My husband and I recently (2 days ago) went on the Fat Tire Bike tour to Versailles, and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Our guide Dan was FABULOUS! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Versailles and the French Revolution, and managed to keep my husband - who is not a huge history buff -... More

My husband and I did the Versailles tour with four young adults age 17 to 23 and this was our favorite activity of our London/Paris trip. The trip to the market to buy food was a bit challenging, but our guide gave us great advice and we split up (although some of us opted to eat eat crepes at the... More

We heard such excellent things about these trips that we booked two tours through them. The first one we did was the night bike tour. We did this the day of arrival. Despite the jet lag, I highly recommend starting here to get a lay of the land when you arrive in Paris. It really gave us a sense of... More

My wife and I took the Versailles tour. This is an outstanding tour. We saw the grounds of Versailles from a vantage that you could not see on your own. Our tour guide, Anya, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an excellent perspective on how and why Versailles with its multiple palaces was erected. She also gave us great insight... More

I did the night bike tour of Paris. I really enjoyed the bicycling through the streets at night, as they are much more serene. Even Louvre museum was quite empty at night and we biked around it with plenty space around us! The night lights made the city whimsical and beautiful. Our group was pretty large and I felt safe...

Pedaling leisurely round trip from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame was a delight with our fabulous guide April. Paris lights were gorgeous as we stopped for the best Parisian ice cream on the banks of the Seine. To top the evening off we sipped complimentary wine on our river boat ride. Great fun! April have us terrific restaurant recommendations... More

This was booked for my birthday and what a treat. Fat Tyres (sic for the English!), is the perfect way to see the majority of the sites in Paris. We did the daytime and the evening tours with Darcee and Paul, American and Australian, respectively. You tend to ride in groups of 20 on cruiser style bikes which are easy... More

My wife and I were on a 10 night British Isles cruise in July and booked an 11:00am bike tour. Unfortunately we never made it to the tour. I booked an 8am train from Le Havre to Paris that should have gotten to Paris by 10:15 which left more than enough time to get to the bike tour meeting place.... More
