    Palace of Versailles
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    HIGHLIGHTS • Benefit from the royal treatment with skip-the-line tickets • A guaranteed hassle-free experience to get the best of Versailles • A fun and interactive way to discover Versailles thanks to our kid-designed activity booklets • At your disposal, a Versailles expert whose best friend is... Louis XVI! You will meet your guide at the Champ de Mars RER metro station to board a train to Versailles. During the 45-min train ride, your kids will receive an activity booklet, giving them a taste of the Sun King’s Palace through questions and riddles. After a short walk through the city of Versailles, where you will spot an old-style fresh food market, you’ll arrive at the Palace and will enter without standing in line, thanks to our skip-the-line tickets. Along the Palace official lounges – or Great Apartment – you’ll see the dwellings where King and Court lived. The decorations are exceptional. Marble, gold, statues, painted ceilings: they all witnessed the colorful crowd of passing courtiers, waiting for the sovereign to beg for favors. The most magnificent places are certainly the Royal Chapel, because the King of was the Catholic Church protector, and the Hall of Mirrors, a testimony to the Sun King’s military glory. In Louis XIV’s bedchamber, your guide will amaze your children with details about the incredible ceremony the King subjected himself to. In the gardens, quick additional riddles will enthrall your children’s interest. They can caper at their ease on the Orangery Lawn and stand breathless upon discovering the endless viewpoints through the formal gardens. This 5-hour Versailles tour will end at Saint Lazare station, after a memorable moment spent in the most beautiful palace of the world – no less!

We weren’t sure if hiring a private guide to tour Versailles with our nine year was worth it. Well, here we are 24-hours after our tour with Ms. Laurine and Meet the Locals - and I can say without reservation, our five hour tour was one of the highlights of any vacation
