Visiting the palace was nice, but going to the market in town to buy our picnic supplies and exploring the grounds of Versailles by bike was even better. Our tour guide Luke added tot he fun.

Really enjoyed this tour. Nick was very informative and entertaining. Our group were all very friendly. The picnic lunch in the gardens was a welcome break as it was a very hot day.
Had a wonderful time - definitely one of the highlights of our trip to France.
This is a fantastic way to tour Versailles. The tour was very relaxing and we got to see the backyard of Versailles. My two kids said it was the best tour in our trip to France!
Great tour. This is the best way to see ALL of Versailles. Walking the gardens would be almost impossible. At the end of our bike tour, the guide drops us off in front of the main building and we entered with tickets included in the tour.
This is a great way to see Versailles- especially the grounds. This was especially a great tour with teenage kids- a good way to get them interested in history and seeing the sights. Our guide was Fraser, he was awesome!
Valentin (our very knowledgeable Russian-Australian guide) shared his extensive knowledge of Versailles and French history with our group. Given the warm day, it may have been better (for some in the group) if the history lessons were imparted in the shade. A terrific trip, highly recommend.
The bike trip to the Versailles Palace an absolute standout and the host Nate was terrific in his hospitality and his knowledge of the French history.
This trip combined seeing the Palace with skip the queue but even better covered the extensive gardens which most people don and #39;t see. A standout trip.
Great time, our tour guide Johnny provided us with informal and entertaining guide throughout the tour
Our guide, I forget her name now-she was Canadian was super enthusiastic, entertaining and awesome. It was a truly special experience to experience so much of the grounds.
Unfortunately we had a very rainy and cold day for our bike trip. However, our tour guide more than made up for the bad weather. He was extremely knowledgeable about Versailles and the French history. I would highly recommend this tour for a trip to Versailles.
This is a great tour. Very well done with a nice range of activities. My wife and I did this tour back in 2013, and came back again this year with her parents - thats how much we enjoyed it! There are so many highlights from the day, but we really enjoyed the market and lunch on the lawns of Versailles.
Excellent tour from start to finish. The kids 6,8,9 really enjoyed it as well especially the cycling part. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a day trip to Versailles.
An excellent days activity. Well organised even with ren track closed. Nat was a great leader, knowledgable and informative. Leaving visit to the Chateau until the end was great, an easy petal and sourcing our own lunch was great fun. Recommend this tour option.
My teenage daughter and I very much enjoyed the Versailles bike tour. It was the highlight of our 5 day visit in Paris. Daniel's information and hosting were informative and hilarious. The biking was easy and enjoyable. I would have wished for less time in the market and more time biking, perhaps around the back of the Grand Trianon.
THIS WAS FANTASTIC!
I loved every second of this tour. We were lucky to be staying close to the meeting point so it was just a quick stroll from the Eiffel Tower Pullmans to the meet point.
Our guide was Drew he went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with loads of knowledge of the area and was quick to help with a noisey bike. The bikes were comfortable and felt safe the whole time. Our beautiful picnic lunch was outstanding and i loved that we were let loose in the town to choose our own food. Had a FAT time, thanks guys!
This is a must do tour that everyone should do. Our tour guide, Nick, was very knowledgeable about French history and shared many colorful facts. The visit to the market and the picnic that followed was the best. I highly recommend this as the best way to see the extent of the grounds of Versailles.
What a great way to see Versailles. Luka, our guide, was a wealth of knowledge and very patient. Really enjoyed the whole experience.
This was the highlight of our trip! Our guide was very knowledgable and very nice! I highly recommend this tour. You haven't seen Versailles unless by a bike!
This tour was truly incredible. Cian was our guide and he was so knowledgeable and personable. We rode the train from the bike shop which was very easy to find to a village outside Versailles, picked up our bikes and our first stop was at a little farmer's market. Here, we picked up the odds and ends for our picnic and Cian was very helpful in where to pick up bread, cheeses, meats and wine. We then had our tour around the Versailles property with tops in between where Cian would tell a very interesting story about its history. It was such a memorable experience and if you take the tour-try to get Cian! He is great!!! Also-my friend and I are not extremely fit and certainly not with bikes and this tour was very manageable.
Tour was excellent, guide was good, we spent time at the market compared to biking....palace was amazing but on the weekend too crowded but only inside the palace apartments
We had a great time and our guide was knowledgeable. Our two children age 11 and age 6 loved the bike tour too. It met our goal of having and active day while taking in culture. I would definitely recommend this excursion.
Absolutely amazing! 100 recommend this to anyone of any age. Our tour guide was phenomenal a young Irish man who I have forgotten the name of, he was so enthusiastic, entertaining and factual. The entire experience from start to finish was one I will never forget. The bike ride is extremely tame so anyone can manage it. This tour was the highlight of my Paris trip. Thank you to our wonderful tour guide and my apologies for my bad memory with names!
