Fantastic tour. Highly recommend it. The tour was exactly as advertised. The guide Carl was excellent. But had the guide not been as good, would not give 4 stars, not 5.

Third time for me with different family and friends on this tour. It has been improved since the last time as you no longer take your bike on the RER to Versailles. Carrying your bike on stairs isn't fun and they've improved that by now having a storage space for bikes in Versailles. Great tour!

The bike tour was one of the highlights of our Paris trip. My husband and two teenagers (15 and 18) raved about experience with friends and they would highly recommended it to anyone thinking about doing it. The weather was perfect, our guide (Dan) was knowledgeable, with witty rapport and charm and the food we purchased at the market was delicious. The grounds are amazing and being on the bike was the best way to see it all. The chateau was quite crowded but still beautiful to see.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Versailles! The bikes were comfortable, clean and safe. Obviously, the grounds and buildings of Versailles were the highlight however; our guide Peter was absolutely fantastic! We learned so much about the buildings, grounds and the lifestyle of the kings of that era. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

So wonderful! It was fun to ride a bicycle again and the best part was eating lunch near the Grand Canal. It was such a wonderful experience!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide was Tim from Western Australia, he is a teriffic young bloke and was very informative. The fresh markets were amazing as were the palace grounds and the palace itself. A well organised tour and a very enjoyable day. Would recommend this tour to our friends.

Excellent way to spend the day and see more than the average tourist. The bike riding was very easy (even for kids as young as 6 or 7). Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and all in all we would recommend this tour very highly. Versailles and its surrounds is amazing!

One of the most memorable experiences from my two weeks in France. I will never forget picnicking on the grass at the end of the grand canal of Versailles. We had a terrific tour guide. I had an amazing time. I highly recommend this excursion.

This was our most memorable day in Paris. Our guide, Dan, was fantastic, the weather was gorgeous, and we were able to cover so much more than if we had just done a walking tour.

Great tour! The biking was relaxing and leisurely and the grounds, gardens and palace where amazing!!! The tour guide was great and funny and it was very fun to buy the lunch before hand in the markets. We had the lunch right on the edge of the channel opposite of the palace and it was so peaceful and perfect there I can't imagine a better place to have a picnic. I highly recommend this tour.

This day was the best day of our vacation. Harlin is an amazing guide who made the history of Versailles so very interesting. He even brought a corkscrew and glasses for our wine on the picnic. He hauled our wine on the basket of his bike. We did not have to take bikes on the train as other reviews suggested. We were told that if we arrive early, we would simply get our bikes in Versailles, which we did. Yes this is an expensive excursion but worth every penny. Buy the strawberries in the market, they were the best we ever ate. If you take the metro to get to the tour office, do not stop at a cafe called Metropolitan on the corner of Duplex just down the street as the rudest person ever in the world works there. She treated us like garbage even though we were trying to speak French to her. Not sure how such a young person could be so miserable. However, Harlin more than made up for that setback as he was a lot of fun. The train ride to Versailles allows you to see the suburbs of Paris. Very beautiful! A perfect day!
