A Truly Unique Experience
Laurence_L
, May 2022
We really enjoyed this unique tour by bicycle of the Versailles grounds not generally seen by the ordinary visitor. The picnic lunch, purchased at the large farmers market, eaten on the Versailles grounds far from the palace was a highlight. Our tour guide, Vanessa, was very personable adding to the experience; she clearly enjoyed what she was doing. We did several day tours while in France and this was easily the best value for the price.

The best way to visit Versailles with a family!

This was one of our favorite family activities in Paris. We had so much fun biking around the gardens and getting a wonderful tour of parts of Versaille I had never seen before. Our favorite part of the day was the farmer's market and French picnic in the gardens. Such a great way to experience Versailles!

Cecilia was an amazing guide! She was knowledgeable and very helpful with directions after the tour. This is a great tour to see a lot of Versailles via bikes. We also got to experience the cute markets of Versailles and had a picnic! Only con was not having Cecelia with us in the château to explain and give her great stories! There was audio guide, but not as nice as an in person guide. Overall really enjoyed the day!

Bonjour Lauren, Thank you so much for the feedback. We greatly appreciate your compliments about our tour guide being super nice and how the tour that he gave in Versailles was great! I am disappointed by the fact that you only gave us a 3-star rating though as the thing that seemed to disappoint you about the tour was not at all something that our company did wrong nor failed to do for you. I'm sorry to learn that there were other tour participants that were always late. Our guides are trained to be very kind but also straightforward and keep everyone in their little group on schedule and together. Despite our best efforts and in spite of how frustrating it can be, we cannot simply kick someone off of a group tour, that they have paid for, because they are always a little bit slower than everyone else. It appears that the slow people did not affect the timing of the tour too much though or you probably would have mentioned not getting into the Chateau. (We aren't allowed to arrive late for the reserved entrance time.) Nor did you mention feeling rushed when you walked through the hamlet village of Marie-Antoinette. (Which is the last part of the tour that you do with our guide. Anyways, I would like to remind everyone who is thinking of booking with us that we have absolutely no control over the free will of the tour participants who book and pay for our tours. We don't have any Voodoo tricks that make you all cycle in a straight line evenly spaced apart like little tin soldiers. This tour is open to the public for booking and we cannot possibly know if a person is going to be: - a leisurely cyclist - An Instagrammer who takes a hundred pictures of the beautiful grounds in Versailles - a bit absent-minded when it comes to watching their clock - A real stickler for the rules and always come back a few minutes before the guide asked them to do so and then get upset by the others who show up a few minutes after the guide asked them to meet back up from a toilet break. Everybody is different! We would greatly appreciate it if people would stop knocking off stars for our company, when they leave reviews, as we really have no control over the people who book our small group tours and their performance as good tour participants really have nothing to do with the bike tour we have advertised and delivered. All my best, -Hava

Fun tour and a bit of exercise
Richard_L
, Apr 2022
After walking so much in Paris, it was nice to use different muscles! The bikes were fun and our guide led us around the massive grounds of Versailles. Due to threat of rain, we skipped the picnic lunch (even though the market in town was fun to browse through) and ate at a pleasant and reasonable restaurant on the grounds of Versailles. We stopped at both the Grande & Petite Trianon as well as walked through Marie Antoinette's "fake" farm. Our guide, who was very personable, bid us adieu at the gates of the chateaux with excellent directions on getting back to Paris. Overall, well-organized and fun tour to get away from the crowds and get a little easy exercise. All expenses were covered by the cost of the tour. I gave a generous tip to our guide for an excellent day.
