This was amazing. Our guide Olivier was so knowledgeable and friendly. My 13 and 15 year old children rated this as better than Disneyland. What a fun four hours. Finding hidden treasures of Paris, no crowds and all whizzing around on our electric bikes. So safe and so fun. Would highly recommend to anyone.

This is by far one of the best tours that I have ever taken. The bike tour was perfect for our family. We have two children (15 and 12) and it is sometimes hard to keep their attention when talking history. This tour captured them both. It was a great combination of site seeing, history and biking. The bikes assist... More

I took over 20 tour in Paris (that's part of my job) and this one in my top 3 I did. Great experience; ride a "electric" bike over Paris and visit spectacular, historical, and mysterious places in Paris, far from the main tourist attractions. Enjoy; a professional, and really qualified guide (maybe the best one I ever had). He know... More

We absolutely loved our 4 hour charms & secrets tour, full of information we would have taken months or years to discover on our own. The challenge of negotiating the busy Paris streets was made easy by our attentive guide, Christian, and gave me confidence to consider cycling around on our next visit. When we return we will do another... More

I took the tour with my 16 year old twins and Olivier was our guide. He was really knowledgeable but maybe more important his energy and story telling were energetic and fun enough to capture the attention of teenagers. I lived in Paris for 6 months and had not been to any of the spots (other than the meeting place)... More

Christian, our guide, was one of the most knowledgeable guides I have ever had in Paris. And I have had many. The bikes were a good way to get around; they did take a little getting used to. I did fall, and many Parisians jumped to my aide. I was the only one in our tour who fell, so it... More

We booked a private bike tour for 4 with Olivier while in Paris. It was by far our favourite day! He is an excellent guide and we felt safe and at ease. My kids are 13 and 15 years old and we thought this would be a hit with them - it definitely was! It was also a "hit" with... More

Christian took a group of us around hidden spots in Paris and it was a sensational experience. His knowledge and ability to explain the history of sooooo many sighted monuments, streets etc was incredible. Learnt so much and it was so enjoyable. Riding around Paris streets was amazing and although at first a bit scary, we had no issues even... More

Sometimes you just don't want to walk anymore. This is the perfect way to see Paris when your feet are aching and you still have a lot of ground to cover. My mom and I took the tour in April, my husband and I are visiting Paris in July and plan on taking it as well. Highly recommend!

We did lots of research before we went and just walked and walked. You don't need to pay to get into expensive attractions, instead invest in a book of metro/bus tickets for when you can walk no more. Walk round the Sorbonne area and the markets, go to Montmartre with it's village feel. Sit outside a cafe and watch the... More
