An outstanding tour. All went as described. Our excellent guide Julie explained our day together when we met. The train ride was pleasant, cute sables where our bikes were stored, shopping in an open market for lunch items. The grand pathways were amazing on our bikes. We learned much of the history of grounds and the kings. Marie Antoinette hamlet was cute, Temple Amor wasnnice. the Grand Palace was overwhelming in its grandoiur and number of people there

Biking the gardens is the way to go - saw quite a lot we would have never made it to walking. Fun picnic - consider bringing your lunch with you from Paris - lines can be very long at shops in town. Our guide was great! Palace audio tour is informative but huge crowds make it difficult to enjoy this time of year.

Julie was an incredible guide! Her historical stories were engaging and interesting and brought so much fun to the tour. The bikes were easy to ride. They all had different names such as foods or people which was fun. Buying the picnic lunch in the market was an adventure of itself and eating in the gorgeous gardens of Versailles was incredible. I highly recommend this tour. Beautiful village. Lovely and unique way to see a historical masterpiece.

Highly recommend this method of touring Versailles. We got to see so much more of the grounds and gardens than the average tourist. Even in the rain our guide ASH made our day so fun and filled with good stories and French history. And we appreciated his patience with the stragglers of the group. Everything is provided for you: bike, helmet, rain poncho, chance to shop for picnic lunch and SKIP THE LINE entrance to the main Chateau. This is a great tour!

This trip was incredible. Despite having literally everything go wrong that could including the train track being blocked, a flat tire and a kid falling off a bike this was one of the best tours we’ve taken. Cecilia was amazing- she handled every set back all of which could have been a disaster with skill, humor and grace. She is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and managed to keep our 9 and 11 year old girls interested and engaged for 8 hours. I can’t say enough about how great of an experience we had.
