Amazing tour for teenagers and adults - so interesting, engaging and informative. Even out 17 year old daughter who is in that "I'm not impressed by anything phase" loved this tour and can't stop talking about it. We met our guide at 9:30am on a Saturday and went straight to get a golf cart. The grounds are massive and this is the only way you will get to see them in a short amount of time (we spent an hour driving around while Kotryna told us about the history of the grounds, described the mythology behind the statues and kept the kids entertained with anecdotes about life at the Court of the Sun King. When Kotryna went in to get the tickets (guides have to get them at a special location) she dropped us at an indoor cafe where we could warm up (it was the end of November) and get a snack and a coffee. By this time the line to get into the chateau was wrapping around the courtyard, but it you are with a guide, you have a special entrance, so no waiting. Once again Kotryna kept us all engaged with stories about the building, history and people of Versailles. There wasn't a single question that my history loving 15 year old could ask that she couldn't answer. While it was crowded (Kotryna assured us that the November crowds are nothing compared to summer crowds) I never felt rushed or really noticed because Kotryna was so engaging and always had some unique feature to show us or story to tell. I can't recommend Kotryna enough - so worth the money for a private tour!!!
