Escape the crowds and discover the ultimate way to experience Versailles.
Biking is the best way to experience all of Versailles in one day, and we’ll make your bike tour experience stress-free, interactive and a lot of fun. Most other Versailles tours only see a fraction of what we’ll see during our bike tour through the legendary town & gardens of Versailles…
We’ve organized an unforgettable day trip from Paris- cruising through the town of Versailles, to the amazing local food market, and into Versailles’ royal grounds & gardens. You’ll enjoy your French picnic by the Grand Canal and a time to mix & mingle with other travellers. We’ll then pedal on to explore Marie Antoinette’s village together- before we make our way to the legendary chateau. You’ll then have plenty of free time to explore the famous palace at your own pace.
Our tour is not about stuffy history lessons & boring lectures. It’s about hearing all the fun stories and quirky anecdotes. It’s about escaping the bustling city for a day of cheese, wine, Marie Antoinette, tree-lined gardens, instagram moments:-), and a fantastic day in the French countryside.
- Town of Versailles
We’ll bike down the small streets and charming areas of this beautiful town.
- The Versailles open air food market
We’ll stop here to buy supplies for our picnic lunch in the gardens. Baguettes, cheese, pastries, wine and more available (not included in tour price).
- Versailles’ royal grounds, gardens & grand canal
We’ll spend our day biking in the old royal forest, by the famous canal, and along tree-lined paths- where France’s royalty once walked.
- Marie Antoinette’s Village & Farm
We’ll get a rare look inside the village the queen designed in Versailles’ forest- to indulge herself & escape the pressure of the chateau. This is where, legend has it, she dyed her sheep pink!

Used as summer houses for the royalty, we’ll pass by these two beautiful mini-chateau’s in the Versailles forest. Marie Antoinette, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Charles de Gaulle all spent time here.
