VIP Behind-the-Scenes Versailles Tour

This favorite spot of Parisian aristocracy has enjoyed centuries of admiration for its charming chateau and beautifully manicured gardens. Begin your tour with your licensed guide and wander the grounds that were once the exclusive domain of the royals and nobles of France. Sit down to lunch at a local restaurant where you will dine on meals prepared with vegetables from the garden of King Louis XIV. Slip into the palace through a side entrance with your small group and avoid the crowded public rooms. Marvel at the grandeur of the Hall of Mirrors where the royal family once made daily appearances. Follow their footsteps and discover the king's personal library and the private game room where Marie Antoinette once entertained guests over card games. As the tour comes to an end, you're free to remain and wander the grounds at your leisure.
