Our guide Guillaume brought 200 years of French history to life with anecdotes, humour and humility. The “Rain or shine” mantra is true we were pelted by rain, undaunted and prepared. A memorable way to see Versailles!

We had a great day! The weather was overcast and the crowds were small. The bikes were in great condition and the whole grounds were wonderful on a bike.
