What to expect
Why walk with the crowds & stand in line when you can bike, brunch & skip the line?
Why walk with the crowds & stand in line when you can bike, brunch & skip the line? Designed with the efficient traveller in mind, join us to ride, taste & hear the scandalous tales of the French Royal Family on this truly memorable trip. We take the train to Versailles where we are licensed to guide inside and Skip the infamous Line to explore the Château & iconic Hall of Mirrors. We ride through the town & breath-taking Royal Grounds.
The stunning 2,000 acres of Versailles are far larger than most expect. You can save your feet, escape the crowds & discover secret places seen by few tourists & unknown to Parisians. Our bikes enable us to access places others cannot, the ride is leisurely, far from the Tour de France!
Having worked up an appetite we lay out our French picnic brunch by the Grand Canal. In France we take picnics very seriously: great company, baguettes, wine, cheese, local charcuterie, we will share with you our favorites. Be prepared to taste local food & picnic like a royal in the sun! If you are looking for a unique experience, out of the city, away from hoards of tourists, & want to make the most of your time in Versailles- look no further than this trip!
