This tour is an 8 person personal guided tour. There is a short walk from the train station to the tour office, just across the street, and a 10 minute walk to the palace. The entry process was very smooth through a separate entrance for guided tours. Our guide provided a personal radio for each of us so she could talk with us throughout the tour without shouting in the middle of the crowds. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable about French history, culture, the palace and gardens. She even shared some relevant humorous anecdotes about historical French culture and living styles. The guided tour is only a couple of hours through the main palace rooms and main garden area. You are then free to go through the palace and gardens at your own pace. This was a very nice way to see Versailles during the busy season in early May.
This was a great experience covering 6 of the main wine growing regions in France from the North to the South. The wine steward shared his extensive knowledge of the regions, land types, grapes, production and history of the regions. It was all done at a level that was understandable and memorable for all levels of wine consumers.
