WONDERFUL AFTERNOON WITH A GREAT GUIDE! PICNIC BY THE CANAL WAS SPECIAL!

I totally enjoyed this tour. The grounds and gardens were beautiful to view and the picnic lunch by the river was a charm. It gives a more comprehensive view of the vastness of the grounds at Versailles as well as learning about the foibles of the various Louis' who occupied the chateau. It was like getting a history lesson on the events that led up to the French Revolution as well as a window into what it was like to live like a king and queen in that era.

This tour is a great way to explore Versailles. Our tour guide Declan was very knowledgable and brought a lot of color to the history of the palace. The highlight of the tour was exploring the garden behind the Petit Trianon where Marie Antoinette built a replica of a local village.

My 2 sisters and I highly recommend the Fat Tire Versailles by Bike Day Tour. It was hands-down the highlight of our 4 day trip to Paris. Our guide Louis was fun and knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. The bikes were well maintained and it was indeed a great way to see the enormous grounds. We went in early October and while it was a bit chilly with the wind, it was sunny and perfect for sitting down to a picnic. They provided a tarp for us to sit on which worked well, we had brought a blanket just in case. It is a wonderful way to get around the grounds and there are only a few places where it was a bit harrowing going through the town in traffic - however Louis instructed us on how to DOMINATE and we were all fine.
There is a bit of walking with the tour as well so you get your exercise in. But again, I would highly recommend it as a tour not to be missed for those who have no mobility issues.
