The seemingly limitless palace reached the zenith of perfection under the Sun King, Louis XIV of France. Discover this acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site on a small group tour of 25 people or fewer, including the Grand Apartments, State Rooms, and Hall of Mirrors.

Meet your guide directly at Versailles. At the palace, immerse yourself in the extravagant lifestyle of the French monarchs. Learn about the lavish lifestyle of the French royals and be regaled with interesting anecdotes about their reigns and daily lives. Explore the different rooms, each gorgeous and bearing the name of Greek gods. The guide will lead you through the palace to the majestic Hall of Mirrors, the most impressive room in the palace.

Take a leisurely walk through the gardens with vibrant flowers and fountains and admire the work of André le Nôtre, an unparalleled landscape architect and court painter Charles Le Brun. This extensive formal garden symbolizes harmonious mastery over nature, all with the Apollonian twist that characterized the reign of the Sun King.

Depending on the time of the year when you take this tour, you can also enjoy the Musical Fountain Show or Musical Gardens. Behold the dazzling spectacle of the fountains timed perfectly to classical music or hear soulful tunes while discovering some of the most idyllic spots. If these events are not running, it will be a standard tour.
