Our guides love a challenge, and we have many secrets up our sleeve to make a rainy day as memorable and fun as a sunny day in Versailles. We have classy jackets to keep you dry, and know all the secret spots to take shelter in.

It is almost as if Versailles was designed with our bike tour in mind. The majority of our ride takes place within the Royal Gardens, where we can enjoy stress-free cycling, far from the traffic and crowds. Outside of the gardens, cycle paths weave their way throughout the town and are set on the footpaths, away from traffic.

Yes! To provide guided visits inside a museum or historical monument in France guides are required to hold a professional license of Guide-Conférencier. At Boutique Tours we are French State registered and accredited professional guides and hold the Carte Professionnelle. Therefore your guide is allowed to guide you both around the grounds and inside the sites! We do not hire unqualified guides. Keep in mind if you book a tour in which your guide will be leading you outside the grounds only, not inside the monument, they are most likely unqualified!

Our fleet of BMX bikes ensure that children from the age of 7 can easily keep up on our tour. Our guide has a unique talent for presenting the tour in a way that entertains and captivates all ages, and a day out in Versailles with Boutique Tours offers the perfect mix of family fun and French history. For those too small to reach the pedals, we have child seats available for use, free of charge. Simply let us know when you book, and we will have one ready for you on the day.
