Great guide, Zara was able to answe all our questions and gave very interesting and pertinent information. Although the crows were very large she managed to shepherd all of us and provide lots of info. At the end of the tour she drove us back to our hotel. The palace and the gardens are a must.
Our guide, Kevin, was awesome. Complaints are that the bus transportation stated air conditioned bus. No actual air conditioning, only an open top bus, which was inadequate considering the temperature that day was 95 F and you are stuck in traffic most of the way.
Also, warning that the tour was very short, only 2 hours to see the palace and the grounds. Could have used more time to see all.
Terrible experience. Our tour guide, Natalie, started the tour by going out of her way to pick up another person at the Eiffel Tower that she favored throughout the tour. She rushed us through the Palace then told us we only had 50 minutes to view the gardens. When we returned five minutes late, she scolded us and said she was about to leave. We told her that we didn't get to see the dancing water fountains and she told us we needed to come on a weekend for that. However, the tour specifically said the fountains worked on Tuesday's and Saturdays. We had traveled from Amsterdam that day and gotten up very early so we could see them. She then scolded another family who arrived later then us telling them she was about to leave. She said she was in a hurry because the person she did a special pick up for, had to catch a Seine River cruise. Why we had to rush for her is beyond me! Then when we got to the port to drop off the lady for her cruise, she told us we would have wait 20 minutes while she helped the lady get on her cruise! When she returned, she asked where our hotel was. I gave her a card with our hotel address and she tossed it back saying it was too far and she couldn't go out of her way! She then scolded one of the tour participants because he had gotten out of the van. She said she was tired of waiting for the same person. She was upset and as she was backing up, crashed into a taxi!
