What To Expect

Meet your guide in the center of the city and take off through the evening-lit streets. The ride is designed for all fitness levels, so you can relax while sightseeing. There are regular stops along the way for photo-ops, though please note that the night bike tour involves a bit more riding and slightly less narration.

Pass Notre Dame, one of the world's most famous cathedrals. Learn about its history, the purpose of the flying buttresses and how the city of Paris began on this little island. Ride through the back courtyard of the Louvre, home to some of the best-known art in the world, and stop for ice cream (own expense) at the famous Berthillon. Choose from more than 20 flavors, and pause to eat on the bridge between the Ile St. Louis and Ile de la Cite as you listen to anecdotes about Paris' early history. You also cruise past the beautiful St. Chapelle church, the Latin Quarter, the Pont des Arts, the Academie Francaise, Princess Di's flame and much more.

Then hop aboard your Seine River cruise to see the iconic Eiffel Tower from the unique vantage point of the water. Your cruise also includes complimentary French wine to sip as you admire the scenery.

After a full evening of sightseeing, your tour concludes at its original departure point.

Awesome way to check out the city
Tien_P, Nov 2022
Mando was very nice and informative. Little cold but the ride is very scenic and enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Great outing!
Mary_P, Nov 2022
Chai was a great guide. He made it fun and was informative as well. He engaged the group and gave very clear directions on how to ride in the Paris traffic. We also loved the views from the boat ride. It was a great outing.
Wonderful experience
Auran_B, Nov 2022
It was a really good four hours spent with an hour of it being on the cruise. The guide was informative and entertaining.
Read the description carefully. I’d do a daytime tour instead.
Winifred_S, Oct 2022
Very nice tour guide. Kindly waited for us when we got lost. Paris is beautiful at night! But it’s also peak drive/bike traffic volume, and the trip felt hairy at times. Not leisurely in parts. Be sure to read the description carefully. Very few stops on the night tour. Very little commentary/ history. I was not misled, I just did not pay enough attention to the description. Boat ride is lovely & wine good! I’d do a daytime tour instead to get more stops/info.
Breathtaking view
Shawn_H, Oct 2022
This was the most amazing night. Truly a highlight of our trip. It’s for all levels of fitness. The guide was accommodating and friendly.
Awesome experience!
Lindsay_K, Sept 2022
Mara was a fantastic guide! She was funny, considerate, and knowledgeable. Biking around is such a great way to see the city - I highly recommend this for your first day to get acquainted with Paris. We got a special treat on our boat tour at the end - the Eiffel Tower lit up and sparkled and we were right next to it! 10/10!
City of lights via bike
Kristin_W, Sept 2022
Fun way to see the city of lights. We passed most of the famous spots in the city (the eiffel towel, the louvre, notre dame, sainte chapelle, pont de arts, obelisque de Louxor, plus more). My favorite part was biking through the center of the louvre when it was all lit up. Truly breathtaking! Chai (our tour guide) was very knowledgeable of the city, very entertaining and an excellent navigator through the streets of Paris! My only regret is not doing this tour at the start of our trip because it’s would have been a great overview of the city.
Amazing! We had a 6:30 pm...
Julia_O, Aug 2022
Amazing! We had a 6:30 pm tour with kids aged 6, 9, 11. Kids and adults loved it! Alison, our tour guide, was phenomenal: professional, knowledgeable, helpful!
Great way to see Paris
Christine_G, Aug 2022
Great way for my daughter and I to start our Paris trip. Beautiful sights, great tour guide. Only surprise for me was the level of difficulty but I’m a novice bike rider and accidentally switched to 1st gear so it was hard for me to catch up. Once I switched back to second was easier but you have to be in decent shape for this…and maybe not horribly jet lagged. :)
Awesome experience
Laura_B, July 2022
Night lights on Eiffel Tower Boat tour Biking throughout city gave us a chance to get oriented. Bikes were in need of more maintenance a few kept breaking down, luckily Tessa was able to fix in a speedy manner and kept us on track!!
Perfect way to see all the sights
Conor_C, July 2022
Excellent way to see the city. You pass through neighbourhoods and streets that you would never know existed. I would recommend taking this tour early in your trip as you can then return to some spots you'd like to explore more
Alison was an incredible...
Brandyn_R, July 2022
Alison was an incredible tour guide. She showed us a great time around the city that we won’t forget.
Wonderful Experience.
Dani_W, July 2022
Riding together as a family and seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle at 11pm. Our guide was friendly and easy to relate to.
Fantastic experience exploring Paris in the evening
Sirisha_B, July 2022
We absolutely loved the biking experience. Saw all the monuments up-close. I wish there was stops for photos. The ride on the Seine river in the evening was fantastic experience! One thing to note is you should have a good meal before you go, there are no stops to buy dinner and tour ends pretty late.
Highly recommended - for parts of Paris you may miss
Jodie_L, July 2022
Loved this trip- Alyson from Carolina was amazing! She was a great guide- felt safe riding round this beautiful and busy city on our bikes at night- saw parts of Paris we would have never seen on our own and loved her stories ! Nothing was too much trouble for her- great boat trip included on Seine for some fab pics of the Eiffel Tower lit up and sparkling- thank you Fat Tire Tours and Alyson our guide
A must do
Geneva_A, July 2022
Miliana (Mia) was a vibrant, knowledgeable guide. The pace was not too slow, but not too fast and she made sure everyone stayed together and safe. Highly recommend taking the tour with her.
Gréât expérience !
Joel_P, July 2022
Mia did a fantastic job! I appreciated her concern for the participants safety! Our boat ride was the best!
Loved, loved, loved seeing Paris via bike!
Christina_H, July 2022
This tour was an absolute blast! Tess was so knowledgeable and so much fun - she engaged the oldest and the youngest members of the tour! We felt so fortunate to arrive right on time, so as the tours went out, our group was the smallest (those who arrived early ended up in groups of 16, where as the ‘leftovers’ [ie, the last group] was only 9. Super fun time!
Absolutely worth it for a night out
Kristina_Z, July 2022
Our tour guide John made sure everyone felt safe, included and that we were having fun. Beautiful scenery, obviously.
Better than expected!
Delia_F, June 2022
Booked to get my bearings of the city as wanted to make the most out of our time here! Felt like a parisan!
