Paris Versailles Excursion Reviews

Even though the Chateau de Versailles has been known as the epitome of indulgent luxury for centuries, seeing it in person is a jaw-dropping experience, a must-see site!

Versailles was beautiful as always.
Versailles was beautiful as always. This was our third visit to Versailles in five years but our first to see the indoor theater. It was a totally different tour of Versailles made just for Uniworld guests and it was worth it.

Great overview of a fascinating place.
Great overview of a fascinating place. The entire castle is gilded in gold, and you can easily see why the French citizens revolted! It's a very interesting site to see and I highly recommend.
