Know More about this tour

Together with your guide, you'll walk to the RER train station to make the 30-minute trip by train to Versailles. Once in Versailles, you will pick up your bike at at an office just 5 minutes from the Palace of Versailles. The first of many highlights on this active day out is a visit to Versailles' village market to buy baguettes, cheese, ham, wine and whatever else you desire for your delicious picnic lunch in Versailles' gardens. These picnic provisions are purchased at your own expense.

The next highlight today is a bike ride through the gardens behind Versailles palace. You'll leave foot visitors behind on your tour of the palace by bicycle, as visitors on foot can visit only a small fraction of the palace gardens. Versailles' gardens and forests are crisscrossed by a network of fantastic trails and tree-lined paths, so bring your camera for picture-perfect views in every direction.

Arriving at the far end of the Grand Canal, you'll settle down for a picnic in the exact spot where Louis XIV, XV and XVI ate in order to marvel at their palace. Relax on the grass in peace where only your cycling group will be able to easily reach this end of the Grand Canal.

After lunch, pedal back towards the palace itself for an unforgettable view into the lives of the French monarchy before their removal from power by the Revolution in 1789. You'll visit the Hall of Mirrors (site of the treaty ending World War I), the King's State Apartments and the amazing King's Chapel (audio guide available). After your visit to Versailles you'll return to Paris via RER train.

  • Absolutely one of the best tours we have taken on any trip, would recommend to anyone!!!

  • Excelente paseo! Nunca lo olvidaré. Hacía mucho frío pero la bicicleta nos hizo despertar y nos encantó disfrutar el lunch que compramos en el pueblo sentados en el pasto. Increíbles vistas de Versailles y además la visita al Castillo. Este viaje es un MUST.

  • One of the best tours I have ever done. Everyone should do this when they go to Paris

  • Wow!!! Our best day, and best tour, of 3 weeks in France ! From the minute we arrived at Fat Tire Tours near the Eiffel Tower until we stepped off the RER back from Versailles our guide, from Wyoming, was with us. Amazing.
    When we arrived in the town of Versailles we picked up our bikes and headed to the market. Our guide explained how the market was laid out, the best shops for bread, sweets, cheese, fruits, et al....and gave us 1 hour to shop. I thought, well I can do this in 15 minutes. Was I wrong. The shopping itself was an enjoyable adventure...and we used the entire hour.
    The Bike Tour: Spectacular. We lover every minute of our ride, and the stops with background stories at the Grand Trianon, the The Petite Trianon, the grand lake and the Village made this special. By the time we stopped for lunch, we had bicycled thru sun and April showers -- but our guide brought plastic sheeting fro us to sit on while we ate by the garden lake.
    Oh, yes, we did tour the Palace on our own. Full of gold, mirrors, paintings. All that we imagined. But the highlight of the day was still riding bikes around the grounds. I would recommend this for all. Note: our group covered ages 10 to 68, and all felt welcome.
    Next time in Paris, I may do this catch what I missed the first time.

  • LOVED this day excursion - even with the rain! This is a great way to see the grounds of Versailles. I was ready to go again the next day!

  • Amazing guide! Great way to see the grounds of Versailles! Picnic was amazing. Would do this again!

  • This is very great experience. Definitely recommend! Our guide, Nat, is really professional and funny. Seriously, if not join this tour, there's lots of parts that we would miss out. Versailles is really too big for just by walking. Having picnic lunch with everyone was very enjoyable.

  • There was so much to see on this tour and it didn’t disappoint. Our guide, a funny British guy, gave great recommendations at the local market to pick up food for our picnic lunch. He shared an interesting history of the palace and grounds throughout the ride. A Lovely day!

  • This was so much fun, one of the highlights of our trip.

  • Cam was an amazing guide!! He made the trip so wonderful and wouldn't have been the same without him. Would highly recommend this tour. LOVED the stop at the market. One of our favorite days in Paris, if not the best!
