My mother and I enjoyed another day with our guide from the 25th, Yvonne. She pointed out interesting facts as we rode through the old Norman town of Vernon, and as she led us through the misty rain to Monet's home and garden. We especially liked the way that she pronounced, then spelled, the various names, and we felt that she was very knowledgeable. At Versailles, we were in awe of our surroundings and could almost relate to life of Marie Antoinette, either from Yvonne's description or the fact that we had recently watched Hollywood's most recent version of "Marie Antoinette!"
My mother and I were up by 4:15 a.m. to be certain that we would be on time for our first tour. Our guide, Yvonne, did a fantastic job throughout the day, and we learned many interesting facts at all three locations. We absolutely fell in love with Chenonceau! And, we would definitely recommend this tour company--our guide was proficient in English and our driver provided a safe, comfortable trip.
