His enthusiasm for the hidden gems of Paris shone through and he told us wonderful stories as if he was telling them for the first time . To tell you places visited will spoil the secret charm of this tour but we are so... More

I hate cycling, too much effort, so to use electrically assisted bikes to whizz around on is a great concept, they are really easy to use and require minimal effort. We saw some of the less well visited sights of Paris including the location of the "test" guillotine. Our guide Fabian was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Cycling/driving in... More

Having been to Paris many times, we wanted to do something different and this sure was it! The bikes were fun to use and it was thrilling to ride with the traffic and couldn't believe how considerate the taxi's and other cars were. They let us go even when we didn't have a green light just so we didn't "break"... More

We went on this tour last week with Olivier and we could not have asked for a more fun adventure. Initially I had some reservations about this tour as we are in our fifties and not in great shape, but the ebikes were so easy to use and we were able to maneuver the streets of Paris with ease and...

Chosen on the back of the many complimentary TA reviews, we were excited and perhaps a little apprehensive about heading out onto the streets of Paris on bicycles! But do not be alarmed, the electric bikes make light work of this expansive journey through the boulevards, sights and side streets of this amazing city. Our guide, Xavier, was a performer... More
