Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Versailles, Paris City Tour and Seine River Cruise Day Trip

Versailles, Paris City Tour and Seine River Cruise Day Trip

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.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:On Saturdays and Sundays from April to October and Tuesdays from mid-May through June there is a special show at Versailles during which the fountain displays in the gardens are set to music that dates from the time of Louis XIV’s court. Entry fees to this special fountain show are NOT included with this tour. An additional approximately 8 euro (adult) is payable direct.

Great tour! A busy day but well worth it to get in as much as possible. PARIS City VISION is a first class outfit with wonderful tour guides. Marie and Teresa worked the morning part to Versailles and made the tour very enjoyable.

Worth it! The audio on the seine cruise was entertaining. Versailles was breathtaking. Paris city tour was ok. Whole day of taking in the sights and sounds of Paris! Remember though that the tranfers are not return, you'll have to make your way back to your starting point. Was an adventure in itself taking taxis/subways.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Highly recommended for visitors looking for an organized and planned out day trip which takes them through a detailed history of the Palace of Versailles including a visit to the Gardens, a 3 course lunch and then a visit to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower, followed by an option Seine River Cruise you can use the ticket later for up to a year if you are too tired to do it immediately. The trip was very organized and the guides were excited and quite organized

This tour was amazing! We really enjoyed our time during this day. The trip to Versailles was wonderful. Then the lunch and city tour by bus was excellent. Finally spending some time at the Effiel tower and cruising the Seine River was very romantic!

This was a great tour. The guide was very informative and entertaining. Not only did we see Versailles, a quick tour of the city, lunch in a wonderful café followed by the Eiffel Tower, but ended with a cruise down the Seine. If you want to manage Paris and Versailles in one day, this was definitely the way to go!

This was not my first time to Paris, but I highly recommend the agency to see Paris properly. Very professional service, with comfortable bus and great guides that provided wonderful commentaries on the places we visited. We loved the boat ride along River Seine. We found that we got to understand Paris better through their services. Highly recommended!
