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 by the Grand Canal of Versailles within the Domain Versailles. 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).

This is the best way to get around Versailles Gardens. It was easy to learn and so much fun! Our guides were also amazing and made it so interesting. Highly recommend this!!

This was a nice break from museums where you jockey for view of masterpieces. Whizzing about with the wind through your hair allows you to cover a great distance of the Versailles gardens. Our guide was great- engaging and knowledgeable. One piece of advice is to get to the grounds an hour before the tour is supposed to start-- getting to the Segway start point takes quite a while, especially if it is a first visit to Versailles.

With a garden of this size, this is one of the few ways to see as much as possible in 2 hours. To effortlessly glide along the long Boulevards was a true delight.

Our guide was extremely nice and fun to have the tour with in all aspects. He was informative, helpful, friendly and made the segway tour so worth it. This tour is a must.

A fantastic addition to our day at Versailles. A perfect way to encourage a 12 year old around the park though I have to say the adults loved it too. A lovely guide who added some colour to our tour. You see the Trianons and farm from the outside but can go in after the Segway tour if you want. A real highlight and the fun balanced out a wonderful but solidly cultural experience in the palace in the morning.

Excellent tour. Our guide was fantastic. Very informative and friendly. Patient with my children who were on a Segway for the first time. We learned so much about the palace and gardens. Don't miss Marie Antoinette's Hamlet! A must see. The whole family agreed that this was the highlight of our trip to Paris.

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!
