  • 13:00 Check-in
  • 13:15 Tour departs & Escorted train ride to Versailles
    Versailles_VIP_selections - 02 Skip the Line access takes you straight past the famously long lines and through a reserved entrance, from where we’ll take our first steps into this hidden world - King’s private apartments. You’ll feel miles away from the throngs of tourists, unaware of the existence of these concealed rooms.
  • Discover how the royalty went about their daily lives
    INT_Red-Room With the insights and fascinating stories of your local guide, you’ll discover how the royalty went about their daily lives when nobody was watching. With such restricted access today, and none of the crowds of the main rooms, these apartments remain as lavishly furnished as they would have been.
  • Access to stunning Opera House or the private Chapel (Both closed to the public)
    INT_Corridor Access is so restricted that the itinerary will adapt and change each time. At the end of our visit we’ll reappear through a hidden door into the public apartments to find the crowds there again, just as the Kings and Queens would have in their day!
  • And more
    This unique and carefully designed itinerary also includes access to the main apartments, including the spectacular Hall of Mirrors. Of course, no visit would be complete without a guided stroll in the magnificent gardens. At the end of the visit you will be free to wander as long as you like.
