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.

The segway's were so much fun and we had learnt some history along the way too. Had a great tour guide the seqways are great once you get the hang of how to stand in it properly. We were a family of 6 ranging in ages between 19 and 62 and we all thought it was the highlight of our time in France.

We booked the segway tour online for a Monday when the Versailles Palace was closed so that there would be less people on the grounds. When we arrived at Versailles Events, they were not prepared for us and the guide for the day was sick so they substituted a less experienced person. What we were not told was that you could not take the segways into the palace gardens but were restricted to the outer garden areas. We had done segway tours in other major cities and found this one to be poor compared to others. The segways themselves were not in as good condition and lacked bells. The person who took us out admitted that she was not very experienced and also had limited historical knowledge of the grounds. After a very quick tour of the gardens we were offered a tour of the city which we had inquired about as well. Another person took us out for about half an hour and we saw a few places. During the city trip, I did not feel the guide was all that concerned for my safety in traffic. Overall, I felt less than satisfied with the experience.

It is easy to say palace of versaille is something to see when in Paris. It is amazing and breath taking! But if you want to get away form all the tourbus, and the hussle and bussle of hunders of tour groups. Take amoment and head towards the park,church,cafes of Versailles and the people in that community. They are the Real Versailles!

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!

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.
