A Private Tour of Europe's most famous palace

Visit the most iconic royal residence of Europe with an official lecturer of Versailles. I will guide you through the King's apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Princesses apartments and much more.

No matter the number of participants, you will be equipped with headsets, in order to get the most out of this tour and avoid the crowd noise. Last but not the least, you will visit the gardens, weather permitting, otherwise the royal stables which houses a splendid collection of royal coaches.


From Paris, we will use the train to get to Versailles. Once we get there, we will admire the King's parade apartment, the splendid Hall of Mirrors, the bedchamber of Louis XIV, the very center of the Palace, and last but not the least the hall of Battles (if it is open) or the Princesses apartments.

Finally, we will stroll trough the gardens of Versailles, its groves and foutains. In case of bad weather conditions, instead of the gardens, we will discover the newly refurbished king's stables.

BEWARE: the queens apartment are currently closed for renovation!

A Recent Review of this tour

Nicholas has all the attributes of an excellent guide - deep knowledge, an interest of what his client wants, and a feel for the pace they want for the tour. Plus he is connected to seemingly everyone at Versailles (our tour), which certainly was helpful. A true pro.
