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.

The guided tour by Anne-Sophie was amazing. She was super knowledgeable and made it very fun. Best experience we did in Paris. Tiquets made the process very easy.

We booked a last minute group tour. The office to meet up was easy to find only about 5-10 minutes from Versailles. We decided to do a private tour and as luck would have it... they gave us Audrey. She was so knowledgeable and friendly. She answered most all of our questions and made this tour such a memorable experience. Whatever you do... at least buy skip the line group tickets!!! Do NOT wait in that long ridiculous morning line with general admission. You will not learn a thing about the castle by simply walking around on your own.

Our guide was Pascal, he was very knowledgeable and passionate which made the tour very enjoyable. Overall this made our tour fun and we felt we came away knowing a lot more about the history of Versailles.

Avoiding ticket queues is essential. Even the visit with the guide is oppressively crowded in late Sept. Guide great. Gardens superb. Palace feels a bit neglected despite its splendour.
