Versailles by Bike Day Tour
From US$118.59
Overview

See the splendors of Versailles, inside and out, on this full-day tour from Paris. Hop on board an RER train with your guide and head straight to the historic home of the French monarchy. You’ll go on a bike tour of the palace grounds, discover sites most visitors miss, and enjoy a picnic lunch (own expense) next to the Grand Canal. Then, venture inside the palace for an in-depth audio tour.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in central Paris and embark on a morning journey to Versailles: round-trip tickets on the RER make it easy to travel beyond city limits. Upon your arrival in Versailles, pick up your bicycle and other equipment, and set off on an in-depth tour.

Begin at a bustling village market, where you can pick up a baguette, cheese, and other traditional French nibbles (own expense) for a picnic lunch. Before you eat, you’ll work up an appetite as you bike around the palace’s sprawling grounds. See the Grand and Petit Trianons, visit Marie Antoinette’s Hameau, and discover other corners visitors on-foot would miss. After your ride, settle in for lunch next to the Grand Canal.

The tour continues with guaranteed entrance to the palace. With an audio tour accompaniment, explore the Hall of Mirrors, King’s State Apartments, and Chapel at your own pace, and learn more about Versailles’ rich history.

Your full day out in Versailles ends when you board an RER train straight back to central Paris.

Well worth it. I would add that it would have been a nice addition to have cold water waiting for the group for the bus ride home. Very minimal cost but those little extras go a long ways. We had a few incapable bikers on...More
