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 Gardens, 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 gardens.

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), and learn about the fascinating history of this remarkable building.

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.
