Visit Versailles in the morning with a knowledgeable guide to see the Royal Apartments, the Queen’s Apartments and the incomparable Hall of Mirrors. Seeing the palace with a guide helps you travel back in time to understand what life might have been like when this was a residence.
After your Versailles tour, head back into Paris to enjoy a 3-course lunch (drinks not included) in a restaurant in central Paris. Following your meal, board a comfortable air-conditioned coach for a tour of Paris with informative audio commentary.
The next stop in your full-day Paris tour is the iconic Eiffel Tower. There isn’t time in the busy schedule to ride all the way to the top of the tower during this tour (coming back another day for the trip to the top is recommended), but you may choose to ride to the second floor for some great views. Then, head to the banks of the Seine for a 1-hour river cruise with commentary.
Enjoy seeing the City of Lights from a different perspective, including some of the most famous landmarks. The whirlwind tour of Versailles and Paris concludes after your cruise at the base of the Eiffel Tower.
