Full description
Before meeting your guide at 8:45 AM at Le Peloton Café in Paris, take time to grab a craft coffee or delectable waffle to start you off. After meeting your enthusiastic guide and the rest of your group members at the café, you'll take the train together to Versailles.

Upon arrival, the first stop will be at the Versailles farmer's market, one of the best in France. Get all the best recommendations on what to buy from your guide, and sweet talk the vendors for some delicious food. After the market, you'll ride into the amazing royal grounds and experience the legendary gardens of Versailles. Walk through the often-missed peasant village created for Marie Antoinette, and the Petit Trianon, which was her personal castle and residence.

Stop next for a picnic through the gardens along the Grand Canal. Set your bike aside and sit in the grass to enjoy the view of the swans and castle. You'll later have free time to explore the Palace of Versailles at your own pace with an audio guide before returning to Paris by train.
