Versailles Bike Tour with Skip-the-Line Entrance to Palace
From US$91.75
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.

Formidable!

Our guide Cecilia did a great job in telling us all about the kings Louis XIV- XVI, their wives and mistresses. And I really liked the funnny details! She is a “formidable” story teller!

Great time!

My husband and I very much enjoyed our day bike tour with Cecelia! Even though I’m not a huge fan of biking, everything was timed well with multiple stops for exploring and hearing some history. The picnic lunch was fun as well. Highly recommend.

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.
