The breath-taking Royal Grounds are an expansive 2,000 acres! Our bikes are super comfortable and easy to ride, so you can cover more ground & see what most travellers miss. Our bikes are located in Versailles, so you won’t have to worry about wrestling them on and off the train.
Versailles has a way of capturing the hearts of all who visit. We love it so much that we moved here. We hope you’ll love it too.
We take the train to Versailles, then hop on bikes to explore the beautiful town & our favorite food market. Every stall of this quaint and quintessentially French marché tempts, with its fresh-baked pastries, crêpe stands, organic produce, cheese and wines - the things that we all love the most about France!
The rest of the morning is spent exploring the inner Royal Grounds, Gardens, Fountains, inside Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet and the Trianons, with a few hidden secrets along the way.
Having worked up an appetite we then lay out our authentic French picnic lunch by the Grand Canal, overlooking the spectacular Château.
Post picnic we skip the infamous line at the Château to explore the State Rooms, King's bedroom & famous Hall of Mirrors. Our guides are licensed & therefore able to accompany you inside the Palace.
At the end of the day we leave you with plenty of travel tips and Parisian insider secrets to fuel the rest of your holiday.
If you are looking for a unique experience, out of the city, away from hoards of tourists, and want to make the most of your time in Versailles - look no further than this day trip!
