Julie was a knowledgeable and passionate guide, and added greatly to our Versailles experience! She provided concise information, historical context, useful insights, and kept the group well organized and at a good pace.

Versailles workers went on strike. The tour guide did not show up. We apparently received no notice from La Vacanza Travel. We are due a refund. Our other La Vacanza Travel experiences were quite good so we've rebooked for tomorrow. How about some consideration for our expenses and troule. Does anyone read these?

Thé palace is stunning. The guide was very well informed but the tour was packed and it was a lot of waiting around considering we were skip the line

What a wonderful experience ❤️ The guided tour of the Palace was super and amazing. We visited the garden's after the Palace and we didn't want to leave. Congratulations to our guide

We had an early entry and it paid off. Even in late September the lines got very long, but we were able to go right through. It's easiest to visit without a bag of any kind as you do have to go through security. It was pretty simple even with a small purse. The facility is magnificent. I will return another time for the gardens. It just didn't fit into our schedule this trip.
