The bus was there on time and we got to the palace with plenty of time to spare. I must have missed that this was not a guided tour, because I would have liked that. I was a bit lost going around the palace myself. Chalk it up to not reading the information correctly!

I liked that during the trip to Versailles there was an explanation of the sites we passed through, it was something I didn't expect, I thought it would just be a transfer. I also saved time in downloading the app at the ticket office because you explained it to us in advance, so I had the opportunity to review the guide and see what I was most interested in to plan my visit.

The Palace of Versailles is absolutely beautiful; however, I'm afraid I wouldn't have been able to get there so easily without the included travel arrangements. I appreciated that we were given some background on the bus that enabled us to visit the Palace without a tour guide. It was overall a great experience and one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you!

A must on a visit to Paris. Schedule several hours for this visit. Time will be short. There is so much to see and there are secluded places that will take time to remember.

Travel in the lap of comfort with stress-free round-trip travel from Paris

Avoid the hassle and stress of planning your travel from Paris to Versailles; with these tickets, your logistics are sorted! Sit back and relax with round-trip bus transfers as you make your way to explore this marvel. Situated 30 mins outside Paris, in the village of Versailles, this elaborate complex once thrived as an epicenter of political power for the Kingdom of France. Begin your visit outdoors as you stroll along the cobblestone grounds, through the beautiful French gardens, and pass by the gorgeous Versailles fountains.

Embrace the grandeur of the Palace

"Your host will escort you to the entrance, where you will get to bypass the long queues and make your way directly into the Palace. Once inside, enjoy access to the most famous places within the Castle with your audioguide for company, providing you insight and information in up to 11 languages! Explore the ornate King and Queen's State Apartments. Learn about the French monarchy and peek into the private lives of King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette.

Next, make your way to the glittering Hall of Mirrors. Connecting the 2 aisles of the palace, the impressive hall has been deemed one of Louis XIV’s best contributions to the Palace. Historically, it is also where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919, ending WWI. Once your visit is winding down, meet up with your host and return to Paris in your own time."
