by City Wonders Duration 3h 30m+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is C$110

Board a coach from Paris to the resplendent Palace of Versailles and skip the lines to marvel at the grandeur and pristine condition of its interior and gardens. Wander through the palace rooms and see where Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI extravagantly entertained during a time of revolt in French history.

Step back in time as you enter the palace and the world of French royalty and aristocracy, worlds apart from modern-day Paris. Feel the magic of the state rooms and see first-hand the vast luxury and riches that perfectly demonstrate the extravagance of this 18th-century monarchy.

Explore the long halls and elegant rooms; see where Louis XVI held ceremonies for his comrades, and the spot where Marie Antoinette allegedly “ate her cake.” Make your way through the King and Queen's apartments, the famous Hall of Mirrors, and the Salon of Abundance, all the while learning of the history of the palace from your expert guide.

Continue outside to the stunning gardens, which span more than 1,800 acres (724 ha). Stroll past classic sculptures, opulent fountains and perfectly manicured lawns. This is a perfect opportunity to take some memorable photos.

The Palace of Versailles is just WOW. The tour guide was so energetic, kind and very nice with the group. The only thing I did not like was the waiting time. Even with “skip the line” we has to wait because other groups were delay and they are very strict to the rules. Our group was 1:45 pm but groups from 12:30 and 1:00 pm have not enter. Its not the guides fault but the organization should be improve or have a better system since there are a LOT of people.

The entrance to the palace was chaotic, our tour guide did her best but the palace staff was very rude. Poor organization. Beside that, our tour guide was very friendly and knowledge, she did our visit very pleasant

Sure the palace was very nice and i enjoyed it but to allow so many people to be in one at any one time was extremely horrible and even thought i had a booking we had to wait far to long hence out tour was cut short thus so absurd as to how so many people are allowed to be in one place. Something only needed to happen out of the ordinary and today anything is possible people would have been killed!!! I want a refund!!! EXTREMELY POORLY ORGANISED!!! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE AT ALL ITS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION AND EXPERIENCE TO HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE IN ONE PLACE AT ANY ONE TIME
