Would not recommend (Tourist Trap)
Nomad794838
, Oct 2019
I would not recommend. You spend most of the day off of the bikes and are really only on them to commute from one side of the estate to the other. It’s also very inefficient. Large amounts of time spent chaining the bikes each time you get on and off. The biggest inconvenience was after lunch you have to leave Versailles and pedal back into the city to return your bike. ONLY once returned can you actually go into the palace of Versailles. By that time it was already 3:30pm and to top it off your tour guide doesn’t even accompany into the actual palace. Please don’t waste your money.

This tour was so much fun. Our guide, Dan, was very fun, knowledgeable and organized. I would definitely recommend this tour it was the highlight of my trip to Paris. I almost cancelled Bc I got lazy a few days before, but I’m really glad I went. I would definitely do this tour again next time I’m back in France.

Wonderful way to tour the grounds

Our tour guide, Josh and his shadow, Charlie, were wonderful. They were both from England and were engaging an knowledgeable. They took care to keep us hydrated as it was a record setting day for heat in Paris and the surrounding areas. They shared that, by law, restaurants have to fill your water bottle on request and showed us where the refill stations were throughout our trip. They gave us the scoop on where to buy our picnic supplies. The metro trip over was quick - the information interesting and the scenery lovely. We never felt rushed. Ten out of ten recommend.

Not probably planned

The excursion seems to be not probably planned and organised. First. you have to go all the way from the centre of Paris to Versaille in public transport. No use of centrally located meeting point then(((secondly, a lot of time is wasted on getting the bikes and taking them back. The market is a nice idea, although it' also seems to be a bit of waste of time. The picnic was nice, though. The bike route seems to be strange- we saw a lot of country side which is actually not exciting at all. The hamlet was the only nice part. What is important: the ticket doesn't give a right to priority pass. We got to the queue only at about, had to wait for about 40 minutes, so didn't get much time inside. Our guide Rachel was Ok, but a bit overtalkative as for me .. she also should have got us into the line - that would have been nice and suitable. The group was great, if you read it - thank you guys :-)

Loved that we could see more on a bike. Rachel was great and I loved the people who joined me that day. Didn’t know I had to shop for a snack (wine, cheese, bread and fruit) once we arrived at Versailles via metro, as shopping in an open market not knowing the language was a challenge for me, but it worked out and the picnic on the chateau grounds was a treat!

What a spectacular day. Seeing the grounds by bike was definitely the way to go as they are so big! Our picnic on the canal with local produce was fantastic. We were extra lucky as it was a fountain day. I just loved it.

Excellent day out and great way to see all the main areas of the palace and gardens. Cycling was enjoyable but to be honest I didn't enjoy the part through Versailles itself but that is partly because I am not used to riding a bike through traffic. Could also be slower paced. Was a bit too rushed for me. I was there to see the sights and enjoy the scenery, not to pretend I am Tour de France material. All in all a lovely day though. Any day at the palace of Versailles would be perfect. Also the little market where you pick up your lunch supplies is so lovely.
