Let's visit the magnificent Versailles palace and gardens together!


Versailles is the dearest project of Louis 14th. Surrounded by skilled and innovative artists, he created one of the most astonishing estates in the world, composed of a magnificent palace and it's huge garden.

Let's visit Versailles in the most comfortable way possible. First, I will arrange private transportation for you in a comfortable 7 seat van. Also, I will make a prior reservation, which gives a skip the line access to the palace. Let's leave a long, 2-hours waiting line for the others;)

Visiting Versailles with me, you will certainly look at a palace and its gardens, but you will see much more. You will understand that this royal domain was an instrument of power, a setting for numerous love affairs, intrigues and conflicts, a place of major historical events such as the French Revolution or Versailles Treaty. I will tell you little stories to make the Big History more familiar.

People say the last queen and king left Versailles in 1789. Be sure that I will bring them back for our tour.

Itinerary

We will visit together different sites, as follows:
-The Palace of Versailles outside (Small and Great Stables, The Marble Courtyard, the Golden Gate of Versailles)
-The Palace of Versailles inside (The Royal Chapel, The Great Apartments of the King, The Hall of Mirrors, the Coronation of Napoleon Room)
-The gardens (Great perspective and Great Canal, the Orangerie, few hidden gardens called "bosquets" (if open), few fountains such as Latone fountain.

Please note that the Palace is closed on Monday. Also, the best days for the tour are Saturday and Sunday from April to October because fountains in the gardens are operating.

This tour is also available for a whole day including Grand Trianon (a palace built for Louis 14thfavorite), Petit Trianon (a palace where Marie-Antoinette lived) and Hameau de la Reine (Marie-Antoinette's private estate). I also have a licence giving access to the Private Apartments of Versailles that you can visit in VIP mode. Don't hesitate to contact me for further details.
