What to expect

There were reasons behind the French Revolution of the 18th century. The Palace of Versailles was one of them. Built at a time when the people were starving, Versailles epitomizes the extravagance of Louis XIV. Rooms covered with gold leaf, furniture quilted in the finest velvet and clothes crafted from only the best silk and handmade lace.

Join our Versailles tours from Paris to explore the excesses that sparked a revolution and left Marie Antoinette behind bars. With an expert, English-speaking guide, you’ll learn all about the history of this incredible palace. They’ll lead you through vast corridors and ballrooms to explore the best areas of the Palace – such as the Hall of Mirrors, the King and Queen’s bedrooms and the incredible lounges, filled with stunning artworks, chandeliers and ornate furniture.

You’ll also have some time to enjoy the outdoors with one hour of free time to explore the Gardens of Versailles. Covering 1,800 acres, these manicured grounds are the crown jewels of Versailles, with ornate fountains, orange groves, rolling lawns and stunning water features stretching as far as the eye can see.

Depending on the day and scheduling, our Versailles tours from Paris include the Musical Fountains Show or the Musical Gardens. For the Musical Fountains Show your guide will lead you on a route of its water features timed perfectly to the notes of classical music played over hidden speakers. Meanwhile, for the Musical Gardens you’ll hear delightful music while discovering some of its most idyllic spots.

With a return transfer from Paris to Versailles on an air-conditioned coach included, our tours cut out all the hassle of finding your own way.

Small group sizes of only 25 people or fewer mean our Versailles tours are intimate too, as your expert, English-speaking guide leads you around our carefully-planned route, telling you the stories and anecdotes that bring the Palace of Versailles to life.

On your return to Paris, enjoy some free time for lunch and let the excitement build for your afternoon tour. Being one of the world’s largest, most impressive art museums, one can get lost in the Louvre’s endless expanses of exhibits, quite literally. Because your time is valuable, City Wonders has crafted a semi-private fully-guided tour of the greatest masterpieces within these famed walls. Let your guide escort you from one room to the next as you are introduced to marvels including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo and learn interesting and entertaining facts about each. See the best the Louvre has to offer and do it all in only an hour and a half.

Vacations fly by in the blink of an eye. Even the most seasoned travelers can get overwhelmed at the whirlwind of activities and attractions, especially in a renowned museum like the Louvre. But with this personalized tour of only 25 people maximum, we whisk you through the endless halls and exhibits straight to the top masterpieces. No lines, no waiting, all enjoyment. Our local expert English-only speaking guides have hand selected the top must-see pieces in the world’s most-visited museum.

Spend more time with the Mona Lisa, the world’s most famous painting, see the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and hear the stories behind these priceless paintings and sculptures. Our specially-designed tour will show you what you can’t afford to miss in the Louvre, accompanied by rich and entertaining historical stories that will bring the art to life like you’ve never experienced before. Don’t waste precious time waiting in lines and ambling aimlessly amongst the museum’s endless corridors, let us take you straight to where you want to be with this short but in-depth experience.

Whether it is your first time or you’ve visited the Louvre many times, this is an unbelievable artistic experience full of excitement and intrigue as only City Wonders can deliver. And it leaves you with plenty of time to see more of what Paris has to offer.
