This was a tour experience which could not have been better. From being picked up at our hotel and meeting a phenomenal tour guide (Anna) upon arrival, we could not have asked for more. I wish we could rate it higher than a 5! Anna was not only personable and extremely knowledgeable, she was brimming with interest and enthusiasm which brought each room and observation to vivid life. It was a living history tour full of fascinating perspectives and engaging details. You could not ask for a better tour experience!

Our tour with Venez and our guide, Anna was outstanding. Having our transportation taken care of and Anna meeting us and doing our tour made our trip to Paris so special. Anna was delightful, knowledgeable and truly inspiring.

It is hard to single out one thing, Versailles is an amazing place. It was made more so by our guide, Sylvie. She is exceptionally knowledgable and had stories that made the visit more memorable. Highly recommend her. In addition, my wife and I appreciated the arrangements La Vacanza Travel made for the ride back to our hotel. Another outstanding employee of La Vacanza Travel. Definately enjoyed talking PSG and football in general on the way back to the hotel.

Our guide Verana really made the experience special. We covered a lot of territory: the palace, grounds and Trianon. Her knowledge of Versailles, and the people and politics that created it, was fascinating. This experience is highly recommended.
