I cancelled and you still charged me. There was no ability to communicate with you. I have had good experiences with your company in the past. When I get home next week I am going to investigate my options to get my money back.

Myriam was an excellent tour guide and we had an amazing time! She showed my wife and I around Versailles as well as the Petite Trianon. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and was able to explain a lot of the history behind Versailles. The Chateau itself is spectacular, but the guided tour definitely elevated the experience. Myriam also gave us some excellent tips for other things to do around Paris and made sure we had a great time. I would highly recommend it.

Myriam is an absolute legend. The tour was educational, fast paced, and FUN! We really went there to learn about the history and lore of the French monarchy so this tour was a great choice for us. Do. Not. Miss. The. Trianons. It’s a must.
