Best tour we have ever taken. Use this service whenever you can! Grigor is the best tour guide we have ever used. The tour of Versailles was great because Grigor was an expert on that location. This tour company uses very very good tour guides. Easy to use would only use this service when in France. Thank you for a great experience!

Anna, our tour guide, was AMAZING. Everything was great, but there are a few things that I would highlight for the sake of brevity. First - her level of knowledge is second to none. I love stories of Versailles and I think I have watched just about every movie and documentary I can get my hands on. But the number of unique stories and anecdotes and facts she had was mind boggling. Second - her energy and enthusiasm. She really does draw you in and I cannot imagine anyone who seems more connected to the palace as she does. This energy really draws you in. Third - she doesn't take any guff from anyone. This is important because its just so crowded at Versailles and people do not know how to act, so people are either purposefully or unintentionally rude. Anna was very kindly, but assertively advocate for you, so that you can have the best experience. You cannot have a wallflower or pushover for a tourguide, and I love that Anna wasn't any of that.
