Select Date and Travellers

Visit the majestic Palace of Versailles on an independent tour from Paris that includes access to the palace, the Versailles gardens, and the King’s Apartments. This tour combines the convenience of pre-booked, direct transport to Versailles from Paris with the freedom to explore Versailles on your own using a pre-recorded audio guide.

  • Convenient morning and afternoon departures available
  • Upgrade to include hop on hop off bus tour of Paris
What to Expect
Make your way to a central Paris meet-up point that's located on a metro line, and then board a climate-controlled coach headed to the Palace of Versailles. As you enjoy views of the Parisian suburbs that surround Versailles, listen to a pre-recorded audio guide to learn a bit about life in the Versailles court and about the flamboyant reign of Louis 14th, the French "Sun King" who established the palace. Upon arrival at Versailles, you have time to explore the sprawling property on your own: walk the manicured gardens, peek into the king’s own apartments, and tour the palace itself. See designs by Le Notre, Mansart, and Le Vau. Your audio guide provides background info on each area. Following your time at Versailles, meet back up at the coach for the return trip to Paris, where this tour concludes.

The skip the line was awesome, the guided part was ok. While we had individual headsets to hear the tour guide, the sound quality was poor as she too should have a headset with microphone. It’s too busy and crowded a facility to otherwise hear.

On the one hand, I'm glad we did this because we got Versailles "checked" - on the other hand - we literally had to sprint thru. You cannot chose were you go (I wanted to see the Queen's apartments) - you just see the King's apartments and famous hall of mirrors. We only had an
