Isabelle helped steer us through Versailles - despite all of the people there we were able to explore the gardens and fountains in relative peace and enjoy the fountain shows. She provided great context for the grounds as well as the palace. We would have missed many of the unique fountains in the gardens without her guidance and timing.
