    The Palace of Versailles & Gardens were great! The tour guide was very helpful to point out the important places and history of the area. The gardens were nice too. Suggest to go during summertime to enjoy the gardens better. Go during Saturdays or Sundays since the fountains will be working and there is music.

What To Expect

There’s no where else in Europe that does luxury quite like Versailles. Built by Louis XIV to show off the absolute power of the monarchy, this estate remains one of the greatest achievements of French art and design- so it’s not to be missed! Your tour starts in Paris once you board the comfy, air-conditioned coach where your guide will spend the 45-minute journey introducing you to the rich history of the palace. Then, bypass the notoriously long queues and begin your guided tour straight away. Marvel at the sheer size and grandeur of the King’s and Queen’s Apartments, the Coronation Room, and the utterly incomparable Hall of Mirrors. Hidden away from the modern world and a perfectly preserved example of the French monarchy’s over-the-top extravagance, you’ll feel magically transported back to the 17th Century as you walk the gilded halls. Afterwards, enjoy free time to explore the dazzling formal gardens renowned for their geometry and discover: the Grand Trianon, the King’s retreat escape from strict court life, the Petit Trianon, and Marie Antoinette’s mock farm village, ideal for children to play around. Then hop back onboard the coach for a timely arrival in Paris where your tour ends.

  • Grace Lynn 20 Oct 2018
    the fast pass to this place is an advantage as there is a long line to the entrance. the palace itself is grandiose, but there are a few items left inside so you will have to imagine how it looked liked before. the gardens are spectacular.
  • Wan Sum Celeste 17 Oct 2018
    The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. However, the place was very crowded when we visit and we didn't get the chance to examine the exhibits more closely. The gardens were vast. If you want to explore the whole place, a full day tour is more appropriate. I noted there were more people visiting in the afternoon than morning.
  • Ka Ho 14 Oct 2018
    The palace is magnificent, and the garden is huge! The 2-hour tour was a bit too short.
  • Maria Cecilia 28 Sep 2018
    Skip the line wasn’t really effective because there were a lot of tour groups in line. By the time we got inside the palace, we were already running out of time. We didn’t get to enjoy the gardens, only took pictures of it, then we had to walk fast back to the bus.
  • Mary Anne 28 Sep 2018
    One of the best experience when I visit Paris. Half day tour was a little bit short. Try to get the whole day tour!
  • Ya Syuan 27 Sep 2018
    very nice tour guide and speak very fluently English and introduce history
  • Sathyanarayanan 23 Sep 2018
    Overall experience was not as expected. Everything was super quick not having time for the beautiful garden and shopping. In the Itinerary, they mentioned the trip will be from 8.45 to 14.00. 8.45 was correct, however we all returned back at 12.45, which is 1.15 minutes earlier. Further, one odd staff in Pariscityvisin were a bit arrogant.
  • John Ferdie 22 Sep 2018
    It was a great tour. Agnes, our guide, is a lovely lady with a great sense of humor. She made the tour extra special. It was great not be in those long line going inside the palace.
  • Kien Wai 17 Sep 2018
    The guide provide good explanation on the attraction. If could provide more time to complete the attraction viewing would be great.
