We had the pleasure of taking the Versailles Bike Tour they offer and were really happy with the tour. The weather on the day of the tour started with a huge downpour and nearly resulted in us cancelling the tour all together. We are really glad we stuck with it as was a great way to see Versailles.

Interesting tour on nice bikes with good guide. We were lucky to have a very small group with only three persons plus the guide because it was the end of the season. We learned a lot of new things about a city we had been several times before. This is really the best way to get to know this city!... More

Our family of four - two adults in decent shape in mid-40's, and two 13-yr old teenagers - took and comfortably enjoyed the city and Versailles tour with Bike About Tours. We took the Versailles tour in the pouring rain and our guide Angelica helped turn a miserable weather day into an outstanding, interesting, informative, and friendly adventure. Angelica had...

Beyond the formal gardens and fountains of Louis XIV's palace, there is the powerful enchantment of pristine countryside. Its 20 minutes away from Paris by cab. grandiose and overwhelming, Versailles stands for everything pompous about France The past is the past and the revolution trashed everything that spelt greatness. The formal gardens and vistas of Le Notre are well known... More

We had an excellent day with Bike About Tours. We met in Paris at Notre Dam and all traveled via train to Versailles where we got helmets for the kids and hopped on our bikes. We traveled to a local market to purchase picnic food for our lunch and then leisurely biked to the palace. As an extra bonus that... More

Our family of 5 took a Versailles bike tour with this company in July 2015. It was very professional and totally worth the time! We highly recommend it! We enjoyed stopping at the market and also enjoying lunch at the lake. No other way to tour this beautiful palace, its grounds, and surrounding city!

To think I actually back out of this tour two days before our booked tour due to a rainy forecast. Good thing Bike About Tours gave me the option to “just show up” if the weather improves. And I am so glad we went otherwise I would’ve missed THE best bike tour of Versailles! All the glowing reviews are true... More

Strongly recommended! We are a family of four visiting Paris for just a weekend. We booked a private family tour and It came out the best way to get the real feeling of the city and get to know things that you cannot find our by guides but only from locals. Our guide David was very pleasant, knowledgeable and smart... More

My sister & I visited Paris with my 2 teenage neices during the week of Thxgiving. We booked this tour on a Monday morning. We ran late due to getting a little lost and yet one of the guys waited at the meeting spot for us to arrive. Our tour guide was Amber and she was pretty much the best... More

We did the Versailles tour in mid November and although the weather could have been a little sunnier, it wasn't bad at all. Getting to see the areas that are too far to walk from the main chateau was just great. Our guide was Mark, and he was very knowledgeable about the history, and made it quite entertaining! Would definitely... More
