Little too long on the mythology and paintings significance, more info needed on the lives of Louis X1V and Marie Antoinette and more time in Gsrden so should plus 30 min on tour time to allow more time as we had only 5 min in the garden after a mini break / drink etc .

Fabio was a great tour guide. No complaints. We were shown all the “important stuff” and then given about an hour of free time to explore the gardens. Very well structured and very informative. Perfect if you don’t want to spend all day there. I do wish we had just a little more time to explore the gardens or maybe stop at a cafe in the gardens for a bite to eat. If this spot ranks high on your list, and you want the luxury of time to explore, maybe opt for something else. But this tour was perfect for our needs. We saw the regal apartments and hall of mirrors, then went straight to the golf carts and toured the gardens. Golf carts are slow - I would recommend renting a bike instead (but bike rental was not near the gardens entrance). Overall I was extremely happy with this tour and I highly recommend!

The setting was as promised. Very beautiful. It was very busy, lots of people, hard to navigate the crowds at times. Our tour guide was overwhelmed, left us standing in a group in the sun for over 30 minutes while she ran around looking for something. When someone asked about a restroom, she was very short and said “the more questions you ask me, the longer we are going to be delayed here.” We only got about 15 mins to explore the gardens.
