Miriam was a great guide with lots of knowledge and passion. She was a great story teller and very well versed in English. The versaille gardens were beautiful to walk through

This trip needs only 3 hrs with garden visit. This is over priced and with this booking it eats up your whole day. Will recommend only half day trip.

Laetitia was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and took her time to answer all our questions. Lovely walk through history. We missed the gardens as they were just opening up for spring.
