A Recent Review of this tour

This was by far the BEST way to see Versailles. This is a full day tour! Suzanne was very personable and a wealth of information. She kept detailed notes of every room we walked through and was able to answer all our questions. It would have been impossible to see all we did if on foot. So glad we picked this tour. A picnic lunch along the canal, riding through the village, seeing M Antoinette's home: so much more than just a visit to the Palace. A must tour, if you like bike riding!
