Oliver is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and takes you to see parts of Paris you would never otherwise find. The electric bikes are great fun and make for effortless touring. Highly recommended.

I loved this tour!!! Our guide Olivier was very knowledgeable, patient and funny. It is obvious that he is passionate about French history. He took us to many of the not so touristy sites of Paris..which I loved! The bikes were easy to ride, and I did not find it difficult to maneuver in the busy streets of Paris. I... More

We did the tour with Christian. There were 13 guests and it would probably have been better to divide the group in half or have a second guide. The line of bikes going the intersections of Parisian streets was too long. Having said that, I'm glad we didn't get divided and that I had Christian for a guide. He was... More

I tried this tour yesterday with Olivier, the boss of Paris Charms & Secrets Tour. It was absolutely amazing! Even after 5 & more times in Paris, I learned so much and with so much pleasure because Olivier is not only a simple city guide, he drives you into his stories like no one else. You listen to him as... More

The tour was a good one, I was happy I went on it. Christian was our guide and did a great job. Right at 4 hours, as expected. The bikes were fun, I liked riding an electric bike. The sites were nice, and he was an entertaining story teller. As long as you are fine with the 49 euro per... More

On a recent trip to Paris, my friends and I went on Paris Charms & Secrets bike tour. I was visiting Paris the second time, so I knew the city quite well. I can't recommend this enough! The ease of the electric bikes makes you forget you are even riding along. I visited places I wouldn't have even read about... More

We tried this activity in July 2014 and thought it would be an efficient way to see parts of Paris that we normally wouldn't walk to. Our 12 year old son is just over 5 feet and struggled with the electric bike at first, so he cycled directly behind the guide during the tour.There were about 12 cyclists zipping around... More
