We really enjoyed this tour. I know it's pricey but honestly it's worth it! Our 14yo was very interested and learned a lot (so did my husband and I). "Our guide was amazing and so helpful. He made the tour interesting and interactive for our 7 year old daughter. The length of the tour was just enough. Highly recommend! "The guide was nice and helpful. Our grandson (10) enjoyed A LOT being told he was going to be Louis XIV for the visit! The guide was clever giving interesting information but not too many dates and historical details.
