Great trip to Versaille

Nickolas was a wonderful guide, took the chance to get to know everyone and had a wealth of knowledge. The only suggestion would be to perhaps start the palace a little earlier. By the time we got there, we were all exhausted.

Not sure it will fit the bike. But, why not if the seat is such ab important item for you. Honestly, for such an easy going tour i would not complicate things and carry my own seat. The one they offer is more than comfy.

There were about 14 in each group and they did split the families up. In our group the kids (ages 10, 12, 13) kept up better than some of the adults.
