Versailles Bike Tour with Skip-the-Line Entrance to Palace
From US$ 91.22
Overview

Magnificent Versailles is one of the world’s great palaces, and on this full-day tour from Paris, you have special skip-the-line privileges that guarantees swift entry to this opulent landmark. Explore its interiors with an audio guide, and see the surrounding area in detail when you travel by bike with a guide. Round-trip train tickets from Paris are included, so you don’t have to fret about logistics.

What to Expect

See how Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette, and French royalty lived during this full-day Versailles bike tour. Depart from Gare Saint-Lazare train station in Paris for Versailles. Included round-trip train tickets make getting around a breeze.

Upon arrival, feel like a local as you browse a market and put together a picnic lunch (own expense). Next, take a bicycle tour of Versailles with your guide. All equipment is included, and you cover more ground pedaling through the palace gardens and other landmarks—including the Grand and Petit Trianons.

As you go, learn about the history of Versailles, the life of Marie Antoinette, the French Revolution, and other stories and scandals from French history.

Skip-the-line access means you beat the crowds and waltz into the palace. With an audio guide, see the glittering Hall of Mirrors and opulent palace’s other features. Explore at your leisure.

Return to central Paris via train, where the tour ends.

Such a Nice Day in Versailles!

My friend and I were guided through the grounds of Versailles by tour guide Martina with Blue Fox bike tours. She was an excellent guide. We met at Gare St Lazard and our train was delayed, so she redirected us to an alternate route. I...More

Great time, would definitely recommend

Decent bikes, well organized. Our tour guide, Nina, was very knowledgeable and handled our trip great. We had rainy weather and detour, which she handled with options. If you're looking for a fun day (even in the rain) without the hassle and responsibility of planning,...More

Wonderful experience!

We enjoyed this tour very much and highly recommend. We had the fortune of booking our tour for a day without rain and when protests broke out in Paris - a good day not to be in town! We met our group (8 + guide)...More

Top marks for guide and picnic

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our bicycle trip around the grounds of Versailles earlier this month (Nov 2018). It was a bit chilly, but sunny, and the level of activity kept us warm. I'm so glad our group opted to shop the covered market...More

False advertising - they do NOT skip the line!

This bike tour was overpriced for what it was. You spend most of the day just getting from the train to the bikes, getting lunch, and then finally getting to Versailles. After a very slow pedal around the gardens with inordinate time spent stopping for...More

Bonjour Judy M, I'm very surprised by your review. The tour you describe sounds nothing like our tour and does not correspond at all with the thousand or so other reviews written specifically for it here on TripAdvisor. If what you are saying is true...More

Not sure it will fit the bike. But, why not if the seat is such ab important item for you. Honestly, for such an easy going tour i would not complicate things and carry my own seat. The one they offer is more than comfy.

There were about 14 in each group and they did split the families up. In our group the kids (ages 10, 12, 13) kept up better than some of the adults.
