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.

We had the most wonderful day at Versailles with our Amazing guide Zara. So glad we chose the small group (only 6 in our tour group) all day with lunch tour. Everything from the very informative guide Zara to the Amazing Palaces and Stunning Gardens with a very lovely lunch near the boathouse was PERFECT! Highly recommend this small group all day tour with lunch. Our guide Zara was amazing and with her very informative and clear skills we really got the best out of this tour. Well worth choosing this tour option. We always use GYG and have always been so so impressed.

Beautiful tour

The tour of Versailles was awesome. The inclusion of the small palace & village is a must. The included meal was underwhelming. The tour guide was personable & knowledgeable. The biggest negative was the guide forgot to give us the tickets for the gardens. Fortunately we found most of our group. I called get your guide but only got a recording in French. Another in our group called viator & got an English speaking person. They located the colleague to our guide who gave us garden access tickets. The negative was this delay ate up our time in the garden. When we reconnected with our guide at the meal her solution to more garden time was to skip our meal. She wasn’t very apologetic for her blunder. Overall it was a good day trip. Seeing Versailles is a must when in France.
