5-hour excursion to the Royal Gardens of Versailles from Paris with a Spanish speaking guide.
Walk in the footsteps of the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette, and other famous French royals on a tour of the extravagant Gardens of Versailles. Ride the train from Paris with included fare, and then stroll through the UNESCO-listed landscape while a guide shows you the most elaborate fountains and statues and shares tales of palace intrigue, elaborate court customs, and the sparks of revolution. If you like, visit the remarkable Palace of Versailles on your own after the tour.
What to Expect
Versailles is world famous for its awe-inspiring, extravagant palace and breathtakingly beautiful gardens. You will experience the excitement and wonder of cosmopolitan Paris on a journey back in time. Revel in the over-the-top decadence, harmonious open spaces, and luscious splendor of an intricately-landscaped paradise just a short ride from the capital.

Walk around and through these enchanted grounds and reveal the stories of the shamelessly self-indulgent kings, queens, and consorts of 17th and 18th century France. Unravel the glory of the Sun King, the stifling court etiquette, and the scandals that rocked the monarchy and ignited the Revolution. Hear the fantastic myths and legends behind the statues and fountains and explore the hidden corners you wouldn’t find on your own.

The tour operates at 9am on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

All I wanted from Versailles I got from this tour!

I loved this tour from start to finish. This is mostly due to the amazing tour guides that Sandemans New Europe Tours offers. A place is always the same, but what a tourist gets out of it varies a lot. I’m extremely happy with this...More

Hi, We took the train direct from Paris, very reasonable price and very simple to understand. A pleasant 5-10 min walk from train station to gardens at most.
