Pickup from our hotel is very straightforward. We are a very crowd of 4 people and the driver. Once we got to Versailles, we met our guide. She is pretty intense and I admire her passion. Everything pretty smooth-sailing. The live commentary is just enough for me. I wasn't overwhelmed. This is not my first visit to the chateau. She kept my attention. I am not known for a long attention span. Great job there!

Mini-van pickup was easy way to see this tour, super guide knowledge of palace. Nice time in the garden.

Palace was beautiful but La Vacanza Travel could have ensured that we had a lunch available instead of waiting in a long line & missing most of time available for the Gardens. And should have arranged a pick up at our hotel. We were the only ones in the group who were NOT picked up at our hotel! Also would have been helpful to be escorted to the Gardens.

The friendly local driver picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off a hundred meters or so from the front gate of Versailles where our friendly local tour guide met us. We skipped the ticket line, went through security and were on our way. We toured inside Versailles with the tour guide and the gardens on our own. The driver and the tour guide were both very friendly and really enjoyed sharing their knowledge with our family. It was like spending a day with friends. The tour guide made the tour interesting and fund for all ages. Would I do it again? Without a doubt.
