Had wanted to visit versailles since watching TV drama and wasn't disappointed. Our guide was so knowledgeable and pleasant, explaining in great detail every part of the tour, answering questions as we went along. The rooms and gardens are stunning. Taking the quided tour meant we avoided the very long entrance queue and had some structure to the visit. Highly recommend.

Isabelle was a very knowledgeable guide who provided lots of interesting information, and I liked the that whole tour was very well organized. We missed our train, but the company was reachable through phones and gave us alternatives to still make it to our palace tour on time. I would recommend this tour!
