Leisurely Best-of-Versailles Experience by Boat + Champagne Tasting

This Versailles Experience is Different

Currently available by private request.

Join us for an unforgettable, luxuriant, and leisurely day savoring the ‘must-see’ of Versailles without waking up early or biking for hours.

Experience our Curated Highlights of Versailles — a day filled w/ French passion for food, history, wine, & current events alike…unlike any ‘tour’ out there!

We gather at a lovely coffeshop near the Eiffel Tower to meet our fellow travelers.

Then a private vehicle takes us directly to Versailles Marché (voted ‘most beautiful’ in France) for a guided walk through to our favorite stalls as we pick up our French picnic for lunch by the Grand Canal and decode French food culture for you.

Relaxing + Effortless

Next, we are squired effortlessly through the domaine through breathtaking Royal Gardens, Louis XIV’ fountains, Marie Antoinette’s private hideaway and theatre to the stunning Grand Canal for our picnic.

Feel Versailles come alive, dive inside the lives of the most scandalous royals in history w/ a passionate local expert

Well-crafted, Perfectly-timed

We have timed our experience to avoid the infamous 2 hour line+ so you explore the sumptuous Royal Palace–with its glittering Hall of Mirrors + bedroom of Marie Antoinette, at your pace.

Instead of crowding onto packed trains as our day ends, we enjoy Champagne and hors d’ouevres as we melt into our seats on a small boat cruise (just us!) on the storied River Seine on our way back to Paris. We’ll see the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, and more.

This is enjoying Versailles like a royal. There’s no other experience like it.

The weather is slightly more extreme than Paris, be it hot or cold. Much of this experience is outdoors. Sunscreen or hats for summer are a necessity. Rain gear is recommended for all seasons.
