This is an absolutely stress free way to visit the Palace of Versailles and surrounding gardens. Your host will handle everything imaginable when it comes to visiting the Palace of Versailles.
You’ll meet your host in Paris, near the train station in Montparnasse, and they’ll accompany you all the way to Versailles. Along the way they will share information about the palace you’re about to visit.
Once you arrive at Versailles, your host will walk with you to the palace entrance. You’ll receive your timed skip-the-line timed entry ticket for the palace, which includes access to an audio guide. Before you enter the palace your host will also explain how to return to Paris on your own with your return train ticket.
Spend the rest of the day enjoying Versailles at your own pace.
We recommend allowing 2-4 hours to enjoy this magnificent estate. Round-trip transportation between Paris and Versailles takes about 2-3 hours, so in total, plan around 5-6 hours for this experience.

Our guide was incredibly patient with the surprising amount of children on the tour, and got all of his notes across clearly with professionalism and relative ease. The caves themselves are spectacular, and the rooms created for the tour and other events are well designed and a joy to be in. The wine selection was spectacular: those were the best 3 wines we had during our stay in France. We left with a much better understanding of French wines that we will take with us into the future. This tour has inspired us to return to France for a wine tour across the country, which we’ll start planning soon!

Return tickets on train did not work. Had to purchase new return tickets. Short tour and overpriced. Next time I can buy my own tickets. There is no skip the line. We stood in line like everyone else for our entry time. Do not fall for this tourist trap.

We started at 9am then went to the train station and took a ride to Versailles. We then walked to the palace where we met with another guide to get our tickets into the palace. The guide then walked us to the entrance of the gardens. We arrived at the gardens at 10am. Our group then noticed that the ticket to get into the actual palace wasn’t for 5 HOURS!(3pm) When we asked the guide what the deal was, she said “That’s what the ticket says” and left us. We didn’t even get to go into the palace because we had plans to visit the Eiffel Tower later in the day.

Great way to visit the Palace. Easy train ride from & to Montparnasse. Can be exhausting for older visitors.

Our guide was so sweet, funny and entertaining. She told us a lot of fun facts and made our trip a breeze. I highly recommend this experience as it takes away so much of the stress of navigating the train station, ticketing, getting through Versailles to the palace, etc.
