Overview

Explore the Palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris by train that includes time to discover the palace gardens and the Petit Trianon, where Marie Antoinette spent much of her time. Inside the palace, you'll see the Hall of Mirrors and the state apartments before heading outside to the private domain of the former French Queen. Many visitors to Versailles don't take the time to visit the queen's separate home and village with its farm and gardens, so don't miss this more in-depth experience.

My family and I LOVED the Versailles Tour! The Palace and the Fountain Show throughout the Gardens was magnificent! Our guide, Rosaria Vacca, was charming and knowledgeable: it was definitely worth every penny to have a Guide‼️ This was a truly unique and special day that we will remember forever❣️

Our guide was amazing. She tried to keep the kids involved and taught us so much French history we could pass a test! Wonderful day.

Fantastic Palace of Versailles & Grounds Tour
Priyanka_S
, Jun 2022
I choose this tour to visit the Palace of Versailles for the first time. Overall, the tour was great and our tour guide was fantastic. We met the group at the dedicated location as indicated. For some reason, the trains going to Versailles were running late or cancelled. Our guide, who was taking us to Versailles, was very calm and explained that we will be taking a different train (from the same station) and when it arrives in Versailles, we would need to walk a few blocks to the palace (instead of the original train that would have arrived at the station closest to the palace). This was our best option if we wanted to make sure we got to the palace in the morning. When we arrived at the palace, approximately an hour and half after our original arrival time, we met our tour guide, Adam. He got the groups entrance tickets updated to a new entrance time. The audio devices that each group member was given were great in listening to our tour guide throughout the palace tour. My family didn't pay for the lunch at the palace as a part our package, so we bought lunch from a cafe in the gardens. The few of us continuing onto the afternoon tour of Marie Antionette's hamlet and the Petit Trianon, met our tour guide again and we walked through the gardens, Hamlet and Petit Trianon. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and we learned so much. Overall, the experience was great. The palace and grounds weren't too crowded, which helped our experience. I would highly recommend this tour. If we didn't have the guide at the train station to help us navigate the delay and the guide at the palace to update our entrance tickets, I'm sure our day would not have ended up so well.

Thank you very much for your review and for taking the time to leave so many details. We have shared it with both Maria José who took you to Versailles and with your guide there, Evrard. It certainly was quite a day on Tuesday! Many thanks from us also to the two of them for fixing everything so efficiently and making sure that all our guests got to see and do everything on the day as they should have, despite the train problems. Now you can say you not only experienced Versailles but also the life of a Parisian commuter! We are really pleased that you enjoyed the day so much. Versailles is a wonderful place and we were determined to get you all there and ensure you didn't miss a thing. We hope you're enjoying your stay in Paris, and thank you again for taking the time to leave us such a long and kind review!

Beautiful and informative tour of Versailles

First and foremost I have to say that our tour guide Romain was the reason I enjoyed this tour so much. Versailles is beautiful but if you were to go on your own you would be missing out on so much information of what happened there. Romain was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic about everything Versailles and the people there. He made it seem like you were actually walking around the palace during the times of the royals. I would definitely not miss this tour!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Many thanks for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review. We were very happy to pass it on to Romain, and he of course was very happy to read it too! We agree you would miss such a lot if you went alone, there are such amazing stories about the royal family and their life at Versailles. We are happy you didn't miss the tour and we very much hope to see you again!

History, spectacular gardens and an amazing lunch!

This tour was excellent! Our tour guide, Ivan, was not only incredibly knowledgeable, but he was also so kind and genuinely cared about our experience. We especially enjoyed the gardens and the Petit Trianon- the difference between the opulence of Versailles and its gardens and the Petit Trianon and hamlet made for a really interesting day. I learned so much because of the way in which Ivan explained everything. I knew that we had booked lunch as part of our tour, but I didn’t realize that we would be having a three course lunch with wine at an Alain Ducasse restaurant at Versailles. That was an unexpected bonus and a real treat. This tour was expensive, but we felt it was worth every penny.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review, we appreciate it very much. We have passed your kind comments on to Ivan, he was as pleased to read them as we were. We are happy you enjoyed your tour, and glad that the lunch was a nice surprise, we are always trying to exceed expectations! We design and price our tours very carefully to ensure you get the best value for your money, and that every dollar you spend is worth it. We are very happy to read that you felt that, and we hope to see you again on future visits.

Our tour guide for the Versailles Palace was great, his name was Herve. He gave us very detailed information about everything in the palace. He spoke to us in 3 different languages and was super kind. Thanks Herve

Is a tour we all need to do when visiting France,must be patience (big crowds) ,is very big lots of walking 18000 steps that day ,there is a little train that takes you to the Antionette Estate not comfortable and goat track is very bumpy (not good for back) , I would not do it with a large group we were 9 and still lost 2 ,but with the right tour guide this would not happen.Yes there is some negative views in my review but to see this place there is no easy way, off season there is still the crowds. Hey just had to cross it off!!!

Excellent tour. Our guide Herve was extremely informative and passionate about Versailles and Marie Antoinette. His knowledge of French history was amazing. His kindness and concern about the people who were on the tour was heart warming. We were blessed to have him as our guide, 8 wonderful hours of informative history!

I cannot say enough good things about this tour. If you are lucky enough to get Herve for your tour guide you will be amazed at his knowledge. The palace was overwhelmingly crowded, but Herve made the best of it and kept us moving and was still able to share his knowledge in each of the rooms.

Great day at Versailles!

Our guide was Raphael. She was great! So funny and informative. We got some good historical context to the whole layout and story of Versailles. I'm glad we did the whole day option which included Marie Antoinette's hamlet. It was such an interesting contrast. Our day ended inside the gardens, which we could have stayed in longer, it's so large, but we were too tired. The palace was of course cram packed, but that was to be expected. Overall we enjoyed our day!

We knew Versailles would be impressive but we were blown away by it's real size and beauty. It is a must see. Our guide had access to areas we would never have been able to see on our own. She was a font of knowledge and answered everyone's questions. She was also very considerate of the needs of each person in our group.
