After a short train ride from Paris, your Versailles bike tour starts as you collect the bikes with your guide next to the train station.

Following your guide, ride through the town of Versailles, stopping at the historic food market to buy picnic supplies for lunch (own expense). Then pedal into the royal grounds of the Palace of Versailles, hearing about its history and entertaining anecdotes from your guide. Cruise through the French gardens—some of the most stunning in the world—and make your way to a picnic spot along the Grand Canal, with a view of the palace in the background.

After lunch, visit the rarely seen Queen's hamlet, Marie Antoinette's self-designed village in the forests of Versailles. Your guide then leads you back into town, where you have free time to explore the interior of the palace on your own before returning to Paris on the train.

Highlight of Versailles tour!

The best way to see Versailles

Been to Versailles before and it’s way better to tour on bike. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Loved shopping in the market and the picnic. Was able to see places that you wouldn’t normally see on a walking tour. The only way to go!

Everyone in my group bought wine and hid it at the bottom of our back packs. The security just peeked in our bags, so it was very easy.
