Versailles Bike Tour with Palace & Queen Farm Entrance

1. Versailles Bike Tour with Palace & Queen Farm Entrance

Explore the 2,000-acre grounds of the Palace of Versailles on a full-day bike tour from Paris with a entry timed ticket, and discover the unrivaled opulence of the Sun King’s royal residence. Following your transfer from Paris, start the day at the farmer's market in the town of Versailles. Select the produce you want for a picnic lunch later in the day, choosing from the mounds of cheeses, fresh fruits, charcuterie, and more. Then, it’s time to cycle the landscaped grounds of the Palace, cruising effortlessly from one picturesque spot to another on lightweight aluminum bikes. Your guide will take you to the outhouse chateaux of the Petit and Grand Trianon, and show you Marie-Antoinette’s private village and farm. Pedal through sumptuous landscapes, ending with a look inside the Chateau of Versailles itself. Here, you will be given plenty of time to focus on what interests you most, explore at your leisure. Feel free to take a rapid tour in 30 minutes, or loiter for 3 hours to marvel at the Hall of Mirrors, Marie-Antoinette's bedroom, the King’s Royal chambers, and more. Learn about the life, legends, and scandals of the decadent Sun King (Louis XIV) and Marie Antoinette, and the resulting French Revolution that brought about the beheading of the French Royalty.

Our guide was Arturo and he was perfect. He provided great historical information and was incredibly kind. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, there’s a lot of walking! The bike was perfect because you’re able to see more of the grounds. We were exhausted and sore by the end but it was perfect.

Very nice tour! Well guided and explained! Comfortable train journey, diverse market. A short drive into the city of Versailles before entering the expansive gardens not otherwise seen. You arrive very late at the castle! But you can go straight to the entrance with the ticket!

Top tour! Absolute recommendation! Super nice people and everything was just right. An unforgettable experience. Thanks to the tour guide Thibaud! Gladly again sometime!

A unique and special way to discover the beauties of Versailles. I highly recommend!

Excellent guide. Fascinating to pedal through those historical places!!!
