We too are going on this tour in mid-Sept. Hopefully someone going earlier will let us know what EXACTLY is covered in the "complimentary" Versailles pass provided at the hotel. Is it good for 2 days (arriving day vefore tour)? Also, in Paris, EXACTLY what is covered in 1/2 day sight-seeing bus tour?. How long does it last?, Can you be dropped off at a spot at the end? Someone asked about entries to museums & attractions. All the websites recommend buying passes ahead of time, but we don't know what we will need passes for (in other words, what will Tauck provide, and what do we need to provide for ourselves? Thank you.[/quote
Peg, are you on the tour that arrives in Versailles on Sept 19? My hubby and I will be on that one. We are arriving one day early in Versailles and staying one day later in Paris. From what I understand, the half day tour is a "drive by" tour that ends around noon. You need to go back later in the day to see stuff and get your own tickets. That's why we are staying an extra day. The Louve is closed one of the 2 days that we are in Paris.
I plan to do a lot of research on the internet to see about tickets for things. And also contact the concierge at the hotel where we will be staying.
If you are on the same trip with us, John and I would love to get in contact with you and make some plans to meet each other before the tour begins.
