Martin our guide was amazing. He was very friendly and not only knowledgeable but interesting and engaging to listen to. He knew a lot about the history of the area, as well as facts about current events and buildings ect. We did not feel rushed and saw even more of Paris than we had expected to. There was only the two of us on the tour which made it very personal and Martin was eager to make the trip as interesting and unique to us as possible answering all the questions we had. The bikes were also easy to use and comfortable. We came away feeling very luck, very happy and inspired to learn even more about the city.

Heart of Paris bike tour

Our Paris bike tour was awesome! We really enjoyed it! Helen was so knowledgeable and made learning about history fun! She was the best! I would recommend this bike tour to anyone wanting a great tour of Paris. My husband, myself and my 10 and 15 yr old children really had a great time!

Way beyond expectations and immensely educational

The two of us booked a Paris bicycle tour accompanied by our elegant and oh so pleasant and knowledgeable guide Veronica. She was very personable and safely took us around the old cobble streets and filled us in with such rich historical information with wit and humor. Whilst explaining the historical references along the way with many well-placed stops, she also showed us some of the "hidden" areas and even stopped for some fine Moroccan tea. The experience was definitely well worth the excursion if for nothing else but for the deep historical underpinnings of the how's and who's as to why Paris is as it is today. The ride was at a moderate pace and Veronica very much knew her way around. The mobile app ticket was seamless and provided us with the event reminders and easy directions to the meeting place at the shop. All in all, we were very pleased with this tour and recommend it highly to others considering such an activity.
