There’s a lot more to Paris than just the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. This one-of-a-kind guided 4-hour electric bike tour will take you beyond the attractions everyone knows, to explore some of Paris’ most hidden treasures, secrets, and stories. After you pick up your electric bicycle, follow your guide through the city on a sightseeing adventure that takes you from the tranquil banks of the River Seine to the lofty vantage point of Montagne Sainte-Geneviève. Riding an electric bike is easy and fun – anytime you start to feel tired, it's easy to get a boost from the eco-friendly engine to get you over that hill. Hear new and surprising stories about Paris monuments while cruising through the historic streets of Saint-Germain-des-Près. You're sure to discover some of the city’s best romantic spots: quiet bridges, shaded parks, and trendy cafes. You can also choose to take the 3-hour evening tour to focus on the city’s striking nighttime views and lighting displays on a different route through the heart of the city.

Paris: Covered Passages Walking Tour

2. Paris: Covered Passages Walking Tour

Explore Paris’s covered passages: half-hidden covered streets filled with shopping and culinary treasures. Take a dazzling guided tour through 5 of Paris’ magical arcades, some of them dating back to the 1700s, and learn their secrets, history, and the best places to shop and dine. Begin at the Galerie Vivienne, a neoclassical-style covered passage dating to 1823, now a national monument filled with luxury boutiques. After the Galerie Vivienne, explore the Passage Choiseul, where over 600 feet of sunlit shops gather under the stunning glass roof. Be sure to look at the beautiful, ornately tiled floor. Continue the tour at the Passage des Panoramas, Paris' first covered walkway, built more than 200 years ago. Admire its old-fashioned charm and ancient architecture. Your guide will point out the best artisanal shops and eateries as you stroll along the scenic passage. Next, the Passage Jouffroy presents a narrow frame for shoppers to navigate, accented everywhere with glass and iron. It even houses a small wax museum that your guide will show you. At each of these stops your guide will direct your attention to details you might otherwise miss, fascinating pieces of history, and the story behind how these many covered passages in Paris found their way to the capital of fashion. The tour ends at the Passage Verdeau, where antique dealers and vintage curiosities crowd the walkway.

Highly recommend Pierre and this tour to everyone!

Ebike your was amazing, exciting and ideal for first time visitors to Paris.
