Reviews Versailles

Overall rating 10
Overall Guide : wWonderful experience and the people are very polite and helpful. Its a lifetime experience. The history behind the city makes it even more exciting to be here but more need to be done in educating kids about the importance of... more such a city. The hall of Versailles is also an attraction.
