The Palace of Versailles is a must-see for tourists to Paris, but all too often the long lines, huge crowds, and large tour groups can dull the imagination of its youngest visitors. Ensure the wonder isn’t lost on your young travelers with one of our Versailles family tours, expertly navigating all the logistics while bringing this fascinating palace to life.

You and your children will start being treated like royalty in central Paris from where your 'carriage' – a fully air-conditioned private coach – will take you and your small group of 20 people or less to Versailles. Princes and princesses shouldn’t have to wait in line, and your group will enjoy Skip-the-Line Access to the Palace, bypassing the long queues snaking around the courtyard.

Upon entry, your expert guide will weave the fascinating history of Versailles into a fantastic narrative sure to spark the imagination of your little tourists. Watch as they are enthralled by tales of mock naval battles on the Grand Canal, incredible fireworks exploding over the Palace, and bizarre Royal rituals which included the King being woken up and dressed in front of an audience of courtiers.

Life in the Palace truly comes alive as your guide skillfully combines commentary with the activity materials exclusively designed for this tour, ensuring that children have a fully immersive Royal experience. However, parents will also benefit from the tour as your guide is a fully licensed professional, expertly versed in all aspects of Versailles and ready to answer any questions you may have.

Your guided visit covers all of the most famous of Versailles’ 2,300 rooms – the iconic Hall of Mirrors, the lavish Grand Apartments, as well as its manicured gardens. Your tour will take you and your small explorers on a journey from the pinnacle of royal power to its dramatic demise during the French Revolution.

Your adventure will wind down in the gardens. Your guide will lead you through the story of the lush greenery and the ornate fountains which you may see timed perfectly to classical music, before leaving you to enjoy a leisurely stroll by yourself – as the Royals once did – before returning to your coach and modern-day Paris.

Join City Wonders on this dedicated family visit to Versailles and let your children’s imagination soar as they become King and Queen for a day! Check out our full list of Family tours in Paris.
