One of the best well known château in the world.

I am a fully qualified French Tourist Guide, accredited by the French government, Ministry of Tourism, and so allowed to be your guide inside the château of Versailles.
Versailles was built in the XVII° c. and thanks to Louis XIV France became renowned all around the world. In the XVII c. France was to become not only a great economic power but was also to begin the start of an era of great prosperity in which arts flourished.
Versailles at the forefront of developments in French architecture, furniture and fashion, was to inspire many countries throughout the world.
Allow me to lead you through the history and the daily life of Versailles in the XVII th and XVIII th c. .
For me to be able to guide you inside the châteaut it is important to make a booking with the Château de Versailles.
We shall try to get one once the booking through ToursbyLocals is made. The earlier you book, the easiest is to get the day and hour you prefer.



It takes from 1/2 to 1 hour to get from Paris to Versailles by train.

During the visit, not only you can enjoy the grandiose ensemble of Versailles Palace, symbol of the King's Power and of the artistic and culturel french influence all around the world, that owns its existence principally to Louis XIV, but you can also appreciate the magnificent gardens that is a real piece of art.

If you cancel, they don't refund, in this case you will have to pay me back what I paid to get the booking.

What’s Extra

But as we need a reservation for me to be allowed to guide you inside the Château, that booking is paid with the entrances tickets, that I buy for you and you pay me back when we meet.
For adults, don't buy tickets in advance, as the booking covers the entrances of the Château and gardens, .
Normally between April and October, on Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday, you pay an entrance to get into the gardens, as the fountains are working at certain hours of the day.
If in the group we have children, they don't pay the entrances to the Château bu they must pay for the gardens. We shall buy their tickets in a priority entrance.
