Versailles Magic
Jennifer_N

Alice was extremely knowledgeable, fun, and just all around lovely. We could not have asked for a better experience, and the trip and tour exceeded our expectations. Would recommend to anyone except those with mobility issues due to the nature of the old cobblestone paths.

I recommended Boutique Bike Tour!

The BBT might be a little more expensive, it was worth it. The entire Versailles experience was very memorable, thanks to a great guide Nico. Mentioned by other reviews as well. He is helpful, funny and friendly and he made the French history easy to understand and be appreciated. What could be improved on would be the bike seats, it’s hard and uncomfortable after a while.

Bonjour Sharon, Thank you for your lovely review and recommending our tours - we are delighted to hear your day in Versailles was so memorable! We are happy to hear you agree that Nico is a fantastic guide and that the slightly higher price is worth it. The reason for this is that we are the only bike tour in Versailles where our guides are professional licensed guides - this means that they can guide you throughout all of Versailles including inside the Château, as well as skipping the lines using a separate dedicated guide’s entrance. Finally, we believe another big difference is our group size, which is a maximum of 12 guests, rather than 15-25. Thank you for your feedback on the bike seat which is useful to us, we are actually now in the process of replacing our current seats with comfort saddles for full comfort - a good excuse to join us again back in Paris in the future! We hope to see you in Paris again and do not hesitate to reach out for any assistance when planning your next trip to Europe. À bientôt, Boutique Bike Tours

The team that runs this tour is hands down, the best group. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, personable, and truly love the job they do. I experienced an air bnb crisis in the middle of the tour and the team worked with me and my bnb host to resolve the issue, provided me with multiple options, and I was able to return to the tour! Lola, Stu, and Nikki are the best and when I return to Paris, I will look for more of their tours!!

Best tour ever!

The best tour if you want a complete day at Palace of Versailles, having fun with the bikes, a lot of pertinent information. The guides are a great couple, very organized, excellent attitude. We didn't have to pass through any lines, they know the exact times for avoiding heavily touristy "time zones", but still get to see everything in the palace. And the cherry on top... the picnic, with a great view of the Palace. Definitively recommended.

An experience of a lifetime!

I don't even know where to begin… what a wonderful, magical, fun, lifetime experience. We are not ones that normally venture out and do "Group activities" or tours with groups. However, we were traveling with some friends and decided this could be "interesting.".... Humbly reminded every day that we know nothing!!!! This was more than interesting… We are so grateful to have the wonderful tour guide that we had. She was passionate and filled with such a beautiful life! Her personality was infectious. It was an honor to share space with her on this 10-hour tour! Yes, we worked for this experience… But it was worth every second! We will never forget the store. Thank you so much for the experience!

Memorable day in Versailles

Niki and Stu are super fun and organized and tech have the tour down to a science. Stu has extensive knowledge of French history and we leaned so much. Biking around the town of Versailles was fun! You feel like the locals shopping at the market for the picnic. Biking is a great way to cover the garden of Versailles as it is huge! What a nice day it was and it will be one of the best memorable days we spent in France!

Outstanding tour!

This was one of our trip highlights! This tour was so well organized! Niki and Stu were very engaging, friendly and professional. We enjoyed the whole thing. Biking was phenomenal, an easy way to cover a lot of ground, and there is a lot of ground to cover at versailles! The tour of the Chateau and the grounds was interesting. Stu covered an abundance of Information while keeping us all involved and interested. We traveled with a large family group ranging in age from 13-54. There were enough breaks planned in for food, bathrooms and hot people. The tour was flexible to meet our needs. The biking was refreshing, the market for lunch offered delicious choices, Versailles itself is amazing. We came away feeling like we had a greater appreciation for the history and people who created this masterpiece . We would definitely recommend this tour.
