The presentation was well done!
This tour exemplifies Marie’s scrupulous preparation and research and engaging presentation style. I’d love to visit Versailles with her!
Marie Dessaillen does a wonderful job of unfolding the history of the Gardens of Versailles complemented with photos of the gardens from today. I have been to Versailles but by the time we got out of the palace there was only a couple of hours to try to experience the gardens. Marie helped make up for the lack of time we had that day. Using a combination of historical maps, photos and videos, Marie really brought the experience to life. It was an EXCELLENT virtual tour. I hope to go back one day and especially now with the insight of how they were built, what optical illusions I should look for, and for which of Louie's mistresses the smaller additions were built for.

This was so fun and a great virtual “date” to have with girlfriends. I loved the depthy look at the building of Versailles and the reasons for this and that. Originally I had expected a walking tour but thankfully they knew better than to do that! Instead Marie had small short videos here and there throughout her presentation that came in seamlessly. She did a full Q and A at the end where anyone could ask questions and she answered everything with SO much knowledge and experience.
I will be looking for more with Marie for sure!
