Tour Highlights

The Palace

Once the royal Palace of France's most famous Kings, the Chateau of Versailles is simply outstanding. We skip the long lines so you can enjoy more time in the Palace!

Local Outdoor Market

Opened in the time of Louis XIV, the Versailles Market is where you'll discover the local specialties, and choose the best ingredients for your picnic lunch.

Marie-Antoinette’s Domain

This was the hide-away of Marie-Antoinette! Seeking a complete break from royal life this private village and farm was built so that she could pretend to be a commoner.

The Royal Grounds

With more than 2,000 acres of beautiful landscapes, fields of crops, an immense lake, and perfectly trimmed trees the Royal Grounds will amaze you.

Grand Trianon

Built by Louis XIV as a summer house. This is where kings would go to escape from the etiquette of the court. Access to the Grand Trianon is included in the tour price!

Picnic at the Grand Canal

Enjoy your lunch while sitting in the soft grass gazing over the largest lake in Versailles. You’ll love the view over the lake and Palace from this secluded part of the grounds.

Petit Trianon

Built by Louis XV for his favorite mistress Madame de Pompadour, this little chateau was later given to Marie-Antoinette. Access to the Petit Trianon is included in the tour price.

Royal Forest

Ride through some of the forests where the Royalty of old used to spend their afternoons hiding from court protocol and hunting stag, pheasant, wild boar, and fox.

French Gardens

This beautiful configuration of flowers and shrubbery is unparalleled. Entrance is free however on certain days there is a small optional charge to enter this part of the grounds.

Hall of Mirrors

The last time the guillotine was used in France was in 1977, the same year the movie “Star Wars” came out.
