VIP Behind-the-Scenes Versailles Tour

Highlights / General details After a short train journey to Versailles, you will spend the morning learning the history of the palace while walking in the beautiful Royal Gardens, your tour timed perfectly to catch the fountain show. Your guide will lead you to the Grand Canal for some free time where you can hire a rowboat, have a picnic lunch or visit the local palace café. Following lunch, enter the world famous palace of Versailles through a special side entrance with absolutely no waiting time. While other hallways in the museum are crowded with thousands of tourists, you will enjoy the serenity of being in the King & Queen's private residence with just our small group. This area is past the velvet rope line and is inaccessible to the general public. You will explore the fascinating history of life at the royal court with your Versailles-licensed guide as you are given privileged access to the historic private rooms including Louis XVI's library, the royal dining hall, the chapel or the opera house, and the luxurious private game room.
