Choose a departure time and meet your guide by the Grand Canal of Versailles within the Domain Versailles. Get comfortable with your Segway with an orientation session conducted by your guide. These self-balancing personal transportation devices give you the ability to cover more ground easily and comfortably – and they're fun to ride, too.
Begin your tour with a ride through Versailles Park. Glide along the Grand Canal of this UNESCO-listed site, listening to informative commentary from your guide. See attractions such as the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon – Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette's private retreats, respectively – as well as the Queen's Hamlet and the king's stables. Your guide will point out other notable buildings as you ride along.
Stop for views of the Versailles Palace, where you can take pictures while you listen to your guide talk about Louis XIV's visions of grandeur that compelled him to develop and enhance this extravagant palace.
After the Segway tour is over, you are welcome to visit the Palace of Versailles on your own (own expense, palace is closed on Mondays).
