This tour was awesome! Our guide was fun and knowledgeable, we got to see so much more of Versailles than we would have done walking, and the picnic lunch was hands down the best meal I had all week in Paris!!
The trip was fantastic. Our guide, Andrew, was the best. The day was a bit cold but he made everything so interesting and fun we hardly noticed. We got great exercise, learned so much about the history of France, the beautiful gardens, Marie Antoinette and all the kings of that era that the palace was just the frosting on the cake. Have already recommended to many friends.
We are a family of 4 and we loved it. Our guide Bill was the best...did not have to grapple with bikes on train which was fantastic with two children. Nice leisurely pace, we had some older people in our group, but they managed it.
After 10 miles, (16 Kms) the kids were wrecked. We all slept well that night. Would recommend this trip to anyone. Markets fantastic, bikes comfortable, food yummy.
Nick was a great tour guide knowledgeable but not stuffy. The biking the grounds, shopping the farmers market and the picnic lunch were all so fun that the Palace was somewhat disappointing
A wonderful day in Versailles! What a great way to see the palace. Very knowledgeable tour guide gave us historical perspective rarely found in audio guided tours. We will do this same trip again the next time we are in Paris. The beginning of the bike trip started at a fabulous market that is a wonderful experience in and of itself. We do not ride bikes but found this trip very easy to do.
Aussie Steve was a fantastic tour guide! He was very informative and helpful and as fantastic entertainment for the adults and children on the tour. The tour has you see all of the gardens on an easy bike ride which gets away from the crowds. Picnic by the lake was so relaxing. The bike riding around the gardens and visiting the market to grab some delicious food was the highlight, then it was on to tackling the crowds in the palace. Highly recommend, well worth the money. Great for solo travelers!
An extraordinary experience...perfection! Our favorite day in France. Our guide Rick was fantastic.
This was the best thing we did in Paris! Great for all ages. We loved shopping for lunch and the picnic. You get to see it all on this tour.
Had a blast! Great super friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. So worth it!
Johnny was AWESOME AWSOME AWSOME. Give him a raise! He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The weather made it rather unpleasant and he helped us work around that!
This tour was recommended by friends and was amazing. Phil our tour guide was very knowledgeable and his passion of the area really showed through. Cycling through the grounds was perfect to gain an understanding of the size of the area and its history. We had enough time to see the Palace and return back to Paris by early evening. It was a drizzly day but Phil ensured we all had a great time! Highly recommended.
By far this was our favorite tour while we were in Paris. Bill was a wonderful guide and our entire family enjoyed the pace of the ride. We never made into the chateau as the lines were very long but we didn't feel like we missed a thing!
My sister and I had a great adventure on the Versailles By Bike Tour. We were a friendly group of 18 and Eva from Oxford did a great job guiding us and recounting tales of the four Louis who ruled Versailles. Unfortunately one of our tour mates had a tumble and Eva handled the emergency and all of us with great sensitivity and professionalism. A great way to experience Versailles in all its splendor!
I've done the Versailles by Bike Day Tour before and wanted my daughter and granddaughter to experience it on their first trip to Paris. They both agreed it was the highlight of our trip to Paris. Justin, our guide was funny friendly and knowledgeable. He even took the extra time to help my granddaughter find some vegan choices when we arrived in Versailles and were shopping for our picnic lunch.This is the ONLY way to see Versailles. To bike on the same grounds that the Royals walked through and to picnic where they may have done so too, is such a great experience! I highly recommend this tour and Fat Tire to everyone.
This company were great to deal with. My wife fell and broke her arm just before we were due to take this tour. The company with no fuss changed us to the walking tour and moved it to a few days later so that she had time to be well enough to go. This was outstanding service and the walking tour with lunch was great. We lost no money and did not miss out on seeing Versailles. Thanks so much.
