The itinerary

Be sure not to miss out on the stunning Musical Fountain Show that takes place every weekend from April 2nd to October 29th 2019. This delight will be part of every Versailles tour for those lucky enough to be visiting at this time!

Your VIP exploration starts with stunning interiors: the Grands Appartements followed by the dazzling Hall of Mirrors with its decadent chandeliers and spectacular views on the Royal Gardens.

But no King or Queen wants to stay around the People for too long, so your private dedicated guide will escort you out behind the scenes, through some secret doors and into the Private King Bedrooms where the royals spent their most private moments. You’ll hear the most amazing stories about the Cabinet Noir, the King’s very own secret service office!

From the King’s Private Council Room to the rooms once used as royal washrooms, it’s an unrivalled glance into life as a monarch of France. Prepare to be overwhelmed by some of the most ornate furniture in the world including Louis XV’s desk and the unbelievably ingenious Passemant Pendulum Clock, which needed 36 years of the most prestigious artisan works, viewable only to those on the Prestige experience!

And the fun doesn’t end there — another delight reserved especially for you will be private entry into the Royal Chapel or the Royal Opera.

And if that wasn’t quite enough, on certain days you’ll be able to take in the spectacle of the Musical Water Fountains Show — glittering celebrations of the garden’s ornate fountains and grand basins. Yet another reason to join us on this one-of-a-kind experience!
