Yes, it might be tricky on the bike if you are not used to riding one. But the group is relatively small (I was told maximum 12 pax and we only had 4, with... More

He was so passionate and kind and such an incredible story teller. Our family asked us what one thing we'd do again, if we had the chance, and we both... More

What a lovely and unique way to see and learn about Paris! Our guide Xavier was genuinely excited to share the secrets of the city. Really brought the history to life and we saw places we NEVER would have discovered on our own. The electric bikes are genius...made the 4 hour tour fun, without breaking a sweat. Highly recommended!

Great way to see the sites of Paris. Traffic can be scary but my 12 year old was able to cope OK. Guide (Tomo) was great. Bicycle really easy to handle would definitely recommend.

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.
