Visita a pie por Versalles con espectáculo de fuentes opcional
Luis XIII de Francia encargó primero la construcción de Versalles como un pabellón de caza, pero fue la ambición de su sucesor, Luis XIV, lo que lo convirtió en uno de los palacios más grandes y más opulentos del mundo. La construcción se llevó a cabo entre los años 1664 y 1710, y el Palacio de Versalles destaca hoy en día como uno de los edificios más bonitos de Europa.
A su llegada a Versalles, evite las colas al entrar para empezar su excursión. (Los visitantes a Versalles tendrá la opción de ver los espectáculos de la fuente de verano en algunos días concretos, por lo que planifique con antelación para sacar el máximo provecho de su viaje).
Siga a su guía a través del impresionante esplendor de los apartamentos del Rey y la Reina y contemple extasiado la lujosa decadencia de la que disfrutaron los reyes. Los apartamentos eran las residencias privadas del rey Luis XIV y la reina María Antonieta, y la parte del palacio en la que habrían pasado la mayor parte de su tiempo.
Explore los apartamentos del delfín y la delfina (títulos otorgados a los futuros herederos de la corona francesa) y admire su majestuosidad. Maravíllese ante los despachos, los salones y las habitaciones privadas, y conozca mejor la vida como heredero al trono en la Francia de los siglos XVII y XVIII.
Siga hasta la espectacular Galería de los Espejos, considerada como el aspecto más destacado del Palacio de Versalles, y escuche a su guía mientras describe muchos de sus elementos significativos. Construido a partir de 1678, el Salón de los Espejos es la galería central del palacio y une el Salón de la Guerra y el Salón de la Paz a los apartamentos del rey y la reina.
Disfrute de un poco de tiempo libre al final de su recorrido para pasear por los bonitos jardines del palacio a su propio ritmo. Admire las numerosas estatuas, los bustos reales y las esculturas, y tómese su tiempo para captar el paisaje con la cámara. Todas las noches de los sábados de los meses de verano, los visitantes pueden disfrutar de los magníficos espectáculos de las fuentes de Versalles, que demuestran la destreza y el arte de tres siglos de diseño de jardines y de ingeniería en Francia. El espectáculo va acompañado de música compuesta en la época de la corte de Luis XIV.
Tras la visita al espectacular Palacio de Versalles, suba de nuevo al autobús para volver al centro de París, donde la excursión llegará a su fin.

Wow, what a monstrosity...thank goodness for our guide to try and make some sense of the madness...our guide...btw...was friendly and passionately conveyed the history of the Palace...he was great!
Absolutely superior guide. Everything went smoothly entire day was well worth the effort.. Highly recommend to e everyone.
I loved it . I wish i were able to spendmore time there and see more with the tour we booked. But with one person in our group that could not walk far so we could not see the gardens
We had a wonderful experience during this trip to Versailles. The tour guide was professional a knowledgeable. This tour is good if you have family members who cannot do a lot of walking. We participated in the afternoon session and Versailles was very crowded and hectic, so keep a close eye on your little ones. I highly recommend this tour.
We had a wonderful visit with a knowledgeable tour guide. The palace and the gardens were something you should make time to see.
Versailles is a wonderful place to visit. This tour was too short. We rushed through the rooms and then there was about 50 minutes left to see the gardens. if you want to enjoy Versailles look for a longer tour
Very short trip and felt very rushed. We were travelling with a baby. The tour guide did not tell us that strollers were not allowed inside the palace and so we had to check it in at security when we could have just left it in the bus. Tour guide did not know where we had to pick up the stroller and left us on our own to figure it out. They gave us less than 1 hour to see the gardens. The garden is really huge and its a good 10 min walk to get to the gardens from the palace exit and a good 10 min walk back to the parking lot. So we only had half hour to see the gardens which was definitely not enough. The tour guide told us the bus number and the time to get back to the parking lot. We go to the spot where they dropped and we were unable to find the bus. We were running around the huge parking lot trying to find the bus with a baby and they conveniently moved it to another parking spot. Absolutely disappointing!
Never saw the palace. The instruction not ckear. It should read meeting place instead directions. We took the metro directly to the palace. Once arrived the employees were very helpful and took us to B section and even tried to find the tour guide.
VERY SHORT TRIP, MOST OF IT DRIVING . NO OFFER OF FOUNTAIN SHOW !
Loved this tour! We were taken in a comfortable air conditioned bus out of the city to Versailles then were able to walk right in. We paid the extra for the fountain show and gardens which was well worth the money. The Palace is amazing but VERY crowded. Our only challenge was that English was not our guides first language. Many times she had no idea how to say something in English so she would say never mind or it's not important it was more funny than anything. She was very knowledgeable and had all kinds of stories. Note that this is a 4 hour tour. If you want to spend more time walking around the groves and gardens this is not the tour for you. We thought the time was perfect and we did not need longer.
We arrived at the PARIS CityVISION office, which was a relatively large facility with ticket desks and seating for waiting tourists. Buses collected passengers out front. They did not have rest rooms for customer use. We were directed to a restaurant across the street and instructed to buy something there in order to use the facilities. Our bus transported English-, French-, and Spanish-speaking guests to Versailles. Carine, who guided the English-speaking guests, gave us each a headset to use to follow her narrative. The first part of the tour was through the Gardens, where we caught the Fountain show. The tour description provided by Viator used expressions like, stroll through the statue-filled palace gardens at your leisure, and ...after your free time in the Versailles garden... so imagine our surprise when Carine warned us it was a two-mile escorted walk and she gave us the chance to opt out. Evidently taking the Fountain Show option means a brisk walk through the gardens with a brief stop at each of the fountains. No one opted out we all paid for it, right?. Two members of our party had a great deal of trouble keeping up with Carine. One pulled out of the following Palace portion of the tour because he was afraid it, too, would be strenuous and another my husband could not keep up and put us so far behind he and I lost the group though, happily, we chose the correct path to rejoin the group. A check for laggards maybe a count of participants might have made it less stressful. The entire group's headsets did not work through the whole Gardens portion of the tour. Carine's voice kept going in and out, so we heard very little about the Gardens or the historical information she referred to later. When we arrived at the Palace, she was able to switch out her equipment and we did have perfect reception throughout the Palace portion of the tour. It was much easier to keep up in the Palace. The pace was much slower, and seats were sometimes available to those in need. The Palace and Carine's descriptions of each area were impressive and informative. We are happy we made the trip to Versailles, however the faulty equipment and surprise activity level were disappointing.
