If you have only half a day to dedicate to visiting Château de Versailles, the most famous palace in France, do it on this 4.5-hour private tour from Paris for the quickest and most comfortable way to reach the UNESCO World Heritage site. You'll explore its interior, learning about the extravagant life of French kings as you admire luxuriously adorned chambers. Then head outside to marvel at the French gardens and groves.

We may also buy skip-the-line tickets for you. They cost € 18 per person and are paid in Versailles castle to your guide.

After hotel pickup in Paris, your tour starts with the drive to the Palace of Versailles, which played a fascinating role in French history. The dream of the Sun King, the palace is a pure example of the classical French architecture of the 17th century and is home to two smaller estates—the Trianon and Marie Antoinette's Hameau.

When you arrive, your guide tells you about the history of the château and its infamous residents. See and hear about the places constructed specially for King Louis XIV, such as the Hall of Mirrors, the apartments of the king and the queen, and other royal chambers. After your visit inside the palace, follow your guide outside to see the gardens and groves designed by the landscape architect Le Notre, the creator of the French garden style.

At the end of your time at Versailles, you'll be returned to Paris in your private transport.

We loved everything about this tour! The Palace of Versailles (and the gardens) were stunning, and the transportation from our doorstep to the Palace and back was seamless. Lilit Abrahamyan was an excellent guide her vast knowledge of Paris, Versailles, art, and history greatly enriched the experience. We learned many interesting facts about Paris on the trip to and from Versailles. We highly recommend this tour!

Tour Guide most informative and made the whole tour very fun and enjoyable even for our 11 year old children. She took the time to explain the French Revolution in a way that kept our 11 year olds highly entertained. We were disappointed that none of the fountains in the gardens were running (they only run on the weekend). Versailles is spectacular and must not be missed, especially with Lillith as your tour guide.

The Palace was absolutely magnificent. It’s very crowded and you can’t possibly cover everything. Be careful of the pickpockets.

The entire tour was fantastic! The tour agent was very attentive to our needs and contacted me on the tour way in advance to ensure that the details were locked in properly. The agent even arranged for the driver to drop us off at Gard Du Nord station after the tour so that we could catch the Eurostar
