Return Details

Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
Visit Versailles in the morning—with skip-the-line admission—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, with skip-the-line admission. 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 river cruise with commentary.

Enjoy seeing the "City of Light" 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.

My day
, Nov 2019
First off our tour guide was Florence she was great and very attentive to her group.She was very knowledgable on the palace which was great she was also very funny. We then moved on to lunch which was under whelming to say the least. The restaurant chosen was not the best . The waiter didnt really speak to the group and just sat plates in front off us then seemed to be rushing us to finish up.We then went on to a 2 hr tour around Paris which was great and finished it off with the fantastic Eiffel Tower at night and of course the great Seine river tower to follow Eiffel Tower.

Versailles was extremely crowded making priority group entrance essential. Inside palace rooms could not be enjoyed due to excess numbers of visitors. Gardens were great! Heavy traffic in Paris ruined city tour, but the Eiffel Tower reserved entrance time made the tower visit very pleasant. Seine river cruise was outstanding!

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.
Versailles was an absolute highlight...
, Mar 2018
Versailles was an absolute highlight of this tour. My husband has trouble walking but with a walker he was able to get into the building. We went right to the front of the line that must have been a quarter of a mile long. The live tour guide spoke into a headset hat we picked up on receivers we were wearing. Good pace for us and two other people with walking problems. Lunch was excellent. The city tour timing was off. The headset would describe something, Arch of Triumph, for example, after we had turned the corner. You weren't aware of what you were seeing until it was gone. The Eiffel tower was a plus, and the river cruise was relaxing. Glad we did it.
Excellent tour, superb tour guide...

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.
Versailles was perfect! Seine River...
