The weather was bad the day of our tour - cold, rainy, and windy, which put a damper on things and probably affected our mood and stamina to a degree. But...moderate walking was advertised, but we walked about 15,000 steps! The bike riding was in a few long spurts, and was great. But for us, there was too much walking and standing, about 4 straight hours, with no opportunity to sit until we stopped for a picnic lunch, on the lawn, no seats. We thought we’d be on bikes most of the time - not so. Also, it would be much better if the tour provided sandwiches for lunch rather than have us buy sandwich components from various merchants...frustrating and very time consuming. On this tour you see the palace at the end of the day, after turning the bikes in at a shop maybe .25 mile from the palace. We were too tired to walk back to the palace, so just caught the train back to Paris. As did the other 4 people on the tour. Just think the tour needs to be redesigned with pacing adjusted.

La excursión por los jardines de Versalles en bici fue muy bonita y el grupo con el que compartimos la experiencia fantástico la pena fue cuando llegó la hora de entrar al palacio, la guía se fue y nos dejó sin saber cómo entrar y sin saber si la misma entrada nos servía y dentro del palacio no tienes guía, por lo que tienes que visitarlo muy rápido porque conseguimos entrar a las 17y a las 17:45 ya te están echando aunque los jardines cierran a las 20:30. De las 8 horas del tour, útiles son solo la mitad ya que entre metro trenes etc empiezas a coger la bicicleta tarde. El picnic muy breve

More walking than biking
It was a good tour. As mentioned more walking than biking. I think if it was cooler outside it wouldn’t have been so miserable. The tour itself was great. Our guide was very nice and tried to find shaded areas every chance. He couldn’t help the extreme hot weather.

Great tour - watch out for birds.
Great tour. Joshua was a great guide and the palace was amazing. Overall we had a great time - biking is the way to go. Warning - DO NOT leave food in your bicycle basket, even if it’s covered and tied up - the birds will eat your lunch in its entirety.

verwachting hooggespannen, maar trip viel duidelijk tegen
Op de website wordt gesproken over een picknick aan het canal in Versailles. Niet duidelijk was dat je zelf de etenswaren voor deze picknick diende te kopen in het dorpje van Versaille. Gevolg: geen eten bij ons. Kwaliteit van de fietsen was zeer matig. Op de site word gesuggereerd dat men een echte bike-tour gaat boeken. De duur was geen 8 uur zoals omschreven, maar maar 7 uur, waarvan slechts een klein deeltje per fiets. Dus zeker geen "bike-tour". Voor 2 personen € 190,-- afrekenen is dan ook aan de erg dure kant. Overigens waren de tuinen en het paleis minder indrukwekkend. Het geheel maakt een vervallen indruk. Fonteinen die niet spuiten, geen mooie engels of franse tuinen, maar met " bloemetjes" opgekrikte borders. Veel lege uitgeklede kamers in het paleis en absoluut geen fatsoenlijke catering of restaurant waar men iets kan drinken....al-met-al voor het geld een echte tegenvaller!

Fantastisk upplevelse
Vi är väldigt nöjda med turen. Ally var en fantastisk guide som fungerade som vän/guide som hon själv sa vilket var väldigt hjälpsamt då vi var nya i staden. Vi skulle starkt rekommendera den här upplevelsen!

I had a great time cycling around with our guide Aly!
Aly, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of Versailles. We had a nice time exploring the grounds. Biking with a guide is the way to visit the outside of Versailles. You can see and do more this way! Thanks for a lovely experience!

The best way to see Versailles!
I highly recommend this trip. You will see more of the city, chateau and grounds than is possible visiting by foot. Our guide, Mark, was exceptional. He created a fun, relaxing, and informative environment. My personal favorite part was shopping in the market and the picnic lunch by the Grand Canal. Take advantage of this opportunity to take a trip back in time at Versailles.

The bike ride was perfect! Couldn’ t have asked for a better guide, Alli. It was informative and fun. The ride was mostly flat there was 1 hill but not bad. Alli really made it a very enjoyable experience and would highly recommend this bike ride.

Great way to see Versailles
Great tour and a really good way to see all of Versailles and not just the main palace area most people see. Mark was an excellent guide and the small size of the group and personal nature of the tour was a real bonus, especially compared to other huge bike tour groups we saw on our travels. Really enjoyed the stop in the lovely market to shop for our picnic lunch.

Anbefales
Ally var veldig informativ som visste det meste om slottet og omegn. Sykkel var en grei måte å komme seg rundt på, da en får med seg mere enn til fots.

Versailles from the saddle of a bike was an unforgettable experience!
Mark was the best tour guide! Knowledgeable, friendly and oh-so-funny. There was a minor mishap on our tour and he handled it like a champ. My family and I had the best time as members of "Mark's Minions." :-)

Radtour mit wenig Rad fahren
Grundsätzlich besteht diese Tour aus Pausen ,Spaziergängen durch Versailles und nur sehr kurzen Abschnitten wo Fahrrad gefahren wird.Für einen als Fahrradtour angebotenen Ausflug viel zu kurz. Der Guide war allerdings sehr gut.

Well worth it!
Such a fun way to tour. Half the time was walking around the points of interest and then biking from one point to another. Our guide was Luca and he was very friendly and informative. Small group (12 bikers) which was very manageable in terms of staying together and hearing Luca's narrative.

it was fantastic!
Our guide Mark was outstanding! He was personable, funny, informative, knowledgeable and timely. It was the best way to tour Versailles. He related to all ages and involved us which was genius. Going to the farmers market was one of the highlights of the trip - have never seen a market like this amazing! Marks recommendations were spot on! We all enjoyed our purchases with a picnic lunch on the stunning grounds of Versailles. Well done!

Leuke afwissellende interessante dag!
Wij hebben genoten van een hele leuke dag, vol met bijzondere wetenswaardigheden die Marc ons met veel animo vertelde. Gelukkig konden wij zijn tempo wel bijhouden, maar niet geschikt voor mensen die wat traag te been te zijn. De uitleg was super grappig en dynamisch gebracht. Wel aan de snelle kant dus je moet echt wel goed engels verstaan om alles te kunnen volgen.

Fantastic!
Our guide was mark and we found him funny, knowledgeable and engaging. We loved getting to see much of Versailles WITHOUT the crowds as we were able to explore more of the grounds by bike. LOVED the Versailles market and mark gave great advice on what to buy for the picnic. Would definitely recommend!
