(6 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Versailles, Paris

This private tour of Paris and Versailles features expert-led touring in sophisticated Paris and exclusive access to the palace and gardens of Versailles outside public opening hours.

Begin in Versailles with accommodation at Airelles Chateau de Versailles Le Grand Controle, an exquisite luxury hotel on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. Enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the Hall of Mirrors and other rooms in the opulent palace. Other after-hours options include the gardens of Versailles, the Petit Trianon, Grand Trianon and the Hameau de la Reine, the mock hamlet created for Marie-Antoinette. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can make reservations for spa appointments, afternoon tea and a dinner inspired by feasts from the court of Versailles. We can also arrange private touring of the markets, antiques shops and other highlights in the town of Versailles.

Continue to Paris. Stay at one of the city’s luxurious palace hotels, and enjoy private touring customized to your interests. Among the city's most interesting neighborhoods, markets, boutiques, specialty food shops, gardens, museums and other attractions, we recommend the following. Walk among centuries-old mansions on exclusive Ile Saint-Louis. See iconic Notre Dame and the remarkable stained-glass windows of Sainte-Chapelle. Explore the backstreets of Montmartre, and climb the steps to the Sacre Coeur Basilica for panoramic views. Stroll the cobblestone streets of Le Marais, a historic neighborhood known for its medieval buildings, fashionable boutiques, elegant homes and vibrant bistros. Wander the old Jewish quarter to the Place des Vosges, one of the city’s most beautiful squares. See the art treasures of museums such as the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, l'Orangerie and Fondation Louis Vuitton. Visit smaller specialty museums such as Musee Jacquemart-Andre, Musee Nissim de Camondo and the Rodin Museum. Enjoy reservations at top restaurants and perhaps dine at one of the restaurants in the Eiffel Tower. Stroll the Latin Quarter, and relax in the Luxembourg Gardens. Shop exclusive boutiques along Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore and Rue Royale. Take a break at Left Bank cafes made famous by poets and philosophers, and stop in the church of Saint-Germain-des-Pres.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange personalized shopping (antiques, flea markets, haute couture, tea, copperware and cooking utensils, chocolate, fashion and more), cooking lessons, degustation gastronomique meals at leading fine dining restaurants, art tours, and other insider experiences.

This tour can be fully customized, and it can also be extended to include additional destinations in France.
