We did a Paris trip with these guys 2 years ago and were so impressed, that we chose to use them for a trip to Versailles (even though I'd been there before and actually wanted to go to Monet's garden). We were not disappointed: the group was small, the guide informative, good tempered and patient, and the itinerary worked really... More

Do this bike tour on your first day in Paris- it will help you get your bearings, show you some areas of the city to re-visit later in the week, and best of all, help with the jet lag if you've just arrived from North America. Our family of 3 (one 11 year old) did this tour on our first... More

My wife and I were debating whether we wanted to include Versailles for our boys first trip to Paris on family vacation. Both of us had been before when younger and it was not a priority as our young ones are not much into architecture and art :). We had planned to exclude it until we came across Bike About... More

We were in Paris for the end if the 2014 Tour De France and decided to spend the preceding day doing a spot of sightseeing. Versaille was our chosen destination and we wanted to explore it on two wheels with 'Bike About Tours' - an excellent decision as it turned out! We were lucky enough to be assigned Mark as... More

I really enjoyed the full day tour of Versailles. Mark was an excellent tour guide who shared a lot of great information with our group. He even shared an extra jacket with me when it started to rain. Shopping at the market was a lot of fun and the picnic lunch along the waterside was perfect. There were people of... More

This tour was a highlight for me! I have been to Paris many times and always with somebody new to Paris - so was seeing the same things every time. So this visit I thought it was time for something different. I had my two daughters with me (20 and 21) so thought the bike tour of Versailles would be... More

Spent the day with our guide, Mark on the Versailles Bike About Tour. It was the best way to see the palace and grounds. After getting so much historical information (with a contemporary twist), we have a new found interest in learning even more about the King Louis'. The stop for picnic supplies was such fun. The day couldn't have... More

Whilst in Paris this year I decided to take the BikeAboutTours Versailles tour. Several years ago I took the Bikeabout Paris tour and really enjoyed it. So thought I should try their Versailles tour. I was not disappointed it was a great day and our guide Amber was first class. She has a great sense of the history of Versailles... More

Took the afternoon Paris tour with my 17 year old daughter. Great small group, excellent guide - thank you, Ed for your humor and interesting facts about Paris. Would have loved a longer ride, the afternoon went so fast! We had a great time!
