Perfect for visiting Versailles with a very professional guide who knows how to put us in the context of history. A great time even if the price is still very high for half a day .....

FERNANDA, a super nice, dynamic, interesting and attentive guide, made us discover this magnificent site. Our little girls (10 and 14) and ourselves were overwhelmed by this day.

Nice visit very rich in information. Myriam was available throughout the visit to immerse us in the history of the place.

Thanks to the Covid, there were only 2 of us with our guide! A real pleasure
