Full description
The splendor of Versailles deserves a full day. On this tour enjoy the day, a guide, and lunch in the park.

Starting from anywhere in central Paris, you will be picked up and driven in an air-conditioned minibus to Versailles, where your guide takes you right inside with no waiting. Tour the elegant State Apartments that Louis XIV built around 1670, including separate "grand apartments" for the king and queen, and the 73-meter-long Hall of Mirrors.

When you finish touring the palace's splendid interior, wander through the equally impressive gardens before having lunch in the park near the Grand Canal.

After lunch, your guide will show you the Grand Trianon, a smaller marble palace the king used for less formal occasions. Then discover the Queen's Hamlet, a Norman-style thatched cottage build for Marie Antoinette.

On Sundays the tour includes the "Grand Eaux" water and music show.
