This is such a good way to get to Versailles from Paris. Our driver was so knowledgeable and gave us some great information before our arrival at Versailles. Our guide was terrific as well. Just the right amount of information, with some humor to keep everyone engaged.

The hall of mirrors is out of this world! Isabel was very knowledgeable and was thoughtful about the whole group. Thank you La Vacanza Travel for a great experience!

Continued to change te pick up time and then said it was our fault when we were late to their changed pickup The actual tour at palace was 1 1/2 hits with a group of fifty people difficult for guide to answer many questions actual ride is less expensive by taxi for our small group of three people

We were not picked up at our hotel as other tours were willing to do, but the driver later made up for that by taking us all the way back to said hotel in the Bastille district when most needed at the end of the tour. A very courteous and professional driver. Most memorable however was Gabriela, our intrepid tour guide through the the crowded and at times noisy Palace of Versailles. She was able to provide much color and details of the times and historical personages, such as the formal bed of Marie Antoinette and the construction of the room of mirrors. Overall, I got an impression of outrageous extravagance from this palace that led to the French Revolution, although the causes for it stretched back into the socioeconomic system and were manifold. Not to be missed when in Paris.
