Learn about the history of the residence built for the Louis XIV (the Sun King) and see the magnificent State Apartments of the King, the Hall of Mirrors, the Queen's State Apartments, with a sight in the gardens.

WARNING: From January 2016 and for at least 1 year and a half, the Queen's Estate is closed (restoration). Instead of the Queen's State Apartments, we will visit Mesdames' Apartments (Louis XV's daughters) which have been fully restored and refurnished.

PLEASE NOTE: To avoid any disappointment, ALWAYS check with me BEFORE booking as I might already have a last minute reservation.

A Recent Review of this tour

Isabelle helped steer us through Versailles - despite all of the people there we were able to explore the gardens and fountains in relative peace and enjoy the fountain shows. She provided great context for the grounds as well as the palace. We would have missed many of the unique fountains in the gardens without her guidance and timing.
