What You Can Expect

Versailles Gardens and City Segway Tour

Take the scenic route and explore Versailles on two wheels

Meet at the tour office near the Palace of Versailles at your selected tour time. Your guide will give you an orientation session to get you acquainted with your Segway, a personal, self-balancing transportation device that lets you cruise effortlessly along smooth ground. Because you’ll be on a Segway, you’ll cover more ground than you would by foot, letting you experience Versailles with ease — plus, they’re fun to ride!

Start with a ride through the breathtaking Versailles Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Ride along the edge of the Grand Canal and listen as your guide points out the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon, the Queen's Hamlet, the king’s horse stables and other noteworthy buildings, scattered throughout the park.

Stop periodically to hear about the history of King Louis XIV, whose lavish, over-the-top fantasies led him to commission this grand estate as his palatial retreat in the 17th century. Pause in front of the majestic Palace of Versailles to take photos and admire its grandeur.

On the 3-hour tour, your guide will also take you through the city of Versailles itself, including the 18th-century St-Louis neighborhood and the Antiquary district. You'll also visit the town's main market square and see a different side to Versailles away from the Palace. Of course you can always visit the Palace independently once your tour is over (own expense, closed on Monday), and learn about the fascinating history of this remarkable building.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This was clearly one of the very top experiences we had in our Paris vacation. We had an excellent and friendly guide. There is no better way to see the gardens of Versailles given how large they are, which makes this tour especially good for a warm to hot day. You could see the looks of envy on people's faces as we flew past. Plus, it's just plain fun to ride a Segway.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Very knowledgeable guide. It was wonderful to see the back gardens and begin to understand the way the gardens are laid out and the history of the Versailles. Would recommend everyone do this before or after they tour the main grounds and palace. Well done!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

Amazing tour, what better way to tour around the garden? Our tour guide was amazing and the tour was far more detailed and interesting than the audio guide in the palace! We went during December which was freezing but worth it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Fantastic way to see the Versailles park and some of the town. Segways move you across more ground than anyone could cover on foot or bike. And there is too much ground to cover otherwise.
