The Versailles Day Bike Tour from Paris
From US$103.91
Overview
Experience the magnificence of Versailles on a fun full-day bike tour, including round-trip transfers by train from Paris. Meet your guide on arrival and spend the day pedalling around the beautiful parks, royal gardens and forest trails. Stop to explore Marie Antoinette’s hamlet, snap photos of the grandiose palace from unique viewpoints and enjoy a picnic (own expense) along the Versailles' Grand Canal.
What to Expect
After a short train ride from Paris, your Versailles bike tour starts as you collect the bikes with your guide next to the train station.

Following your guide, ride through the town of Versailles, stopping at the historic food market to buy picnic supplies for lunch (own expense). Then pedal into the royal grounds of the Palace of Versailles, hearing about its history and entertaining anecdotes from your guide. Cruise through the French gardens—some of the most stunning in the world—and make your way to a picnic spot along the Grand Canal, with a view of the palace in the background.

After lunch, visit the rarely seen Queen's hamlet, Marie Antoinette's self-designed village in the forests of Versailles. Your guide then leads you back into town, where you have free time to explore the interior of the palace on your own before returning to Paris on the train.

The Way to See Versailles!

This is the way to see Versailles! We met our guide, Tom, (American, knowledgable, and fun!) in front of Notre Dame, then walked with him to the train. Once we reached Versailles we picked up our bikes and took off. This may be my only...More

It’s tight but yes. It takes about 45 minutes to get from the train station in Versailles to most stations in Paris proper. But watch the train stations carefully! We had to jump on different trains to get to where we needed... More
