Our tour of Versailles was amazing. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. She was very enthusiastic and high energy. Her English was excellent. She was able to tell us all about what we were seeing and was able to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Versailles.

Bad start as joining instructions were incorrect (or not clear) and do need to be altered.
That said the guide was superb and extremely knowledgeable and explained it perfectly.
We had travelled over from UK for a two day trip just to see Versailles and would highly recommend your service.
That said the guide rather suddenly left us around mid day when there were other rooms and buildings to see (which we did ourselves) so I do feel it is very misleading to describe the trip as "full day".
