This was expensive but every euro was justified. We were fortunate at Versailles to get the services of an extremely well informed, entertaining and instructive Palace archivist whose use of English was excellent and whose ownership of a master set of keys took our select group of eight to parts of the Chateau well away from those experienced by the average queuing tourists. And being a Saturday we got the additional benefit of the musical fountains in the gardens.
We managed to get a table for an early lunch at the excellent Italian terrace restaurant before the horrendous queues developed - given the popularity of this eatery it would have been useful to have the option of a table reservation made with the tour or through our courier on the day
