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

Make your own way to the Palace of Versailles, a short train journey from the city center, and greet your guide beside the statue of Louis XIV in Place d’Armes. Skip-the-line ticket in hand, bypass the long lines that weave around the courtyard and head straight inside the UNESCO-listed landmark. As you stroll through richly decorated rooms, your guide enthralls children with tales that bring to life the fascinating history of Versailles.

Hear of bizarre royal rituals, momentous feasts and firework displays, and act out naval battles fought by soldiers wearing the suits of armor that decorate the palace. Specifically designed materials enhance children’s experience of the palace, allowing you to ask questions and listen to history-enriched commentary while they remain occupied.

Marvel at the crowning jewels of Versailles’ 2,300 room array: frescoed ceilings, gilded cornices, and elaborate carvings abound in the Hall of Mirrors, the State Apartments, and the King’s Grand Chambers. See, too, the spectacular designs of the Versailles Chateau Gardens, replete with fountains and exotic flora, before you bid your guide farewell and continue to explore independently.

Given the crowds and and long entrance lines, I would not even consider a visit to Versailles without a guided tour.

This is not a family friendly tour. The commentary could not hold the attention of a child or a teenager. Should not be listed as family friendly. The commentary is very dry and needs to be made more exciting. Also it is very overpriced.
