Our guide Daniele provided the perfect mix of commentary and companionship on this Tour. The bike tour company runs a really great system here where you meet at the Bike Shop then get onto the Metro to get into it. No wasting time here, as Daniele gave us plenty of forward notice of where to be and what to do in the event anyone was separated. We were able to experience the Shopping in the markets to buy our produce for Lunch. All levels of fitness are catered for with the bikes as well ! We felt like we were from Versailles as rode throughout the Area adjacent to Marie Antoinette's village creation, then took our time for lunch adjacent to the boats on the canal and finally into the Palace and the Gardens. Thoroughly recommended to get a real local flavour of the day. If you can do it, Do it !
One of the best ways to see the grounds of Versailles before going to see the palace. I enjoyed biking around the Grand Canal and having a picnic with all the goodies purchased at the market. Daniele was a great guide giving us history but making it interesting at the same time and his recommendations of where to buy food at the market was spot on. I would have liked to go into the Petit Trianon and other buildings but time didn't permit this so another reason to come back one day. Thanks, local Bike tours for another great bike tour!
We had an amazing day and Josephine was great fun, very professional and very knowledgeable. Altogether great tour.
What an amazing day!!! The weather was absolutely perfect! It was sunny with a cool breeze blowing. We met up at the Bike Shop and they navigated us to the bike pick-up area. We then rode to the farmer's market and chose delicious pastries, wine, cheese, and fruit for our picnic later in the day. Touring the grounds on bikes was amazing and something you would never have time to do on foot. Versailles itself is unbelievable...so ornate and gorgeous! We ended the day lying in the grass watching the fountains. Thank you, Viator and the Bike company, for an amazing Parisian experience. I would highly recommend!
Our Versailles Bike Tour was fabulous! Our guide, Danielle I think, was so informative. I now want to study more about Versailles and Marie Antoinette and the Kings. The way our guide told the story was so wonderful. We all agreed that this was one of the best international tours we have taken.
Seeing the country side, and the shops, and the great food was everything we expected. The rain didn't dampen our day, either.
We are thrilled to have had such an amazing adventure.
This is definitely the way to tour Versailles. Our guide had a solid understanding of the history of how Versailles was built and contributed to the 1789 Revolution. Biking the grounds was an excellent way to see all of the major parts. The best part was our picnic lunch with wine, cheese and charcuterie on the grounds looking up the grand canal at the Grand Palace. Then, to see the inside of the palace really brought home the reason why the people of France revolted.
We loved this tour. The bike ride was so much fun. Buying our food at the market and picnicking next to lake was the best! Tour guide Daniel was fantastic. The palace was sensational
Excellent way to see Versailles!
Drew was a great tour guide...very informative.
This was our favorite tour/activity! And it was a rainy day so our 13 year old started out fussy. By the end of the biking part of the tour she was all smiles. Not so much after the slow, crowded crawl through the palace. Our tour guide Daniel was fun, playful and informative. Kudos to Daniel!
Cycling was a fabulous way to experience the grounds of Versailles. The tour was definitely enhanced by our great guide who provided comprehensive and witty commentary throughout the day. Highly recommended.
This was my first time to Versailles. The tour was set up in a way that made everything remarkably convenient. Everyone showed up in the morning at the designated meeting place in Paris and then as a group we were led by our tour guide, Mark, to the train station where we traveled as a group to Versailles. It was an excellent way to experience Versailles! We stopped off at the local market where we stocked up on food for our afternoon picnic on the grounds of Versailles. We were given a very thorough tour by Mark and his explanation of landmarks and historic information were incredibly informative and entertaining. We were given free time to roam about the Versailles chateau and the gardens which I would highly recommend to anyone. Would definitely suggest this tour to anyone visiting Paris for more than a couple days!
This was an absolutely fantastic way to see Versailles. Our guide, Dan, was fabulous. His commentary was detailed and very informative. This was one of the best days we had during our visit and we got to see parts of Versailles that others would miss. Highly recommend! Sue and John, Australia.
This was a really fun trip. Our guide Nathan was excellent in terms of keeping us organized and providing historical information. Getting to ride through the city and then the palace property was great.
One of the best ways to experience the grandeur of the entire estate. Our guide and carer was just fantastic. Great with the knowledge presentation, but also witty and entertaining. Also aware of everyone's health and safety. Only of couple of sections required some effort, but if you are not fit you are not rushed as our guide was accommodating enough to work around the requirement.
Dan was a excellent tour leader it was the best day of our Paris holiday
I would highly recommend the tour to anybody of all ages
We had an amazing time and our tour guide was such a great person! I highly recommend this trip. Although the weather wasn't perfect it was a little rainy, the scenery was still so romantic, and the place so beautiful! I would do this trip again!
This tour was amazing. One of our highlights! Our guide Emer was amazing and described so much history as we biked the grounds. Very light ride and great way to see so much of the gardens and grounds that you would absolutely not see walking on foot. We also biked to a market before reaching the palace and got items for a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds. Amazing must do!
What a great day. Our guide was wonderful, funny and informative. Riding through Versailles, the town, was much easier than I thought, I don't like riding on roads but being part of a group made it fun and very safe. Riding around the grounds of the Palace was an experience not to be missed. This tour was recommended to us and I would highly recommend it to others.
This was one of our absolute highlights! We had the BEST time! It is a definite must when going to Paris. It was beautiful and you get to explore the acres around the palace - not the gardens itself. You are exposed to much more history and beauty. Perfect day in every way.
This bike ride, tour and linch on the beautiful Palace grounds was a high point of our trip.. Great group of bikers, and the staff @ the bike shop and guide thought the day was a pleasure to be repeated for future trips.
Great tour! The guides for the bike tours in Paris are the best
