    Paris or the ‘City of Lights’ is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is bursting with fantastic sights and attractions. This great value full day tour combines the highlights of central Paris with a trip to the grand Palace of Versailles. 

    See the city’s iconic landmarks on a magical Seine river cruise, then enjoy skip-the-line access to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower and experience the breathtaking panoramic views.

    At the magnificent Palace of Versailles you will explore the famous rooms and gardens and discover the palace's role within French History. Built by Louis the XIV, the famous Palace of Versailles was designed to awe with its opulence. The 75 meter long Hall of Mirrors is particularly impressive with 17 huge mirrors and stucco work.

    The gardens are almost as grand as the palace itself and the fountain show, accompanied by the music of one of the composers from the court of Louis XIV, is particularly delightful.
