Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This express trip, which travels by high-speed train, lets you tick off both Paris and Versailles in just one day.
This packed, full-day tour allows you to experience some of France’s most iconic attractions in a single day. Make your way to London’s St Pancras International train station in the early morning, where a representative will meet you and help you board a high-speed Eurostar train bound for Paris. After the 2.5-hour journey, a local guide will meet you at the Gare du Nord station in Paris. 
Board a comfortable coach for a guided tour of Parisian landmarks, including the high-end shops and cafés of the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe, the iconic Opera Garnier, and the regal gardens and monuments of the Trocadero. 
After your city tour, climb to the second-floor observation deck of the Eiffel Tower for unmatched views of Paris. For lunch, you can enjoy a gourmet meal complete with a panoramic backdrop at the tower’s on-site restaurant, or opt for a more casual bite from a street vendor or café (own expense).  
Next, pass through the outlying villages of Paris on the 1-hour drive to Versailles. Take an audio tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Palace of Versailles, which dazzles with excess at every turn. Walk down the shimmering Hall of Mirrors and learn about famous former residents with a glimpse of Marie Antoinette’s bedroom and other opulent royal apartments. Step outside the palace for a stroll among the immense, Baroque-style Versailles Gardens, where you can wander down geometric hedge-lined paths and admire ornate fountains and flowerbeds.
After the Versailles tour, your guide will deliver you back to the Gare de Nord station in Paris and assist you with boarding the return high-speed train to London.

This was a fast paced tour. We were based in London, and only wanted to go to Paris for the day. The high speed train from London to Paris, was really nice, had reserved seating, and does not take too long. The tour bus drives you down the Avenue des Champs-Elysees, and around the Arc de Triomphe, then you make your way to the Eiffel Tower and get to go up it. Some people have the option of eating lunch in the Eiffel Tower restaurant. We did not choose to do this, but should have, as the cost to eat there is very expensive. The trip was worth the cost to get to go to the Palace of Versailles, which is overwhelmingly beautiful. I got to mark two things off my bucket list, eating in a cafe at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, and going to Versailles!

Tour was supposed to start at 5:45 and we were told to be there 30 minutes early. So we got there before 5:15 a.m. Rep didn't show until 6 a.m. and train to Paris wasn't scheduled to leave until 7. All other aspect of the tour were great... just be honest about when we need to be there!

Already reviewed this tour. Try reading the first review. Not good. Poor tour guide, very disorganized and poorly planned. Told to be at London meeting place two hours before Viator Rep bothered to show up. Mostly travel time with very little attractions time.
Try a different tour company.

Great trip but Paris and Versailles was a little too much to do in one day. We barely had time to grab a sandwich and take a few pictures at the Eiffel Tower

The tour was well organized and everything went as planned. I enjoyed everything I saw. Tour guides were quite knowledgeable and friendly. I wish I could spend more time in Paris. Several hours isn't enough to take in the Palace of Versailles or Louvre. One would need at least a day. It gives me reason to go back again.

My family really enjoyed the tour of Paris and Versailles. Our Versailles tour guide was very informative and knowledgable. I would have loved to have been able to get
On and off the bus more, but now that I have been introduced to Paris could do that on another trip.

The trip was great, our guides were super nice, and there was plenty of time to see everything we wanted to in Versailles. I would definitely recommend this trip!
