Perfect way to see Versailles! Blue Bike Tours make is super easy for you, they meet you at the Lazare train station and ride the train with you out to Versailles. After a quick shop at the local market to pick up lunch supplies we hoped on the bikes and took a leisurely ride around the ground of palace of Versailles. The guides where fantastic giving a thorough history of the construction, history of the palace and it's inhabitants. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Bikes were excellent quality and fun and easy to ride. Guide Thomas was a little bit unrehearsed and didn't know some of his dates and history, he should stick to singing I think.overall thought it is good value for money and a great way to see a lot of Paris sights in 4 hours. Excellent communications from company via email.

We took part in two Blue Bike Tours during our week in Paris. Firstly we did the Secrets of Paris tour, led by Kevin. It was very interesting - Kevin showed us lots of spots that we would never have seen by ourselves. Kevin kept our group together well and kept us safe, although there was very little riding on busy roads. Paris is a flat city with lots of small roads and lanes so ideal for a bike tour. Kevin spoke very good English and could be heard easily by everyone in our group of about nine riders.

Our second tour, the next day, was led by Claire to Versailles. Claire was delightful and took time to talk to all of our group of nine individually to make sure that they were comfortable and enjoying themselves. Cycling around the gardens at Versailles was great and places could be visited that would have taken a long to get to by foot. A highlight was buying our lunch at the local market in Versailles, then sharing lunch on a grassy bank overlooking the lake and Palace.

This was a wonderful way to see all parts of the palace and grounds. The group size was much smaller compared to other bike tours that we saw which was helpful to navigate around the grounds as well as more efficient! We really enjoyed the history we learned from our guide Claire and her positive energy. Would recommend for couples, friends, or families with older children.

We did the BB tour to Versailles and had a good time! Our guide was sweet and knowledgable but I do think they could have made sure you got all the information you needed right! After biking around which was great, you return the bike and walk back to the grounds, she hands you the pass to go into the museum and leaves you there on your own. It would have been nicer to have a guided tour of the house, and then she gave us the wrong time if the fountain show, so we had to wait longer than we thought as we rushed through the house because we did not want to miss the fountain show, they don't do it often!

Overall I would do it again, but might try another company, our guide could have been better
