Overview

Here at Bike About, we’re a family. Our tours were one of the first to hit the Paris scene nearly 2 decades ago, and we like to keep that feeling of community on tour. For this reason, and unlike other bike tours of Versailles, we limit our groups. We also warmly welcome you at our very own café, and our guide rides the train to Versailles with you- so you’re taken care of the whole way. Join our family for a day, and experience our version of Versailles!

We’ve planned an unforgettable day trip from Paris, cruising through the town of Versailles for the amazing local market, heading into Versailles’ grounds & gardens, Marie Antoinette’s village, and the Trianons. After the picnic, we make our way to the Chateau. You’ll then explore the palace at your own pace.

Our tour makes history accessible. It’s about getting the juicy important details of Versailles plus the fun stories and quirky anecdotes. It’s simply about an unforgettable day in the countryside, tickets included

Had an excellent day with our guide David. My husband and i were in a group of 10 in total. David set a reasonable pace so everyone could cycle comfortably including the two young kids in the party. Bikes were easy to use. Robust. And saddles were surprisingly comfortable for two ple who haven’t cycled for several years!! Really enjoyed the insights and info imparted. Really enjoyed going to the market to pre purchase our lunches. Perhaps i would have liked better info in advance about the detail of the day - we spent quite a lot of time on train, picking up bikes, walking around markets etc before actually getting to Versailles. Not a big deal, because it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Would definitely recommend this tour and this operator to others. I think I would probably return to Versailles if possible tho - so much to see and not enough time really to explore it all!

The rides through the tree-lined alley roads in the grounds of Versailles estate and the picnic by the Grand Canal with a direct view of the Chateau were the best parts of the tour for me.

It was a fantastic tour by Joshua. It was my second time to Versailles and THIS is the way to do it. He was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. The timing of everything, the sites we saw and the picnic lunch were outstanding. My whole family enjoyed it ages 21, 17 and two parents.

This is a fantastic tour! Well organised and Rachel was a great guide being fun and engaging and the tour moved at a good pace. The picnic lunch was a great add on as well as seeing parts of Versailles that most people don’t get to. Well worth it and got back to Paris with ease.
