Full description
You will be picked up in Paris and driven through scenic Parisian suburbs to the Palace of Versailles. The Palace gently comes into view and after parking in front, you will enter with a timed ticket allowing to skip the main line. An audio-guide is included, but your tour guide will also accompany you through the hour-long tour of the Palace. After the main Palace, you will be brought to the market of Versailles where together with your guide you will choose a picnic lunch to enjoy on the Grand Canal, and soak up the view of the grounds and the Palace. Hopping back into the sidecar, we zip along to a quick restroom stop before entering the Trianon Domaine to walk off the copious picnic lunch. Spying Marie Antoinette's Temple of Love from her bedroom window, you will also explore the the Queen's Hamlet, where she would delight in distancing herself from the rigours of court life. Upon exiting the Trianon Domaine, you're back in the sidecar for a relaxing return to Paris to be dropped of where you started, on the Pont Bir Hakeim. Other more convenient drop-off locations can be considered if not too far.
