This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

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.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

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 have a glimpse of the Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens show before returning to Paris.

Guide did not speak English well enough to give an English tour. All 8 of the headsets had static and no one could use them. He needed to give more interesting anecdotes and less info on who is in each painting. The tour is crazy overpriced for a one hour guided tour and we needed more time to walk in the gardens (they are immense). The positives- guide was nice, got us there and took us back, with no problems, attitude or issues and that was great. This tour was way too short with too many negatives for the price charged. Take a taxi and go yourself!

Wonderful experience. I would give 6 out of 5 stars if I could!!! Bo (guide) and Julie (chauffeur) make a great team. Bo made history come alive with her knowledge, spiced with her lively sense of humor and made it so very interesting!! She is very kind and helpful and went beyond her call of duty to arrange a wheelchair for my wife. We enjoyed every moment of this very well organized trip. Thank you very much.

A little fast paced, but nice and efficient, nice van to drive in. At the castle the guide explained the history of each room, the paintings… a lot of knowledge! Great trip!
