Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

A breathtaking product of 17th-century France, the Palace of Versailles sits on top of the château, hunting lodge and original hunting grounds of King Louis XIII. His son Louis XIV eventually took over and commissioned the building of what the world now knows as the Palace of Versailles. Louis XIV even destroyed the nearby village for the expansion of the Château de Versailles. Containing over 2,000 rooms and 2,000 windows, the Palace of Versailles is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The Hall of Mirrors, Chateau de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

Measuring almost 70 yards long and adorned with 357 mirrors, the Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the palace. The mirrors in this room were designed to reflect light and protect the walls from smoke. Only a few candles were required in order to reflect candlelight throughout the entire room. The Treaty of Versailles, which marked the end of World War I, was signed in the Hall of Mirrors on June 28th, 1919.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

After touring the palace, you’ll experience the spellbinding Gardens of Versailles. Inspiring gardens all over the world, the meticulously-manicured Gardens of Versailles occupy a total area of almost 2,000 acres. Thousands of trees were transported from all over France by entire regiments of the French army to create these gardens. The gardens contain over 400 sculptures and 1,400 fountains.

I did not know that the tour included a transfer via bus from Paris to Versalles, so I took a cab to get there. Contacted tour operator and they were AMAZING. They helped clear things up in a minute, and I was able to catch the whole group at the entrance. Our guide (Anastasia) was superb. She told us so many different stories and secrets, our twin teens (12) were extremely interested. Definitely a tour to book; please bare in mind that transfer IS included.

I highly recommend this tour. As someone who is not a history buff, hearing all the stories behind and about everything elevated this experience way above if I had just walked through on my own. Veronique was a FABULOUS tour guide, interesting , funny, and engaging. I truly feel like I enjoyed this so much more bc of her. Also skip the line is absolutely the way to go. I couldn't believe how long it was. What a waste of precious vacation time to stand in it needlessly due to poor planning. We walked right by and in. The metro at the section to go to Versailles is closed for construction, so was very glad to have the tour bus. Stress free very enjoyable afternoon.

Everything worked well and we got off to a good start. Our guide was knowledgable; but the tour itself was difficult. There were so many people. We could not always hear everything she had to say on our receivers. It was not her fault. It was just such a crowded venue and not all that enjoyable.

We booked a private tour of Versailles. The experience with the agency was poor: the guide was very late and the response from the agency was slow and careless, wasting our time and creating needless worry on what should have been a relaxing and special experience. It made it more challenging that the only contact is via a US number (despite the tour being in France). We were about to give up and buy our own tickets when the guide luckily turned up. On the flip side, the guide herself (Katarina) was very good - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, good with kids, and spent extra time with us in the gardens. We would certainly recommend Katarina.
