Your Licensed Driver-Guide will pick you up at your hotel, or your apartment. He’ll escort you to Versailles, driving you in a private deluxe air-conditioned vehicle.
A stone’s throw away from Paris, Versailles Palace is one of the greatest symbols of our Old Monarchical system: remnant of the “Ancien Régime”. It is a dream place, taking you back through French history; perfectly represented by this magnificent testimony to the Sun King’s extravagance and endless thirst for Grandeur. Your Licensed Driver-Guide will highly recommend you the “Skip the Line” formula, in order to avoid any unnecessary queuing, which can be very long during the high season.
It’s the guarantee of a confirmed reservation as well as the entrance tickets. If you wish to take this option, your Licensed Driver-Guide will take care of the formalities of the Ticket Office, and you will enter without stress.
Your Licensed Driver-Guide will live up to all your expectations and more. Walk in the unique and unrivalled Hall of Mirrors (357 mirrors in all) ; followed by the Royal Chapel, as well as the King and Queen’s Royal Apartments. Enter and admire the Royal Opera, an auditorium constructed entirely from wood, making it one of the most acoustic “live” theatres in the world, still in use nowadays with hundreds of seats. You will be stunned by the Gardens (Europe’s largest royal gardens) and the beauty of the Fountains (Apollo, Latona, Neptune,…) all created by France’s world famous landscape gardener, André Le Nôtre.
Once you have finished this unforgettable trip into an integral part of France’s history, your Licensed Driver-Guide will then drive you back safely to your hotel, or apartment.
