The pickup driver, the guide, and the return driver DO NOT COMMUNICATE with each other and so we were dropped off with NO GUIDANCE OF OUR PREPAID TOUR. After spending $$$ on foreign telephone calls we finally knew about our guide. We were notified that our pickup was 20 minutes earlier and yet we had to wait 30 minutes for the guide to show up.

Instead of an efficient company, they piece meal the segments and each segment DOES NOT HAVE answers about the other two. WE WILL NEVER USE VIATOR AGAIN. We like one stop shopping where the entire tour is handled by the same people and who know what is going on. Our experience was a cluster #$%^; however, once we got inside for our tour things went well. HOWEVER, finding the tour guide was a very frustrating experience. Why get picked up 20 minutes early when you had to wait 30 minutes in a location for hopefully the guide to show up. The driver knew nothing except where to drop us off. HE KNEW NOTHING ELSE and had no communication with the tour guide. As I said before, it was a big "cluster $%%^".

I was driven from my hotel to Versailles (with 7 other people in a van). The driver gave us background information and friendly conversation on the way. At the chateau we met our guide, Valerie. We were a small but diverse group and Valerue took good care of all of us. The chateau was beautiful....the king's apertments, the queen's apartments and, of course, the Hall of Mirrors connecting them. Behind the chateau are the gardens, fountains, canals, statuary, etc. The size, scope and beauty of the "backyard" are beyond imagination. What a wonderful day!!!
