Go back in time and see how French royalty lived as you take a tour of Versailles.
Versailles is more than a palace surrounded with beautiful gardens. It also has a huge park where one can discover two lovely castles named Grand and Petit Trianons, former summer residences for the Kings who wanted to rest and forget about the "Etiquette" of the Court.
The tour starts off with a guided visit to the State Apartments of the Palace (Hall of Mirrors and the Queen's Bedroom) and free time to take a walk in the beautiful gardens.
A short city sightseeing tour on an open top deck bus follows, then lunch (drinks included) at the park near the Grand Canal.
During the afternoon, you will visit the Grand Trianon and take a stroll in the park leading to Marie- Antoinette's Hamlet, the fancy farm where she loved to welcome her best friends and play at shepherding. You will also view of the newly restored Theatre.

Lunch at the park
Our Guide - Marian - was very good and knowledgable and interesting. The meal was good though packed in a bit - we were not aware it was included in the price when booking. The gardens were suitable for our elderly member of the party who needed a wheel chair.

very good bus, good guide info during tour, good time planning
Excellent customer service
Francois knowledge was to intense for the audience, the pace of the tour of the Trianon was relentless, there was no allowance for... the elderly or less fit, there was no choice of food, only red wine was available whet wine was a extra cost, Francois ate alone and remained aloof
I would do again but with a different guide
The desc<x>ription of the tour did not state that it was an extensive walking tour. From your desc<x>ription I was un...der the assumption that after touring Versailles in the morning we would have a drive through the town and go to lunch by the canal and then on to the Trianons. Nowhere did it state that we would be walking from one location to the other. Had I known I would not have booked the afternoon portion of the trip. Everyone is not able to do extensive walking---it should be clearly stated. more
