This was our second tour by Susanne. We had another great day with her. She planned our entire day so we had some breaks and also a break to get a small snack, etc. She had her route planned on what we would see in the Gardens first so we could see the fountains running. We then went inside the palace and did a full tour with her. Susanne speaks excellent English and is also fluent in other languages. I would not hesitate to hire her again. Thank you Susanne for another excellent day.

Enjoyed our bike tour of Versailles with Susan. As it was a Saturday morning she was able to astutely guide us through the fountain gardens thereby maximizing our visit. Following the Gardens we hiked into town where Susan aided in our selection of cheeses, wine and bread for our leisurely picnic lunch near the lake. No trip to Versailles would be complete without a tour of the Palace. Susan was knowledgeable in the French history and monarchy. Very accommodating and friendly guide.

What an adventure we had on bicycles to Versailles, complete with trip to the market and a picnic on the canal. Susanne was attentive, able to move us quickly to the head of lines, knowledgeable and friendly. The dancing fountains and tour of the chateau were amazing and she provided so much information. The bicycles were in perfect condition. The day could not have been more perfect.

We had an amazing day with Susanne touring Versailles! Susanne struck just the right balance of history, culture and fun for our family of six--children ranging in ages from 10-17. She was flexible and accommodating! I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with Susanne.

Susanne was very good. Unfortunately, we went to Versailles on a day when Paris saw it's first rain in several weeks-at least the heat wave had broken! Susanne is very engaging, knows her history and her English speaking is very clear (I've had guides in the past in other cities that were difficult to understand). The best aspect for me of the tour was the use of bikes. They were ok for our purposes. Meeting Susanne at the bike store got us to another part of Paris we never would have seen. Great 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!

We have used TBL many times. Susanne is one of the most flexible and understanding guides I have ever booked. She will give as much or as little history detail as you wish as well as fun facts and answer any and all of your questions. Even looking it up on the internet if she doesn't know. Susanne will set the pace to meet yours and mix things up as you go if you like. If you get the chance to spend the day with her - do not miss the opportunity!

Fabulous! We are fast movers & hate crowds/long lines. We met Suzanne at a bike shop near Gaietie station, she guided us to the station and took the express to Versailles. We spent most of the day biking and walking through the gardens & village of Versailles. Lucky for us the fountains were on. We also saw the grounds and House of Marie Antoinette. Then we had late pm tickets to enter Versailles. Suzanne would have been happy to spend more time but we cuiused through. She is knowledgeable and delightful.

Susanne was excellent. She met us at our hotel and proceeded to lead us on a tour of the palace and city. Very knowledgeable. We had a wonderful experience. When we return to Paris we will be using her again.

We adored Susanne. She was informative and intelligent. And of course, so open and friendly. It was like we were touring with a friend (with a love of history). We spoke about books we'd read and movies we'd seen—all relating to Versailles. I'm so grateful for her time, care and beautiful personality. The friend I was with has been known to expect the best of everything, said, "The bicycle tour was the high point of our visit to the Paris area." Lastly, her English was excellent. And the bikes—the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Scott! I adored you and Jon too:) It was a very special and inspiring day and I have beautiful memories of it! This tour is one of my favourites and I hope I can give a lot of other people a good time there in the future! All the best, keep in touch!

I highly recommend the bike tour with Susanne as it gave us an opportunity to see all of Versailles including the gardens, Marie Antoinette's getaway, and the house. We stopped at a local market and bought food for a picnic lunch, which we had in the gardens. Susanne did an excellent job of explaining the estate in historical context and its place in the life of the Sun King as well as the French Revolution. This was a great tour, and a fantastic way to see Versailles.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup Tom and Vicky for the fantastic two days in Paris and Versailles. Biking with you was a blast:) I hope to see you again and thank you for the picture!! I'll keep you posted:) Cheers!
