We loved our bike tour of the Latin Quarter & Le Marais. Our guide Thiebault was fantastic & a lot of fun to tour around with. The bike ride was safe & easy & we covered a lot of ground. We loved riding around medieval lanes & seeing St. Suplice church & many other fabulous spots. Our whole family said it was a highlight of our trip to Paris.

Terrific tour. I would highly recommend it. Gabriel our tour guid was excellent. If you want to see the Latin quarter using some back streets, this is the tour for you.
Very personable tour guide on a very interesting tour
Rod_C, Oct 2022
Vanessa was professional but still down to earth and made Each of us feel comfortable. She was very personable and I commend her for being such a fount of knowledge on all the sites we visited. The Tour itself was fulfilling for me, seeing sites that I would have never known about and finding out things about French history. The pace was very relaxed and nobody was left behind. It was also a very safe and scenic route, taking us through beautiful inside streets in the Latin Quarter and Les Marais. We truly enjoyed it and would recommend first timers in Paris take it. She even gave us a map afterwards that helped guide us for the rest of the day as we toured more of the city. Thanks so much, Vanessa!

Elizabeth_S, July 2022
Wonderful experience! Thank you, Ben! By far our favorite activity in Paris! Easy ride, even with kids and out-of-shape adults. Felt entirely safe at all times on the busy Paris streets and learned a lot. Again, five days in Paris - this was the highlight. Just book it!
Enjoy True Secrets of Paris!

Cecilia is just absolutely fantastic. She is personable, attentive, inclusive and very entertaining. There are 6 of us in the party and joined another 6. She handled the group beautifully and her personality is exhilarating and she made the tour really enjoyable with fun facts and history. Highly recommended!

My sister and I joined this tour and we're so glad we did. Our tour guides were great fun and really knowledgeable. We loved the little book shop! We got to see parts of Paris we never would have known about. Can't recommend this enough. Great way to spend a few hours, plus, the bikes are actually really comfortable and easy to ride. Loved it.
Relaxing, scenic, and interesting

Exploring Paris on bicycles was a great choice while traveling with teenagers. Our guide, Arnaud, was really nice—informative, patient, and funny. Highly recommend!
