Ms. Aliette is the best and most personable tour guide we’ve had across all the tours in all 8 countries we’ve visited in the last month! Not only was this lady so knowledgeable but she made sure everyone on the tour got the best pictures in Versailles! Ask for Aliette!

Isabella was knowledgeable about France and it’s history during the reign of Louis the 14-15 and interspersed her talk with humour. She was approachable and led the group in a timely manner leaving time for photos . I’m short she was an excellent tour guide with good English for this English speaking tour .

I was so glad I did research on how to get to Versailles without getting a fine for not having the right ticket on the RER. I would recommend buying a dedicated train ticket to there and back from whatever RER station you leave from. Once at the ‘get my guide’ office it was really easy to find our guide and where we were going. Milan was real funny and very informative! I was really relieved that we had a good guide and the ease of getting in the palace was awesome. Our guide had a lot of jokes and we really enjoyed all the learning opportunities.
