Full description
Climb aboard a comfortable city bike for a 3-hour tour of the “City of Lights” and pedal down some of the famous avenues and boulevards of Paris as laid down by Haussmann in the 19th century.

A local guide will lead you along a route that also takes in back streets and secret alleys known only to Parisians. See famous landmarks from a different angle as you hear insightful stories about "La vie à Paris."

Depart from near the Arc de Triomphe, and pedal the paths to the Trocadéro, Eiffel Tower, and Champs de Mars, the huge green space that cuts from the Eiffel Tower to the École Militaire. Pass Les Invalides, and see some of the historic bridges over the River Seine.

Admire the gargoyles of the Notre-Dame de Paris, and pass the offices of the mayor at the Hotel de Ville. Continue to Place du Chatelet on the right banks of the Seine, before taking in the majesty of the Louvre and the modernity of the Centre Pompidou.

End on the Champs Elysees, just like the bike riders of the Tour de France for a perfect photo finish.

Although it rained a little, the tour guide guided me carefully and it was a very fun cycling. There were 10 participants, but everyone was friendly and at home. I was 60 years old, but I was a bit out of breath on the way, but I enjoyed myself while changing gears. I was able to take a break and enjoy the city of Paris.

Super Guide + Good Bike = Great Tour!

The tour was really fabulous! It was an unforgettable memory and the best in our 8-day journey in France. It was easy to find the meeting place and we were able to go to toilet nearby before the tour. Our guide welcomed us with a warm smile and we got nice bikes that suited our size with his advice. He was very kind, friendly and open-minded. Because he spoke easy English to us, Japanese tourists, we understood his explanation about history, interesting episodes and even jokes! Also we asked him many questions about famous places and life in Paris. That was very different from “Audio Guide”. As it was the day some VIP visited Paris, traffic was terrible. However we moved through the heavy traffic jam by bikes like flying Harry Potter on bloom!! Our guide led us safely and it was fun to follow him through the crowded crossing. We’d like to recommend this bike tour to the tourists from all over the world. We do believe good communication at sightseeing places is the most precious.

We got lucky and were the only two people on the English speaking tour so it was like a private bike tour. Our guide was really nice and knowledgeable, and she even took pictures of my wife and I at different spots. Even after having seen many sites previously, the tour offered new information about the history of different parts of Paris that you wouldn’t get from seeing it yourself. Definitely would recommend for anyone who is fully comfortable on a bicycle. If you’re not comfortable riding a bike or you get nervous with cars around you, do not do this tour. Coming from NYC, this felt normal for us, but I can see how it would be overwhelming for a lot of people (there we times when we even felt surprised we were riding on such busy streets). Also, this is definitely not a 3 hour tour. Block off at least 4 hours for this event.
