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: Jardins du Chateau 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.

My wife and I spent months studying King Louis the XIV. There was a large crowd but it was a Sunday. Everyone moved well through the Castle and we had a guided tour. This is a must see alone with Marie Antoinette's living spaces and farm.

Manuel(?) was absolutely the best tour guide. He had in depth knowledge but was also funny and entertaining. I would go on any tour he provided even if I wasn't interested in the location, LOL. This tour provided us a tour that covered all ofthe major spots and also gave us complete access after the tour was over to explore as we saw fit. The tour guy gave us upgrade RER tickets so we did not need to end the tour where it started but instead anywhere the RER or metro went, so we were able to go directly back to our hotel instead of the starting point. That shows the company spent a little more for us to have an easier time and it was appreciated. Highly recommend!

I loved this tour of Versailles! The tour travels to Versailles by train, which was a quick trip and enjoyable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, shared her passion and expertise, and kept everyone together. Afterwards we walked a bit of the gardens as a group and then we were left to explore the rest of the gardens on our own. This allowed us to spend as little or as much time as we wanted exploring the gardens and then take the train back on our own timetable. When leaving, our train tickets allowed us to travel to the Eiffel Tower stop. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the flexibility it provided!

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.
