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.

It was certainly a sight to see . We picked up the van at a convenient location in Paris and was dropped off at the same place . We walked through Versailles on our own but could listen to the audio tour . I do wish our driver gave us some information as we were driving to and from . He did not speak to us at all . I am glad we did the half day tour.

It saved me a lot of time by taking me to Versailles. Being in Versailles for a day allowed us to visit all the places we wanted to see. It would have been better if you told me to bring earphones in advance if I was going to download the app instead of the Japanese guide.

The trip to Versailles was great! Can't say anything for the price. Everything worked smoothly. It doesn't matter whether it's the bus ride or admission to the castle. If you really want to see everything (the entire garden) in its entirety, you should rather spend the whole day there. It is definitely worth it! But for half a day it was more than worth it and you could see most of it. Only to recommend :)
