Full description
Walk in the famous footsteps of the French “Sun King” on a 5-hour guided tour of his opulent residence in Versailles, just 30 minutes from central Paris by train.

Skip the long lines with your priority access ticket. A team of professional guides will be waiting to escort you around some of the most extravagant rooms of pre-revolutionary France. Look inside the King and Queen's State Apartments and wander down the Hall of Mirrors, the dazzling central gallery of the Palace of Versailles.

Then, go to the beautiful French Gardens in the grounds. You will learn about the important figures of the French monarchy, from Louis XIV through Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI. Your guide will bring legends to life in the flamboyant surroundings of the spectacular estate. On Sundays, your entrance ticket also includes access to the magical Fountain Show as you stroll though the Gardens.

After lunch (own expense), transfer by bus to Marie Antoinette’s Estate. Your guide will take you on a tour of the buidlings built for her to escape the rigors of courtly life. Visit the discreet Petite Trianon and Queen’s Hamlet, and learn about her private life away from the pomp of the Palace.
