Without thinking much, I scoured the internet and found a guided tour of the Palace of Versailles and booked it. I was so happy to have booked it that I didn't even read the disclaimer before closing the site, so I went to the site without knowing where to gather to be escorted. I arrived at the palace close to the entrance time, so I hurried to get my backpack checked and headed to where there was a long queue of people. At that moment, a call from France pinged on my phone and I answered it immediately. The guide was calling me because I didn't show up at the meeting point. From then on, I was relieved because I realized that I was in good hands. I was able to go straight into the palace without having to wait in line because everything had been arranged with the palace authorities in advance. The guide, although in English, was very good at explaining things and gave me an overview of the Palace of Versailles.

I enjoyed the skip the line access, small tour group that got to see sites not part of the usual entrance experience. One of our audio pieces of equipment didn't work very well and our guide dismissed our concern, but otherwise he was insightful.

The guide assisting us to get inside and the one showing us the private apartment of the king were really professional and helpful.

The place is very nice, worth visiting. Unfortunately, the guide turned out to be unpleasant, at the very beginning she unsadabie referred to us with strange pretensions that we spoke with each other in our native language, and threatened that she would be very angry if we were not polite. Very strange behavior from her.

Explore King's Chambers with this Headout exclusive tour

Find yourself zipping past the long lines at Entrance A and Entrance B! Headout ticket holders are prioritized before all other groups at the Palace of Versailles- ensuring you get ample time to explore the structure spread over 800-hectare

Enjoy this exclusive guided tour of the King’s Private Apartments with the palace's official English, Spanish, or French-speaking guide. Peek into the lives of French royalty with this tour that is generally closed to the public. The King's son, Louis XV had the Clock Room built inside the apartments. The room’s floor is a clock, displaying the day of the week, month, year, and the lunar quarter. It also features a crystal sphere depicting the solar system. You will also come across other interesting places like the Porcelain Dining Room, Louis XVI’s Library, and the Games Room, all of which were later added to the apartments.

Tour the Famed Hall of Mirrors

This tour also includes a visit to the Hall of Mirrors. Famous for being the venue of the “Treaty of Versailles”, it is one of the most iconic attractions in France. The hall also consists of artworks depicting famous historical events including: “The king governs by Himself”, “Reception of the Doge of Genea”, and “The Siamese Embassy."

Inaugurated as the largest concert hall, the Royal Opera is considered to be a spectacular work of architecture by Ange-Jacques Gabriel. Imagine the grandeur of past celebrations as you admire its lavish ballroom and more. If you visit the Royal Chapel, you'll get to see the Antiquity-inspired architecture and The Holy Trinity fresco in the vaulted ceiling. Upgrade your tickets to passport full access and explore the entire Palace of Versailles, including the Estate of Trianon, the temporary Exhibitions, and the Musical Fountain Shows.
