Francesca was amazing! She clearly has a passion about historical Paris and shares it in such an engaging way! She got in contact with us the day before the tour, In case we had any questions or concerns. She taught us little known facts, played around with the kids, kept them entertained. I would definitely recommend her for your tour about Versaille. Such a fun and informative tour!

Visita imprescindible para entender Versalles y todo lo que se escondía tras esos jardines y esas paredes. La visita fue súper divertida, amena, ilustrativa. Yo casi me imaginé en una de las fiestas de Luis XIV! Luzía es maravillosa, amable, sabe muchísimo de historia y lo mejor es cuando te cuenta los chascarrillos de la época... Realmente te traslada a esos momentos. Aprendimos mucho y lo pasamos genial. No dejéis de hacerla. Mucho exito Luzía! Aritz y Maite
