Palace of Versailles / Versailles Gardens

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.

You cannot stand in the Hall of Mirrors without being in awe. In this impressive gallery, be dazzled by the 357 separate panels in the Hall of Mirrors. Imagine the bursting effect of the sunset, beaming through the windows upon such scenography!

It is now time to pass behind the monarchic scenes to visit the King’s inner bedchamber, preceded by the Council’s Salon where the King spent numerous hours working. Two other beautiful salons will lead you to the marble staircase that takes you to the gardens.

There is no better ending for this Versailles with Kids tour than the beautiful Versailles Gardens. Your Welcomer will lead you to the best viewpoints. At all these charming spots, you can embrace the horizon and see, in the distance, the water reflection of the Apollo Fountain. Also, you will have learned about the Royal “Etiquette” (i.e the extravagant rules of the Court) and be familiar with the craziest functions that Nobles and Courtiers held. Most importantly, be prepared to have a lot of fun!

    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.

    We have not yet completed our stay or our tours, but I already know that MTL has overdelivered so much and I have no doubt that they will continue. We received so much assistance and consideration from Dominique before we ever left the US for our first trip to Paris. She helped to create a perfect itinerary for our trip that accounted for our three kids (a tween and 2 teens). From the moment we arrived, Dominique was on top of everything. She truly is Super Woman! We met Yaelle for our Notre Dame/tuk tuk/Eiffel Tower/Siene cruise tour and she was also amazing. She took great care of us, was very patient and accommodating, and even helped us secure reservations at a great restaurant for the end of the night. ??? The next day, we met Sebastian for the teen tour of the Louvre. He immediately engaged the kids and was so entertaining and informative that they stayed off of their phones for the entire two hours (a record, I assure you). Tomorrow, we head to London for a day that Dominique put together for us and that promises to be fabulous. We are also scheduled to do a walking chocolate tour and Versailles tour before we leave, but I have no doubt whatsoever that MTL will not disappoint. DO NOT HESITATE and do not look anywhere else. Meet the Locals is THE premier provider for Paris tours, bar none.

    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!

    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.

    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!!
