The French capital is widely considered among the prettiest cities in Europe and a bike tour of Paris is a wonderful way to take in the top attractions in a fun and engaging way.

Brillant way to see Paris
Joanne_M, Jan 2023
This was a great way to see Paris. We had three teenagers with us so they really engaged with the tour guide.
Best tour in Paris
Beth_W, Jan 2023
This tour was the best thing we did in Paris! We learned so much history, and saw almost every major site. Dave was an amazing guide. Highly recommend.
Informative, fun way to see the city.
Rachel_S, Dec 2022
We had a great time on the bike tour. Nick our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour great fun. I would definitely recommend.
Beautiful way to site see!

Must do! Paris is such a lovely city, and even more when you’re on a bike! Recommend this every time!
Must do...
Hina_T, Nov 2022
It was a bright sunny day and Nick was our trip lead who was kind, knowledgeable and had superb group leading skills. The selection of neighbourhoods and points covered can't be better and it's impossible to see so much of Paris just by walking. What scenic beauty, I felt like I am living my dream, it was that good. I was solo and Nick was kind enough to click the pics. 4 hours of cycling can be strenuous for some and you need to keep up with the traffic although the separate bicycle lanes made it easy to roam around. Must do activity.
Great fun with tour guide Dave in Paris
Job_S, Oct 2022
The tour was great fun, with a wonderfully enthusiastic tour guide. Still it would’ve been even better if the group was a bit smaller.
Perfect way to see the outdoor sights of Paris
Jessica_S, Oct 2022
This is a top-notch tour. The fun and knowledgeable guide (Aaron) gave excellent practical advice on riding at every street crossing and helped the nervous riders feel much more confident. Streets of Paris are crazy and it takes know how to keep a group together. The sights were amazing, of course. Lunch stop was fast and easy. I recommend the Gallettes, which are fast and gluten free (yay). We rode about 5-8 minutes between stops. Not an overly physically demanding tour.

Our tour guide, Tess, excellent. Very fun and informative. She made this tour a fun. Very attentive and super helpful
We’ll done tour, we’ll trained and fun guide!
Shane_D, Sept 2022
Our tour guide Mara was fantastic. She kept things easy going and kept us all together, probably much harder than it looked, and she was a fantastic guide. Biking is such a fun way to see Paris.
Fun, knowledgeable, and entertaining bike tour.
Chava_K, Sept 2022
JF was an unbelievable tour guide. His ability to story tell and read the group was phenomenal. His knowledge truly brought the city to life in fun and relevant way. My friend was also hesitant to do the tour because she’s less confident on a bike but he explained every step of the tour and how to ride on the Parisian roads. This was truly one of the highlights of our week long trip to Paris.
Aaron was our guide and...
Mark_S, Sept 2022
Aaron was our guide and he did a masterful job. I felt very safe negotiating traffic and his knowledge of history was extraordinary. I’m very thankful that we took him as a private guide rather than the big crowd
Loved it!!!!
Patricia_B, Aug 2022
Amazing tour learned so much about Paris! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable about the history!
Engaging, informative and safe - Easy Rider!
MAURICE_T, Aug 2022
The guide was very engaging, informative and fun to listen to. Her clear instructions kept us safe on the road. We learned a lot. The easy pace was appropriate for both kids and older adults. The only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a bit more time at each stop for photo opportunities.
Excellent experience and...
Leo_M, Aug 2022
Excellent experience and very good and thoughtful guide in Clara. I would highly recommend this to get to know Paris intimately.
Sightseeing, biking and basking in the sun
Jessica_E, Aug 2022
We signed up our group of 8 for this tour and everyone had the best time! Matt was our guide and his knowledge of Parisian history was incredible and he made the tour really fun. A few of our guests were nervous because they hadn’t been on bikes in years but they felt like it was approachable, not overly difficult and we weren’t in traffic much so it felt safe. We got to see so many sights in such a short amount of time. It’s also a great way to burn off those croissant calories and get a tan while seeing Paris!
With Aaron in Paris - Great Time!
Michael_K, Aug 2022
By bike through Paris - what a wonderful event! With our Guide Aaron a pleasure - listening to his stories, trying to follow him through the traffic; the four hours flew by ... Thank you Aaron!
Amazing afternoon!

Really nice biking tour
Nicole_W, July 2022
Our guide Veronica was so really kind. Perfect how she manages to keep everybody interested with her stories. Kind and lovely person who really knows where to cycle in Paris. Great!
Great guided bike ride in Paris
Ian_H, July 2022
Great guided tour to take in the main historic sites of Paris. Our guide was very informative and helpful. The bikes were easy to use and the route was very flat so ok for any level of fitness. Would highly recommend.
Poorly Organized
Scott_R, July 2022
There was over an hour of “break” and bathroom stop in this 3 hour and 15 min bike tour. It’s poorly organized. Eliza was pleasant and informative.
