The guided tour was very nice and well

The guide was nice and helpful. Our grandson (10) enjoyed A LOT being told he was going to be Louis XIV for the visit! The guide was clever giving interesting information but not too many dates and historical details. She kept to a simple presentation which suited the family fine.

I enjoyed the tour that I made since my seven year old son went along and the tour guide made him feel special by making it seem we went back in time. I would definitely come back on a day other than Thursday since there are no garden shows or light show.

Very good.

As advised, we arrived at the meeting spot at 10:30 for our tour which was scheduled for 10:45. The guide arrived a few minutes after 10:45. He advised me that it was not necessary to arrive 15 minutes ahead of time. As the tour time approached, I was just concerned that somehow there was a miscommunication. Otherwise, the tour and guide were great.
