Versailles Half-Day Tour from Paris with Skip-the-Line Entry and Special Access to King's Apartments

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your tour coordinator and group of 25 people or fewer in central Paris. Board a bus bound for Versailles, and on arrival meet your guide and head straight for the palace's reserved entrance, skipping the long general entry line. 

    Find yourself in the King's private apartments, where your group will be the only one allowed into each room. Learn about the daily lives of Kings Louis XV and XVI, their queens and their mistresses. These lavish private rooms remained furnished just as they were at the height of their use, preserved by the stringent and highly regulated access schedule. See art collections, personal furniture and family portraits as you listen to your guide outline the difference between the royalty's daily public and private lives. In Versailles’ time you could only enter these private apartments with the permission of the King. 

    In addition to special access to the château's hidden rooms, explore the main apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and take a guided stroll through the lush formal gardens. At the end of the visit you will be free to wander as long as you like. Return to Paris by bus.

    Versailles was stunning, pictures on internet can’t explain how it is to feel like a King in his own huge palace, walking around the gardens.. By the way it was fantastic to skip the line, feeling like a VIP, cause the normal queue was long...More
