We really enjoyed this tour. Christian, our guide, was very knowledgeable and included everyone when discussing the surroundings. Felt very safe on the routes he took us. There were 10 in our group but just 2 bookings (one group of 8 and our group of 2.) Our group were very friendly, getting to know them on the way. The weather was fab too...win, win!

This tour was really nice, because we got to know Paris from a completely different side. Between a visit to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the HopOnHopOff bus, this was the excursion that showed us Paris from its "normal", more French side. Absolute recommendation!

I absolutely loved this bike tour! It was so much fun and our tour guide was extremely knowledgable. It was just the right length of time and so much of Paris was covered. I would happily do this tour again.

Helen our guide was terrific!! Her knowledge of Paris was exceptional. The bikes were in good condition and easy to ride. I highly recommend this Paris bike tour.

Excellent guide with an outstanding knowledge about Paris and it’s history!
