The blue bike tour was a lovely day out and our guide Thibault was very friendly and welcoming making the experience very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it to friends as a great way to see Versailles in a relaxing way that also enables you to learn a lot.

My wife and I did the Blue Bike Versailles tour. Our guide Claire had a great personality for this job. She is vivacious, happy and clearly likes her job. The tour is great, mostly very flat - about 6-7 miles of riding with well-timed breaks for lunch and the outlining "smaller" chateau visits. It was a long day with a... More

This tour is an ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone traveling to Paris. It was truly the highlight of our family's Paris vacation! Our guide, Guillaume, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, engaging, and funny. We booked a private tour and saw some of the best of Paris and some of the secrets of Paris. Our tour began close to Notre Dame, and wound... More

We have a great time on this trip and a wonderful guide. We had ample time to stop and explore at many of the stops and finished wanting more. We saw places we never would have found on our own. It was a small group of us, 10 or so, and they were all charming.

What a great way to see some of the not so regularly seen sights of Paris. Jean-Phillipe was an exceptional guide. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.

3rd visit to Paris so this was a fantastic way to re orientate, cover a lot of ground and see Paris from a different perspective. Genuine knowledgeable guide!

I did two of these bike tours. The evening highlights with Seine cruise and the secrets. Both were great experiences. The guides were so knowledgable and attentive to the group being safe on the bikes, on the roads, and informed on the sites visited. We had JB and Claire as our guides and can highly recommend them.

What a great experience. Our guide, Claire, did a fantastic job providing insights about the areas we traveled and instilled her passion for Paris in all aspects of her tour. She was very flexible and showed us wonderful back-streets and lesser traveled spots. If you don't want e regular tourist tour, go for this. It was laid back and educational.... More

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
