What a great way to spend an afternoon, our guide Tomo was very knowledgeable and took us to places we would never have discovered on our own. The bikes are amazing, pedal if you want or the electric motor kicks in if you are in traffic or on a hill. Traffic was a bit hair raising at times but our... More

I can whole heartily recommend this cycling tour. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our half day tour. Our guide Xavier is a really nice guy. He conducted the tour in a friendly way and we felt at ease in his company. I was amazed by some of the sights and stories Especially some very special historical articles framed and... More

Olivier was an extraordinary guide in every sense - historian, story teller, warm and inviting, comfortability communicating to his audience, limiting the tour to small numbers, making us feel it was customized for us, safety, charm and communication before and after the tour. This tour exceeded expectations and is the one tour I will absolutely sign up for when we... More

To think I could have gone to Paris and missed this tour. Perish the thought! This tour was a highlight of our trip. The beautiful Paris Charms website should give you an idea of the quality and professionalism you will find on this tour. Olivier (our tour guide and owner) is not only intimately knowledgeable about everything Parisian, he is... More

I truly enjoyed this bike tour with our uber accommodating guide Xavier. The e-bike is so easy on the body, you don't feel like you have to work at all. We went to places that you would normally not see in other regular tours. Xavier had plenty of stories to tell about Paris and it helped me understand more about... More

This tour is the only bike tour you need! Our guide Tom did a splendid job taking care of us and insuring we got to see and hear all the sights and unique stories that make up Paris. It is truly for all ages as we had a gentleman of 84 years young in our group and Tom went out... More

We booked the bike tour with e-bikes because of the good rating on tripadvisor and our expectations were well outmet! Xavier, our guide not only is a charming and knowledgeable young man, but seems to take so much fun in sharing with us exploring unknown parts of Paris, which we did not at all expect. This out of mainstream-guidance took... More

I lived in Paris and we still were able to see sights I had never seen before! Absolutely a enjoyable way to spend a day in the city. A private tour is the way to do it so you get to ask lots of questions and get to learn a lot!! Even if you aren't an art person the things... 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.
