This tour was GREAT!!! We would quickly recommend it to everyone. The open air market, where we loaded up on goodies for lunch, was a treat to experience all on its own. Jeff, our tour guide, was fun and full of historical information, as were all the staff very accommodating to everything from issues with bikes to us running late in the morning (after a long night out beforehand). We will never forget this excursion and it was a nice way to finish off a wonderful trip to Paris.
This is a lovely way to visit the Palace of Versailles, particularly in summer with all the thousands of other visitors.It was so lovely sitting beside the canal having our picnic in the shade with provisions purchased at the market place.Jeff was a great tour leader, he has lots of knowledge about French history that makes the visit come alive. The only downside is trying to find the rather out-of-the-way start point of the tour back in Paris.
Loved our day. It was great to visit the market to buy our lunch. We loved cycling around Versailles and having lunch by the canal. A most enjoyable day.
Guide was great! Loved the bike ride along the gardens. Truly enjoyed our picnic. Palace gets crowded especially on Sundays so the fresh air was the best.
Highlight of our trip to Paris! Our guide was so personal and attentive. The palace, itself, was way too crowded, but, walking the beautiful gardens was delightful. We loved the quality of the bikes, the market where we purchased our lunch, and the "tempo" of the tour. Getting to see the part where the farmhands lived was a favorite. Suggest that all guides make sure there is a scheduled bathroom break, mid-tour. We didn't get that advantage until about 5 hours into the tour. Hard on the ladies!
Best tour we did in France! Best way to see Versailles. The bikes are easy to ride and the ride is easy for everyone. Had an amazing picnic on the grounds. Really enjoyed this and highly recommend!!
Everyone in the office was super nice. Our guide Rick was awesome. He knew his history and made it fun...
great way to see the grounds , relax and beat the crowds as well.
In Paris with sweetheart and Granddaughter and girlfriend......we were delighted to have the Versailles trip by bicycle. We loved our docent, Rick from NYC..he had a good handle on the history and the crowd. We loved seeing the grounds and other areas of Versailles that would have been bypassed on a house tour. We loved gathering at the market to make our lunches just right. So far we have voted this tour "our favorite!"
Fantastic!!! highly recommend this tour. The most memorable tour of our 6 week holiday. The tour guide was fantastic and it is by far the best way to see Versaille!
We had an outstanding time on the tour despite the cool and somewhat rainy weather. Loved the experience of shopping at the local market and lunching on the palace grounds. Our tour guide Rick was fabulous and made the ride so much more enjoyable by entertaining us with fun facts and humor!
Our guide was knowledgeable and we enjoyed riding bicycles and the picnic lunch! I had really wanted to see Marie Antoinette's hamlet and that was the reason for doing this particular tour.
Great tour; great guide. We had a bit of rain day we did bike tour with our 12 year old granddaughter but loads of fun nonetheless.
Great day with our picnic in the gardens of Verseilles providing a welcome contrast to the crush of people inside the palace. Our tour leader, Darcee, was fantastic fun and very knowledgeable about the history of the French Revolution and the four Louis'. Definitely try to get onto one of her tours. Watch out at the markets as one of our friends got ripped off. We thought this tour was a highlight of our trip to Paris.
