Exklusivt för Viator: slottet i Versailles och Marie-Antoinettes Trianon från Paris
Efter ankomsten till staden går du direkt till drottning Marie-Antoinettes idylliska by. I 1682 utsågs ägorna till officiell kunglig residens, och Ludvig XIV inrättade så småningom en separat bostad åt sin hustru, drottning Marie-Antoinette. Som ett intyg på hans vidlyftiga smak liknar hennes hem en sagoby. Du har cirka en timme och femton minuter på dig att utforska byn och gårdshuset och besöka Le Petit Trianon, hennes stiliga privata palats.
Möt upp vid bussen och åk till slottet i Versailles. Detta fantastiska palats, grundat i början av 1600-talet, byggdes officiellt som ett kungligt jaktslott för kung Ludvig XIII. Under Ludvig XIV:s regering adderades påkostade, omslutande trädgårdar och en rad extravaganta tillskott till slottet, som omvandlade den till ett av världens mest dekadenta palats. Det vidsträckta barockslottet finns med på UNESCO:s världsarvslista med och har århundraden av historia som matchar dess prakt. Gå förbi palatsets långa inträdesköer med din snabbinträdesbiljett och ta en rundtur till fots. Utforska offentliga rum som kapellet, kungens praktfulla bostad och spegelgalleriet – där takkronorna av kristall hänger från takfresker och väggarna är täckta med förgyllda speglar.
Beskåda de härliga interiörerna och gå sedan ut för att utforska Versailles trädgårdar i din egen takt. Efter en promenad i trädgårdarna träffar du din guide och reser tillbaka till centrala Paris där rundturen avslutas med avlämning tidigt på kvällen.

Wonderful tour. Our guide was exceptional with her knowledge and history of the palace. The scope and size of the palace was so amazing. I would definitely visit again and recommend the tour to friends.
This experience is not one I wish to repeat: We were dropped about 1km from our destination and when we got to what we thought would be the Trianon we were told it was a 20 minute walk. The toilets were miles away and had to be accessed before security. There was no time for this. When we proceed to the palace we had to wait to enter because of security requirements. Inside the palace the curtains were drawn so it was hard to see anything. Our guide raced passed the Hall of Mirrors as if it was not there. Our guide also talked incessantly and long and not alwasys to the point. My sister was put in a wheelchair as she does not walk well. Our guide managed to lose her at the end of the tour. I was sent to the garden by myself. Don't think you will see the large garden at Versailles. A small back section was fenced off with no flowers in the gardens - only low box hedges. Not worth looking at. Finally found my sister - but without help of guide. Not an enjoyable afternoon at all
More impressive than I thought it would be. Now we know where Henry VIII got all of his ideas.
Highly recommend. You do not want to go to Versailles and not have a guide. This is such a busy place and to have a guide take you through the grounds and provide you with the history of the palace is well worth taking this trip. Marie-Antoinette's Trianon was amazing. A little oasis not too far from the Palace. The Palace itself was a Cinderella story on steroids. The opulence and decadence is beyond words. The grounds, fountains were breathtaking. Everything about this trip was amazing. Versailles is about 25 to 30 minutes from Paris. This tour with Viator is done so well. You have a professional guide, who was amazing! She knew how to traverse the Palace, she took photos for us in the Hall of Mirrors and she knew her history. This was an exceptional tour and using Viator made it so great! Recommend 100
This is an excellent tour especially for a person with a time limit. You take a van to the Petit Trianon and have time to tour the building and the gardens on your own. You do need to walk down the driveway and back so people with mobility issues would find the time constraint a problem. You then reboard your van and go to Versailles proper and tour with a guide. There is a small time at the end to see the gardens etc. I would recommend that people with the time and ability to tour on your own do so but this is a wonderful option for those for whom figuring out the train schedules and tour schedules on their own would be problematic.
So our guide was full of positive energy but seemingly not as much French History. It was more of a monologue of her life, sort of a one woman show. We had a bus trip out of Paris - very little information delivered - missing a great opportunity as we drove past a number of monuments. Versailles was pretty crowded - definitely avoid Saturday's if you can. But besides the occasional Buzzfeed like factoids there was no history, no story and no real value add of a tour guide. The priority access helped but I left knowing almost nothing more than quick glimpses in the palace provided. Having just been on a different tour that AM with a great tour guide the difference was all too apparent. This guide talked more and delivered far less. We also were pretty rushed - not sure how much of that is normal which they should plan for and how much was unique.
We were a group of 3 women. We loved the tour but there was not much time to see the Trianon. By the time we got back there it was time to catch the bus again. The guide was good but I think she took all of her information from the Versailles series. She was distracted. I got the impression she had just broken up with her boyfriend.
