Full description
Explore the miraculous Palace of Versailles on a full-day sightseeing tour by bike. Meeting at a central location near the Eiffel Tower in Paris, your guide will take you to the nearest RER station, for the quick train trip to Versailles.

Once at Versailles, visit the village market to buy baguettes, cheese, ham, wine, or whatever you desire for a picnic lunch, to be held later in the Chateau's gardens. You will then spend most of the day riding in a relaxed fashion through the tree-lined gardens and near the Grand Canal.

The average Versailles tourist often doesn't realize that they will only visit a small fraction of the gardens if they go by foot. But on this 8-hour tour, you will see it all. The tour includes round-trip train tickets from Paris to Versailles and back, and all necessary bike equipment, including children's seats, should you require them.
