“See Paris from an entirely different angle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

A great introduction to Paris, make sure you do this tour at the beginning of your visit. Our guide Lauren knew lots about Paris and its history, and introduced us to places we would never have found otherwise. This experience gave us the confidence to hire a couple of Velib cycles and we spent the next few days whizzing around, experiencing Paris from an entirely different perspective. Some previous cycling experience does help, but is not necessary as there are plenty of breaks for commentary and photos.

“Great Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We did this 4 hour bike tour the morning after our arrival in Paris. It was fantastic. The bikes were super comfortable to ride and adjust. The tour guide, a young lady from Australia, was very charming, funny and knowledgeable. The time went by quickly and I did not want it to end. The route goes through many back quiet streets that we would not have normally seen. We stopped midway through for food/drink opportunity on a very touristy street, which was great fun. Our guide was full of recommendations upon the asking!

“Bike About Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

It does not get any better. We had the most wonderful time touring the Versailles with Stu who has a passion for French culture and a doctorate in french history. Fell in love with France. We were there with my daughter and son-in-law as they exchanged their vows as part of their wedding. This bike tour was the highlight of our trip. Do this if you are in Paris. They even did a night ride of Paris - awesome time even though my wife was almost run over by the crazy drivers. The French people are awesome.

“Wonderful day at Versailles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Our guide Stew was incredible. He made everyone laugh and we all learned a lot. My mom and I were worried because our group was around thirty people, but we split up into two smaller groups which was perfect. The market was adorable! My mom went to the wine tasting and said it was great, even I went and learned a few things about wine. The picnic site was gorgeous and the castle and gardens were incredible. My favourite part of the tour was seeing Marie Antoinette's hamlet, which was so cute! The bikes were in great shape, and the commute was fast and easy. I would definitely recommend this tour to groups of all sizes, and people of all ages! Absolutely awesome!

“Versailles bike tour, the fun way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We loved your tour of Versailles. Stu was our leader and his stories and involvement of each of the bikers as a character in the story, made it great fun. Much more interesting than just walking from one fancy room to another. We loved Marie Antoinette's hamlet, biking around the grounds of Versailles, the delicious fresh crepes at the market, the fountains.
