Versailles Half Day Small Group Guided Tour with Hotel Pick-up

Versailles Half Day Guided Tour with Hotel Pick-Up



Have you ever wondered about the famous kings who lived at Versailles and life at the French Court?

Enjoy a guided tour of the Palace with a professional guide who will bring to life and provide insight on its famous inhabitants. Hear captivating stories on Louis XIV, the two other kings who lived there, their queens, and numerous mistresses.

This 6-hour small group (up to 30 people) tour includes a round-trip transfer from your accommodation in Paris to Versailles by minivan limited to 8 people. At the Palace, enjoy skip-the-line access. The guide will also walk you through the history of this legendary residence as you visit the King’s State Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Salon of Peace, the Hall of Battles and a few other rooms.

Following the tour, you will have about 2:30 hours to explore the expansive gardens on your own. Depending on the day of your tour, you may also be able to experience the Musical Gardens (Tuesday and Friday: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm & 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm) or Musical Fountains (Weekend: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm & 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm).

If you wish to visit the Trianons (Grand Trianon & Petit Trianon), we would recommend you partake in a full day tour.

When your time is up, your driver will come and pick you up at Versailles to bring you back to Paris and drop you off at your hotel or residence.
