This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Versailles, Yvelines, Ile-de-France
Meet your tour coordinator in central Paris. Board a bus bound for Versailles, and on arrival at Versailles meet your guide and head straight for the palace's reserved entrance, skipping the long general entry line. Find yourself in the King's private apartments, where your group will be the only one allowed into each room.
Learn about the daily lives of Kings Louis XV and XVI, their queens and their mistresses. These lavish private rooms remained furnished just as they were at the height of their use, preserved by the stringent and highly regulated access schedule. See art collections, personal furniture and family portraits as you listen to your guide outline the difference between the royalty's daily public and private lives. In Versailles’ time you could only enter these private apartments with the permission of the King.
In addition to special access to the château's hidden rooms, explore the main apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and take a guided stroll through the lush formal gardens. At the end of the visit you will be free to wander as long as you like. Return to Paris by bus.

Comfy bus met us on time at Tracadero and getting to Versailles early was definitely the way to go. Loved the jump the line access and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was definitely worth having a peek into areas the rest of ticket holders couldn't go. And the gardens were everything you'd expect - green, lush and beautiful and we were given plenty of time to explore them on our own. I think a full day would have been too long so this half day option was perfect. We were back in the city by early afternoon with plenty of time left in the day to do other things.
