Beyond amazing service
, Sep 2021
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!
, Aug 2021
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!
, Aug 2021
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
, Jul 2021
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!
, Jul 2021
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.

This tour was the highlight of my first trip to Paris. Stu is a Versailles native, and he shares the many layers of the chateaux and grounds from a local's perspective. This allows the group to avoid the multi-hour lines and spend more time enjoying the property. At the market, Stu will point you in the direction of a fromagerie and wine merchant that will let you taste before buying, but then he gives you time to explore on your own to acquire what you would like for the picnic on Louis XIV's canal. Stu is an engaging storyteller. His knowledge of the rise and fall of France during Louis XIV - Louis XVI's reign and his ability to connect it to what was happening in the US and the rest of Europe at that time as well as today were exceptional.
