A Recent Review of this tour

Vincent is fantastic. The combination of his knowledge & personality make for a great day. Vincent knows what is important in the palace & gardens as well as the best angle from which to view them due to other visitors. So glad we did not attempt Versailles on our own. Do not hesitate to book this tour with Vincent. Money well spent.
