My wife and I took the Versaille bike trip and gosh it was memorable. Great scene, perfect to have lunch at the middle of the garden. Tour guide was also good.

We had an awesome time on this bike tour. Our tour leader (Ed) was such a great guy and he shared great information about Paris with us. This was our first bike tour on our trip and it exceeded our expectations - thank you so much.

In our opinion, this guided bike tour was the best way to experience Paris for the first time. We have both traveled to Paris before, however this bike tour gave the sights, sounds and history of the city that we had not experienced before. The guides were great as well, humorous and super knowledgable. They seem truly passionate about the... More

Amber was our guide and she was fantastic! Getting off the beaten track and seeing sights you would not normally see on your own is the way to do it! Why visit the popular sights that you will see on your own without much trouble? The tour ran for about 4 hours and included a nice stop for a snack/lunch.... More

I had not ridden a bike for 30 years, so I was apprehensive. Like they say, "You never forget!" We had a wonderful day shopping at the markets for food - enjoying our picnic lunch and riding where one does not have the time to walk as the grounds are massive. We saw the palace when the crowds had thinned.... More

We would highly recommend this tour. David was an excellent guide; he not only provided us with a wealth of knowledge about Paris, he was also very attentive to our safety at all times. Thank you David - the bike about tour was the highlight of our trip!!

The tour was a great way to see Paris using a way that a lot of locals travel. Despite riding on the roads it felt safe and wasn't hard work to get around. We liked how the focus was on getting to know Paris rather than the big attractions as we saw them on our own. Our guide Adam was... More

Our tour guide David was just great. We visited so many highlights in the four hour tour. First time we've done a bike tour but we would do these again as it's just fun. We met terrific people from all over the world :) Enjoy this 😊 Rick and Denise Canada

We rode with Christian who, with partner Paul, founded the company. He is unbelievably knowledgeable about the city, particularly the parts that not everyone visits. This is a very easy ride-more stopping to look and talk than actual riding, so have NO fear about keeping up. Everyone in our group of eight said this was one of THE highlights of... More

bike about tours was recommended to me by a friend who had taken the tour himself. We did this tour on our first full day in Paris, the best decision. It gave us a really good overview of where sights are and also less touristy areas, great history overview and lovely stories to bring to life what we were seeing.... More
