The trip from the Airport to the hotel was great. I was the last person dropped off - which was great. I got to see the different neighborhoods. The driver was on time, it was an easy comfortable trip.
My guide was FANTASTIC. She was so personable and friendly. Her knowledge of the Palace, history and stories made the trip. I felt like I had known her forever. She had a good sense of humor and clearly enjoyed doing her job. It made the entire experience so much better than just having a tour guide. Versailles was crowded beyond belief but we maneuvered our way around and had a great tour. I would recommend doing this to anyone who asked.
The driver was on time (3 am), but pick up time seemed early but I could live with it. The driver was strange. It was a single car with just me and the driver spoke no English at all. I didn't know the terminal number for my flight and he became very aggravated. He made me use the iPad to find it and got frustrated when I couldn't find the information, He stopped the car twice to try and find it. Then he made several calls - in the meantime I am in the back seat trying to find it as well. When I finally found it and showed him on the phone - he said "same, same - I know " (only English I heard him speak) . Then we hit a traffic jam outside of the airport because of a car accident. Again, he got very agitated - he was clearly cursing or mumbling in French, and banging the steering wheel, shaking his head. He kept letting out long sighs. When we finally got to the airport - at 3:45 the entire place is closed. He finds the door, says something in French and leaves me there? There were points during the drive I was worried he was going to leaving me along the road - he clearly had a bit of a temper and very little patience.
