Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles

Choose one of the three tour options (listed in itinerary below) and make your way to central Paris or central Versailles to board your transport to the palace. Upon arrival, join your friendly guide for a small-group tour. 
Once inside, explore the lavish design and ornament that adorns every room of the enormous complex. Marvel at the more than 13,000 pieces of art and fine furnishings, the sumptuous private chambers and the elaborate gardens. With your pass, view the King’s and Queen’s luxurious apartments, the Royal Chapel, the Hall of Mirrors, the Coronation Room and the Hercules Drawing Room – a reminder that King Louis XIV glorified himself as a deity.
As you walk, enjoy your guide’s colorful commentary. Hear about the eccentricity and ambition of the French monarchy from the mid-17th century until the French Revolution. Discover the exciting details of the day in 1789 when Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were dragged from Versailles by an angry mob, to be eventually beheaded in Paris.

It was really good, our tour guide is very knowledgeable about Paris and Versailles. However, the weather did not permit us to enjoy and walk around the garden since it was too foggy that day.
