This was an unexpected pleasure! We have done the “mega-boat” tour of the seine years ago & this was unique & much more enjoyable. There were only 4 of us, all related & 65+ years old. Artur was awesome. He took 174 (yes 174) photos of us & all the “money shots” on his phone & airdropped all of them to all 4 of our phones after the trip. That alone is priceless. He was engaging but not trying to be a drone tour guide. We throughly enjoyed & highly recommend.

Magnificent experience with a very friendly guide who explained the history of all the monuments that we were seeing. Going by electric bike without any effort we tour the center of Paris in an agile way. Better to have some practice riding a bike, and better if you have practice with electric bikes, but with the help of the guide everything is easier.

Artur was very friendly and did a great trip for us. We enjoyed a bottle of champagne and some water and beers. He knew a lot about the bridges but some history about the buildings and area would have been a little nice to have. We would highly recommend this trip!!!

We had a great time on our tour! It was a nice way to see the city at night and to hear about some of the chilling history in Paris.

The tour was great. Some really interesting stories. Our guide Morgan was fabulous.
