Overview

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for 30 years, the Palace of Versailles was once the residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts, from 1682 until the French Revolution in 1789. Your audio guide commentary will give you the opportunity to visit the magnificent Palace of Versailles at your own pace. Admire its Baroque architecture, artworks, sumptuous decoration, and the furniture created by greatest craftsmen of the age. Enjoy strolling through the palace's grounds and gardens to the Trianon, or explore the pretty town of Versailles beyond the palace's walls.

The Palace of Versailles stretches for more than 721,000 square feet and boasts more than 700 rooms. Your audio guide will help you find your way during your visit, tell you about the history of the palace, and immerse you in its unique atmosphere. Your ticket will give you access to the palace's most famous rooms, including the King's Grand Apartment, with seven salons each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.) and the Queen's Grand Apartment, laid out in a mirror image of those of the king, including the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others.

Also see the stunning Hall of Mirrors, a huge room in which guests were received and impressed, dreamt up by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet long, it was designed to amaze the Sun King's (Louis XIV) visitors and is lit by 17 windows and 350 mirrors. It also offers breathtaking views of the palace's beautiful gardens.

During this full day tour of Versailles, spend time discovering the gardens of Versailles and admire their artworks (more than 200 statues), fountains, ponds, flower beds and woodland. In Summer, a range of activities is staged in the gardens, such as the "Grandes Eaux," when the fountains are made to dance to music.

We were able to do our own and be independent. This tour is good for us because we were taking our time and just had a meeting place and time.

You definitely need one whole day to see the main parts of the palace - Staterooms, Battle Gallery, Mesdames Chambers, Marie Antoinette's palace and gardens and the Grand Canal. It took me right up t0 4:30 pm to see it all. Buy a mini-train tour to get around quickly, efficiently and painlessly. Angeline cafes are dotted about for convenient food - salads, sandwiches and pastries and coffee. Good clean toilets and conveniently placed.

Booked trip for my sister's birthday. We both really enjoyed the tour. Not a massive group and the guide John was very informative and made the trip as it was great fun.

Very good excursion, the time is enough to visit the Le Chateau and the gardens. But for someone who wants to visit the Trianon (grand and petit), an extra hour is necessary.

A full day gives you time to walk around the town of Versailles -- would be nice if your company gave a map of the town

The audio guide needs to be updated for the main building as there is about half of the tour without descriptions. This is likely due to the increase in the number of rooms that are now open to the public.

It was a leisurely half day tour with pick up at your hotel/apt. Beautiful gardens and Monet’s house with no guide. Admission to house and gardens included. There were only 5 people in our van which was great and the driver was nice however he was silent both ways without any descriptions. Would do it again

Got us there and back. The audio tour and booklet on the attraction were outstanding. It let us purposefully wander.

Full day self-guide w/ ticket and audio guide were great... we took our time at areas that interested us. We had the chance to enjoy the gardens and had lunch at our own pace... the itinerary was also helpful in giving us an estimated time to spend on each area... Highly recommended to those who prefer to enjoy Versailles at their own pace.

Fabulous but very crowded in the palace. Gardens beautiful but need a whole day to see everything. Bought skip-the-line- ticket but still had to join an enormous queue.
