Versailles by Bike Day Tour
Reviewed by: Cheryl P, May 2015
My favorite day during our trip to Paris!
After the hustle and bustle of the city riding our bikes on the huge palace grounds was heavenly.
Everything was very well planned out, easy bike riding no hills. You can cover so much more ground on a bike, I feel like we saw more than most people.
Stopping at the market for picnic food was fun and eating the picnic by the canal was even more fun!
Touring the actual Palace is the very last thing of the tour, after dropping bikes off, so you can stay as long as you want and take the train back to Paris on your own. Simple to get to the train station without a guide, no worries.
It was a fun day and we loved it - even got back to Paris in time to go out for dinner.
Our guide, Drew, was terrific - full of energy and made sure we all had what we needed and had a good time.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Rode through the castle grounds like the royal hunting party! Beauitful scenery and tranquility for the soul.
Our guide Alexandria was amazing. She took care of all the riders, gave us tips on the best market stalls, told us vivid stories of the Kings and Queens. A must!

Biking around the groups of Versailles was a great way to spend a day! We began by shopping at a local market for picnic supplies, a highlight of the trip. After biking and touring the property, we enjoyed a picnic alongside the canal. The inside of the palace was quite crowded, but certainly worth a visit. Dan was a fabulous guide and made the day fun as well as informative. I highly recommend this tour!

We had a great day biking around Versailles with our guide Drew. The logistics were easy and made the day enjoyable since there was no stress. Drew made sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time throughout the whole course of the day. The only thing Drew couldnt do was change the weather, which was an overcast 45 degrees on the day of our tour. Despite being a Floridian and feeling like a frozen snowman the entire day, we had a great time. It was really fun going to the market and picking up items for our lunch by the Grand Canal. Drew gave us a good overview of the period of history around Versailles so when we went into the palace we already had a good understanding of what we were seeing, which was helpful since the audio guide wasnt very good.
If one thing could be improved it would be bringing the guide inside for a tour instead of using the audio guide. Other than that we had a great day and would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in mixing up a normal day at the museum.
