Attraction details
Owner description: It would take you 2 days to visit all the gardens and to discover the mysteries of the extraordinary park from Versailles. Thanks to this circuit, you will be able to visit the main fountains and statues of the park, to go from the hameau de la Reine to the petit Trianon in a few minutes without tiredness, and to see some of the most beautiful "spots" from which the castle can be seen.

“Great time, good guide - loved it”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

A friend had recommended Segway tours to us, and it was just perfect for seeing Versailles. We were able to cover the grounds in 2 hours and learned quite a bit a long the way. My 12 and 14 y.o's said it was one of their favorite parts of our trip to Europe this summer, and I'd agree!

“Highlight of Trip to Paris for 12- and 14-year-olds”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

This was, without question, the highlight of our trip to Paris for our 12- and 14-year-olds. They liked it way better than the night bike tour of Paris. Make sure you book ahead. You meet at a store-front outside, but right next to the gardens. You do not have to go into the palace grounds to get to the office. We called the morning we went and the afternoon tours were booked. We ended up on an 11 am tour with just the four of us. The Versailles Events folks were so friendly, they let my son borrow a coat and gloves because it was so cold when we were there. The weather was overcast and gloomy, but we still had a fabulous time. We had never been on Segways before. One word of caution -- be careful when you ride between closely spaced posts (the kind to keep cars from driving somewhere). I wasn't paying attention and clipped the side of a low post and fell off the Segway. We got to Versailles around 10am and the line wasn't that long to get in (we had Museum Pass, but you still have to wait to go through security.) We raced through the palace to get to the Segway tour on time. Thought we'd hit the palace again afterwards, but the line to get through security at that point was at least 2 hours long! So we just ate in the gardens and called it a day. You do not have to pay or go through security to tour the gardens. You aren't allowed to take the Segway to all parts of the gardens, and the kids didn't really care too much about the history. It was a great place to take a first Segway tour.

“Beautiful Gardens and Palace”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

When you visit these gardens and inside the Palace, you would wish to be a king for at least one week in the 16th,17th centuries ! A magnificient place to be ! But if you want to visit inside the palace, be there as much as earlier in the morning. Actually, there are two places to be early in the mornings: The Louvre Museum and Versailles Palace.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

What a great way to see the whole park - we took the 2-hour trip which was excellent. Segways are remarkably easy to 'drive' and great fun. Excellent guide. Can be difficult to find the start point for the tour (nobody we asked seemed to know) so make sure you phone and confirm this - booking advance via Internet we didn't get this info. Once you know where to go it's easy!
