We had an excellent tour of Versailles with Oxana. From start to finish, our tour was well organized, well informed and very accommodating. We found Oxana to be extremely knowledgable, friendly and we most appreciated that she made the tour very interesting for our children who ranged in ages 9-14. Oxana navigated us through the immense crowd quite seamlessly and she was able to distill centuries of historical facts into several key themes that we were all able to learn and remember from this beautiful and historically rich tourist sight.

We had a wonderful time
