Great way to get around and see more of Versailles than most people. Our picnic lunch was exceptional as the market is a food lovers paradise with even a half bottle of wine available . The palace part had head sets provided for a self guided tour which was great as at the end of the day we are all happy to separate and do our own thing. Our group had many different ages cycling and all looked pretty happy .
Wow! What a way to spend the day! The trip to the outdoor market to buy picnic supplies, the bike tour and our guide were all just lovely! Our guide was Australian and I don't remember her name - sorry! She was wonderful! We met at the bike shop where our guide gave us the details of the day. We had to traverse Paris streets and trains to get to Versailles and she was so attentive to the pace of the group and our safety. When we got to the market she gave us some great insider info and plenty of time to pick up our picnic supplies. While touring Versailles grounds she gave us great history lessons and gave the group options for flow of the day. Once the bike tour was completed we were given our tickets to the palace and our ticket for the train ride home so we could enjoy the palace at our own pace. The guide will escort you through the group entrance so you don't have to wait in the longer lines. She gave us detailed instructions on how to get back and was also gave us the option to ride back with her later in the day, if we wanted to. I would tell anyone that they are not seeing Versailles until they do this tour!
Tour was great. It was as described and our tour guide Peter expressed his passion for the history of the palace and the people. The local market was great and ride itself was very easy. This tour is a great way to appreciate more than just the palace but the gardens, pheasants village and the history. We highly recommend this tour.
This tour was one of the highlights of our week in Paris. Rick was a great guide, and it was amazing to see so much of the grounds that many people miss. Getting picnic snacks at the market and eating at the royal picnic grounds next to canal was amazing.
What a great way to see this wonderful place. Anya, our guide was exceptional and taught us how to dominate while riding our bikes to the town markets and back. She also told us about the history of Versailles, the palace and the royals who resided there. Picnicking by the lake was very relaxing. If you can ride a bicycle then I would recommend seeing the palace this way as its a lot of fun and very relaxing.
This tour was amazing. The perfect guide, Claudia, with all her knowledge and wit. Great small group to ride with.
Loved going to the market , riding the trails of Versaille, exploring Marie Antoinette's Hamlet and settling next to the lake for our lunch. And topped it all off with the Chateau.
This tour was truly amazing! My husband, two sons (11 and 13) and I found it yo be the highlight of our entire vacation! Taking a train from Paris to Versailles, riding bikes to a French countryside market to but hot baguettes, pate, cheese, and wine followed by beautiful bike ride!
The tour operators cannot control the weather, but the weather gods held us in highest esteem for our day tour! Our guide, Dan, was a delightful, knowledgeable and witty host! We loved our first and most important stop of the day-the Versailles market where whatever you wanted to eat or drink at lunch break along the Grand Canal could be found; and Dan had plenty fabulous recommendations! 8 miles of biking didn't feel like 8 miles most likely because every turn gave jaw dropping views. The tour of the palace at the end of the day was almost anticlimactic as we'd taken in so much beauty, history lessons and new found friends.
This was the highlight of our time in Paris. Our tour guide Bill could not have been better! I highly recommend this tour.
Absolutely one of the the highlights of the trip. Our guide Claudia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and very personable. The garden tour; the visit to the hamlet; the picnic on the Grand Canal; and the tour of the palace - all outstanding. Highly recommended. The one concern we had was getting directions to the bike location, but after getting there, it was well worth our initial anxiety about finding the meeting place.
This was a very enjoyable and leisurely ride. Drew, our guide, did a very nice job of giving us the proper historical perspective without droning on. The trip to the market and the subsequent picnic were highlights. Our group did a pretty good job of jelling together...who knows...perhaps it was the wine. After the ride, we were on our own to tour the palace. Impressive, but doing the crowd shuffle got old.
Absolutely brilliant! The ONLY way to see Versailles. Just do it, OK? Book now. You certainly won't regret it. Our English guide (I wish I could remember his name, but he is the tall curly haired guy who kept comparing his long locks the Louis XV) was witty, fun and very knowledgeable. A great host.
