Veronica is extremely knowledgeable and very talented at explaining complicated French history in an uncomplicated manner. Our family had a great day at Versailles with Veronica and we learned so much. Highly recommended!

Veronica did an amazing job showing us around the Palace at Versailles and more importantly, the gardens. There is no way we would have seen some of the most beautiful sections of the gardens without her guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comment, I'm so happy that you like it. But the most important thing in a visit, is the interest of the client. If he is, the Tour becomes a good one. Thanks again and happy of meeting you.

Good tour guide. She helps you understand a bit what it was like to be in the palace in the 17th and 18th century. She also is good at helping you understand what makes the style of the furnishings distinctive. I also liked how she personalized the tour by bringing out features she herself enjoys.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I'm very happy when people are interested in the visit and appreciate it. I find that it is so important to make people feel how it was to live in those day !!!! not very agreeable even if you were rich !!! thanks again, Veronica
We had a great time with Veronica + experience the glamour of Versailles. Veronica was fabulous in coordinating our trip with the rail network down, we caught a taxi and another drive through Paris on our way out to Versailles. There was minimal waiting in line, although people everywhere. Veronicas knowledge of the Palace, paintings, architecture and lifestyle was thoroughly amazing. We learnt so much and loved being able to wander the gardens. Truly magnificent and Veronica made it even more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your nice words !!!!! It was a really marvelous moment that we pass together, and this is thanks to you, and a bit part, thanks to me ....... I hope so !!!! I wish you a marvelous Year and hope to see you again, on day ?????
Veronica was terrific. Very very detailed tour, patient and very good english. She even managed to procure us an extra ticket last minute from Versailles. Was a memorable experience. Thank you Veronica!!! Eric & Laura
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much at you for your comment. If the guide is good, this is most of all, thanks to the person that she have in front, if he is interested and agreeable to speak too. So thanks to you Veronica
Veronica went out of her way to make sure we were all comfortable. She was very pleasant and informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so happy that you appreciated the visit. Thanks so much Veronica

We thought that Veronica tried hard but did not connect with my wife and me. Her English is poor. She never really asked us about what we wanted to see and would speak on random topics throughout the day. We see Tours by locals as a broker and don't think there can be good standards when you charge so much for a poor guide. In the future we will try to find our own guides directly. I apologize for such a critical review but we really feel that our tour was not very well run.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry that you were deceived by the Tour. But I did the Tour as I always do and there are few possibilities to change something. You looked happy with the Tour. If you look at the opinion about my visit of Versailles, you will see that most of the people appreciate it. About my English, nearly always, clients find that my English is very good as I'm not English and never lived in an English Country. English is my third language. Still yesterday, the clients found that I knew a lot.

Veronica was a wonderful guide!! My husband and I were amazed at the history that Veronica shared about Versailles and the gardens. It was a fantastic day .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, It have been a very, very nice day, for me too. When you have people that are very interested and agreeable to speak to, you give the most you can. I'm so please that you have appreciated the visit. Thanks and hope to see you again, one day, here or in Argentina ??? in some year more. .......
Ronald NissenUnited States
We were on a cruise that visited at 8 different ports. Of these 8 ports we scheduled 7 tours with Tours By Locals. The tour we took with Veronica was by far the best of all the tours. Not to say the others were not great as they were. Veronica was very knowledgeable and a delight. We visited and saw so much of Versailles that we would not have seen or even known to see if we had not had Veronica. She was awesome as was the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I don't know what happened, I was sure to have thanks you, but my message didn't pass !!!!! thanks so much for your comment and I'm so glad that you love the visit, it is so agreeable to see that someone is so happy to have follow the visit. I hope to meet you again, if in 5 years or more, you decide to visit Argentina, you can find my number phoning to any same last name in BA, they are all family !!! a huge one ...... Thanks again
The tour was good, specially the second part, we think we missed some historic information, maybe Veronica doesn't have enough patient, also we feel uncomfortable many times when she told other tourist things they don't have to do inside Versailles, and we believe is not her responsibility to do that. She lost focus in the explanation because of that. We lost time listening discussions between Veronica and other tourist that really we don't care
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lo siento mucho de que no todo fue de su agrado, pero no tuve la impresión de que lo estaban pasando mal. Me gustaría saber cuales son the historic information, pues así, podría buscar y aprender sobre estas informaciones. Es que me preguntaron ? y yo no supe contestar ? no recuerdo. Tendré en cuenta su comentario, la próxima vez. Muchas gracias por su comment.

Veronica is fluent in English; we had no problem understanding her. She is very knowledgeable about Versailles, French history, and the history of the French kings. Her tour is by public transportation (the Metro, and then a train) which we found more interesting than just driving in a car. She met us at our hotel and accompanied us back to the Metro stop near our hotel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thanks for your comment. I hope that you weren't too tired. I also had a very nice day thanks to you.

My Granddaughter and I appreciated Veronica's knowledge of Versailles and getting us around in a comfortable manner. Would definitely use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your comment helps me to find a good way to visit Versailles without making you walk so much. Thanks you so much.
Todd WittmanUnited States
Veronica was great. She whisked the 6 of us us right past all the lines (saved us hours of wait time) and was very knowledgeable. She was very friendly, prompt and patient with our kids. She made sure we had a great view of all the sights inside the Chateau and expertly showed us around the gargantuan gardens area. After going, I cant imagine visiting there without her help ... in my opinion the value far exceeded the cost and i was very glad to have as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I'm so happy that you have appreciated the visit, it is so nice to have agreeable people to show them the French Treasures !!!! Thanks
Jeremy MishkinUnited States
Veronica was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and responsive to our questions and interests. She made our visit immeasurably more enjoyable, and provided a level of understanding and context that we could never have attained on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, are you back home ??? Here very warm ..... Thanks so much for your comment, I'm always happy when I see that clients are ALSO happy with the Tour, Veronica
Lucinda V FairfieldUnited States
Veronica was very informative and entertaining. She gave us interesting historical information without overwhelming us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was very nice to meet you and perhaps we shall meet, on day, in Paris a street ???? I hope that I didn't tired you too much. Thanks for you comment.
Gerald SheltonCALIFORNIA, United States
We loved the tour with Veronica. With her extensive knowledge of French History we were able to appreciate the history of Versailles and the people that lived there. She's very passionate about the property and takes great care to show her guest how to respect the building and the gardens while visiting them. She was on at the meeting place as agreed upon. There were no surprises, the cost of the train and admissions to the different sites were all arranged as agreed. We would use her again if needed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating. It have been, for me too, a very agreeable day. It was a pleasure to meet you.
