Description

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for 30 years, the Palace of Versailles was once the residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts, from 1682 until the French Revolution in 1789. Your audio guide commentary will give you the opportunity to visit the magnificent Palace of Versailles at your own pace. Admire its Baroque architecture, artworks, sumptuous decoration, and the furniture created by greatest craftsmen of the age. Enjoy strolling through the palace's grounds and gardens to the Trianon, or explore the pretty town of Versailles beyond the palace's walls.

The Palace of Versailles stretches for more than 721,000 square feet and boasts more than 700 rooms. Your audio guide will help you find your way during your visit, tell you about the history of the palace, and immerse you in its unique atmosphere. Your ticket will give you priority access to the palace's most famous rooms, including the King's Grand Apartment, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.) and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others. Also see the stunning Hall of Mirrors, a huge room in which guests were received and impressed, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was designed to amaze the Sun King's (Louis XIV) visitors and is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's beautiful gardens.

Excellent. The gardens are amazing!

Rachel

A lot of people everywhere we travelled. But when leader is professional, than it looks better. And it is exactly Cathrine. Her ve...ry well structured information and especially organization made us more satisfied, then we expected. So we enjoyed famous Versailles very well. Thanks. more

Ivan

This was a great tour and good for those that are pressed for time when in Paris. We did the afternoon trip which was ample time t...o see the palace. Was winter so no need to see the gardens as was about -6 outside. Very impressed that we were given earphones on arrival which meant we could view the palace at our leisure. Again highly recommed this. more

Alicia

Excellent service. Easy to follow booking information and quick response with vouchers being sent through. Would use this site ag...ain with no hesitation. more

Ian

Expedite and precise service, always!

Marco Antonio

Great tour,bus ride was a great way to see paris .Only half a day to see the palace,not too long.

sue

It would be nice if there was a commentary from the driver or assitant to tell the tourists about the areas he is driving through... on the way to Versailles. It would be nice to learn a little while enroute to our tour destination. more

Sidney

We especially enjoyed the coach trip around Paris to Versailles. The tour guide was interesting and informative. Versailles was ve...ry busy and there was a lot to see in a short time.

Sandra

Versailles was beautiful! It was great to be able to go through at your own pace. We were able to stop and look at whatever intere...sted us and pass by things that weren't as interesting to us. We saw many tour groups going through with some wanting to lag behind and being reprimanded for it and others who looked bored and wanting to move on while the tour guide natered away. The only thing we had issue with was that the three hours you have at Versailles includes the long wait in the lineup to get in (most certainly was the longest line up I've ever been in in my entire life). Was most certainly without a doubt worth the wait, however we felt more time was needed to see more of Versailles. Next time we will go for the day. more

Michele

Understood it was 4 hours but ended up it was only 2 hours which didn't permit us to see the gardens

Janice

The tour was fine but at Versailles we had the wrong tickets so it seems. We were send back ( we had the non guided tour)At the bu...s ( were else could we go to) the busdriver yelled no no no when we tried to go in de bus, before he even knows what was going on. However the guide phoned to the conpany and all was settled. But no excuse or anything. more

Anna

We wish we had at least another hour to explore Versailles during this tour. Some background information from the tour guide would... have been helpful, along with a map. more

Hannah

Relaxing to be brought directly to the door with a ticket. However the guide was not specific about where we should line up when w...e HAD a ticket already.
And it is very expensive - considered too little time for an afternoon tour.
more

Jytte

We found the travel to and from the palace to our expectations but an overview of how to see as much as possible in the time fr<...;x>ame given would have been beneficial. We still enjoyed what we saw. Booking and admin went smoothly thankyou. more

robert l

In 30 years of taking tours--the worst. All we could say at the end was why did we pay for this? The tourguide said nothing the ...entire busride. We got to Versailles and she said she was sick and left. We found our own way to the palace and ticket place. We should have just taken the bus or train. more
