Heldagstur från Paris till Versailles höjdpunkter, inklusive snabbinträde och lunch
Den första anhalten är slottet i Versailles. Ludvig XVI och hans fru Marie Antoinette bodde en gång på det vidsträckta och palatslika området. Under 1600- och 1700-talet var det centrum för den franska kungamakten och byggnaden fullkomligen svämmar över av kunglig elegans som lockar besökare från hela världen.
Gå förbi de långa köerna med snabbinträdesbiljetten och in för att uppleva överdådig historia. Under ledning av en kunnig guide får du se de fantastiska paradvåningarna som utgörs av spegelsalen och drottningens sovrum. Guiden berättar under rundturen fängslande historier om kungarna som bott där.
Efter en timmes rundtur på slottet i Versailles kan du gå ut i trädgården och utforska den på egen hand. Trädgården, som är lika hänförande som slottet, är utförd i fransk barockstil och tog nästan 40 år att slutföra med magnifika utsmyckningar som Versailles fontäner och orangeriet. Efter att ha strosat runt ett tag möter du guiden för lunch på en restaurang nära Grand Canal i Versailles. I resplanen nedan finns en exempelmeny.
Eftermiddagen tillbringas på egendomen Trianon, ”kanske mest intimt förknippad med drottning Marie Antoinette”, där du får besöka Petit Trianon, platsen dit ”Ludvig XVI:s fru regelbundet tog sin tillflykt”. Drottning Marie Antoinettes by ligger i närheten och det är den sista av Versailles sevärdheter innan du åker tillbaka till Paris. Tillflyktsorten är utformad av den populära franske arkitekten Richard Mique och består av en charmig halmtäckt stuga, sjöar, bäckar och en liten bondgård.
Efter att ha utforskat drottningens by beger du dig tillbaka till den lyxiga minibussen för återresan till Paris.

This was one of the few tours we booked through Viator that went off without a hitch. However, if I could do it again, I would not book through Viator. Their prices are over inflated, the communication with the tour providers and AAA is absolutely horrible, and the customer service stinks! I strongly recommend you wait until you get to France to book your tours. There are plenty of tour providers there and your hotel can help you out. You will save lots of money and avoid the many, many problems we experienced with Viator. AVOID VIATOR!!!!
So much to see, so little time. It was great to skip waiting in lines. Versailles is breathtakingly beautiful and definitely a must see, inside as well as the gardens.
My husband and I booked Viator's Best of Versailles Day Trip from Paris, and we were generally happy with our experience. This was a full-day, small group 8-person skip-the-line tour. We were instructed to meet the group at the tour company office at 8:00 a.m. with a scheduled departure of 8:20 a.m. We would have appreciated hotel pick-up, but that was not an option. We barely got there in time, since it was rush hour in Paris, and we had a difficult time getting a cab, despite the concerted efforts of our hotel concierge to call two cab companies. Apparently others had the same issue. All was well, however, when we got underway. Our English speaking guide, Michelle, was most pleasant and informative. She got us into Versailles with very little wait and led us through the palace, providing helpful commentary along the way, which was communicated to us through our ear buds. Unfortunately, her equipment was not the best, so it was often difficult to hear her unless we were right beside her, which was not always possible given the very crowded conditions. This was not the fault of our guide the company should really invest in better equipment We did not have this problem on a 25-person tour of the Louvre the day prior. Of course, a highlight of the palace was the Hall of Mirrors, which was opulent, but hard to fully appreciate because of the crowds. Once we had exited the palace, we had free time to explore the beautiful gardens, pools and fountains on our own before meeting back at La Flottille, a lovely Versailles café by the canal, for a delicious 3-course lunch with wine. By this time, we were all having a great time! After lunch, we concluded our tour with a visit to the Queens Hamlet and the Grand Trianon, the charming estate and grounds of Madame Pompadour and Marie Antoinette. Despite a couple of minor glitches mentioned above, we enjoyed this tour very much and would not hesitate to recommend it.
The tour of Versailles was nice it is a magnificent home with incredible history. We had a good guide that was able to answer a lot of questions-the lunch was good also.
Favorite tour of the 2 weeks in France ! Michelle was the best ! Our van was comfortable and air conditioned , Michelle is a master at French art and history and gives you sooooo much information that is well said and easy to understand . Versailles deserves 2 whole days , but with the skip the line pass and Michelle we did not feel that rushed. 4 in our group and we all loved the tour and Michelle .
This is one tour that we wished we had more time. The lunch was the best including the wine. The views were beyond belief. You can easily spend two days here and still not see everything you want to see.
This tour was excellent! Michelle was our guide and she was well informed, enthusiastic and full of interesting information, a joy to be with. The group was small 8 total and we all got along remarkably well. The lunch was delicious and not crowded, and the afternoon visit to the Trianons and gardens was well worth it. Definitely will recommend to friends!
