Great tour at Versailles. The crowds were nuts but our guide Andres got us through and we even had a little quiet in the great hall before a huge crowd came in. Andres was funny and knowledgeable about all of the history. Glad we had a tour! The Gardens were incredible after too. Make time to walk it. Hours even.

A friendly guide guided our group past the long lines and straight into the heart of the museum. Recommended experience! Good to be prepared for fast-paced walking in a crowd.
