Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

Meet your guide in Versailles and journey in the footsteps of the kings and queens of France! During the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, Versailles was the place to be and to be seen. Nowadays visitors from all over the world still come to Versailles to marvel at the splendors of this incredible palace. Your skip-the-line access allows you to bypass the long lines that form each day, and your friendly local guide will steer you expertly through the crowds, bringing the famous figures who once inhabited this palace back to life.

See the dazzling Hall of Mirrors and the royal bedrooms where the king and queen would go to bed and get up daily in front of a large audience. Learn about life at the royal court - there was even a ceremony for the King putting on and taking off his hunting boots! - the glory of the Sun King that was symbolised by this magnificent palace, and the tragic downfall of King Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution.

Truly enjoyed this tour. The guide was very informative and the Versailles palace is unbelievable. The tour company was very accommodating and helpful with our late arrival.

Our guide Ivan was fantastic 😆 Really enjoyed his conversations and he kept everyone calm while waiting in the queue to get into the palace. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the time period, and the history of France in general, so we felt very comfortable to ask him questions 👌 We’re definitely far more educated on the subject of the “Louis(s)” and Napoleonic era. An absolute must while in France 🇫🇷 👌
