What people are saying about Gallery of Coaches

Considering the hustle to get the metro+train to the place, the GYG option is quite useful and time saving. Everyone on the GYG staff was excellent, extremely helpful and friendly. Use this tour to get to the place if you don't have your own transportation, but bear in mind that you will need to spend more on premises - the electric vehicles for rent are a fun way to get around, but they are costly.

The E-bike tour was a fantastic way to get to experience the grounds and surrounding area of Versailles. I feel that this method of exploration was more intimate than others would have been.

Enjoyed the trip Lots to see Not having a guided tour gave us a lot of flexibility to spend time as we liked Get ready to walk a lot - we walked over 23,000 steps in 1 day

Very enjoyable bike ride. the e- bikes are wonderful especially when getting tired towards late in the day. Renault is an amazing guide, highly recommend.

Great experience! Definitely recommend the Versailles tour with transportation. Makes it so much more convenient.
