About the tour

What makes Versailles so beautiful? Garden lovers will know it's all down to the immaculate and spectacular fountains, topiaries and statutes that make up the 2000+ acres of this famous royal estate. On this tour we’re going to pick out the most iconic sights and tales to delight the passionate horticulturalists and history lovers among you. Luckily for us we are spoilt for choice with over 55 fountains, 600 water features, 155 statues and legendary stories stretching back centuries to choose from! Our local expert, Florent, will take us to see the likes of the grand canal, the Orangery (pictured above) and a number of secret groves in-between. We hope you're ready for an amazing live-streamed visit.


Meet your local guide

Florent

It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self declared history, art and archaeology buff. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and dirty secrets) of Paris with you!

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

Enjoyed Florent’s tour immensely. He is extremely well informed of the location and it’s history.

Florent walked us through a little of the gardens of Versailles. There was weak WiFi in the orangery so the picture quality was poor until he walked up the staircase. Only saw two of the four statue/fountains of the major rivers of France. Could not see the frogs and turtles in the lower fountain very well. He was very knowledgeable and informative, and I would take a live tour with him when possible.

Delightful to listen to his talk. Unfortunately rain dimmed the view a bit and flowers were not planted due to Covid19 situation I chose to watch on my Kindle which was not a good decision. Will use my laptop for future tours.
