Complete Tour Description
The Palace of Versailles is a must-see for tourists, but all too often the long lines, huge crowds, and large tour groups can dull the imagination of its youngest visitors. Ensure the wonder isn’t lost on your young travelers with our specially crafted Versailles family tours from Versailles that expertly navigate all the logistics while bringing this fascinating palace to life.
Your day of being treated like royalty begins right outside the palace gates where you will meet your small group of 20 people or fewer. Princes and princesses shouldn’t have to wait in line, and your group will enjoy Skip the Line access to the Palace, bypassing the long queues snaking around the courtyard. On entry, your expert guide will begin to weave the fascinating history of Versailles into a fantastic story sure to spark the imagination of your little tourists. Watch as they are enthralled by tales of mock Naval battles on the Great Canal, incredible fireworks exploding over the Palace, and bizarre Royal rituals which included waking up and being dressed in front of an audience of courtiers.
Life in the Palace is brought alive as your guide skillfully combines their commentary with activity materials exclusively designed for this tour, ensuring that children have a fully immersive Royal experience. However, parents will also benefit from the tour as your guide is a fully licensed professional, expertly versed in all aspects of Versailles and ready to answer any questions you may have.
Your guided visit covers all of the most famous of Versailles’ 2,300 rooms – the iconic Hall of Mirrors, the lavish State Apartments, as well as the manicured gardens. Your tour will take you and your small explorers on a journey from the pinnacle of royal power to its tragic demise at the hands of the French Revolution. Your adventure comes to an end in the gardens, where your guide will lead you through the story of the lush greenery and the ornate fountains which you may see perfectly timed to music, before leaving you to enjoy a leisurely stroll by yourself – as the Royals once did.
Join City Wonders on this dedicated family visit of Versailles and let your children’s imagination soar as they become King and Queen for a day!
