A full day visit to the Chateau de Versailles in Marie-Antoinette footsteps
Visiting Versailles is a unique experience and the best way to make the past live again. The Chateau, its gardens and the incredibly beautiful Domain of Marie-Antoinette are waiting for you to discover the real life and history of the French monarchy.
Follow me in this journey along the centuries, from the "grand siecle" of Louis XIV, the Sun king, the man who created the splendor of Versailles and its incredible hall of mirrors, to the 18th century of Marie-Antoinette, the beheaded queen, the woman who dreamed about a simple life in the countryside.
The Royal apartments, the great fountains and the hidden grooves, the quaint Petit Trianon with its English garden and the Hameau de la Reine, a dreamy farmers village will not have any more secret.
Have you already visited the Royal Apartment or do you think the Chateau is going to be too crowded? Choose to visit only the Marie-Antoinette domain and discover an oasis of calm, beauty, luxe full of atmosphere and charm.

We scheduled 2 tours with Sara and were very happy with both. The Versailles tour was interesting, and on a crowded July day we skipped the lines, which was big. We also were able to tour the garden in a way where we saw many of the fountains and got explanations on all we saw. For our tour we met outside the Palace, were directed to area in the rooms in the Palace where we could get explanations and see all and we were away from most of the crowds. We recommend this tour and enjoyed working with Sara.
