Visiting the Palace of Versailles with kids is a highlight for any family holiday in Paris. However, as it is quite crowded, it is important to do it in the best conditions for the kids. With this private Palace of Versailles tour, you will not only benefit from fast-track entry but will also get a family-friendly activity that will entertain kids and parents alike!
Your Welcomer is a licensed guide specially trained to lead kids and adults in the Palace of Versailles. She knows how to make it informative, funny, and interactive in order for your kids to appreciate the beauties of Versailles Palace. She is an amazing storyteller, able to make you feel how life was at the magnificent French Court!
The fun begins right away in the train to Versailles. To animate the 45-min ride, your kids will receive a booklet to amuse them along the way. This makes a nice introduction to the Palace and to the extravagant life at the Court.
Your expert guide will lead you through official rooms conceived by the King himself. A series of “salons” composed the Grand Apartment, where the King was supposed to live. In fact, he had a much more comfortable, smaller dwelling behind this scene, where only his closest relatives entered the private rooms.
