The driver was friendly and kind. Loved him! The guide was extremely interesting and entertaining. The 90 min tour seemed long and was a lot of standing around. After about 60 minutes, I was ready to be finished. Again, the stories were interesting and Versailles is special place but everything is so ornate and the rooms all kinda look the same to a neophyte. The food at Angelina’s (restaurant inside Versailles) was EXCELLENT but the service was slow and the atmosphere bland.
