    Nous avons visité le château de Versailles dans des conditions optimales en raison de la faible affluence dûe à la crise sanitaire et du petit effectif de notre groupe - réduit à deux couples -. Notre guide a rendu la visite très intéressante et très agréable: bonne voix, bonne compagnie, très bon timing qui a même débordé l'horaire prévu.

    Guide très intéressante, donne une approche globale sur l'histoire du château. Petit bémol, j'avais demandé lors de la réservation si les visites privées étaient dedans. On m'avait répondu par l'affirmative. Il n'en n'est rien. Nous étions 2 jours sur place, donc nous avons pu réserver la visite privée du roi le lendemain, malheureusement pour la reine, plus de créneaux. Si je l'avais sù avant j'aurais pu modifier mon horaire de visite et réserver en plus la visite guidée des appartements privés de la reine. Mais aucun regret sur cette visite, bonne visite d'ensemble du château. Mes filles ont trouvé cela suffisant.

    Après un accueil professionnel et très sympathique de la part de notre hôtesse Margaux, nous sommes partis au château pour une visite privée en compagnie de notre guide Laura qui nous a transporté à l’époque du Roi Soleil pour finir la visite avec Marie-Antoinette! Une visite très vivante et intéressante pendant laquelle Laura nous a conté l’histoire du château et de ses illustres locataires. Merci Laura pour cet extraordinaire voyage !
