the best way to see Versailles. No lines. they ;uich was fabulous and connor our tour guide was so knowledgeable and helpful.
Absolute rip off. The so called private rooms were a waste of time and not interesting or richly decorated at all. It was like going through the service and admin areas of the palace. Also the lunch with the vegetables from the kings garden was merely a buffet restaurant in a normal cafe. Not special at all. Very disappointed.
