    Our guide, Phillipe, from Guidatours was excellent. The palace is magnificent and he brought it's rich history alive with his professional discourse. Highly recommended! Leave time to enjoy the gardens and take a golf cart trip around the extensive grounds.

    My mother, sister and I went on this guided tour and enjoyed it. Our guide was knowledgeable (but maybe a little long winded are times). It’s a totally different experience getting details of what you’re seeing.

    I’m not sure. That is the route we took to go to Versailles. We have family there so we made the trip several times. We came back late one night. So it got us half way there. We then took an Uber the rest of the way to our... More
