We did not love this tour. It was over 40 min late starting for one. Many people had lunch reservations pre-planned so they had to leave the group early. The tour had too many people and moved too slow to keep us engaged. For the money I expected much more.

Booked this just to get priority access. Guide was late and his two staff who came earlier literally said “you just have to wait” in the icy cold wind outside

This trip was outstanding. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and tried his best to include everyone in the group. Slight hiccup was latecomers held us up. I learned so much about the Palace, it's history and all the louies. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip

Wonderful opportunity to learn and enjoy the palace at your time and attention. Fabulous hearing the info and patience with questions. Original meeting point was way to crowded, many tour guides and I didn’t know who I was meeting. So, I’m called the La Vacanza Travel #. Didn’t mean to get the gentleman in trouble. However, La Vacanza Travel didn’t get a good way for 3 strangers to meet in 1000 pple. Maybe a name tak, shirt, jacket, different specific location or hold up ur time home with a certain picture? Either way, we got a fabulous guided tour and wonderful info where to go next 😉
