A half day tour to the most flamboyant Chateau of France.
Enjoy a half day small group (limited to 50 participants) day trip to the Palace of Versailles with pick up and drop off from Paris City center. Meeting point location is close to the Eiffel tower. First, we will meet you at the centrally located agency before the tour begins. You will then meet your guide and board your A/C coach that will take you to the Palace of Versailles.
Chateau de Versailles is without a doubt one of the most unique Chateau visits of France. This 3 star rated Michelin travel guide historical site is considered to be the symbol of perfection when it comes to Classical Architecture. The largest known Palace in the world was, from the late 17th century until the French Revolution, a permanent construction site. The Chateau is also a symbol of the power of Royalty from Sun King Louis XIV to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Today, the Chateau as well as the whole domain are gradually regaining their original splendor thanks to immense restoration works.
After a short driver from Paris, reach Versailles. Here, you will have access to fast-track entry, allowing you to jump the queue. Thanks to your accompanying host, you will also be able to obtain your audio guides rapidly. At last it will be time to begin your tour of the Palace and hear about the History of the Palace & the many stories that have made Versailles Palace what it is. The visit will take you through the State apartments and beautiful rooms of the King and Queen, the Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors and so much more. Outside, you will also have time to explore the French style Gardens designed by André Le Nôtre. The gardens of Versailles are considered to be the best example of French Style formal Gardens.
After the visit, return to your departure point in Paris and end of our services.

Very informative and relaxed tour – Our guide was great and gave us ample time to tour and relax. She was very knowledgeable and stayed on time.
Efficient and knowledgeable – Friendly, knowledgeable and efficiently organised. We loved the fact that Alain, our guide, was as excited about visiting the estates as we were. We have used them twice already and will certainly do so again.
