Full description
Travel in the comfort of a fully air-conditioned bus from Paris city center to Versailles, home of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette until the French Revolution in 1789. Your host will be on board the bus and ready to answer any questions you may have.  Be transported back to the Golden Age of France with a trip to the Palace of Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and emblem of French royalty and extravagance. Marvel at the breathtaking royal chateau, transformed by the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV in the 1660s from a hunting lodge.  Your audio guide, available in 11 languages, will enable you to discover the State apartments of the King and Queen, the Royal Chapel and Hall of Mirrors, the epitome of French opulence; three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors line the gold-adorned hall and crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling. After explore the famous gardens of Versailles with access to the Grand and Petit Trianon, and the Estate of Marie Antoinette. Depending on the day and option booked, you will also be able to see either the Musical Garden or Fountain Show. After your visit, you will be taken back to Paris by air-conditioned bus.

    The organization was good Unfortunately upon entering the Palace, the audio guide in Italian did not work. We tried to understand what the problem was by asking the staff but we did not solve it. However very beautiful and also the gardens. Too bad for the rain that caught us unprepared while visiting the gardens, enchanting

    All you have to do is show the voucher that will pick you up by bus at the reception. It was written in other reviews that there was a guide who could speak Japanese, but there was no guide who could speak Japanese on the day I went, so those who are looking for a guide who can speak Japanese should be careful. I think it's better. After arriving in Versailles and entering the group, each person was free to act until time! It was amazing! !!

    Versailles was incredible. The grounds were also much larger and more spread out than I’d realized. Our instructor was very easy to understand and very knowledgeable on various details at Versailles. The tour bus did breakdown before we were taken to Versailles (beyond their control as the buses didn’t appear old) but an alternate form of transportation was quickly found. The tour guide did forget to give us our tickets to the Petite Trianon so we had to walk out there to get them (not a huge deal if you were going anyways).
