Explore on of the world’s most famous castles: Versailles, with this exclusive Skip the Line tour! With this all-inclusive small group tour you will explore the footsteps of Marie-Antoinette, the palace, the extraordinay gardens, the secret rooms and more, with an expert English-speaking guide. 

Have you ever wondered what it might have felt like to live in the Palace of Versailles? To explore one of the world’s most famous royal residences and have secret doors opened just for you with an ancient key? Walk in the footsteps of one of history’s most romanticized queens, Marie Antoinette. Spend a day in the magnificent Palace of Versailles, in the company of an English-only speaking expert local guide, who will bring to life the stories of the lavish courts under the French kings, their queens and mistresses. Gain access to secret parts of the palace that most others never see, visit rooms locked and exclusively opened to our small group on this one-of-a-kind tour specifically designed by City Wonders Palace of Versailles experts.

Learn how the change in the lifestyle and the public perception of the monarchy eventually led to their downfall. See the secret corridors behind her bedroom where Marie Antoinette fled from the revolutionaries who finally stormed the palace and put an end to the extravagant court of Versailles and, indeed, the French royal family themselves.

Beyond the palace’s private locked rooms, in addition to the hidden corridors and staircases, you will also have free time to enjoy lunch at your leisure. All tours, access and roundtrip train transfers are included, so all you have to do is enjoy your travel through time on this one-of-a-kind tour developed for you by City Wonders Palace of Versailles experts.

Great price for a great service. The people at the offices where we picked up our pass were friendly and helpful, and the pass was very useful in getting around town and into the attractions we wanted to see. I'd purchase it again if I was returning to Paris!
