    What to Expect
    Walk in the footsteps of former kings and queens of France on a tour of the Palace of Versailles. Meet your guide and your small-sized group in central Versailles, a short trip outside of Paris, and beat the long entrance queues at the palace with skip-the-line access.

    Wander through many of the hundreds of lavishly decorated rooms including the Hall of Mirrors, Royal Apartments, Apollo Room, Coronation Room and Royal Chapel. As you explore, listen to tales of royal intrigue and learn about the history behind the UNESCO World Heritage–listed palace.

    After the Palace tour, emerge back into the sunlight for a guided stroll through the stunningly elaborate Versailles Gardens, comprising more than 1,800 acres (728 hectares) of artfully manicured flower beds, hedge art, fountains and statuary. With an optional upgrade, witness the fountains come to life during a spectacular water show, or visit on a Tuesday to enjoy the sounds of classical music cascading through the gardens.

    It’s worth it to get tickets in advance and come early or late in the day, lines can get pretty long, which means tour will also be slow as you’ll have hundreds (seems like thousands) of other people with you or ahead of you. The...More

    This place is a must see for sheer beauty and architecture. It will take a full day to do it right. I would see the gardens in the afternoon and do the castle in the morning. Private tours are always better because of the explanations...More
