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.
