Tour description

  • No need to figure out transport, meet your guide in central Paris and you get on the train together
  • €7 return tickets not included 
    • You can buy the tickets off your guide

Designed to hide new revelations around every corner, King Louis XIV spent just as much time and effort planning and designing the Formal French Gardens of Versailles as he did the palace.

The Gardens of Versailles tell the story of the Sun King's reign and projected French Power across the world.

  • Don't miss anything in the giant, maze-like gardens
  • See all the fountain groves, sculptures, and finely manicured details 
  • Hear the stories of what life at Versailles was like
    • 17th Century Hygiene 
    • Absurd Royal Rituals
    • Love, mistresses, and scandals

Come to understand how Versailles shaped and altered the course of French history.
Versailles was the ultimate symbol of France and the Monarchy's absolute power, wealth, and opulence, but would also be a key factor in the French Revolution and lead to the guillotining of the Royals.

  • Does not include a ticket or tour inside the palace but can be bought separately
  • The tour finishes in the Gardens, leaving you the option to stay, go inside the palace, or return to Paris by train 

Join us on this walk through one of the most incredible places and fascinating periods in French history!
