What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Paris accommodation at the prearranged time. Tour groups are capped at eight. Head to Versailles in the comfort of an air-conditioned minivan, and learn about the palace’s history from your guide. Upon your arrival, if you selected the half-day tour, you receive an audio guide, available in multiple languages, and explore the palace independently. See major attractions such as the Hall of Mirrors, Royal Apartments, and Versailles’ sprawling gardens. If you are on the full-day tour, your arrival begins with a guided tour of the palace interior and its key sights, followed by a 3-course lunch at a cafe on the grounds (included). After lunch, discover Versailles’ gardens, Queen’s Hamlet, and Grand Trianon. If visiting on weekend dates between April and October, your garden tour coincides with a fountain show. The tour concludes in Paris, where you are dropped at your accommodation.

Versailles was beautiful and the audio guides were very informative. Unfortunately it was a long wait to get back to our hotel as Paris city vision was very busy and they seemed to forget to arrange our taxi as paid for.

Dear SanFranciscoBrit, Thank you so much for your review ! Jean Luc will be pleased to read it ! Versailles is always really crowded, which is why we offer the option to go on a small group. It allows to wander more freely inside the palace and enjoy fully. We hope to welcome you again on one of our tours ! Best Regards, Alexia
