After meeting your guide in Paris or Versailles, the tour will start with a small introduction of the place, we will skip the lines to enter to the palace and once inside we will visit first the king's public apartments, the hall of mirrors ending with the private apartments of the kings and queens.
After discovering the palace and all its historical facts, daily life and anecdotes, we will stroll around its marvelous gardens to see some of its grooves and fountains. Tuesdays and weekends are the best days to admire the musical fountains.
Maria Antoinette received as a present 'Le petit trianon' in 1774 in order to escape the buzz inside the palace. This place played a huge role in her fall into disgrace as she will lock herself in with only a few chosen friends. We will see first of all her house, hamlet and different types of gardes including french and english-chinese one.
We met Cinthia our guide at the train station to embark on the most wonderfully informative yet tiring trip of our weeks stay in Paris! Her 10 years as a teacher only helped make my 19yr old college daughter and I appreciate and understand the Palace, the history of all of the occupants (complete with iPad visuals) the grounds and the story that makes Versailles a must do trip! I cannot say enough about how comfortable Cinthia made us feel and the hours flew by! She is a true gem for the Paris tour industry. Her confident nature and help getting us thru the masses of people with a smile solidified my knowing that the tour was indeed worth every dollar!
