  • Overview & Itinerary


    Enjoy a day out from Paris and discover the intriguing royal history of King Louis XVI and his queen Marie Antoinette with a tour of the Palace of Versailles, as well as Marie Antoinette’s own private estate.

    The Palace of Versailles is a UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its exquisite royal chambers and verdant formal gardens, private royal estates, and fountains and pools spreading across 800 hectares. Built by Louis the XIV, it served as the seat of the royal court for more than a century.

    The tour of the palace and the queen’s private estate is a memorable experience. You will be astonished by the abundance of art and impressive architectural styles used to build the palace and the grounds beyond.

    Avoid standing in long queues with a skip-the-line ticket to the Palace of Versailles. An audio guide will assist your explorations around the vast property, providing significant details about the palace.


    Set off from Paris to the Palace of Versailles in an air-conditioned coach and enjoy skip-the-line entry into the palace premises.

    Collect your audio guide from the entry gate, walk into the palace and admire the extravagance of King Louis XIV’s intimate chambers, the striking halls lined with statues, and the wonderful gardens beyond. Explore the Grand Apartments, King’s Apartments, Queen’s Apartments, Hall of Mirrors and the Hall of the Battles during the course of the tour.

    Stroll through the lush formal gardens, taking in the beautiful groves and the remarkable sculptures, waterways, royal residencies and the magical fountains show.

    Continuing your tour, visit Marie Antoinette’s private estate, from the Petit Trianon, and pass by the Queen’s Hamlet to the Queen’s Garden. The estate gives greater insight into the private life of the queen where she often enjoyed the pleasures of rural pursuits, away from the pomp and splendour of the Palace of Versailles.

    After completing your Versailles tour, you will be taken back to the original departure point in Paris.
