I really enjoyed this tour. I did it on the second day as it's fully booked on my first day. Even though Paris is beautiful and easy to walk about, I must say I found it hard to grasp the soul of city by walking alone aimlessly around the sights. With the bike about tour, I discovered a lot of... More

We have been to Versailles previously but as it is so large, didn't have time to see much of the grounds, particularly Marie-Antoinette's hamlet. Going on bikes makes it such a different experience. We started by getting our picnic lunch in the market in the town of Versailles, then cycled through the chateau grounds and viewed the hamlet, which is... More

As a first time visitor to Paris, the bike tours offered by Bike About are a must. They are informative, fun and a great way to see parts of Paris that the average tour won't take you. We enjoyed the tour of Paris so much we booked a tour of Versaille for the next day. This was outstanding as we... More

April in Paris!! Couldn't wait!! Bike About was the only way to see the Marais and Versailles. We loved having the information presented in such a clever way that Stu did!! A highlight of our trip.

We absolutely loved this tour. Paul was a friendly, knowledgeable guide, who showed us places in Paris we would have never seen or otherwise known about. On top of the history and architecture lessons, we biked almost seven miles around the city. My eleven year old daughter emphatically states that it was the best day she had in Paris! When... More

Our 1st afternoon in Paris was spent on a Bikeabout city tour. There was a large group of enthusiastic cyclists on the tour so the group was divided into two smaller groups. Our group numbered about 10 which was a lovely manageable group. Our tour leader David is a lovely young man from England who we found extremely knowledgeable about... More

Having been to Paris several times, we were looking to do something different on our last day. I found bike about on line and was able to secure a place for myself and my husband at short notice. Our guide, Beth, was absolutely delightful, a real breath of fresh air. She was very knowledgable but presented the historical information in... More

We loved the bike tour around the back streets of Paris. It was a wonderful way for the family to cover a lot of ground at a very leisurely pace without sore legs and feet! I would recommend this ride to anyone it is for all standards, all you need to do is keep up with the group which is... More

Although the bikes were basic 3 speed, they were certainly adequate for the type of biking in Versailles. We were very happy with our choice of companies, as other tour companies had larger group numbers. Our fabulously informed and entertaining guide, Beth, was a jewel. She was always providing the group with information from reading train schedules to safety biking... More

We missed Versailles on our first visit to Paris so we were determined to see it this time. A friend suggested we do a bike tour and, after much research, I decided on Bike About Tours. It was no mistake. The meeting place in front of Notre Dame could not be easier to get to and it was only a... More
