We were lucky to have our guide - Anastasia- to our own family of four. We have 14-YO and 11-YO boys. She was knowledgeable and patient, as well as full of stories about the kings and queens who resided at Versailles during the revolution. It was a bit tricky to find our guide. The instructions from Get Your Guide stated that the guide will be waiting at Cafe Regalia but our guide was actually across the street near the train station exit.

Truly magnificent palace wonderfully brought to life by our guide 'Z'.

We were met in Paris by our guide 'Z', who skilfully transported us via the train to Versailles. Once there, thank goodness we were able to skip the queue, and immediately begin our tour. 'Z' had given us a brief presentation on the history of the palace during our train journey, but once inside his expert knowledge and commentary was both educational and entertaining. Having completed our tour of the palace 'Z' guided us into the gardens and, after ensuring that we knew how to retrace our steps to the station and to Paris, we were free to explore the gardens at our leisure. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
