Versailles Bike Day Tour

Greet your expert English-speaking guide and the rest of the group in a small park in Paris and set off to Versailles on a comfortable train.

Upon arrival in the quaint town of Versailles, hop on a bicycle and peddle to the renowned city market, where you'll choose your picnic supplies (not included in the tour price). Next, you'll ride to the Palace of Versailles and discover its beautiful grounds, packed with pretty tree-lined paths and winding trails. During the bike tour, you'll stop numerous times to learn about the fascinating history of one of the most famous monuments of world heritage.

Once you get to the Grand Canal, park your bike and enjoy a delicious hand-picked picnic. With your energy restored, cruise through the grounds to visit Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet and the Petit Trianon, a small château commissioned by Louis XV of France. Afterwards, make your way to the Palace of Versailles, where you'll be handed skip-the-line entrance tickets, so you can avoid the endless queues and walk straight in. Visit its striking rooms and learn about the beginning of the French Revolution with your English language audioguide. Then, discover the wonderful Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end the First World War.

You can spend as much time as you want visiting the Palace and, after the visit, you can return to Paris with by train, the price of the ticket is included in the tour.
