What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Paris and embark on a journey to Versailles: included round-trip train tickets make it easy to travel on the RER. Upon arrival in Versailles, pick up your bicycle and other equipment, and set off on an in-depth tour. Begin at a bustling village market, where you can pick up a baguette, cheeses, and other traditional French nibbles (own expense) for lunch. Before you eat, work up an appetite biking around the palace’s sprawling grounds. See the Grand and Petit Trianons, visit Marie Antoinette’s Hameau, and discover other corners that on-foot visitors would miss. After your ride, enjoy your picnic lunch next to the Grand Canal. The tour continues with guaranteed entrance to the palace. With an audio tour accompaniment, explore the Hall of Mirrors, King’s State Apartments, and King’s Chapel at your own pace, and learn more about Versailles’ (literally) rich history. Your day in Versailles ends when you board an RER train bound for Paris.

We loved this experience with Fat Tire Tours! Versailles could be overwhelming; we were very happy to have a guide showing us around and making sure we saw everything without wasting time or getting lost. Sadie, our guide, was wonderful. She was patient, fun, and helpful.

Our tour was great. The guide was early as we were at the meeting place and was clearly identifiable. She was helpful in choosing our picnic lunches and a knowledgeable guide for the grounds. This tour allows to see much more of the grounds than one can see in a typical visit

This was the best way to see all of Versailles with two boys. Our kids are 8&9 and they had a blast. Johnny made it just as much fun for them while giving all of us lessons of French history. The summary states it’s 10 miles of bike riding, but it was easy riding as most of it
