From Jan.5th the Queen's State Apartment are undergoing a huge renovation program ! Therefore they are closed to the public for several months ! this is why in 2016 Driver-Guide-France offers a New tour which allows you to visit places which are not open to the public during a classic tour ! Visit the Private apartments of the kings Louis XV and Louis XVI ,plus the Royal Chapel or the Operahouse with your local expert guide !
Your Driver/Qualified Tour guide will pick you up right at the frontdoor of your hotel or apartment downtown Paris with his minivan ; After a 45mn-drive from Paris we'll reach the city of Versailles ; Once there we'll be able to enter Versailles without queing at all,thank to a specific authorization delivered by the palace of Versailles to the qualified guides ! Your totally Private Tour will start with guided tour of the Private apartments of Louis XV and Louis XVI ,and the Operahouse (or the Royal Chapel in case of rehearsal at the Operahouse );ALL of them are not open to the public ! you have to be accompany by a local and qualified tour guide ! afterwards you'll be able to visit the Grand Apartment ( which includes the glorious Hall of Mirrors and the King's Bedchamber .
After Lunch you will visit still with your personal guide the gardens ,designed by the landscapes gardener Le Notre,then the Trianons ( Grand & Petit ) ,and above all, the very charming,little Hamlet built for Marie Antoinette,just 5 years before the beginning of the Revolution ! An exquiste little place, far away from the busy life at Versailles. The Full Day Tour allows you also to enjoy more the park of Versailles, especially when the fountains are on display ( On Tuseday,and weekends ,from Apr.1st till the end of September ).On this occassion we suggest to spend the whole day at Versailles since it is too see everything within a half-day ! this is why we don't combine Versailles & The Fountains' shows with another tour like half-day Paris,Half-day Giverny or Chartres !
N.B : The tour must be booked in advance in order to secure the authorisation for that private tour ! the earlier the better ! the ideal is 3 months in advance !
The entrance fees and the reservation fees are included within the price ; the entrance fees to the Hamlet of Marie Antoinette too ; In case you want to see the gardens during the Fountains ' shows you need to add 15 € pp ;
