Full description

Listed for 30 years as a World Heritage Site, the Palace of Versailles is one of the finest achievements of French art of the 17th century. 

The former hunting lodge of Louis the 13th was transformed and enlarged by his son Louis the 14th, who installed his court and his government there in 1682. Before the French Revolution, kings succeeded each other, embellishing each castle to their own. This private 2-hour tour introduces you to the wonders of this iconic palace of the French kings. Hear about the history of this place and its inhabitants, its evolution through the centuries, and its place today in the tourist market. Discover the rooms and objects making this castle an essential place of the French monarchy during your visit to Paris, including the breathtaking Hall of Mirrors and the queen's and king's apartments.

Our guide was a pleasure to spend the day with at Versailles. A naturally born educator, Anna was able to connect a provide a nice presentation. I appreciated her insight and humor as she shared an excellent historical perspective. I highly recommend this fun tour with Anna.

Top équipe !!! no other words than to say big big thank you. We landed our visit a bit too late to versailles and we faced no possibility to entry... we tried Viator, Versailles own website, also TripAdvisor ... no single availabilities. . thanks to GetYourGuide, and the team in charge locally, we managed to book slots and ended up with a super guide ( new one) Flor and enjoyed it soooo much. for all of you, we know Versailles by heart, we are member of Versailles academy and go to concert every month, we just did not realized that this week end would be that busy ( covid passed) and got caught by surprised. we will always remember the reactivity of AKOPSO for finding a Guide at the very last moment and we would like to thank Flor for her capabilities to adapt to our diversified group. it was at the end an incredible visit and very much sensitive one. Flor is great and made us feel as if we were 200 years back. than you so much to all of you.

Wenn man sich das können möchte, dann auf jeden Fall die höheren Kosten akzeptieren. Die Wartezeit bevor man überhaupt in das Château Versailles kommt, betragen 2-3 Std. Im Frühjahr / Sommer auf jeden Fall die Gartenanlage genießen . Die Information während das Besuchs sind absolut ausreichend. Sinnvoll wäre es sich im Vorfeld die Geschichte um die Französische Revolution anzusehen.
