a UNESCO World Heritage site

Stop At: Palace of Versailles, Place d'Armes, 78000, Versailles France

Stop periodically to hear about the history of King Louis XIV, whose lavish, over-the-top fantasies led him to commission this grand estate as his palatial retreat in the 17th century. Pause in front of the majestic Palace of Versailles to take photos and admire its grandeur.

It turned out to be a great activity, but I would suggest that people put "Grand Canal" into their phone destinations to find the meeting location. It took us 30 minutes to walk to this location from where the uber dropped us off and we missed the tour! Arthur was amazing and gave us a personal tour instead a little later in the day. The tour is for the external gardens and was very fun. We ended up renting a golf cart for about 35 euro to see the formal gardens so we felt like we saw alot that day.

I absolutely loved this! By far my favourite activity in Paris!!!

I had been to Versailles before but never explored the gardens. The segway tour does not go through the formal gardens but rather the park further back. We went on the weekend and had to pay a separate fee to enter the gardens but the whole thing was so worth it! The formal gardens are amazing and since it was the weekend the fountains were on. It was spectacular. The segway portion was an area we never would have visited but added so much to the experience and our guide shared lots of information about Versaille and its residents!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Great value for the money. Wonderful way of seeing the large garden areas, and it was nice to be envied by others as we zoomed past them -: Great guide and friendly.

This is the best way to get around Versailles Gardens. It was easy to learn and so much fun! Our guides were also amazing and made it so interesting. Highly recommend this!!

This was a nice break from museums where you jockey for view of masterpieces. Whizzing about with the wind through your hair allows you to cover a great distance of the Versailles gardens. Our guide was great- engaging and knowledgeable. One piece of advice is to get to the grounds an hour before the tour is supposed to start-- getting to the Segway start point takes quite a while, especially if it is a first visit to Versailles.
• Submitted 05 Jul 2016
With a garden of this size, this is one of the few ways to see as much as possible in 2 hours. To effortlessly glide along the long Boulevards was a true delight.

Our guide was extremely nice and fun to have the tour with in all aspects. He was informative, helpful, friendly and made the segway tour so worth it. This tour is a must.

A fantastic addition to our day at Versailles. A perfect way to encourage a 12 year old around the park though I have to say the adults loved it too. A lovely guide who added some colour to our tour. You see the Trianons and farm from the outside but can go in after the Segway tour if you want. A real highlight and the fun balanced out a wonderful but solidly cultural experience in the palace in the morning.

This was a lovely tour. It was nice to be out and about on the segway in the Versailles Gardens.

Excellent tour. Our guide was fantastic. Very informative and friendly. Patient with my children who were on a Segway for the first time. We learned so much about the palace and gardens. Don't miss Marie Antoinette's Hamlet! A must see. The whole family agreed that this was the highlight of our trip to Paris.
