We had absolutely the best experience with our Italian guide. He had done so much research and was very interesting with anecdotes on all the places we stopped. He was also very solicitous of the two older women he was guiding

We were a group of four friends on a trip to paris and this was definitely a highlight, Oliver our guide was fantastic and equal parts patient tour guide, historian and story teller. We really enjoyed it and it was a great half day off from all of our walking. Last but not least was the stop we made for... More

This was one of my favourite activities during our time in Paris. Olivier was our guide (a group of 8) for a tour on Oct. 7, and his passion for history/love of his work made the four hours pass by almost instantly. He took our group to a variety of historical sights, cafes, monuments and neighbourhoods, all the while immersing... More

The bikes themselves are excellent quality so that the actual riding is effortless and fun. The real adventure though are the stories and sights (the charms & secrets) that are revealed during the tour. Stories about Napolean, Delacroix, Van Gogh, Friday 13th etc, etc are all unravelled as the wonderful roads of Paris are explored

This was a very lovey way to see Paris. The electric bikes are regular bikes, but heavier. The streets of Paris can be scarry on a bike, but rest assured that we spent very little time on the busy streets. Honestly, I was more afraid of some of my fellow bikers who had not been on a bike in a... More

jenny and I are 52 yo and took this tour with our young 12 yo son and it was a great experience and capably managed by the young man (can't remember his name as 2 months ago.) The tour has some risk riding through traffic but the guide expertly advised how to ride and would stop traffic at intersections as... More

I would have liked to see more of Paris in this way. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. He was able to bring history to life with his anecdotes.. I was a little concerned with biking in Paris traffic, but it was fine with the guide. We went as a family of four, enjoyed by all

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
