Know More about this tour

Your guide will give you an orientation session to get you acquainted with your Segway, a personal, self-balancing transportation device that lets you cruise effortlessly along smooth ground. Because youll be on a Segway, youll cover more ground than you would by foot, letting you experience Versailles with ease plus, theyre fun to ride!
Start with a ride through the breathtaking Versailles Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Ride along the edge of the Grand canal and listen as your guide points out The grand trianon, the Petit trianon, the Queen's Hamlet, the kings horse stables and other noteworthy buildings, scattered throughout the park.
Stop periodically to hear about the history of King Louis XIV, whose lavish, over-the-top fantasies led him to commission this grand estate as his palatial retreat in the 17th century. Pause in front of the majestic Palace of Versailles to take photos and admire its grandeur.
Of course you can always visit the Palace independently once your tour is over (own expense, closed on Monday), and learn about the fascinating history of this remarkable building.

    We got to Versaille early so that we would have enough time to find the segways. Unfortunately, the address/location listed on the ticket was not the right location they were in, and every person we asked to point us in the right direction told us opposite information. After an HOUR, 3 miles walked in the cold, 6 phone calls with the tour guide, we found them on the far side of the gardens. I have to say, I was SHOCKED that they waited 45 minutes for us and still gave us the full tour!!! Great service, and friendly guy. I think it was because we were the last tour of the day, but I sill am happy with how they handled it- definitely recommend!

    It turned out to be a great activity, but I would suggest that people put "Grand Canal" into their phone destinations to find the meeting location. It took us 30 minutes to walk to this location from where the uber dropped us off and we missed the tour! Arthur was amazing and gave us a personal tour instead a little later in the day. The tour is for the external gardens and was very fun. We ended up renting a golf cart for about 35 euro to see the formal gardens so we felt like we saw alot that day.

    Best way to see the gardens of Versailles - our operator knew we had been before so we chose to go further with less commentary. Highly recommended.

    The Segway was a nice way to see the gardens. There isn't too much to see in the gardens pasted the canal, but my 13 year old thought the Segway was cool. Keep in mind that the walk to the Segway meeting point is long, so make sure you read the detailed instructions in the info they email.

    Arthur was charming and informative about Versailles, and he and the rest of the team did a great job ensuring the safety and comfort of everyone in our group.

    What great fun. The guides are superb and the Segways get you around the huge park seeing things you otherwise wouldn’t see. Brilliant a must do!!

    We booked a 2:30pm tour for segways and was told to meet by the grand canal. Meeting directions were not the best. We were told you could get there through the main gardens of Versaille or a side street with no address provided and even our taxi driver didn't know. We opted for the garden entrance thinking we would have time to walk them for a bit before our tour only to find out that it was a 45-minute wait just to buy a ticket. (We arrived at 1:20pm for our 2:30pm tour) Once we got the ticket it was another 20 minute walk down to the grand canal. Once there, no clear signs or hosts to help you find the right meeting point and made us 45- minutes LATE! These details might be helpful to know if you have never been to Versaille. However, the tour guide was awesome and got us in at 4:30pm so we rented a boat, got lunch and ended up having a great day. All's well that end's well, I guess but PLAN AHEAD if you are going through the gardens before your tour. And the meeting point is on the left corner just beyond the exit gates, close to the ice cream stand. :)

    This is a fun way to see the grounds of the Palace of Versailles! Even on a damp and cool day it was great! If you get a chance do it!

    really was great. Had a problem and had to change days at the last moment. They were very helpful and accommodating. Great way to see the gardens.
