Good tour guide, good tour. The tour was a pretty big group so we didn’t really connect with the guide like we have on other tours but it was a good tour, well organized and and informative.

Barbara’s knowledge and enthusiasm was inspiring and brought the experience to life. Barbara did an outstanding job of providing a picture of what an individual’s experience might have been during a visit to the palace. And the gardens were astonishingly beautiful

Sophie was fantastic. She was engaging and incredibly knowledgable of French and Versailles history (she studied hard during COVID). The linkup was super easy as the check-in was right across from the train station. I recommend the RER train from downtown Paris - inexpensive and a nice ride.
