The coordinator Victoria arrived 25 minutes late. She was dirty, disheveled and didn’t communicate any of the logistics. Some of the guests who she gathered in Paris were already irate with her. We finally entered the palace at 10:35. While Ed was pleasant and informative. This half day tour ended 1:15.

Valerie was fantastic! She was funny and engaging and knowledgeable. Decent bit of walking (obviously) with most of it seemingly outside in the gardens as you go by different fountains. Felt a bit rushed in the gift shop, but other than that, it was a steady paced tour inside the palace. Outside was great, too... the nice weather didn't hurt at all. But, above all, Valerie was the star of the show!
