Small Group Versailles Palace Day Trip with Skip the Line Audio Guided Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Experience the grandeur of Versailles Palace and Gardens on a small group tour from Paris. With a maximum of only eight per group, this small group trip to Versailles ensures a more intimate experience. Hotel pickup from centrally located Paris hotels is included, taking all the guess work out of your trip. You can choose from a half-day tour (independent tour), either in the morning or afternoon, or a full-day tour (guided tour). On both the half-day and full-day tours you'll also be able to wander around the garden's groves and pools. If you visit Versailles on a Saturday or Sunday during April to October, you can see the famous fountain show in the gardens. The display is accompanied by music composed at the time of Louis XIV's court.
  • A small-group Versailles tour helps you beat crowds and see the sights
  • Round-trip transportation to and from your hotel via air-conditioned minivan
  • Choose between a half-day audio tour or a full-day guided tour
  • See Hall of Mirrors, Royal Apartments, and Versailles’ sprawling gardens
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Paris accommodation at the prearranged time. Tour groups are capped at eight.
Head to Versailles in the comfort of an air-conditioned minivan, and learn about the palace’s history from your guide.
Upon your arrival, if you selected the half-day tour, you receive an audio guide, available in eight languages, and explore the palace independently. See major attractions such as the Hall of Mirrors, Royal Apartments, and Versailles’ sprawling gardens.
If you are on the full-day tour, your arrival begins with a guided tour of the palace interior and its key sights, followed by a meal at a cafe on the grounds (own expense).
After lunch, discover Versailles’ gardens, Queen’s Hamlet, and Grand Trianon. If visiting on weekend dates between April and October, your garden tour coincides with a fountain show.
The tour concludes in Paris, where you are dropped at your accommodation.

By far, the WORST TOUR I HAVE EVER DONE. I’ve been doing tours for years and I think I’m pretty patient with little inconveniences. But this was bad. I would adamantly tell anyone NOT to book this tour. Get something else—maybe Get Your Guide, etc....More
