The meeting location was easy to find. The bus was very comfortable and we enjoyed looking at the scenery on the way. Once at Versailles, we met our tour guide, Gabrielle. She was fantastic! She shared so much with us during our time with her. The gardens were nice but it was January and raining so spring/summer would be better. Overall, a great tour!

The tour to and of Versailles was excellent. The bus left and returned on time. All was very well organized. The tour guide was outstanding although she spoke a bit rapidly. There was enough time at the end of the tour to see a bit of the magnificent garden. All in all, a good introduction to Versailles.
