Det beste av Versailles på en dagstur fra Paris, inkludert prioritert adgang og lunsj
Første stopp er slottet i Versailles, som er byens vidstrakte slottsområde, der Ludvig XVI og hans kone, Marie Antoinette, bodde. Dette var maktsentrumet i det franske kongeriket på 1600- og 1700-tallet, og bygningene oser av kongelig eleganse, noe som tiltrekker seg turister fra hele verden.
Gå rett forbi køen med din spesialbillett som gir fortrinnsrett, og opplev historien og dens velstand. På en tur ledet av en erfaren guide får du oppleve de fantastiske statsboligene som omfatter speilsalen og dronningens kvarter. Underveis forteller guiden interessante historier om kongene som bodde der.
Etter en time i slottet i Versailles, kan du gå ut i hagene og utforske dem på egen hånd. Hagene i fransk barokkstil er like storslagne som slottet, og det tok nesten 40 år å gjøre dem i stand med spektakulære fontener og oransjeri. Etter en tur gjennom hagene, møter du guiden igjen til lunsj på en restaurant i nærheten av Versailles' Grand Canal. Se reiseplanen nedenfor for en eksempelmeny.
Ettermiddagen tilbringes på eiendommen Trianon, som kanskje er tettest knyttet til dronning Marie-Antoinette, hvor du får besøke Petit Trianon, stedet der kona til Ludvig XVI regelmessig tilbrakte tid. Marie Antionettes Dronningens landsby er i nærheten, og dette er den siste severdigheten i Versailles før turen går tilbake til Paris. Dette lille stedet, som er tegnet av den populære franske arkitekten Richard Mique, har en sjarmerende hytte med halmtak, innsjøer, elver og til og med en liten bondegård.
Etter å ha utforsket dronningens landsby, går du tilbake til minibussen og returnerer til 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!
