Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
AU$ 4,276

Spend over a week visiting Paris and the region of Alsace. Start your journey in Paris where you’ll enjoy a private tour of Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower, and Versailles. Cruise the Seine and visit the Louvre after hours for a wine tasting. Then head to Strasbourg on the border with Germany to explore its old town and the surrounding region.


This 8-day French vacation takes you to Paris and Strasbourg to explore French history and culture. It features first-class accommodations, a mix of private and small group tours, and is ideal for first-time visitors to France. 

Your journey begins in Paris, the City of Light and the one of the most beloved spots on the planet. Delve into the heart of Bohemian Paris with a tour through Montmartre, ending with a visit to Sacre-Coeur. Then swing over the Eiffel Tower to ride to the second level to enjoy magnificent views over the city and then board a cruise vessel for a one-hour cruise along the Seine. The next day, head just outside of Paris for a private morning tour of the Palace of Versailles. Tour the opulent former home of the Sun King Louis XIV and explore the manor apartments, Hall of Mirrors, and landscaped grounds. Another day, head to the Louvre after most tourists have left for the day and enjoy a tour by night. See masterworks like the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo without the crowds and enjoy a wine tasting as you do so. 

Head to the train station and ride the train to Strasbourg, the French city near the border with Germany. A two-hour private tour of the old town will introduce you to the unique culture of Strasbourg and showcase landmarks such as the Maison Kammerzell, the Place Gutenberg, St. Thomas Church, and the Palais Rohan. While based in Strasbourg, you’ll also head on a private tour of the surrounding landscape of Alsace. Discover one of France’s most beautiful pastoral lands and visit the town of Colmar, Haut-Koenisbourg Castle, and several villages along the wine route. 

At the end of your stay in Strasbourg, you’ll head to the train station to connect to your next destination.

Stroll on your own through the narrow streets of Montmartre to discover the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris as well as the artists and portrait painters of Place du Tertre.

Duration5 Hours
Day 3

Versaille Private Morning Tour

Leave your Paris accommodation at 8 a.m. for a minibus journey to Versailles; arrival scheduled for around 9 a.m. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of eight to allow you to enjoy a tailor-made excursion with your driver-guide.

One of the most famous historic monuments in the world, the Palace of Versailles was the official residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts from 1682 to 1789. Your guide will show you the majestic Palace of Versailles, a symbol of the king's power. Its Baroque architecture, sumptuous decoration, works of art, and furniture were all created by the greatest artisans of the age. After touring the palace, explore the magic of its formal gardens and exceptionally beautiful grounds.

The Palace of Versailles has more than 700 rooms and stretches for over 721,000 square feet. Follow your guide straight to the front of the line to visit the palace's most beautiful rooms: the King's Grand Apartments, with seven rooms dedicated to different gods (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.), and the Queen's Grand Apartments, mirroring those of the king, which include the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others. Also, admire the grandeur of the Versailles Hall of Mirrors, a unique room in which guests were received and impressed, designed by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was created to dazzle visitors to the Sun King, Louis XIV; it is lit by 17 windows and some 350 mirrors, and overlooks the palace's breath-taking gardens, the second part of your visit.

In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned the landscape architect André Le Nôtre to lay out the grounds and gardens, something that was just as important to the king as the construction of the palace itself. Enjoy your free time strolling through the Gardens of Versailles and admire the 386 works of art (including more than 200 statues), fountains, flower beds, ponds, and trees. During the Summer months, a range of activities are organized, such as the Grandes Eaux Musicales, when the fountains are made to dance to music.

You will return to your Paris accommodation at approximately 12 noon.
