Best time to visit Versailles
Versailles is beautiful all year round, especially in the spring and summer when the gardens bloom. At that time of year, the palace hosts special events, and the magnificent fountains in the gardens are turned on.
However, a visit during the warmer months also means it is a peak season at Versailles. So, if you’re more interested in good weather with fewer crowds, then a trip during the spring or autumn is an absolute must. If you’re planning to visit Versailles during wintertime, be sure to wrap up warm and bring a cozy pair of gloves!
Very well-organized day trip to Versailles!
This is, for sure, the best travel agency you can choose. I have searched a lot, and based on the ratings, I have chosen this agency. Fortunately, it worked out very well. I really enjoyed the trip. Our tour guide, Carl, was incredible! He was very knowledgeable about French history, especially in the art section. This really helped us. I would strongly recommend going on this day trip!
Excellent tour guide!
Our family highly recommends this day tour from Paris. A guide on the coach smoothly connected us with our tour guide for a three-hour visit to the palace. He took us in quickly without waiting in long lines. With our guide, Jackson, the visit was very informative, interesting, and pleasant. He helped us gain an understanding of the palace's interior that we may not have had without him.
Definitely worth your time and money!
Really interesting history and tour of the Versailles Palace. It was nice to have a bus take you out to Versailles and back. Our tour guide was friendly, and the tour itself was amazing, not too long or short, plus you will have about an hour to explore the gardens independently. The only thing we highly recommend is visiting Versailles on a Wednesday because the gardens are free and there are fewer people.
