    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

    Arriving from Paris in a comfortable private bus, accompanied by your expert guide, you’ll strut past the lines outside the Palace of Versailles in true royal fashion. As your guide shows you around a carefully curated selection of the palace’s 700 rooms, you’ll hear stories of the Sun King, Louis XIV, his successors, their queens, mistresses, and courtiers – including Marie Antoinette and other notable figures. Versailles had its heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries, when the Sun King elevated Louis XIII’s humble hunting lodge into the official seat of the French court – and 300 years later, the palace has lost little of its glamorous excess.

    The Gardens of the Palace of Versailles were designed by master gardener André Le Nôtre and court painter Charles le Brun, not as a respite from the palace, but as an extension of it – with every bit as much opulence (and intrigue) as the interior. Depending on the day, your tour of the Gardens may include the Musical Fountain Show (where fountains dance in perfect time to classical music) or Musical Gardens (where music accompanies your tour through the idyllic glades). Even if not, with your guide’s help, you’ll discover fountains, statues and secret groves scattered throughout the vast French formal estate.

    Following the guided tour, you’ll have a free hour to revisit the most captivating sights – or find new ones just for yourself. Surrounded by luxury, the only hardship is deciding how to follow an experience this spectacular.

      Great tour led by Manny! Only issue was waiting in the rain for the Skip-the-Line tickets, but I believe it was due to the fault of the palace staff. Manny was excellent and would definitely recommend this tour to others!

      We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Versailles Palace with our guide Christina! She really was amazing ! I have 3 kids which were extremely interested in what she was saying about the history, the palace etc! They didn’t wine at all during the tour which is quite unlike them! Christine was a fantastic tour guide! I would definitely recommend her to anyone !!!!
      Unfortunately it was verrrrry HOT that day. I would recommend that you make sure to bring lots of water to keep you hydrated as the lines in the cafes can be quite long!

      So very pleased we did this tour, as it included fast-track entry into the Palace. Be prepared for different guides as you progress through - both in the coach, and at the Palace. Our guide at the Palace was knowledgeable and knew the routine of the visit which made it easier for us as we waited our turn to enter. The interior of the Palace was magnificent, and the gardens were wonderful. However, we were fortunate to have a different guide in the coach on our way home - this lady lived and breathed Paris and showed us the many wonderful sites we passed on the way home. Highly recommend this tour.

      One Day isn’t enough to see Versailles. It would take days to see and enjoy the entire Palace. The tour guide was very informative and spoke excellent English.

      This tour was everything that was advertised and I highly recommend it. There was plenty of time to tour the Palace and Gardens and even walk over to a nearby pub for a beer before boarding our bus back to Paris. Two thumbs up on this tour.

      Adam was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting and fun. I plan on doing more research about Louis XIV after taking the tour with Adam. Skipping the line was well worth it - and the palace and gardens were gorgeous. A+ to Adam for his stories, sense of humor, and great personality!!

      We were able to skip a HUGE line with this tour which was quite valuable. The tour itself was full of facts and our guide was very friendly and able to answer lots of questions. Things are a bit crowded in the palace but that's expected and our guide did a nice job navigating and giving us ample time to take pictures and explore. After, the gardens were great to see but so much to cover so you either have to a plan of what to see of casually roam through. Make sure you leave enough time to return to the bus though. All in all this was an excellent tour I would highly recommend to others.

      Great tour of the palace if you are limited in time. Saw the best of the best of the palace and a ticket to the gardens to explore in your own. Guide was very knowledgeable and a wealth of information. Wish I had longer to stay.

      Disappointing tour at Versailles - still rated it five stars, since the issue had nothing to do with the tour, but the crowds at Versailles made it difficult to enjoy the afternoon. 90 degree day and the Palace was so overcrowded that it was difficult to enjoy.

      As to the tour itself, buide was knowledgeable, meeting point was easy to find, tour bus left promptly on time. Everything within the contraol of the local operator, City Wonders, was very good. I would just highly recommend a morning tour we did the afternoon maybe it is less crowded and you can actually enjoy Versailles in the AM.

      This was amazing! Our guide was very respectful of other tours but made sure we got front and centre to see what he wanted to show us and his explanations were clear and entertaining. Also, skip the line is a no brainer!
