Skip the Line Versailles Chateau and Gardens Tour

Board the train that will take you through the French countryside and arrive in Versailles to meet your licensed tour guide and small group. Avoid the crowds and skip the line as you pass the chateau's golden gates and slip in through a side entrance. Your guide will regale you with tales of the French royalty as you explore the palace where they once passed their days in leisurely splendor. The sublime beauty of this chateau is matched only by its rich history. Slip back in time to the 17th century when King Narai sent his Siamese embassy to meet with the royal family as your guide leads you through the opulent Hall of Mirrors in which they were received. Say goodbye to your guide as your tour comes to and end and wander the gardens that were once the domain of Marie Antoinette at your leisure.
