    Very good, when I saw the 500+people line up in front of the gate, I felt I’m so smart purchased the skip the line package. You don’t want to stand under the sun for more than an hour, especially it’s killing hot there. The guide is very nice and took care everyone. Thanks!

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.

    The trip was good but better if longer time so that we could take more pictures. An extra 1 hour is good enough. But overall i would say the trip would be better if longer and not rush as it is given:

    "Avoid long ticket queues with skip the line entry and indulge in the regal splendor of France's former royal court" Our tour was scheduled 8:45AM I arrived an hour early 7:30 AM The bus departed by 8:55 AM We arrived at Versailles by 9:30 AM We waited 1 hour in the "skip the line entry" and were able to start the tour by 10:30 AM We needed to be back exactly by 12:00 NN (approximately 1 hour and 30 minute tour!) The whole activity was affected and the tour guide was so quick(sometimes we can't comprehend) since we were pressing for time. Some people without the tour were able to secure tickets on the venue got in before us. If I knew that would be the case, I should have not booked with Klook and purchased the ticket on the spot! Not all the places in this page were visited. Only 60% of the tour's proposed itinerary maybe because of the lack of time

    The guide is nice and knowledgable, impressive tour ever
  • Nee Han 19 Jun 2017
    It is very convenient as the tour picks me up from agency. As we reached Versaille Palace, we managed to skip the snaking queues, we were in within half hr, but those without reservation would have to stand and queue for hours I guess. The guide could do more to keep the group together although it's always a challenge in such a crowded place. Would still highly recommend it for the convenience.. found the gardens very nice too, better than the palace.

    The Chinese commentary is really great. It tells a lot of stories to stop with us. The gathering place is also very easy to find. Very good experience.

    A private car and a guided tour are the best choices for visiting Versailles for a limited time! There is not much problem with this trip. The only regret is that the Chinese explanation is scheduled. However, in the confirmation letter, the Chinese is informed to be full, and it is necessary to change to the English delegation.
