Versailles Questions

Does this tour include entry to the Trianons and/or Marie Antoinette's Hameau?

The Versailles Chateau and Gardens Tour visits the formal gardens in the morning and the main palace around noon. If you would like to visit the extended gardens you have the choice to do so in the afternoon on your own. Your garden ticket is valid all day. Tickets to the Trianons and the Hameau can be bought at the Petit Trianon.

I am not accustomed to walking long distances or I have impaired mobility. Can I still attend the tour?

Apart from the train ride to Versailles, you will be spending most of your time on the tour on your feet. The gardens of Versailles are a highlight of the visit and we will be strolling through as many of the best sections as possible in the morning section of the tour. For this reason we recommend you wear appropriate footwear and that you are comfortable walking 5kms/3miles over the course of the tour.
