What you can expect

Experience the grandeur of the Palace of Versailles on this tour of the exquisite Grand Apartments and Hall of Mirrors. Avoid the crowds with skip-the-line access and a private guide knowledgeable in French art, history, and architecture.

After being picked up in Paris, relax during your comfortable ride to the Palace of Versailles and its sprawling gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your guide leads you into the palace’s Grand Apartments and you are instantly transported to a fantastic world of royalty. Elegant marble columns, gold moldings, elaborate paintings, and detailed tapestries cover nearly every square inch of the walls and ceilings. Marvel at the larger-than-life scale of it all, from the massive fireplaces to the exaggerated doorways.

As you enter the Hall of Mirrors, golden light washes over you as you walk between the 17 towering glass doors set across from 17 mirrored arches. Look up for more dazzling views, from shimmering crystal chandeliers to Charles Le Brun’s 30 paintings that span the entire length of the vaulted ceiling.

Outside, stroll through the acres of orange trees, manicured lawns, extravagant statues, and fountains that that make up the ornamental Gardens of Versailles before being taken back to the city.
