What You Can Expect

Versailles Gardens and City Segway Tour

Take the scenic route and explore Versailles on two wheels

Choose a departure time and meet your guide at the tour office near the Versailles Palace. Get comfortable with your Segway with an orientation session conducted by your guide. These self-balancing personal transportation devices give you the ability to cover more ground easily and comfortably – and they're fun to ride, too.

Begin your tour with a ride through Versailles Park. Glide along the Grand Canal of this UNESCO-listed site, listening to informative commentary from your guide. See attractions such as the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon – Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette's private retreats, respectively – as well as the Queen's Hamlet and the king's stables. Your guide will point out other notable buildings as you ride along.

Stop for views of the Versailles Palace, where you can take pictures while you listen to your guide talk about Louis XIV's visions of grandeur that compelled him to develop and enhance this extravagant palace.

If you choose the 3-hour tour, your guide will also lead you through the city of Versailles, where you can see the Antiquary neighborhood and the 18th-century St-Louis district. Drift through the lively market square to see how different life in the town is from life at the palace.

After the Segway tour is over, you are welcome to visit the Palace of Versailles on your own (own expense, palace is closed on Mondays).

Great tour of Versailles grounds. Our guide, Cyril, was able to explain so much about the history and background of what we were seeing. The Segways were such fun, a quick lesson from Cyril and we were off! My son thanked me multiple times for setting this up, and I am sure this would be at the top of our list to repeat when we go back. Great family outing, highly recommend!

Such a fun time! Technology and history all wrapped up in one experience. Nothing beats getting to see all these beautiful sites without the strain and tiredness of trekking all those kilometers. It was also fun to watch those on bikes look onto us with envy. LOL. Our tour guide was very informative, funny and entertaining. Highly Recommend it!

We had a good time on the Versailles Tour.

Although we arrived late for our pre-booked appointment, the tour company were proactive in contacting us and rearranged a later time for us. We truly appreciated their flexibility and great customer service.

The location of the tour company is conveniently situated close to one of the palace gates. At the start of the tour, we had good instructions on how to use the segway, and the guide who was very friendly and helpful kept a keen eye on our safety for the duration of the tour. We learnt a great deal about the Palace and its related history. Thank you Mattias! I would certainly recommend company for those who'd like such an experience. It was great fun!

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.

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!

What a great tour. We had never been on a Segway before and being an older couple were a little apprehensive. Our guide put us at ease and off we went. Our guide was excellent. Highly recommend for anyone to try. It was a blast.
