The experience was perfect. Easy access, depth of information, engaging guide…nothing to change.
Everything went very smoothly and with no complications. Thibaut was an awesome guide and his knowledge was extensive, almost encyclopedic. His excitement of Versailles was evident throughout the entire day and we left with a better understanding and appreciation of French history as well as Versailles.
Each member of our family REALLY loved this experience. From the moment he met us in our hotel lobby, Thibaud entertained, informed, and engaged us. He made us feel comfortable and accommodated our every need. His breadth of knowledge about the Versailles Palace and Gardens is nothing short of amazing. My wife commented that she probably would not have even booked or gone into the gardens, had we been on our own. However, after an hour or so in the gardens we had a much deeper understanding of the symbolism of so many of its features. Also, his descriptions of how the designers used perspective fascinated us. Thibaud’s personality really connected with my teenage kids and my wife and I. We loved how he sometimes dipped into the historical “scandalous” side, for some of these stories seem to have truly shaped the palace over time. Thibaud is passionate about the information presented. He went a bit over on time, but we did not mind at all because we were enjoying our time with him so much, and he clearly enjoys sharing the Garden’s and Palace’s history with those who are interested. He kept us on schedule without seeming rushed. Thibaud and this Context experience are a 10/10! Well done! We look forward to many other adventures with Context. So far, the company has consistently delivered in London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Normandy.
