An excellent way to see the very private part of the Chateau. Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and knew very interesting historical and special tidbits about life in the Chateau. Book directly if possible vs booking via a hotel service as contact information is not always shared with the tour operator directly. It is a pricy ticket, but extremely well worth it!

Myself and my wife had a fantastic time our guide was very knowledgable and accommodating. Although, it was during COVID-19 we felt safe and appreciate the precautions which were taken by Versailles and Venez Discover during our tour.
