What You Can Expect
On your return to Paris, your three-course lunch (drinks not included) will be served in a central Paris restaurant. In the afternoon, you'll take a self-guided city tour of Paris' main monuments by air-conditioned motor coach. You will also have the opportunity to ride the elevator to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower to enjoy the amazing panoramic views of Paris. There is not enough time allocated for visitors to go to the "top" of the Eiffel Tower. Queuing can take a long time, therefore it is suggested to return on another day.
The tour comes to a close with a one-hour Seine River cruise, with commentary. You'll admire the famous bridges crossing the Seine and learn more about the history of Paris on your cruise. Your whirlwind day tour of Versailles and Paris ends at the base of the Eiffel Tower.
Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
April 3rd to October 31st (Saturdays & Sundays) and May 18th to June 29th (Tuesdays).

The display is accompanied by music composed at the time of Louis XIV's court.
Note that entrance fees to the Versailles Fountain Show Special Program are NOT included. A supplement of approx. 8 euros (adult) is payable direct.
The trip to the Versailles Palace was wonderful the gardens were amazing, our guide was very informative and a very nice person kept our group together at all times .
We had an absolutely wonderful time on this trip. The guides were very informative and congenial.
The city tour was grande, we saw all of the wonders of Paris and although the workers at the Eiffel Tower were on strike, Montparnasse was fun. We enjoyed the River Cruise and being dropped at the Eiffel Tower at the end of the trip was a bonus.
I would skip the lunch. Not very good.
