Versailles by Bike Day Tour

See the splendors of Versailles, inside and out, on this full-day tour from Paris. Hop aboard an RER train with your guide and head straight to the historic home of the French monarchy. Take a bike tour of the palace grounds, discover spots most visitors miss, and enjoy a picnic lunch (own expense) next to the Grand Canal. Then venture inside the palace for an in-depth audio tour.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in central Paris and embark on a journey to Versailles: included round-trip train tickets make it easy to travel on the RER. Upon arrival in Versailles, pick up your bicycle and other equipment, and set off on an in-depth tour.

Begin at a bustling village market, where you can pick up a baguette, cheeses, and other traditional French nibbles (own expense) for lunch. Before you eat, work up an appetite biking around the palace’s sprawling grounds. See the Grand and Petit Trianons, visit Marie Antoinette’s Hameau, and discover other corners that on-foot visitors would miss. After your ride, enjoy your picnic lunch next to the Grand Canal.

The tour continues with guaranteed entrance to the palace. With an audio tour accompaniment, explore the Hall of Mirrors, King’s State Apartments, and King’s Chapel at your own pace, and learn more about Versailles’ (literally) rich history.

Your day in Versailles ends when you board an RER train bound for Paris.

Amazing Day!

This was a great way to see the palace and the grounds. Our tour guide, Nick, was knowledgeable and helpful with other places to see in Paris. The picnic lunch was a nice tough - bring bug spray though. Definitely recommend this tour,

If you are interested in visiting Versallies, do not do it without going on this tour. We learned so much and saw so much more of the grounds than if we had done it on our own. Thomas, our guide, was FANTASTIC! He did a...More

You can return via train at your leisure - you are just given tickets for the RER when the tour is over and you're entering the palace.

My folks (70) were on our trip. As others have said, if your mom can ride a bike with confidence, then it should not be a problem. The route is flat for the most part and the brief riding on streets was in town with very... More
