Private Versailles Tour

Private Versailles Food & Palace Bike Tour

Experience Versailles at your own pace, in your own style and with only your favorite people. On our Private Versailles Tour, we curate the perfect day for you. As the saying goes, start as you mean to go on, and the day begins at your Paris accommodation so that you can sit back and enjoy. Let us take the lead and show you the very best of Versailles.

Perfectly Crafted for You

The Private Versailles Tour is all about you, and just as no two people are the same, we believe no two tours should be the same. Travelling with children? Claiming our title of 'better than Disneyland' we guarantee fun, laughter and a full day of entertainment for your family. Planning a romantic day for two? While the story of Versailles is a tragedy, there is no denying the romance of French history, gardens, cycling, wine & cheese. And as hopeless romantics, we may have arranged a proposal or two... Hen's do, family gatherings, college reunions, a getaway with friends, we will customize an unforgettable day just for you.

Private Versailles Tour 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.

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!

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.
