Magnificent places. Our guide Pablo was very friendly, with good French. We were a couple and a family of 4 so small group very well. There is enough to cool off almost throughout the visit thanks to the fountains. Both the palace and the gardens are magnificent. We were lucky enough to see peacocks.

A very interesting tour! It was a good pace and a good length on a very hot day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us as cool as possible as he moved us around to different parts of the palace. A great experience.

Our guide Pablo was incredible! So much knowledge! He really made the history of the cathedral come to life and made us appreciate the place much more than we would have on our own. He was also very funny and entertaining.
