Our tour guide -- Lina -- was fantastic -- very knowledgable and friendly. Riding a bike around Versailles was an fun way to see the grounds -- we covered a lot of the area, which was huge. One of my favorite stops on the tour was the market before we got started on the bikes. It was large with many local products to peruse and purchase. I would definitely do this tour again -- very highly recommend it!

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this trip with Robin as our tour guide. She was very friendly and informative. Riding the bike around the grounds of Versailles was lovely. I almost wished we could have just kept riding around and enjoying the scenery. I highly recommend this tour. The only issue we had was that we used our Paris Pass to get in the palace and it did not include access to the gardens for some reason. I am still confused about that.

In spite of a very rainy day our guide Robin was an amazing trooper and led us through this fabulous tour rain ponchos included! For the first time in my life I think I understand the French monarchy and all the players in the game. The town of Versailles is very charming. A fantastic trip and highly recommended!

Guillaume was our tour guide and he made the whole day so fun! It's a long day but our favorite during the trip. It's definitely not strenuous biking but we saw so much more of the grounds than we would have otherwise. It was great to get away from the crowds and explore the hidden gems of Versailles. Guillaume was friendly and knew so much of the history of the place. The transportation to and from Paris was very easy to manage. This does not include a tour of the palace itself though the tickets are included and they walk you right in. To be honest, by the end of the day we didn't want to battle the crowds of the place though we did a quick walk through. It's definitely a long and tiring day but absolutely worth it!

This was my brother and I's first bike tour ever! It was so delightful all thanks to our amazing tour guide, Robin. She made the experience very enjoyable and she explained the history of Versailles in a very entertaining way. We highly recommend this bike tour for someone who's looking to get amazing sights of Versailles in and get some exercise as a bonus!
