Description

Get the royal treatment with an exclusive guided tour of Louis XIV's jaw-dropping palace. Take in the jewel-encrusted sights as you wander from room to incredible room, stopping to check the Hall of Mirrors and collection of 18th-century art. Then it's time to explore the majestic gardens and soak up 250 beautiful acres of statues, water features, and rare plants.

As stunning as it is, the Palace of Versailles can be a little intimidating – there are more than 700 rooms, after all. A knowledgeable guide makes a world of difference to any Versailles visit, and that's exactly what you'll get with this all-access pass!

'Sun King' Louis XIV gave his father's humble hunting lodge a rather extravagant makeover, showcasing the sheer wealth and power of the French Monarchy. It's just as spectacular today as it would have been almost 400 years ago, stuffed with priceless Renaissance artworks and lavish Baroque architecture.

Your guide will give you a real insider's view, showing you the absolute best of the world's largest royal domain, and teaching you all about its history and inhabitants.

Although the palace was very crowded we passed by a very long line and got in pretty quickly with our guide. Our guide Laura was very knowledge and entertaining. It’s so much better to see something like this with a guide that gives you the history behind what you’re looking at. I would recommend this tour company Guideatours
