Kingtours has designed the perfect Versailles Tour with a combination of Golcarts and Bikes which is the best possible way to discover the huge 2000 acres Royal Domain !
Our fun & knowledgeable local guides will definitely make your day @Versailles very special.
We are doing a big loop inside the 2000 acres grounds of Versailles and our itinerary was elaborated so that we don’t pass twice by the same route.
Our journey begins at 9:30AM in front of the main entrance of the Palace, at the foot of the majestic golden Grille Royale.
We will first head towards the south parterre, where our rides (golf carts) will be waiting for us. Golfcarts are the perfect way to travel through the amazing formal gardens and discover all the wonderful hiddens Groves created by the brilliant André Le Nôtre. Sit back and relax or take the wheel and enjoy the beauty of formal French Gardens while our guide tells you all about them !
After our journey through the groves we’ll arrive at the Petite Venise, next to the Grand Canal. We will then trade our carts for bikes and pedal along the Grand Canal and through the Royal Forest to reach The Petit Trianon. There, we will park the bikes and, after receiving some amazing historical informations about the place, you will enjoy free time to discover the rustic retreat built for Marie Antoinette, inspired by traditional architecture of rural Normandy.
It will then be time for our picnic lunch break. Relax and sip some wine while our guide shares fun facts about French Royalty.
Once we have regained our strength, we will cycle to the Grand Trianon and after hearing more fascinating stories about Louis XIV and his mistresses Madame de Montespan, you will explore by your own this amazing pink marble palace.
We will then head to the Neptune fountain where we will drop our bikes and make our way back to the Palace on foot, crossing through more amazing groves and fountains.
It will time to access the Palace, when it is less crowed, with a skip the line ticket. From there you will be able to explore by yourself, at your own pace, the royal residence of French Monarchy and it’s most iconic room : the magnificent Hall of Mirrors.
