The opulence and intrigues of the royal court


We will enjoy Versailles for the whole day. First, we experience the magnificent palace of the Sun King. There you will see a lot of different halls where kings had parties and leaded ceremonies. I will tell you stories about royal parties, french food and etiquette, fashion and of course about love and intrigues. Stunning interiors, sparkling chandeliers, elegant statues, shining mirrors and gold everywhere! The legendary hall of mirrors, royal bedchamber decorated with 40 kg of gold amazes with their exuberance and luxury.
Walking through the royal garden we will go to the world of Marie Antoinette. We will visit the queen's private residence - Petit Trianon. Enchanting palace fully furnished inside. When you enter it, you have an impression that Marie Antoinette left 5 min ago. Then we follow the queen's steps through the garden to see the farm. The Trianon is so her. Her tastes, her style, her thoughts, her beauty, her life!
She was saying that it is in the small Trianon that she feels like a woman!

Itinerary

I will meet you in a cafe next to the royal chapel. 1 minute far from the entrance. In the main Versailles palace, we will visit the Kings' state apartment - ballrooms, royal bedchambers, a throne room, the hall of mirrors and a dining room. After a short break, we will stroll through the beautiful garden to enjoy another palace - Petit Trianon. Through a small British garden, we will go to the queen's hamlet where we will finish our tour. Then I will lead you to the exit close to the metro station or I will help you to find a taxi.
There are 2 other parts of the main Versailles palace, that I can include in the tour - the apartments of princesses (if they are open). The private kings apartment - under condition of the reservation (365 euro per group up to 25 people, it includes tickets to the main palace, but not tickets to the garden or to Petit Trianon).

A Recent Review of this tour

5 out of 5 stars. If possible we would give her more. Yuliya is very charming and knowledgeable and felt like a friend as soon as she greeted our party of 4. I have done many tours and used many guides and have seen Versailles several times but to see it thru her eyes and learn all the backstories was a true pleasure. I wholeheartedly recommend Yulia for any tour in Paris.
