Versailles is an amazing place but what made the tour great was Hugo. Lots of fun, and very knowledgeable. Quick to answer questions and you can tell he knows his way around. Easy to find the tour. Highly recommended.

Beyond being lavish or beautiful, this palace is a MUST SEE. The history, the opulence, the excess is stunning. Each room out does another. Make sure to notice the various marbles and ceilings!!
