What You Can Expect

Versailles Night Fountain Show and Fireworks from Paris

Versailles Night Fountain Show and Fireworks from Paris

The Versailles Gardens (Jardins de Versailles) are magical year-round, but during the summer months they come alive after dark with a colorful light show in the fountains and a fireworks display.

Enter the gardens behind the Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles) and enjoy free time to explore at your leisure. Stroll the immaculate paths and admire the flowers, trees and sculptures that adorn the 1,977-acre (800-hectare) grounds. The fountains within the UNESCO-listed gardens are particularly famous, and they're especially glorious during this special night snow.

Colorful lights and pyrotechnics enhance the captivating flow of water from the decorative fountains. Listen to a live orchestra performing music composed during the reign of Louis XIV as you admire the light show. The atmospheric Baroque music is led by Reinhard Goebel, German violinist and conductor, and performed by his Musica Antiqua Köln orchestra.

The grand finale is a fireworks display over the Grand Canal.

Optional Pre-Show Dinner Cruise in Paris:
To make your whole evening even more special, upgrade to include a pre-show dinner cruise on the Seine in Paris. Dine in style on a 3-course meal with wine and coffee as you glide down the river on an 8-mile (12-kilometer) route. Admire famous Parisian attractions like the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral as you eat. After the dinner cruise, your driver will bring you to Versailles for the rest of the tour described above.

Excellent. Been to Versailles several times when fountains not on. This was a first and the fireworks added an unexpected dimension.

We visited Versailles in August so were able to view the castle and grounds in both daylight and night. It was magnificent. Wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot to see and you will do a lot of walking. The fireworks and dancing waters show were fabulous. We added the hotel pickup option and were very pleased we did. Our driver, Herve, was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, castle and reigning monarchies of that era. He showed us many interesting sights along the way. His enthusiasm and knowledge made this trip more pleasurable for everyone. I highly recommend this event.

A great way to spend an evening. Hotel pickup was on time and dropped us off at the dinner boat with enough time to walk around a bit and snap photos before boarding the boat. Dinner was nice while passing the beautiful sites along the Seine. Versailles show was amazing and highly recommended. 5 stars

From pickup at my hotel, dinner cruise on the Seine, transfer to and entrance to Versailles and the firework show and transfer back to Paris, this was a top-rate experience. Our guide handled everything expertly and was very friendly and knowledgable. This tour is definitely worth the money.

Collected on time by excellent driver/host (Oscar), taken to Seine River dinner which was superb, then transferred to Versailles where the dancing fountains and fireworks were of great quality and an efficient trip back to our hotel. Could not have been better and was really enjoyed

Wonderful evening - hotel pick up made arriving and leaving Versailles no stress at all on a very busy evening. A lot of information was given by our guide en route also. Walking around the gardens in the evening was memorable.
