My mom and I loved everything about our day in Versailles! It was easy to meet the group, hop on the train and pick up our bikes. Before heading to the gardens, we had time to browse a local food market and pick up fix-ins for a picnic, which was lots of fun! We then spent the rest of the morning and afternoon exploring the sprawling landscape of Versailles by bike (we saw so much and were able to cover a lot more ground than had we traveled by foot!), pausing along the way to learn about the history of this landmark from our informative guide*. We certainly earned our picnic, which was delightful. At the end of the cycling portion of the day, we skipped the line and were able to experience the rest of the Versailles palace at our own pace. Great value! *I cannot remember our guide's name, but he is English, running the 2019 NYC marathon, and works as a translator for business professionals. Hopefully that will identify him and earn him credit for a wonderful experience!
This was the very BEST way to see all of the behind-the-scenes of Versailles. We started our day at the train station in Paris where we met up with our group. Our guide, Robin, was incredible-so friendly, inclusive, and knowledgeable of Versailles and Paris, in general. From there we traveled to the town of Versailles, we walked to the market in Versailles to buy our picnic provisions for our lunch picnic on the Grand Canal. We then walked to the garage of Blue Fox Travel where the bikes are kept, got our bikes and helmets, packed our lunches in the basket on the bikes and took off on bikes to Versailles! Riding along the Grand Canal and seeing all of the structures on the property includng Marie Antoinette's Estate, farm, animals, gardens, the King's summer home, and the Palace. ALL incredible. Got much information of history and had a wonderful time! Don't hesitate-Book now!
Don’t miss this tour! Stu & Niki go above and beyond to make sure their tour guests have all their expectations met! With all the difficulties and changes associated with traveling during COVID, they were so patient and helpful in answering our many questions long before the trip even began. They were very responsive and made a number of accommodations from helping us with private transportation to offering to hold our luggage during our tour. Once we arrived in Paris the bike tour, visit to the market, picnic lunch on the Grand Canal and guided tour of Versailles exceed our expectations! Our tour guide Nichola, was simply amazing. So informative and funny all in one. I have traveled all over the world and this is not a tour you want to miss! If only Stu and Niki could operate all the tour companies in Paris! They know how to do it best!!!
It was the highlight of our holiday trip!!! Cecilia was our guide, super attentive to everyone taking thw tour: curious kids as well as grown ups. I signed up with my friend and had lots of fun riding the bikes, putting together our picninc basket and just learning and walking with the group. I would 1000% do this again!
The best way to see Versailles! We enjoyed the ride very much! The tour company is well organized and professional! This is definitely one of the highlights of our trip to France!
