We went on the Versailles bike tour, which included a guided tour inside the palace, shopping the local food markets for picnic food, a picnic in the palace gardens and a tour of the palace grounds. Our guide, Claudio, was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The Company is very professional, and ensured every detail was taken care of. I chose this Company because we got to skip the line to the palace and felt bikes would be the most efficient (and fun) way to see the palace grounds. I liked that the tour guide stays with you inside the palace which the other company I considered did not do. I highly recommend doing this tour!

Outstanding experience with Boutique bikes and Fiona. Boutique has a smaller group (8-9) people with the addition of biking to the Versailles market and cheese tasting. ( not just solely staying on the estate of verseilles). Fiona was one of the best tour guides we have had in decades of traveling! Perfect English, enthusiastic, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about history and Versailles. Would highly recommend and Try to get in Fiona’s group 😉

We had a fabulous all-day private bike tour around Paris. Three couples and Dina our incredible guide - enthusiastic and knowledgeable (degree in French history). Bikes and helmets were in great condition and the tour was tailored to our interests. Total time was 6-1/2 hours including stops for lunch and coffee. I would highly recommend Dina and Boutique Bike Tours.

Nikki & Stu provided us with the perfect afternoon experience in Paris. Well balanced between historical facts and current Paris wiki’s. Perfect balance between biking & boat trip too.
Highly recommended!

I signed up for this trip after reading through similar ones. The reason I selected this tour was the organization of the tour. The tour started early with the back entrance to Versailles We avoided the crowds and left enough time to see the rest of the palace with a lunch trip to the local market to shop for our own food before settling at a picturesque spot just like to the picture for the tour. There is no question that a bike is needed to get a proper perspective of Versailles. All the highlighted spots were included on the tour. An added benefit was a slight workout for me. Unfortunately, one lady had to drop out of the tour because she hasn't been on a bike for years and was not comfortable in riding one even though the physical demand was very modest at best.

At the end of the day, I gained an appreciation of the magnitude of this historical site and a better understanding of French history. The tour guide, Nicholas, was very patient in answering all the questions and describing significant items of interest. Overall, this was one of the highlights of my Paris trip.

Be sure to include this trip in your Paris itinerary! Stu and Niki and team are engaged and interested in you. They are energetic and excited about what they do. Their passion for their work comes through and every facet of your experience. We went with another tour company with “large wheels” to gain easier access to the Eiffel Tower and the company and guide seemed tired and disinterested, as if we were just “tourists.” This is why Niki and Stu’s company is different.

You will leisurely bicycle around the main part of Paris, including a lovely ride along the Seine river. There is time to stop for ice cream and treats along the way. Our guide, Melly, had our stops for sunset timed perfectly, so that we stopped in several places along the Seine as well as at the Louvre for great photo opportunities.

The hour-long boat ride on the Seine was wonderful as well with many more photo opportunities, especially as the boat passed by the Eiffel tower. The evening finished with a stop next to the Eiffel tower so that we could see it sparkle for five minutes at midnight.

This is a trip we could not have put together on our own. We highly recommend doing this trip your first day or two in Paris to get a sense of the immensity and beauty of the city.

I could go on and on--I already have! But suffice it to say that you owe it to yourself to go on this trip. It is money well invested.

One final thing: what Stu and Niki and team do is very important. It cultivates joie de vivre, the joy of life, appreciation of other cultures, and new friendships among unlikely people. It gives you the opportunity to experience things you never would on your own. These kinds of trips are life-giving. My wife and I will not forget this trip anytime soon. Thank you Stu, Niki, and Melly!

My granddaughter and I enjoyed this tour greatly. Niki is an "epic" (she likes to use this adjective) guide, the bikes are in ship shape and all is very well organized. Niki and Stu absolutely know what they are doing. Loved it.

We had the most amazing day with Stu and Niki. They were full of personality and provided amazing insight into the whole town of Versailles. Their personal and historical knowledge of the town and Palace were incomparable to any other guided tour. If you’re going to Versailles this is the way to do it! Great for couple, singles or families with teenage kiddos.

It was absolutely amazing. So much fun! We were expecting a large group and not being able to hear much and we got the exact opposite. Turned into a private tour for just us. Lola was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the history of the city. Very nice and answered all of our questions. It wasn't very crowded.

We had an absolutely incredible day in Versailles with Niki and Stu! They are Versailles and guide experts, making this the best tour we have ever experienced. On top of being in the beautiful setting of Versailles, they were friendly, fun, and created a seamless and unforgettable day for us. We loved it all: cycling, market, picnic lunch, and learning about Versailles.
We cannot recommend this tour enough!!
