a breakdown on the Metro line we needed to get on, so we missed the bus. The tour company was lovely enough to drive us to Versailles separately to join the tour group. Great time in Versailles too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Our tour guide was great. We wish we had more time to explore the garden, but that was due to the fact that there was a long wait to get into the entrance. Otherwise, everything was great.
