We did the 2:30 session with Xavier who was passionate, knowledgeable and a fantastic host. This tour does not really cover major icons but delves into far more interesting and unknown secrets of the city. For 50 euro this tour is an absolute steal - electric bikes make the riding absolutely effortless, the content is ridiculously interesting and you get... More

I booked this tour as my 2 young teenagers had never been to Paris & we were to be in the city for only 3 days. Our guide was Tom & he did a great job of telling us about the well-kept secrets of the city that you wouldn't hear about otherwise. He was amusing, polite & even helped me... More

I booked this at the last minute and was happy they were able to fit the 3 of us in. You have to give them 3 options and we got our second one which actually was the better of the three given the warm weather. We did the ride Sunday evening, 28 June, from 8-11pm. Tom met us at the... More

We booked the tour quite last minute and was quite lucky to get a spot. Xavier was our tour guide during the 4 hours and we absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. He was full of interesting stories and he even managed to make history sound fascinating. We were worried in the beginning riding our bikes in traffic as we... More

I was a little apprehensive about this tour because our time was limited so I booked it for the afternoon of our arrival -- I was afraid that we might be dragging due to jet lag. I had no need to worry! Xavier made the tour so entertaining and exciting that we never felt tired. Since the bikes were electric,... More

I have had a lot of tours in my life with a lot of different guides, however Xavier was an excellent and motivated guide who clearly enjoys his job.They provided quality electric bikes which made our tour easy and faster. I highly recommend to take the Sunday morning tour, as the traffic on the road is much less.

Xavier, our tour guide was very professional and caring, always looking back and stopping to make sure nobody was left behind. The electric bikes were really easy to pedal and required almost no effort! The sights included in this tour were really off the beaten track and extremely interesting and eye-opening. 49EUR for a 4 hours tour was really worth... 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.
