Biking is the best way to experience all of Versailles in one day and this bike tour is stress-free, interactive and tons of fun.  Most other Versailles tours only see a fraction of what you will see during your bike tour through the legendary town & gardens of Versailles.

Your outstanding guide has planned an unforgettable day trip from Paris...taking the 10-mile train trip and then cruising through the town of Versailles to the amazing local food market and into the royal grounds & gardens.  You’ll enjoy a French picnic (that you’ll pick up on your own at the market) by the Grand Canal and have free time to mingle with other travelers.  Then you'll pedal on to explore Marie Antoinette's village before making your way to the legendary Chateau.  You’ll then have plenty of free time to explore the palace at your own pace.  This tour is not about stuffy history lessons & boring lectures.  It's about hearing all the fun stories and quirky anecdotes.  Tours should be fun and this one is!

Train tickets, bikes, admissions to the village and the palace & gardens are all included in the tour price.
