Full description

Explore the 2,000-acre grounds of the Palace of Versailles on a full-day bike tour from Paris with a entry timed ticket, and discover the unrivaled opulence of the Sun King’s royal residence. Following your transfer from Paris, start the day at the farmer's market in the town of Versailles. Select the produce you want for a picnic lunch later in the day, choosing from the mounds of cheeses, fresh fruits, charcuterie, and more. Then, it’s time to cycle the landscaped grounds of the Palace, cruising effortlessly from one picturesque spot to another on lightweight aluminum bikes.

Your guide will take you to the outhouse chateaux of the Petit and Grand Trianon, and show you Marie-Antoinette’s private village and farm. Pedal through sumptuous landscapes, ending with a look inside the Chateau of Versailles itself. Here, you will be given plenty of time to focus on what interests you most, explore at your leisure.

This tour was one of our favorite parts of our time in Paris. I can’t imagine seeing Versailles any other way, and Thibaut was just the best. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and clearly experienced. If you plan on visiting the palace, and you want the full experience then this tote is definitely the way to go!

Honestly one of the best tours we went on during our trip. Cecilia met our group in Paris and we took a train to Versailles. Cycling around Versailles was great and pretty easy (compared to walking). She told us very interesting stories at each site we went to. In a day we saw all three palaces, had lunch at Angelina’s (No picnic due to the weather). We were given ponchos for our bike tour, since it rain a bit. 10/10 would recommend!

This was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. Versailles was beautiful, and our tour guide, Arnaud, was the AMAZING. He made the tour really fun and interesting with his recommendations, jokes, and knowledge. The bike ride was great with the beautiful scenery and certainly gave me a workout. I can’t say enough about this. I will treasure this experience.
