Great tour of the palace of Versailles with a licensed guide, expert of French History! Indeed, I will give you a lot of details about the daily life in Versailles under Louis 14th, Louis 15th and Louis 16th.
You will learn about the reasons of the French Revolution of 1789 all connected with Versailles. I will talk about famous Queen Marie-Antoinette and how she lived her last days in Versailles.

Skip the line tickets for the State apartments of king Louis 14th and the Hall of Mirrors. Beware that the Queen's apartments including Marie-Antoinette's bedroom are closed until 2018.

Then we will have a nice walking tour into the gardens.
At weekends and on special Tuesdays (only end of May and June), you will have the chance to attend the fountains show (from April to October).

Important : Tour with driver AND guide. No waste of time in parking lots. No need to go back to the same location. The driver will wait for us down the canal. Relax with your guide during the great fountain show!

A Recent Review of this tour

Great tour and great guide. Marie made reservations so we did not have a long line and wait to get in. Marie was very knowledgable and able to explain all the history involved. Would book Marie again and highly recommend her.
