Private Tours

Led by specialist tour guides, you will discover the diversity and scale of a palace that bears the marks of eight centuries of royal and imperial residence.

Book your private tour to enter get up close to the rulers and explore spaces usually closed to the public.

Private tours are possible every day of the week outside the castle’s usual opening hours. We offer the services of French and foreign languages guides to your guests for one hour to one hour and a half in groups of 20 to 30 people.

Custom made guided tours are offered during the castle’s opening hours. For more information visit Guided Tours.

What we love:

  • Viewing the Imperial Theatre after passing through the Grand Apartments
  • The unrivalled elegance of Marie-Antoinette's Turkish boudoir
  • A glass of champagne served at the end of the tour
