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 center 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 among others.

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.

Driver was great- would recommend that this trip should be 3 hours long to visit castle and the gardens. Only had 2 hours.

Of coarse a great place for a day trip. Easy to find check in office, staff is very helpful. The van is comfortable and the driver very considerate to all. I’ve gone by train before and this was very easy. Might do a full day trip next time to spend more time in the gardens

The palace was amazing! Be sure to include a garden ticket with your entrance, it's beyond big! The grounds are amazing. You could easily spend an entire day there!

Seeing Versailles is a must, but the palace was so crowded it was hard to move through it. There isn't enough time to move through such a vast space and see it all. The signage is minimal and unless you read French, a tour guide is probably a better option. It was clear that we were less well regarded than those who chose a guided option. On the other hand, with a place that crowded, wandering the gardens was much more pleasant. That the fountains, save one, were not on, was disappointing.

Meeting point was very convenient by subway : then arriving early at the site in the morning made us almost first in line. Very much appreciated!
