    You will 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. You will be guaranteed fast-track entry, allowing you to jump the queue and travel in comfort on one of our fully air-conditioned coaches.

    You will 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. You will be guaranteed fast-track entry, allowing you to jump the queue and travel in comfort on one of our fully air-conditioned coaches. You will marvel at the breathtaking royal chateau, transformed by the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV in the 1660s from a hunting lodge. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the centre of royal and political power until the French Revolution in 1789 which saw Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette forced to return to the capital.

    Your audio guide 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.

    You will also be given time to explore the manicured gardens "à la française", which mirrors the splendor of the interior. Designed by the French landscaper André Le Nôtre in 1661 for the King Louis XIV, the 2,000-acre park is an architectural expanse of perspectives, parterres, fountains and groves that since its inception has defined what a French garden should be.

      Our guides were kind and knowledgeable. They spoke English and Spanish which was a plus for many of us on the tour. They gave us advice about how to tour Versailles to maximize our 2.5 hours there. All in all a great value and wonderful experience.

      The Palace of Versailles is so worth the trip! Gardens and Palace are gorgeous. Only issue was that the four hours was not enough for palace and gardens. If I ever get the opportunity to go again, I will opt for the full day.

      Had a great experience. Thank heavens we used skip the line as there was a revertible sea of folks lined up for hours to get in. We have a comfortable bus ride in, a super easy access to the site. All in all a great day.

      I was in Paris on a business trip and this was the perfect activity for the limited amount of time I had available. I wish I could have been there a full day since the grounds at Versailles are absolutely beautiful but this half day tour worked well for me. I was able to see the palace and see a few of the fountains. The departure in the morning and return from the palace was prompt and the guides on the bus were patient, informative and helpful. I'm glad i was able to sneak away from work to enjoy this. The palace and the gardens are simply breathtaking.

      If you want real skip the line tour, then book this tour. They took us to a side entrance, apart from the rest of the crowd with the super long lines.

      This tour was excellent.. The bus trip was comfortable and ran on time.The scenery from the bus was lovely. Once we arrived we were issues with head sets that explained each of the rooms. There was free time to wonder around the gardens. There is a small cafe in the garden to purchase coffee and food if you are interested. Highly recommend this tour.

      Incredible history and beauty, hopefully your visit will be when it is nice enough to enjoy the gardens as well. Each room you walk into makes you imagine what it must have been like back in the day. The Hall of Mirrors is incredible. The tea room was delicious with picture perfect desserts. Definitely recommend the Fraiser.......yum.

      Do not try going on your own! Unless you want to spend the whole day in line....The tour guide was great and we were in and out. The our company is right by the Eifel Tower so you can enjoy the rest of your day.

      Perfect 1/2 day excursion to Versailles! Traveling with a 9-year old this was the perfect amount of time to spend. The skip the line access allowed us to bypass the long lines and the guide even handed us the audio guides - first class service. We enjoyed going at our own pace through the Palace and even had time to explore the gardens. By chance the fountains and music were in operation the afternoon we visited. A very magical experience.

      Absolutely a must.... We went on a Sunday morning, and the agency was a few blocks from eiffel tower... Our guide Silva was amazing, very pleasant and patient... So glad I got the skip the line because omgoodness the line was packed with tourist waiting to purchase tickets!!!! The audio guide was easy just dial the number of each room and the information started playing... Palace was awesome by the way... We just happened to come the first day of the musical gardens , a must of you can ... Simply marvelous!!! Our tour lasted to 1130 ish, we had to be back on bus by 1140 for the half day. The full day lasted to 440pm... If your looking for friendly guides that escort you into the monument without waiting all day, this is it!!

      This tour is as advertised. The 2.5-hour timeframe is perfect, at least in the winter time when it's too cold to explore the gardens and there isn't much to see during that time of year. We had plenty of time to explore the palace and take a small break in a cafe.

      Thanks to Nicola our driver who had taken us there and back to Versailles. She provided an excellent historical talk relating to the Palace. The Palace and gardens are a must. However I think another hour in the gardens would have been perfect.
      So I think at least 3hrs to see the Palace and Gardens which are a treat to the eye.
