  • Get a guided tour of King Louis XIV's magnificent royal residences, with over 700 Baroque rooms filled with rare treasures and priceless Renaissance art
  • Check your hair in the iconic Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), and see where the treaty of Versailles was signed in this UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Explore 250 acres of stunning gardens, packed with marble statues, hidden grottoes, and world-famous landscaping design

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.

We came late to our appointment, and they arranged it so we can join the other group. Very nice people and very informative and helpful.

Superb excursion. We loved Audrey’s passion for her subject and felt she gave us great insight. Well in excess of the advertised 75 mins tour, not too busy despite an August Friday afternoon slot. Had a great time. Shame we ran out of time to get to see Le Hameau.

Versailles is, in a word, fantastic. Our guide, Audrey, was excellent, well informed but not dry or too long. She was charming, attentive to her group and much appreciated.
