Get to know more about us..

Dear Visitors,

Welcome on board!

As most of the French, I was raised from my childhood in the spirit of Liberty inherited from The French revolution. I grew to realise only recently that my country, France, was forged, over the millenia, by the might of monarchical power.

Not only in Versailles, but everywhere in France the roots of the royal power is still present nowadays including in the home of the modern Republic: The Palace of the French President itself. Yes The Elysee Palace, located right in the heart of Paris, was built & offered nearly 300 years ago by the Bourbon King: Louis XV to his first favorite mistress… Maybe easier to understand where our reputation comes from with this fact!

This place, built under The Bourbon Kings, as many others lovely sights in France, remains a strategic point of the french power since the Bourbon Kings to the Fifth Republic and its Presidents…

With that realization, in 2016, I founded Paris To Versailles Private Tours to share, with you, my passion for my country: La France.

Four years on, Paris To Versailles Private Tours survived COVID 19 and has become more than just a tour company, but the N°1 provider of luxury guided experiences in the Palace of Versailles, with a repertoire of thematic district tours, museum visits, luxury shopping tours and lifestyle experiences all inspired by the monarchy and France’s l’art de vivre.

With success has come growth and development, but today, with my incredible team of guides and chauffeurs, our mission remains the same: to be the showcase of French know-how.

Choose your transportation option to move in & around Paris

We let you the possibility to choose your most efficient way to move in & around Paris. While most of our clients choose the best quality price option (2 ways transport), our wealthier client prefer a driver at full disposal:

2 ways transport: The driver and guide are still just for you. The vehicle is used to transport you and your family from the different points (from/to hotel/Museum, etc ). However, the driver doesn’t stay at your full disposal when you are visiting the Museums. It means that you need to respect our schedule, can not be back earlier and can not leave anything in the vehicle. This option doesn’t work if you need us to provide a baby car seat or want to leave a baby seat in the vehicle. However if your baby car seat is the part of a baby stroller there is no problem: you can choose this option. Strollers are allowed in Versailles Palace. It is the best quality price option from door to door choosen by 90% of our clients.

Transport at Full disposal: The driver stays with us at disposal even during the tour when we are inside the Museum. If you change your mind and want to move the planning, it is possible. You can shorten the visit and leave anything in the vehicle. The vehicle is yours. It is the most confortable option espacilly if you want to have a car seat in the vehicle (please write a note in your booking).

For both service, we use the same drivers and vehicles. Both are designed for an optimal experience.
