Lunch and Guided Walk in the Old Town of Versailles
Continue your visit in the historic district of Versailles, called the Saint Louis district. Take in the beauty of the Versailles Cathedral. Walk through the Carrés St-Louis, the town's old market square built under Louis XV, and see the house where that king's mistresses lived. Your guide will also point out the bakery where a demonstration march known as the 'Women's March on Versailles' began in 1789 during the French Revolution, protesting the scarcity of bread. Pay a visit to the King's Kitchen Garden, created by Louis XIV to furnish fresh produce for the palace kitchen. There, you'll visit the Royal Tennis Court, the setting for the start of the French Revolution in 1789, as well as the Municipal Library. The latter is where the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1783, establishing the independence of the United States.
This is where your tour ends, and after your meal you're free to visit the Palace of Versailles and its expansive gardens on your own. Ask your guide for tips about visiting the palace or for directions before you part ways.

The food at the restaurant is worth the price of this tour alone. It was a lovely day seeing parts of Versailles that I would not know exist like the King's gardens and the Tennis Court.
One of the best tours ever. I almost had a private tour. I would recommend for everyone.
The tour was awful. A big big disappointment. Felt cheated. I'll never book by Viator in future. Why you people fleece tourists who come with a great hope to understand the rich cultural heritage of France. The guide was was also sluggish and disinterested in the job. Why you can't be professional?
This tour was great! Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable about Versailles. Also the team at the Monument cafe were awesome and accomadating. I would definitely do this again if given the chance
Great personal tour of king's garden.
