Nice bike tour along the lesser known parts of Paris. Cycling was very doable and we went to places we would never have ended up otherwise. The guide was very energetic and could tell diligently what made the time so fast, even for the teenagers in the group.

Great experience, totally recommend it. You see a lot (more than on foot), hear interesting facts, discover things I would never discover by myself.

Very nice guides and an amazing tour around the city. We learned about parts of Paris that were off the beaten path and had a great time!

Thank you Arnaud, very nice walk and well commented, the best to you
