The tour was magnificent. It was a very crowded day, but we cut through the line and our guide conducted a very personal and in depth tour of the palace and surrounding buildings. She was extremely knowledgeable about both the history and all the artifacts in the many rooms of the palace. This, coupled with being almost the only people in the rooms was wonderful - no crowds. This was especially great in the great hall of mirrors and the chapel. The tour left on time and departed on time. The guides and driver were exceptionally friendly and helpful. This tour was the highlight of my week in Paris.
