Your LivTours’ Private Versailles Tour | Royal Palace & Gardens Golf Cart Tour begins when you meet your private expert guide just in front of the main entrance into Versailles. You will start by touring the vast gardens in a comfortable four-seat golf cart. Using a golf cart, allows you to fully appreciate all of the major garden attractions in a shorter time, giving you more time inside to admire the amazingly ornate rooms. Your guide will make sure you get to see all the highlights in the gardens, including Louis XIV’s private retreat “The Grand Trianon” and Marie Antoinette’s former home. If your timing is right, you might catch the seasonal water show at the garden’s central fountains.
Once you are finished exploring the gardens, your guide will lead you past the long lines and into the Palace. Hosting 2300 rooms in total, the most famous is said to be the 240 foot-long Galerie des Glaces, The Hall of Mirrors. Your guide will take you back in time as they describe what life was like in the 17th century when visitors saw themselves in a full-length mirror for the first time. Mirrors were expensive and rare, so to have one room filled with more than three hundred was a way for Louis VX to show his wealth and power. This hall has hosted many important moments in history, including the signing of the Treaty of Versailles after WWI.
Next it is on to see the 18th century Royal Chapel, one of five churches on the Versailles estate. An interesting mix of architectural influences, it is best known for its colorful ceiling paintings and its historic organ. From there you will leave the religious world behind and move on to the opulent State Apartment, or offices of the king, where royalty would meet with important members of society and politics on a daily basis.
You will get a chance to see the areas of the Palace in a more intimate setting having reserved the best available time to visit. Your guide will share with you the fascinating stories about the hundreds of servants who would scramble to attend the king and queen’s every need, including taking off their clothes and accompanying them to the toilet. You will gain a greater appreciation for Marie Antoinette’s profound influence on the evolution of French fashion when viewing the queen’s private chambers.

Excellent tour at Versailles
"We enjoyed our day trip to Versailles thanks to LivTours. We enjoyed the company of a splendid guide who was a fountain of information with always a warm smile. She was attentive to our interests and very accommodating as we visited the palace and the spectacular gardens. The golf cart was an enjoyable addition and allowed us to see more of the vast gardens than would have been possible if we had been on foot. We recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing Versailles."

"This is the best way to see the palace and gardens at Versailles. Our guide took us through the palace with VIP treatment, keeping us away from the big groups and letting us set the pace. Zooming around the gardens in a golf cart is not only fun but also a great way to see them because they are quite vast and it would be very tiring to try to walk all around. We will definitely recommend this tour"

"We were so pleased with this tour. We had not seen the Palace of Versailles before so this was a completely new adventure for us. We booked LivTour's day trip and found it to be everything that we had hoped for. Versailles is quite crowded but our guide navigated us around the crowds so we never felt pushed or stressed. We toured around the gardens in a golf cart which was very good because the gardens are quite expansive. All in all, we had a lovely experience and will recommend this tour to everyone we know."
