Versailles by Bike Day Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Versailles because doing it on foot is unthinkable! We were also lucky to have hit Culture Day many areas were open and free: Trianon feat. an art exhibit, Marie Antoinette's hamlet/farm. The biking is not as strenuous as the Paris night bike tour. The best part is picking out food at the morning market and picnicking along the canal. Wished I'd gotten more grapes at the market! Remember to bring napkins!! Our guide Stu gave a very engaging history of the many Louis to the end of Napoleonic era and a lot was to be learned. It was unfortunate the fountains had turned off by the time I reached it--we also only had 1.5 hours to tour the actual palace and with so many ppl coming during Culture Day, I shuffled quickly through the rooms and missed the famous Napoleon portrait!

Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris

My Review

Was very surprised I was the only person on the tour! Can't believe they'd run a tour with just one....anywhoo, my tour guide Shona (guessing at the spelling) was very personable and showed me many interesting places. And contrary to other reviews I read, ghost stories were discussed and it was indeed creepy, especially because we were two young females walking in dark places. Thanks to the tour I learned a lot of lesser known French history and am interested in researching more about it.

My Review

Very fun start to my Europe trip, except I hadn't ridden a bike for years and ended up with very sore and bruised legs the next day. One good tip is to start off in gear 1 for easy pedaling then gear 2. I think I enjoyed biking itself more than the sights because you really can't risk looking around unless you want to hit an abundance of obstacles such as pedestrians, cars (parked and moving), buses, taxis, stone dividers, fellow bikers. The biking was intense but if I survived, anyone can! The best part was biking through the Louvre like we own the place, interrupting a wedding photo shoot. Stu was, as expected, a great guide, but on many occasions I wondered if we just had to bike onto pedestrian walkways when there were bike lanes available...The boat ride down the Seine definitely make this tour worth the $ but remember to bring a jacket!
