Trip was very good. The guide picked us up at the hotel right on time. Once we arrived at Versailles we had the opportunity to stroll the gardens for an hour before we entered the palace. Once we entered the palace our guide made sure that we understood the history of the palace And how it and the nobility that lived there and their impact on France. Very informative and entertaining.

The traffic out of Paris is dense, but our driver Walter was great. Very informative and carried a conversation with ease. Highly recommend!
