My husband and I booked a private tour with Hidden Gems for a full day at Versailles 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. We loved the hidden rooms in the gardens, and the Queen's Hamlet is something that should not be missed. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel by our driver Sebastian and Anna-Maria, until we were returned later in the day, we were treated like royalty. We had a nice lunch on the grounds down by the gardens which was a good break in the day. I cannot think of a better way to experience all that Versailles had to offer.
