The first part of your Versailles experience is a guided tour of the palace. During the visit, you’ll see the incredible Royal Apartments where the King and Queen — Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette — once lived and the famous Hall of Mirrors.

Then, enjoy some free time in the gardens to wander through the impeccable ‘Groves’ in summer or to bundle up for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride in winter. Admission tickets are included if you would like to visit the Gallery of Battles at your leisure.

Take a midday break for lunch at La Petite Venise, a restaurant in the gardens facing the Grand Canal.

After your meal, take a guided visit of the Trianons, the private retreat of both Louis XV and Louis XVI. Then head for the Queen’s Hamlet, Marie Antoinette’s similarly private retreat.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:On Saturdays and Sundays from April to October and Tuesdays from mid-May through June the impressive fountains in Versailles’ garden are made even more so with a display set to music that dates from the time of Louis XIV’s court.

The whole day tour is the best

This is a top tour. Versailles was great but Trianon was the highlight of this tour. If you’re going to Versailles, do the whole day tour. You won’t regret it.

If your visiting Paris the full day trip is the way to go. Begin your trip seeing the Palace which is simply amazing to imagine the culture at that time period and see the decorations, paintings and including the decorated ceilings. The day trip includes going beyond the palace. We stopped at a restaurant outside the garden grounds that used to be a horse stable. Wow.. It has been transformed but you still can see how the stable was set up. Amazing Three Course lunch with French Wine included. We then spent time over at the “hunting lodge” also where Louis’ mistress stayed. Spoiler it’s a mini palace we also saw the woods and the queens get away “another mini palace” then we saw where the queen made her “girls only” village. Very informative and full of history. Vincent was our tour guide and made it a wonderful day see if he will be doing your tour. Lastly if your attending in summer be ready for hot temps and long lines that’s why we went on the off season “Feb” was in the 40’sF just needed a jacket was great experience.

Very wonderful tourguide (Claire) and amazing company

Hi, we are a mother and daughter duo from Singapore. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, especially the second half to visit Marie Antoinette’s hamlet. To be honest, the food is not amazing, but the place is, and we also met a very lovely Texan husband and wife duo. I didn’t manage to exchange email addresses with them as I was preoccupied with finding alternative accommodation in Paris, but if they see this, I just want to let them Know that if they see this, to drop me a message here, that if they ever want to come to Singapore, we will be happy to bring them around.

We had a wonderful time at Versailles. This tour was the highlight of our entire 3 city european trip. I highly recommend picking this option mainly because of the wonderful lunch we had in the garden restaurant. 5 star meal with a jug of wine on the table to make the second half of the tour more enjoyable : our guide was very informative and gave us plenty of free time to roam on our own. I can't wait to come back in the summer time!!!

I liked the Versailles tour, but would rather do a private tour. If not for a tall person in my group I would have lost the tour group several times because our guide had no flag. It was a large group, and hard to ask any questions because we were moved so quickly from one room to the next.

We both enjoyed our tour very much. Our tour guide was pleasant and knowledgable. We did the entire day and we both would recommend it over the half day. Our lunch was relaxing and gave us a chance to socialize with our other tour members. Delightfully, the food was very good.

Guide was not as proficient in English thus it detracted from experience. Should include transportation from Gardens to Little Trianon and then to bus. Extensive walking so not recommended for persons having difficulty walking or standing for 7+ hours.

Guide was nice but not clear and didn't really make the tour come alive in any way. Then for some (probably financial reason) we were joined by Spanish speaking tourists after lunch so our guide had to speak in both Spanish and Eng. Not what we paid for. Very average. Wouldn't recommend.
