Great time despite bad weather. Great guide in Fiona with great commentary. I didn't realize the tour was legit biking which we discovered quickly. Fiona was great at making sure the inexperienced bikers in the group were comfortable. But this was a little more physically involved than I initially expected. Totally worth it though - amazing day.

Loved this tour, even though it poured all day! Marie was guide and she was amazing! It was a good mix of biking, sight seeing, and also got to visit the town where it was the farmers market that day and it was incredible! Highly recommend!

This is an excellent tour. Our guide, Fiona, was outstanding!! Very knowledgeable and kind. Cycling is a great way to see more of the palace grounds and town. The 10 person group was the perfect size. Highly recommended!

This was the best possible way for me to visit the palace and surrounding are. Simon was so friendly and knowledgeable it was a genuine pleasure to be with him. I highly recommend this trip!

My daughter and I had wonderful time! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Versailles was exquisite and the bike ride was not too strenuous:) I would highly recommend it!
