Description

Board a coach from Paris and skip the line into the Palace to visit secret rooms once used by royals. Admire family portraits, personal furniture and art collections normally closed off to the public. See the Hall of Mirrors and the magnificent gardens before your return ride to Paris.

After an escorted coach ride from central Paris to Versailles, make your way into the palace without standing in line, stepping behind the ropes, passing regular public visitors, and following your guide into the Palace’s private rooms. See where kings and their queens − and mistresses − would go to escape the prying eyes of the court.

The rooms that once buzzed with the daily activity of monarchs are now frozen in time and immaculately preserved. Hear stories of scandal as you admire lavish furnishings, formal portraits and rich collections of artwork. The itinerary also includes exclusive access to either the stunning Opera House or the private Chapel, both closed to the general public.

At the end of the visit, re-emerge into the bustling public apartments through a hidden door, just as the kings and queens would have in their day. Visit the sparkling and spectacular Hall of Mirrors and the sprawling, manicured gardens before returning to Paris.

The tour was amazing. Guide very knowledgeable. Guided tours are the way to go- it gets you past the very long que- just going up to get a ticket will have you waiting for over an hour at some places. When in doubt get the guide- they wish you past all lines!!! This package goes through CityWonders— the bus driver left the premises, after warning is to be at the pickup at a spacific exactly- 1 min later and he would be gone. He was 10min late. The entire bus waited, we called to tour company and they were rude telling us the bus was there and we just weren’t finding it, we should have remembered better- then hung up. Multiple tourist called the company on this issue, (as it was an entire buss load 50+ people from different tours) Finally, they took us seriously and contacted the bus driver. Never an apology from anyone. Minor issue with that tour company- but still a great experience. In the future, I will book with other companies but still through Expedia.
