We 'accidentally' found this tour when searching for details of bike hire in Versailles,the night before going & we're glad we did! We called in the morning to see if there was space in the group & thankfully there was, so at 8.45am we joined the group at Notre Dame. Bike About keep their group sizes small, unlike some other...

My husband and I spent 8 days in Paris in mid-May. We made sure to rent bikes for a full day on Sunday, when Paris closes a number of streets for pedestrians, etc. It was incredible. Paris is fun to bike through, you can see so much and stay outside instead of being underground. I cannot think of a better... More

I can highly recommend this Tour. We did the 3,5 hour tour through Paris and it was a wonderful way to see the secret spots of Paris. Additionally, I foud the tour Guide Leonie, an Art history student very well informed about Paris and I appreciated the list of Restaurant recommendation we received afterwards.

My husband & I both enjoyed this great bike tour around Paris, both the back streets & the main. Our tour guide was friendly & very informational. I loved seeing the city this way & would love to try the Versailles tour on our next visit to Paris, highly recommend!

We took the Paris day tour and David was our guide. He did an excellent job. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. I only wish I had more time and would have done the Versailles tour as well.

The bike tour was wonderful! Despite the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed Mark's stories and journey through the market place and gardens at VersIlles. We had a lovely picnic at the gardens, which wS truly a highlight. Would love to book again in the future! Thanks so much for a great experience!

with Bike Abou Tours (Versailles and Paris Day Tour) and they were both great. Our guides (Mark and Rachel) were both knowledgable, funny and fun. The grounds at Versailles are huge and there is no way to see as much as we did, plus have a picnic on the canal, if we weren't on this tour and many of the... More

This was an educational and fun tour with Mark, the Irishman. His knowledge of Versailles is conveyed through many stories along the way. The trip is planned to incorporate more than just biking as there are stops at a farmers market, picnic by the lake, gardens, hamlet, and the trianons. We ended the day at the palace . Mark was...

It is as fun as the other reviews are saying. David made the tour interesting and really made sure everyone was having a good time including the younger kids.

Enjoyed a hour bike tour with a small group of 8 through downtown Paris. Pace was right and our guide Allie was very friendly and knowledgeable. This was a highlight of our trip and I highly recommend it for anyone experienced enough at pedaling to maneuver through the streets and crowds.

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.
