Description

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.

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.

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. more

Our guide was Stephanie and she was absolutely brilliant! Her organisation was excellent and her commentary was perfect. Her knowl...edge was astounding and we really enjoyed the tour and in fact, have recommended it to all our friends! Thank you so much. more

Caitlin

It was a lot of walking. I wish we could have taken the train or bus from the big house to the little house. While the walk was fl...at, it was still a long way without much to see. more

diane

This full day tour provides very comprehensive coverage of the Palace, both Trianons and the hamlet and all are really lovely and ...must sees. The skip the queue was very welcome, especailly at the Palace. Our guide was delightful, very knowdgeable and friendly. The lunch was very good and it gave us the chance to talk to other people. more

Rae-Anne

marcos

Excellent customer service

Stuart

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
