We did the Versailles Bike Tour with Bike Boutique Tours and our tour guide was Nicholas. We had an absolutely amazing day. Nicola was so knowledgeable and gave us info all throughout the day. The tour was veey organized. Very good pace for the entire group (we had a large age group from a young teen to over 60) - plenty of ime to purchase our picnic items - plenty of picnic time - and then plenty of time inside the the castle. Amazing day!

Great time despite bad weather. Great guide in Fiona with great commentary. I didn't realize the tour was legit biking which we discovered quickly. Fiona was great at making sure the inexperienced bikers in the group were comfortable. But this was a little more physically involved than I initially expected. Totally worth it though - amazing day.
