Full description

Discover the Palace of Versailles and its stunning gardens with a guided tour from Paris. Take the train to Versailles, and discover its history and culture. Then, explore the palace, including the Hall of Mirrors and The Abduction of Persephone statue.

Depart from Paris in the morning with your guide, and take the train to Versailles. Learn about the city that was the capital of France during several periods of the 17th, 18th, and 19th-century.

After an hour, arrive at one of the greatest symbols of Europe. Versailles stands out for its buildings and rooms as well as its astonishing gardens. The most famous part is without a doubt its sheer size, with more than 1800 hectares of grounds.

Hear the story of King Sun, of its buildings and incredible gardens, the curiosities that make Versailles unique, and the scandals that shook the monarchy and led to the French Revolution. Entangle into the stories and curiosities, and explore the chamber of the King, with its beautiful fountains and the sculpture of The Abduction of Persephone. Clarify the mystery of the diamond necklace, and find out many other important histories of the Palace.

After the guided portion of the tour, enjoy the grounds on your own and walk through the inside of the palace.

The whole trip was very successful, the guide was very good at telling and took care of the trip. I only have reservations about marking the place of the collection. It was not precise, so I had a problem with getting to the designated place of collection. I saw other people also walking around looking for a guide.

It was a beautiful experience. We initially booked with the English guide due to lack of seats but as he was also a Spanish guide on site we asked if it was possible to change and they were very kind to oblige. Louis the guide was very good at telling and involving all of us in the history of the gardens of Versailles and he also gave us a lot of information on how to return and continue the visit inside the palace. Well done, highly recommended

Very successful in contacting you. Clear and punctual meeting point. It facilitates the trip to Versailles and the visit to the gardens is wonderful. Not so to the Palace, now without a guide. Apart from the waiting time to enter there were so many people that it seemed like a Moroccan souk.
