Overview

Skip the hassle of planning and join us on a day trip from Paris to the Palace of Versailles. We handle the round-trip train tickets, skip the line Versailles tickets and an English-speaking guide. See all the best rooms in the Palace, including the Hall of Mirrors,  King's State Apartments and King's Private Apartments. Understand what it was like to be a 
French royalty in 17th century France. 
The tour is three hours long, including the time spent traveling with our guide from Paris to Versailles and a two hour guided tour of the palace and gardens.

Originally, the Palace of Versailles and Gardens were the hunting grounds of King Louis XIII. When his son Louis XIV took over the land, he constructed the palace and built what we now know as the Château de Versailles. With over 2,000 rooms and windows, it's a protected piece of French history and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After arriving in Versailles from Paris, enter the palace and begin your guided tour with your English-speaking guide. This is best way to visit the Palace of Versailles - you don't need to worry about reserving tickets or standing in line. Plus, we're the experts and know exactly what to see in the seemingly-endless former royal residence.
The Hall of Mirrors and WWI
Running almost 70 yards long, the Hall of Mirrors is the most well-known rooms in the Palace of Versailles. Adorned with 357 mirrors, the room pays tribute to the political, economic and artistic accomplishments of France. With so many mirrors, only a handful of lit candles were required to illuminate the whole room. The Hall of Mirrors is so important because it is where the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919 (ending WWI).
Gardens of Versailles
At the conclusion of your guided Palace of Versailles tour, take the opportunity to spend some time in the Gardens of Versailles. Copied around the world, these immaculate gardens take up a total area of almost 2,000 acres. To create them, entire regiments of the French army transported trees and leveled the ground. After an introduction, explore the gardens on your own, and take some time to soak up some sun. Then, with your return ticket in hand, board the train back to Paris.
