We had a great day doing a bike tour with our guide Rachel.
Lyna_D, Mar 2023
We had a great day doing a bike tour with our guide Rachel. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Paris and knew all the fun facts. She really made the day fun! Additionally, viewing more of the grounds than can be walked in a day, was much more interesting.
Very disappointing bike tour
Eleanor_S, Mar 2023
It was a very disappointing bike tour. It says 3 to 3.5 hrs tour but it was only 1.5 hr plus 30 minute break and a waste of money. We started late because some ppl showed up late, which was fine but tour guide was an American not a local French person. He wasn’t knowledgeable at all and barely stopped to explain things.
Pedaling through Paris!

Excellent tour

My wife and I had a tour with Mona who was a great host. She was very engaged and excited about the city. She was very informative and fun at the same time. I'd highly recommend!
Learned a lot and not too difficult a cycle
Robert_M, Feb 2023
Learned about Paris history and I had no idea that there was a Roman amphitheatre in Paris. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about history
A wonderful experience
Len_S, Feb 2023
A delightful way to see parts of Paris up close and personal. The bike riding was all on level ground and in easy spurts so it didn't detract from being able to see and enjoy the sights. Rachel, our guide, was not only informative and helpful but kept us safe in the bustling traffic. Highly recommend to anyone who appreciates the joys and intimacies of exploring by bike
Joseph_S, Jan 2023
Such a fun way to see Paris. Although he claimed that he was "not a fan," Simon showed us Emily in Paris filming locations during the tour. The bikes were easy to ride and your route is not dangerous. You're in good hands.
Perfect way to see Paris

Such a fun and informative tour of Paris. Marley was a stupendously good tour guide, very warm and friendly and offered lots of extra tips!
The group was the perfect...
Jennifer_A, Nov 2022
The group was the perfect size! I’m not sure if anything could’ve been improved. Even the weather cooperated! We had Simon as our substitute tour guide and he was fantastic. The perfect blend of wit, knowledge and a wee bit cheeky!
Great time.

Riding with Marley - Super Fun!
Mario_S, Nov 2022
It was a super fun biking tour. Our tour guide Marley has demonstrated her great knowledge with all the attractions in an extremely vivid and interesting way. She was also very considerate along the journey in looking after every participants. The bike was also in a very good condition and stylish as well. The whole experience has given me a memorable half day journey, as a Parisian:). Highly recommend to join!
Great way to see some parts of paris
Yvonne_C, Nov 2022
This is a really fun engaging way to see around paris, its easy physically, mostly flat and plenty of informative stops. Our tour guide was Marley, she was extremely charming, witty and knowledgeable. Thanks Marley
Sandra_S, Nov 2022
I enjoyed my tour with Marley, she had great stories both personal and historical that were entertaining. The tour was chill and it was a nice overview of the city. You will enjoy it!!
A fabulous bike tour for any ability
Lisa_K, Nov 2022
A fabulous experience to immerse oneself into Paris. We are a family with a 12 and year old. Marley was our guide who was excellent with vibrant character, commanding voice and really interesting stories and locations across Paris. The stories and knowledge that Marley imparted really enhanced our stay and understanding of Paris. The biking was easy, although the traffic and other bikers need to be watched! I would say this experience was the highlight of our 3-day trip. I would definitely recommend this bike tour.
Florence_W, Nov 2022
Good trip had fun . I would do it again . Our guide was very knowledgeable about our area. She was a pleasure to travel with.
Great Experience. Received some history of the area, and got a feel for the city.
Michael_A, Nov 2022
Would recommend this tour for the beginning of your trip. Gives you a good feel for the city. Also helps you to understand how to ride a bike in Paris traffic, should you want to rent bikes during your trip.
Fantastic experience
Donna_M, Oct 2022
It was a great bike tour. Haily was very informative and great personality. I would definitely use your company again.
Beware … book directly .. not through Viator

Poor communication by Victor … foreign speaking clerk … ultimately led to poor directions .. cab unable to find unmarked street for meeting .. no refund of monies
