This tour was amazing,riding through the backstreets of different districts.We would not have seen all of the areas on our own. Our friendly guide was very knowledgeable,the group was small so made it easier for all aspects of the tour. We also did the Versaille tour three years ago. we highly recommend this company for BikeTours.

Our family owere staying in Paris and on the recommendation of a friend thought we would try Bike About Paris. We picked the Versailles tour on a Sunday and it couldn't have been better.

My family visited Paris and took the Bike About Tours Versailles tour in the summer of 2013. We loved it! My kids, ages 10 and 12 at the time, still say that was one of the best times they had on the trip. The tour guides were informative and safe, with a great sense of humor that kept the kids... More

After days of sightseeing on foot in Barcelona, it was nice to have the bike tour when we got to Paris. We enjoyed the tour very much and learned a lot. This experience has made me realize that I need to book more sightseeing tours when I travel. We rented bikes from Bike About Tours the day after our tour... More

We were a group of 7 middle-aged friends having a reunion in Paris. We wanted to see some of the sites and learn a little more about the city in a fun way. Bikeabouttours arranged a private tour for us, lasting 4 hours. The guide was excellent and we found cycling on the many cycle paths very easy. The Pastry... More

My wife and I took out 15 year old daughter on the bike tour of Versailles. Had a great time. Guide was lots of fun and interesting. Perfect day trip out of Paris. The town of Versailles is very quaint, the palace over the top. You can see why the peasants rose up.

If you plan to spend a day in Versailles, then be sure to book Bike About Tours!!! Unlike some of the other outfits, Bike About is a small operation with only about 15 guides, and the tour sizes are kept small and manageable. Our guide, Mark (Marek?

Our guide was very enthusiastic, well spoken (in three different languages), and had an impressive knowledge of the city. I would HIGHLY recommend this service for a bicycle tour around Paris!

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.
