Know More about this tour

You will be transported back to the Golden Age of France with a trip to the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and emblem of French royalty and extravagance. You will be guaranteed fast-track entry, allowing you to jump the queue and travel in comfort on one of our fully air-conditioned coaches. You will marvel at the breathtaking royal chateau, transformed by the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV in the 1660s from a hunting lodge. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the centre of royal and political power until the French Revolution in 1789 which saw Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette forced to return to the capital.

Your audio guide will enable you to discover the State apartments of the King and Queen, the Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors, the epitome of French opulence: three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors line the gold-adorned hall and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

You will also be given time to explore the manicured gardens "à la française", which mirrors the splendor of the interior. Designed by the French landscaper André Le Nôtre in 1661 for the King Louis XIV, the 2,000-acre park is an architectural expanse of perspectives, parterres, fountains and groves that since its inception has defined what a French garden should be.

  • Well organized, on the way to Versailles, the guide took the time to tell more about the history of Versailles and the palace.

  • Great transportation , magnificent Palace well worth seeing !

  • Spectacular. Not to be missed. Comfortable ride.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The girls at the front office were clueless as to which trip we had signed up for. There was no toilet in the tourist office and we had to look for cafes to use the bathroom. They give you very little time in the half day trip. We could not spend enough time at the palace and see the entire gardens. The guide didn't tell us that the fountains go every 10 minutes. So we left the palace by 10:00 am in a hurry to see the fountain show. For the price they charge they should give another one hour.

  • Our guide was great and the Palace was beautiful. The only thing we were disappointed with is the fountains were closed on weekdays.

  • Thanks to Nicola our driver who had taken us there and back to Versailles. She provided an excellent historical talk relating to the Palace. The Palace and gardens are a must. However I think another hour in the gardens would have been perfect.
    So I think at least 3hrs to see the Palace and Gardens which are a treat to the eye.

  • Great, amazing place to visit. Tour is for four hours and we left late and then it did not seem to be very well organised on arrival we had very limited time to view the gardens which was very disappointing. Audio system terrible and not compatible with looking and photographing while listening that is if you could find a number for the room. Enjoyed the visit left feeling disappointed.

  • Beautiful palace and the weather was just perfect for us to walk around the garden area and take photos.

  • The guide was terrific - she prepared us well, made sure we stayed together, etc., very congenial etc. However Versailles itself was so dang crowded. We missed some rooms due to them being packed with people. The best part of arranging this via Viator was everything was taken care of - I would never attempt to see Versailles or the Louvre without a guide. Thanks!
