  • 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.

Gabrielle is fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Her guided tour made me fall more in love with Versailles and its history.

Our guide Ruben was amazing. We skipped the line completely .Our tour time was 10 am. Only way to go if you don’t want to wait in line for hours. We took a taxi from Paris to Versailles and the metro home . Just Around the corner and only 20 minutes from Paris by train. Be sure to give yourself extra time because the meeting place was in a little mall area . If you take the metro it is across the street. Highly recommend

Well first we couldn't find the line it said to find on the email, it ended up being their office down the street from the Chateau de Versailles. So they called me to remind me I had a tour (I was running around trying to find the line) 10 minutes after the scheduled time. Then they told us to wait for our guide at a spot and he would have a flower to spot him. Once we met Ruben, he was awesome during the tour sharing a lot of information and things we had never heard of the history regarding the château. We would have not known it was his first time doing the tour, if had not told us. I will definitely not think twice to use their service again it is worth the price.

La agencia muy profesional, muy dispuestos a resolver cualquier duda, en concreto las chicas del mostrador que son un encanto. El guía Rubén ha sido muy profesional y a la vez muy cercano, un 10. No hemos hecho cola, gracias a ir en visita guiada por lo tanto 100% recomendable.
