Your Private Tour of Versailles Palace begins at the shining Golden Gates. Your guide will be waiting for you with your pre-booked tickets, ready to accompany you directly into the palace.

Inside the Palace of Versailles

You’ll find it hard to believe that Versailles was just a hunting lodge until Louis XIV transformed it into one of the world’s largest royal residences. You’ll see the halls of the palace, famed for their decadence, like the glittering Hall of Mirrors and the State Apartments of the King; you’ll visit the private areas of the royal bed chambers and hear stories of the kings and queens who lived here.

Scandal and debauchery

Your guide will tell you all about the self-absorbed ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV, called ‘the vainest man ever’ by his courtiers and the young Austrian princess, Marie Antoinette, who was eventually forced to flee from the palace. Stories of scandalous love affairs, royal mistresses, and gambling will come to life as you walk through the palace. How did the poor French people react to the rumors of extravagance and debauchery? After little more than 100 years, Revolution brought an end to the parties of Versailles.

Your tour of the palace ends as you step into the amazing gardens of Versailles. Your guide will tell you about some points of interest before saying goodbye, leaving you free to explore and enjoy the incredible fountains at your leisure.
