Each is accompanied by an expert storyteller to uncover the secrets of the place and its history, and a security agent with the keys to open locked doors.

From our Gazette news section:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to join the Versailles tour highlighting the women of Versailles. By being able to have access to rooms not normally open to the public, we were able to have an inside view of everyday, private lives and how this contrasted to the famously public pomp of Versailles. What a treat! In addition, we thoroughly enjoyed the commentary by Alan Riding on the history of Versailles.
