    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    HIGHLIGHTS • Benefit from the royal treatment with skip-the-line tickets • A guaranteed hassle-free experience to get the best of Versailles • A fun and interactive way to discover Versailles thanks to our kid-designed activity booklets • At your disposal, a Versailles expert whose best friend is... Louis XVI! You will meet your guide at the Champ de Mars RER metro station to board a train to Versailles. During the 45-min train ride, your kids will receive an activity booklet, giving them a taste of the Sun King’s Palace through questions and riddles. After a short walk through the city of Versailles, where you will spot an old-style fresh food market, you’ll arrive at the Palace and will enter without standing in line, thanks to our skip-the-line tickets. Along the Palace official lounges – or Great Apartment – you’ll see the dwellings where King and Court lived. The decorations are exceptional. Marble, gold, statues, painted ceilings: they all witnessed the colorful crowd of passing courtiers, waiting for the sovereign to beg for favors. The most magnificent places are certainly the Royal Chapel, because the King of was the Catholic Church protector, and the Hall of Mirrors, a testimony to the Sun King’s military glory. In Louis XIV’s bedchamber, your guide will amaze your children with details about the incredible ceremony the King subjected himself to. In the gardens, quick additional riddles will enthrall your children’s interest. They can caper at their ease on the Orangery Lawn and stand breathless upon discovering the endless viewpoints through the formal gardens. This 5-hour Versailles tour will end at Saint Lazare station, after a memorable moment spent in the most beautiful palace of the world – no less!

What a great day this was! Our communication in booking and with all of my questions was super easy and they responded immediately.
We took our family of 3 on the Versailles Palace tour and we had the most amazing guide, Laurine. She is a local and had such a great rapport with our almost 7-year-old boy. She was kind, engaging, and knowledgeable. Laurine answered our questions and kept the tour interesting from the train ride until the very end.
Laurine also kept it fun for my husband and me. She used supplemental materials to help us understand the history and stories she told. She knows so much about Versailles and she was most impressive. We felt like we were talking to a friend. Not stuffy and she was incredibly easy to understand (accents can be tricky on other tours).
I would, without a doubt, use this company again.

I can honestly say that using Meet the Locals was one of the best decisions we made for our three days in Paris! Dominique was a pleasure to work with and she came up with a plan for a fabulous, no stress way for us to experience the highlights. She was so calm and reassuring when we were all trying to figure out how to work with the ever changing restrictions.
Yaelle was our tour guide and she was so lovely and charming and my family adored her! She was so engaging and informative and my kids learned and retained so much from her. The best part was how seamlessly she fit in with our family and we all felt so comfortable with her. We can’t recommend Yaelle and Meet the Locals enough and would absolutely use them again in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful time. Yaelle was so great with the kids and they were SO engaged. The Louvre was our first stop on our trip and it was so nice to learn as we went and see the most interesting things. The kids had a blast filling out the booklets. Someone even stopped us and asked where we got them!

The day of our Versailles trip we were all a bit tired but Yaelle did a great job engaging the kids. I loved relearning French history and seeing all the beautiful rooms. I loved hearing a different perspective on Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Yaelle gave us some great recommendations for pastry shops and other little things to do around Paris.

I would definitely recommend Meet the Locals to anyone traveling to Paris.

Can't say enough good things about Christelle and our tour of Versailles. Just wonderful. Made the whole experience so much better having her to guide and inform us, and she did great with our 10 year old son, keeping him entertained and learning on the RER and during the visit. It was a highlight of our time in France.

We had such a great day travelling with our wonderful guide Camille. Magical visit despite the massive amount of tourists. We were guided by the huge lines and really enjoyed the history and beauty of this magnificent palace. Our whole family ranging from 4 to 62 were able to appreciate and learn so much because of the talent and knowledge of our lovely guide. Highly recommend spending the extra money and getting a real opportunity to enjoy the visit.

Thank you very much to Camille for a wonderful tour of Versailles! Our tour was really one of the highlights of our trip. Even though our entrance into the Chateau was delayed by an hour due to excessive crowds that day (no fault of Meet the Locals), Camille did a very good job managing the delay, getting us into position to get into the Chateau as soon as possible, and also finding opportunities to tell us about the exterior and get some interesting trivia while we waited. She did an great job connecting with my son (6 years old) who enjoyed her so much that he wanted her to stay with us for the rest of our trip to Europe. I really appreciated how she checked with us to make sure we had water and were okay in the intense heat of that day. Since our entrance into the Chateau was delayed by an hour, Camille did a good job of making sure we saw the Chateau but also moved us quickly through it so we could get out to the musical gardens which my son was intensely looking forward to. She even stayed with us a little extra just to make sure we got to see as much of the fountains as possible. I was very happy with her and very glad that I had arranged for the personal guide. There is no way we could have had as good a time on our own and were so happy to have an expert with us.

We had a fantastic time with Laurine. She helped us get to Versailles smoothly and got us inside quickly with skip the line tickets. She was very knowledgeable and entertained our daughters throughout the tour.

Our daughters (ages 7 and 9) asked Laurine a lot of questions and she was so kind and engaging. I especially loved how she focused on speaking to the kids. This kept the kids interested, and of course, the adults (my husband and I) were able to listen to what she was saying to the kids and learn a lot too.

Our daughters have been talking about the Versailles tour ever since. Thank you for a memorable trip!

Great experience, Yaëlle was a very knowledgeable guide and very good with the kids. I would definitely recommend, and highly recommend booking multiple excursions with them as they’ll help put a more comprehensive plan together and single tour guide throughout makes the experience better.

Of all the things we did in Paris, the Versailles Family Private Tour was my daughter's favorite!! Our tour guide was incredible with our 12-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son. We all learned so much from her vast amount of knowledge of Versailles and anything else we asked her. I researched many, many companies but choose Meet the Locals because they seemed to be a smaller, less commercial company and because of how helpful and responsive they were over online chat before I booked. We did 2 different private tours with Meet the Locals and it was the best money we spent in Paris!!

We weren’t sure if hiring a private guide to tour Versailles with our nine year was worth it. Well, here we are 24-hours after our tour with Ms. Laurine and Meet the Locals - and I can say without reservation, our five hour tour was one of the highlights of any vacation experience we have ever had as a family. And we’ve traveled to a lot of places with our daughter.

Ms. Laurine was just great. So kind and gentle with our shy daughter. She was generous with her time and even joined us for lunch in the town of Versailles after our tour.

I can’t say powerfully enough what a great experience we had. We will use Meet the Locals again, and most definitely seek out another tour with Ms. Laurine.

I can honestly say the Meet the Locals tour was one of the best vacation/holiday/tour experiences we have ever spent money on.
