Hugo is a wonderful, passionate, funny and very engaging guide/art historian. His insights and stories made you truly feel part of the Versailles experience

Guide had heavy accent and made it difficult for some people to understand. Guide had a lot of knowledge but it was not focused on a single story line and hard to follow history. Wish we would have learned more about the building and less about the paintings.

Excellent tour.... tour guide (Sonali) was amazing, so knowledgeable, informative and engaging. We did this tour in 36 deg heat and she was very mindful of keeping us in the shade wherever possible. We highly recommend this tour with Walks.
