Stu and Niki were phenomenal. They were welcoming, organized, and knowledgeable. They were able to smoothly adapt the tour to changing situations. Extremely well versed in the subject matter and super easy to work with. I would strongly recommend Stu and Niki for anything!
We have been to Versailles a few times but never like this before. The bike tour exceeded our expectations and we saw sights we would never have even known about if it weren’t for Nikki and Stu! We highley recommend booking with Boutique Bike Tours!
This tour was the highlight of my first trip to Paris. Stu is a Versailles native, and he shares the many layers of the chateaux and grounds from a local's perspective. This allows the group to avoid the multi-hour lines and spend more time enjoying the property. At the market, Stu will point you in the direction of a fromagerie and wine merchant that will let you taste before buying, but then he gives you time to explore on your own to acquire what you would like for the picnic on Louis XIV's canal. Stu is an engaging storyteller. His knowledge of the rise and fall of France during Louis XIV - Louis XVI's reign and his ability to connect it to what was happening in the US and the rest of Europe at that time as well as today were exceptional.
