Vincent was fantastic! We will definitely hire him in the future. He was incredibly knowledgeable and truly took the time to help us understand French history. We spent the day with Vincent at Versailles. It was the best tour of the palace we have ever taken. My wife and I had been to Versailles several times, but this time, we decided to take our 14 year old nephew. When occasionally our nephew grew bored, Vincent would sense it and move the subject to topics that interested him. We loved our tour!
