Versailles by Bike Day Tour

OMG I just finished writing a really long review for this and then the site deleted it when it asked me to sign in ahhhhh! The main points - Valentine was the best guide I've ever had on any of these tours. Insanely knowledgable about everything and not in your face about it. He's so chill I never felt like I was in a classroom but walked away feeling like I knew every detail about the history of Versailles. The bikes were totally worth it - completely different experience than my first visit to Versailles as a teenager. Lastly, Versailles markets were incredible. Full markets operate only twice a week apparently and Friday is one of those days. That's when we luckily were there. AMAZING. Sorry, I cannot bring myself to re-write the whole review. I even tried the back button! This was my most anticipated tour going to Paris and it did not disappoint! Do it!!

AMAZING! This was a great way to see Versailles, I feel like the other tours where you do not see the grounds are depriving you so much of the beauty of this hunting cabin. Our tour guide Cain - spelling?, who was Irish, kept the tour fun and very informative. We learned so much about the significance of Versailles, the history and it was just beautiful. By far one of our favorite experiences in Paris.

This tour was my favourite day, out of my whole trip to Europe!! You have to book it! The bike riding was even more exciting than the actual palace. Yes the palace grounds are that beautiful! Don't get me wrong, the palace is amazing. But I'm so glad that I didn't choose a walking tour. I would have missed out on so much! Danial was a great tour guide and so helpful when we had no idea what to buy for the picnic. Do yourselves a favour and buy chicken terrain at the local market. Better than the food that I had in Paris. Thanks for an awesome day out. I recommend this tour to anyone :D

This was the highlight of our 8 day trip to Pairs. Our tour guide was amazing and gave the group some awesome information that I will never forget.
Versailles is a total of 2,000 acres and would be impossible to walk the full grounds on foot in a day. This tour took us to all of the attractions and to the end of the ground. The market place was a great added benefit to this tour as we were able to pick our own foods to have for dinner. If you buy a sandwich and don't use the fresh local ingredients to make your sandwich or choice of lunch, you are doing yourself a disservice. We bought meat, cheese, veggies for sandwich and salad, along with snacks and a bottle of wine. The lunch was one of the best parts of the trip. Try to learn a little bit of French before the marketplace as it will make it a bit easier to get exactly what you want. Every vendor is helpful but it is not like metro Paris, many don't speak English but you can still get some great food for yourself and your party.
