Overview

This tour includes round trip tickets to Versailles on the RER. Your guide will meet you at our café in Paris with your tickets (train and castle included!) in hand, so you can leave your worry and stress at the door. You're covered!

Once in Versailles, you'll shop at one of France's best outdoor food markets, cruise along bike paths, royal forest trails, and the Grand Canal, admiring views of the château from different points. You'll also have the chance to see Marie Antoinette's hamlet, which a lot of visitors to Versailles are prone to miss.

Our tour guide, Josh and his shadow, Charlie, were wonderful. They were both from England and were engaging an knowledgeable. They took care to keep us hydrated as it was a record setting day for heat in Paris and the surrounding areas. They shared that, by law, restaurants have to fill your water bottle on request and showed us where the refill stations were throughout our trip. They gave us the scoop on where to buy our picnic supplies. The metro trip over was quick - the information interesting and the scenery lovely. We never felt rushed. Ten out of ten recommend.

Loved that we could see more on a bike. Rachel was great and I loved the people who joined me that day. Didn’t know I had to shop for a snack (wine, cheese, bread and fruit) once we arrived at Versailles via metro, as shopping in an open market not knowing the language was a challenge for me, but it worked out and the picnic on the chateau grounds was a treat!

What a spectacular day. Seeing the grounds by bike was definitely the way to go as they are so big! Our picnic on the canal with local produce was fantastic. We were extra lucky as it was a fountain day. I just loved it.

Mark was so knowledgeable and we breezed through Versailles. Guys honestly DO THE BIKING TOUR! If you see how huge this place is you'll never be able to cover it walking. We were so relieved we picked this option!! The lunch was simply amazing. What an experience!!

Excellent day out and great way to see all the main areas of the palace and gardens. Cycling was enjoyable but to be honest I didn't enjoy the part through Versailles itself but that is partly because I am not used to riding a bike through traffic. Could also be slower paced. Was a bit too rushed for me. I was there to see the sights and enjoy the scenery, not to pretend I am Tour de France material. All in all a lovely day though. Any day at the palace of Versailles would be perfect. Also the little market where you pick up your lunch supplies is so lovely.
