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.
This was a lovely tour. It was nice to be out and about on the segway in the Versailles Gardens.
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.
Using the segway was a lot of fun, and our tour guide, Julian was fantastic!
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!
great tour. Fun with segways. good guide - with funny questions.
Really good fun and a great way to see a larger area such as the gardens at Versailles.
Really the best way to see the grounds of Versailles and the exterior of all the buildings, as well as learn the history of Versailles. Outstanding, fun tour!
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.
Absolutely fantastic. A small group with a great guide, the only way to see the outer gardens of Versailles. The Segway's are a breeze, a quick learn the ropes and your on your way. Highly recommended, good value for money.
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!
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.
We loved the Segway and had a great time. We were wondering if would be able to ride them and we were extremely surprised to find how easy it is to do. It took us about 3 minutes to learn. Go for it! The visit covers thé grounds your worldwide ont eb able to cover
This was by far my 13 year old's favorite part of our trip to Europe. It was a wonderful way to be outdoors, see the beauty of the gardens and hear the history of the Palace of Versailles. After being on tour buses and walking through Paris this was a wonderful change. Our guide was excellent. He took time to train us to use the Segway and after a few minutes we were quite comfortable. He as very knowledgable and we stopped throughout the tour for photos.
Additional details: To see the ornate gardens, you will need to pay a few Euro and access those area on foot. The Segways aren't allowed in those areas. The location for this tour isn't at the main entrance to the palace. It's about 30 minutes away on foot. If you arrive early there are a few restaurants around the corner.
