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!

The town of Versailles (our home!) to explore the King’s Château, Bedroom, State Rooms, Hall of Mirrors & gardens, previously home to the most powerful family in the world for over a century!

Versailles Bike Tours FAQs

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.

We meet at a café in central Paris: Le Paris Montparnasse Café, 43 Avenue du Maine, 75014 Paris.

The café is across the road from Gare Montparnasse train station, which has excellent metro connections on lines 6, 12, 4 & 13. We recommend using the app CityMapper to best navigate the metro while you are in Paris, it is free to download & you can save journeys to use offline. Input the exact address to avoid any confusion – there are a few cafés with similar names! Do feel free to come earlier for a coffee & croissant to kick start your day.

Once in Versailles we saddle up on bikes that are stored at our base in Versailles.

Of course. All our tours of Versailles include a guided tour of the Palace with a fully licensed member of our team. We do not abandon you with an audio guide. We use earpieces so you can hear your guide, can ask questions & don’t miss a thing! If there is one Palace in the world to visit, this is the one!

We limit our group sizes to 12 riders per group in Versailles to keep you safe, cover more ground & offer a personalised experience.

Absolutely not, our bikes are located in Versailles. 

Yes, simply let us know in the notes section when you book and we will contact you with details of where and when to meet us in Versailles.

We provide all the essentials for your day in Versailles; all you need to remember is to pack your camera and some euros for your picnic lunch.

Yes, we include the inner gardens and fountain show as part of our tours. However, please note the fountains only turn on at set times, on set dates:

Every Saturday and Sunday from April 4th to November 1st 2020, and some exceptional dates (May 8th and 21st, July 14th 2020). 
-Every Tuesday from May 19th to June 23th 2020, and Friday April 10th 2020.

We still visit the inner gardens on days the fountains do not run as Versailles “was a garden before a castle, a feast before a garden, a night before a thousand suns. If you want to understand what Versailles, one must first walk through its gardens”.

No. All tickets, travel (including train tickets to and from Versailles), access to Versailles, the gardens, the Hamlet and the fountains are all included.
