Full day tour of Versailles was amazing!
“My husband and I booked a private tour to Versailles with Hidden Gems for a full day so that we could really experience the many special things beyond just the palace. Our day was beyond perfect, made more so by our fabulous guide Anna-Maria.
Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about Versailles, but her clear passion for what she does was infectious.
She was delightful to be with, and always mindful of how we were experiencing things. She endeavored to give us some more intimate experiences away from all the crowds which made it very special.”
