Your guide will take you back to the Golden Age of France during a morning or afternoon trip to the Palace of Versailles. The chateau and gardens count among the most prestigious monuments of the world’s artistic heritage, and are certainly the finest and most complete achievement of 17th century French art. Former residence of the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV, this sumptuous royal palace was home to three of France’s most illustrious Kings for over 100 years. The guided tour of the palace includes the State Apartments of the King and Queen, Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors, a richly decorated gallery which boasts 357 mirrors, french bay windows and crystal chandeliers.

At the end of your visit there is free time to discover the famous gardens à la française ; a 2,000 acre park designed by André le Notre with its magnificent groves, statues, and fountains. Depending on the day and time of the year you join the tour, you will have the opportunity to catch the Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens show before returning to Paris.

We had three days in Paris, and we really wanted to see Versailles. Highly recommend the guided tour, as it affords the chance to ask questions. We had free time to explore the gardens and a non hurried pace through the palace. Our guide, Isabelle, was terrific.

Michaela was our guide and she was great! She specialized in military history and was VERY knowledgeable. She did a great job of navigating our group through the crowds, and was kind enough to drop us off at Musee D'Orsay afterwards due to the rain! Highly recommend her for this tour.

This is a great tour. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and cold so we did not get to see much of the gardens. However, the tour of the palace was breathtaking.
