Aside from Versailles itself as a spectacle, our tour guide Jude was appealing. He was laid back but informative and showed excellent knowledge about the place, the historic time and the important characters. He ran a good tour.

Biking thru Versailles
Ric, Sept 2023
Monan made the day so easy and fun. We could rent a bike anywhere and see the sights, but Monan's passion made us feel the sights. Everything was so organized, from the train ride to wondering thru Versailles. It was simply a great day. And except for one issue with the bike handle bars, they collapsed and i scraped my arm a little and tore my shoes 🙁 , but I did not go down. 👍 We tightened the bars and we were back on schedule.
Great way to see Versailles’ large grounds
Thomas_F, Sept 2023
Versailles is a huge Chateau enabling biking a great way to see the surrounding grounds. We were also provided a ticket to tour the inside. The guide was very knowledgeable.
An enjoyable big day out covering a lot of stunning ground
Bronwyn_H, Sept 2023
Really enjoyed this big day out! Lovely welcome at the cafe followed by a well timed sequence of visits and stops to fill the day. I would say there is more walking than biking however we still covered a lot of ground! Informative and friendly guide with good awareness for the needs and preferences of the group - many thanks
Too many people, too slow.
Maria_W, Sept 2023
Lovely tour and great day. However, there were too many people in the “small group”. The organizer said they had to move people to our day because Versailles was going to be closed. That’s fine but if the business is going to do that then they need more guides. With 15 people the tour was too slow. We did not see much of the gardens which is actually the highlight of a trip to Versailles. Many of the other tours had under 10 people and they were operating with the same closure issues.
Excellent and unique experience!
Kelly_B, Sept 2023
We loved this tour. Rachel is an excellent guide and she has a very unique way of explaining the history of the palace so that her customers are able to understand. We left the palace feeling like history experts after our tour. The visit to the local food market and the picnic on the palace grounds is a treat. The bikes are in good condition and Rachel hosts an informative, safe and fun ride around the French countryside.

Paris in the Rain
Geoff_G, Sept 2023
David made what COULD have been a lack-lustre experience (due to pouring rain for the majority of our day) a TRULY FUN time! He was completely knowledgeable, made our group laugh & have fun together, made sure everyone felt comfortable & included- couldn’t ask for a better tour of Paris in the Rain! Lois & Geoff
Seamless & Sensational experience from beginning to end
stewowen, Sept 2023
Rated as one of the best experiences we enjoyed during our 5 day stay in Paris - most relaxing way to see the city lit up at night whilst enjoying a delicious meal Olin delightful surrounds - beyond our expectations
Book this bike tour!
Barbara_E, Sept 2023
Book this tour now! Monan was so kind and very informative. We started with a visit to the market to purchase lunch for a picnic later along the canal. I would recommend bringing a recycled grocery bag and a small travel blanket if you have one available:). Our guide was well prepared with a wine opener and cheese knife. Next we biked to the side of the estate where we entered the gardens. In my opinion…the gardens and grounds of Versailles are by far the most impressive part. After a short visit to Marie Antoinette’s villa and the queens Hamlet we enjoyed a lovely lunch next to the canal. Finally, our guide led us to the entrance of the palace to explore on our own. You don’t need too much time. The Hall of Mirrors is impressive. Our guide gave us the history about its significance which we appreciated very much!
This tour is the only way...
Noele_L, Sept 2023
This tour is the only way to see Versailles, we enjoyed our day. Our guide was full of knowledge and made the whole experience fun.
Versailles bike tour
Kathleen_M, Sept 2023
We had the best tour with Marley! She shared just the right amount of history & brought it to life with great stories. She was very engaging and completely enjoyable. I’d highly recommend this tour and especially Marley!!
Must do!
Rebecca_M, Sept 2023
Marley, our tour guide was amazing! Had the whole family captivated (including the 10 & 12 year olds)! Seeing Versailles on bikes was an amazing way to cover a lot of ground. Going to the market and having a picnic in the grounds was super special. A day will will not forget in a very long time! Merci ❤️
I love food and cool historical places
Karen_L, Sept 2023
Picking out food for the picnic and enjoying the picnic after riding around Versailles. Our tour guide, Marley, provided a most excellent tour and how to navigate to and from Paris
Versailles with a little laignappe
Kimberly_H, Sept 2023
Marley is a knowledgeable guide. The market and the garden bike rides gave great context to the tour of the chateau.
Lovely tour with great views
Elisabeth_H, Aug 2023
We were only 8 persons and it was a very lovely, relaxed and interesting tour with our very friendly guide David! He told us all about the history of Versailles and he had the answer to every question. The picknick was beautiful at the lake there! We would book this tour again!!
If you can't make it, they are not flexible!!
Megan_G, Aug 2023
We were unable to make the trip the morning it was scheduled. We were told by the tour guide that there would be a fee for rebooking and encouraged not to show up later that day. It was then communicated to us that we lost the value of the entire trip and that there was nothing transferrable (even though the tour guide told us that a portion of the trip would be transferrable). No money at all was refunded and we are very upset and do not recommend.
A work out with a view!!
Tony_B, Aug 2023
The ride through the gardens and grounds were amazing. The out buildings at the back of the property along with Maira Antoinette's house and farm very interesting. Our guide David aka Bob was top notch, very knowledgeable
Great Guide
Randy_S, Aug 2023
Jude was great! Enjoyed the bike ride tour with our family very much. Jude and the team did a great job dealing with small items. Beautiful palace!
Lovely Outing
Heidi_F, Aug 2023
The Versailles outing was one of the highlights of our Paris trip. Arturo was an excellent guide who has a wealth of information to share. We loved shopping for lunch at the market and biking our way through the grounds. Would definitely do again.
Best way to see Versailles
Kristie_K, Aug 2023
Great way to get around. My feet were tired from walking around Paris so it was nice to have a break by riding bikes around Versailles. Got to see Marie Antoinette’s little village.
