I was very pleased with the tour. We were able to experience a nice train ride while being informed on a bit of the history of Versailles. It was a great way for us to feel comfortable getting there since we didn't know much of any French. The guide walked us through the gardens and gave us some recommendations on local eateries. For our first time this was the most ideal way for us to experience it with ease, I'd highly recommend.

By my mistake, I thought that the tour included a bus to Versailles but we had to go by train, then the things that the tour guide told us were super entertaining and interesting! The only bad thing is that after he left and we were left alone there, on the way back there was no train service due to a failure, and we didn't know how to get back, it was super terrible since we don't speak the language, if you don't know French I recommend you buy a tour that does include a round trip.

The whole trip was very successful, the guide was very good at telling and took care of the trip. I only have reservations about marking the place of the collection. It was not precise, so I had a problem with getting to the designated place of collection. I saw other people also walking around looking for a guide.
