A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing day with Susanne touring Versailles! Susanne struck just the right balance of history, culture and fun for our family of six--children ranging in ages from 10-17. She was flexible and accommodating! I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with Susanne.
