After hotel pickup in Paris, your tour starts with the drive to the Palace of Versailles, which played a fascinating role in French history. The dream of the Sun King, the palace is a pure example of the classical French architecture of the 17th century and is home to two smaller estates—the Trianon and Marie Antoinette's Hameau.

When you arrive, your guide tells you about the history of the château and its infamous residents. See and hear about the places constructed specially for King Louis XIV, such as the Hall of Mirrors, the apartments of the king and the queen, and other royal chambers. After your visit inside the palace, follow your guide outside to see the gardens and groves designed by the landscape architect Le Notre, the creator of the French garden style.

At the end of your time at Versailles, you'll be returned to Paris in your private transport.
