83 Reviews

  • Location: Paris, France
  • Duration: 10 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2050VP_VPE
If your time in Paris is short, why not see Versailles and the highlights of Paris in one full-day tour? You'll visit the Palace of Versailles in the morning, return to Paris for lunch and take a Seine River cruise and Paris city tour in the afternoon.
At Versailles your guide-interpreter will bring the history of the Palace of Versailles to life. In particular, you will discover Versailles' Great Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and the Queen's Apartments.

On your return to Paris, your three-course lunch (drinks not included) will be served in a central Paris restaurant. In the afternoon, you'll take a self-guided city tour of Paris' main monuments by air-conditioned motor coach. You will also have the opportunity to ride the elevator to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower to enjoy the amazing panoramic views of Paris. There is not enough time allocated for visitors to go to the "top" of the Eiffel Tower. Queuing can take a long time, therefore it is suggested to return on another day.

The tour comes to a close with a one-hour Seine River cruise, with commentary. You'll admire the famous bridges crossing the Seine and learn more about the history of Paris on your cruise. Your whirlwind day tour of Versailles and Paris ends at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
April 3rd to October 31st (Saturdays & Sundays) and May 18th to June 29th (Tuesdays). For a selected time you have the option to see the magnificent fountain displays, which reveal the skill and artistry of 3 centuries of French garden design and engineering. The display is accompanied by music composed at the time of Louis XIV's court.

Note that entrance fees to the Versailles Fountain Show Special Program are NOT included. A supplement of approx. 8 euros (adult) is payable direct.

Skipping the line alone made this a great choice

Reviewed by: Cheer-Sun Y, July 2014

With the option of jump-the-line tour in Versailles and a quick one-hour glance of Seine Cruise, you will be amazed how much you would have missed in one day with the guidance from Viator's tourist guides. The long line in front of the Versailles makes you feel strongly that this trip is worth the money. You will never regret.
