Be transported back to the Golden Age of France with a trip to the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and emblem of French royalty and extravagance. Marvel at the breathtaking royal chateau, transformed by the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV in the 1660s from a hunting lodge. 

Your audio guide, available in 11 languages, will enable you to discover the State apartments of the King and Queen, the Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors, the epitome of French opulence; three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors line the gold-adorned hall and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

Versailles was incredible. The grounds were also much larger and more spread out than I’d realized. Our instructor was very easy to understand and very knowledgeable on various details at Versailles. The tour bus did breakdown before we were taken to Versailles (beyond their control as the buses didn’t appear old) but an alternate form of transportation was quickly found. The tour guide did forget to give us our tickets to the Petite Trianon so we had to walk out there to get them (not a huge deal if you were going anyways).

Loved seeing the palace and gardens! The tour provides transportation, skip the line, and audio guides so you can do everything at your own pace. There's places to eat there. I brought my own headphones to hook up to the guide which was very convenient for taking pictures and still listening.

The whole day was extremely well organised and we had a fabulous time. Definitely the right decision to save travel worries and to bypass the queues. One thing I would mention is the amount of walking that you do if you are there all day and include the gardens (wear comfortable footwear!).
