I had the pleasure of enjoying this tour with 4 other friends on Saturday 14th March. It was fantastic. One of the party was in fact from Paris, and she herself had never seen Paris in this way. We learned and saw a whole set of new sites and facts, and had a wonderful experience. Our thanks to Tom (Tommo)... More

At 66 and nearly 70 we wondered if we would cope okay with a bicycle tour but our guide, Xavier, was wonderful. He taught us thoroughly, helped when necessary and generally guided us all safely and brilliantly. Don't let being older put you off doing this tour - it's a great way to cover a lot of ground and see... More

I took this tour with my family and it was awesome! We were taken to less touristy areas and got to learn some interesting anecdotes :) We are actually French and have been to Paris many many times and still, on this tour, we discovered many new places. Our guide Tomo was very friendly and attentive to everyone. And wow... More

I felt like a local zipping around Paris on a bike! With an electric bike, you cover a lot of ground minus all the huffing and puffing. My 13 year old and I braved a cold winter's day and got a virtual private tour with Xavier. He is very kind, helpful and passionate about history. After our tour, my daughter... More

Our New Year's Day tour with Olivier was beyond our expectations! The places he took us, the stories he told were fun, interesting and informative. Olivier took us to sights that we never would have found on our own and he adeptly navigated us through Paris streets on the electric bikes. On a cold winter day, don't hesitate to ask... More

This is a great way to see Paris. You don't do the usual touristy stuff as you are guided to some truly special places that you would never know about if you stuck to the standard tourist sites.

I could not have expected such a fantastic tour. I have been to Paris numerous times but this time I will not forget. Our guide Xavier was nice and passionate. We discovered some beautiful hidden places and the history of the places was very exciting. Riding an e-bike is also very easy and enjoyable. Xavier made sure we were safe... More

e-Bike tour with Olivier and Xavier was beyond expectations. Olivier is the master of Paris and his knowledge base is fantastic. I strongly recommend this tour.It was unbelievable.

Our guide Olivier was wonderful!!! He ensured that we were all safe on the tour and even changed our order to make sure the slower riders were at the front and everyone kept up. His knowledge and passion was contagious and he wouldn't begin talking until everyone was close. He obviously enjoys his work and it shows. The ride is... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
