Versailles by Bike Day Tour
Reviewed by: Sandra G, July 2014
This tour was GREAT!!! We would quickly recommend it to everyone. The open air market, where we loaded up on goodies for lunch, was a treat to experience all on its own. Jeff, our tour guide, was fun and full of historical information, as were all the staff very accommodating to everything from issues with bikes to us running late in the morning (after a long night out beforehand). We will never forget this excursion and it was a nice way to finish off a wonderful trip to Paris.

This is a lovely way to visit the Palace of Versailles, particularly in summer with all the thousands of other visitors.It was so lovely sitting beside the canal having our picnic in the shade with provisions purchased at the market place.Jeff was a great tour leader, he has lots of knowledge about French history that makes the visit come alive. The only downside is trying to find the rather out-of-the-way start point of the tour back in Paris.

Loved our day. It was great to visit the market to buy our lunch. We loved cycling around Versailles and having lunch by the canal. A most enjoyable day.

Guide was great! Loved the bike ride along the gardens. Truly enjoyed our picnic. Palace gets crowded especially on Sundays so the fresh air was the best.

Highlight of our trip to Paris! Our guide was so personal and attentive. The palace, itself, was way too crowded, but, walking the beautiful gardens was delightful. We loved the quality of the bikes, the market where we purchased our lunch, and the "tempo" of the tour. Getting to see the part where the farmhands lived was a favorite. Suggest that all guides make sure there is a scheduled bathroom break, mid-tour. We didn't get that advantage until about 5 hours into the tour. Hard on the ladies!
