About
If you’ve already admired the top Paris attractions by day, see a different side of the city on an evening bike tour. Traveling by bicycle grants you access to narrow streets and hidden squares inaccessible by car, while exploring in the evening means smaller crowds and illuminated landmarks. Plus, your bike tour includes a Seine river cruise during where you receive a glass of wine.

Pass the luminescent Notre Dame Cathedral and watch street performers enliven the square in front of the sacred sight. Discover the back courtyard of the Louvre and stop to choose from 20 flavors of ice cream (own expense) at popular dessert spot Berthillon.

      An excellent tour
      Wonderful tour guide and operator. Versailles by bike is the way to go! Going by bike on the grounds of the estate is really eye opening and gives you a great overall experience

      Great Value Added Tour!
      Our tour was fantastic! Great attitudes and a lot of Aloha was much appreciated. This is real value for the money. It was the first thing we did when we landed to get a foothold of the area and it did not disappoint.

      I highly recommend this tour - it’s fantastic!
      The bike tour was great. It was very fun and informative. The 3 hours flew by. I learned so much. Our tour guide Andrew was terrific and also very engaging, fun and funny. My two teenagers (girls 16&17) also loved it. It’s been a highlight of our trip to Paris. The bikes were great and Paris is flat with lots of bike lanes so the biking was easy. We biked and stopped the perfect amount of both. I highly highly recommend this tour!

      Best tour ever!
      My husband and I just took the day tour through Paris with Toby as our guide. I was absolutely fantastic! The tour was perfection, easy bike riding and great stops. But Toby, the tour guide, made the day over the top. Not only was he a safe leader navigating the crazy streets of Paris, his knowledge of Paris and all its landmarks history was never ending. We learned so much today and had fun doing it! We will definitely take another Fat Bike Tour when we return to Paris. And hoping Toby is our guide again…did I mention his excellent picture taking abilities? Perfection!

      Amazing Versailles tour
      Amazing tour by Dave Lombardi our guide. Super safe and fun. Lots of info delivered in a friendly way. We specifically recommend doing Versailles by bike to be able to visit the whole extension of the gardens. The visit to Marie Antoinette’s quarters were the highlight of the visit. Doing the tour on a Friday when the town’s market is in full movement is highly recommended. We did a picnic on the grounds of the Palace and it was amazing!!!

      Good way to see some of Paris. By bike we felt you get more of a feel for the city's ambience. The info was good and the bikes in good shape.

    Paris is magical at night and this bike tour is a great way to see some of it. Our guide was nice, funny and wanted to make sure everyone was safe. Something to be aware of is that the advertised boat tour does not run at 8:00 during the winter so instead they give you the tickets for it that are good for two years. You can also go to the 9:00 boat ride if you want on your own. We did this and got lucky because they have a required number of participants and almost didn’t have enough for the boat tour to leave. This would have been an issue since we were leaving the next day and most likely won’t be back to Paris. I would have appreciated if they just advertised the winter tour without the boat ride and reduced the price since your doing it on your own anyway. Also one of the advertised highlights of the tour is going to the outside of the Louve. We did not go here at all which was disappointing because we had not gone on our own that day thinking we would be going on the ride. Overall we had fun but we did feel it was a bit expensive for what you got. I could see how this would be a great tour in the summer, but can’t really recommend during the winter.

    Did you ever get a tour where the guides were totally into their jobs? Our guys (and woman) were great. They were very much into the history, even trading info with each other. And they had wonderful senses of humor. At first, it was kind of intimidating, riding around in rush hour traffic, but O.J. (the chief guide) was very reassuring and careful. He was constantly aware of his charges and we waited frequently for people who had gotten cut off from the group (never fear, though, there are also guides at the end). We ate gelato near Notre Dame, crossed the "lock" bridge, and crossed the plaza at the Louvre. Those were just the highlights. The best part was locking up our bikes near the Eiffel Tower and boarding a Bateau Mouche for a one hour tour up and down the Seine. The Tower was "sparkling" as we pulled away from the quay and again when we returned. Please, though, leave a tip for the guides. Although they were fabulous, there were few tips in the containers when we left.

    Our experience with Fat Tire Tours was great. Firstly, shoutout to Chai, our guide (and bartender haha) for providing us with a memorable tour.

    We rode through the city, stopped for ice cream, and we were given the short and sweet versions of the history of the different Paris landmarks. There was a small issue with my partner’s bike and Chai graciously offered his own bike to use while he fixed it. :) The tour ended with a nice boat tour of la Seine, some wine to keep us warm, and then we made one last stop by the Eiffel Tower in time to see it sparkle.

    Definitely recommend this tour for all.

    It felt surreal to be riding a bike through Paris. I am so glad I booked this tour. The tour guides were friendly, helpful, and welcoming. They made an effort to learn everyone's name. Our leader was Australian. I loved this tour and exploring Paris on a bike. The only criticism I have is that it went a bit fast--not the riding pace, but we didn't stop at the places listed and hear a bit of history about them. It was more of just a continuous ride. I was hoping we'd stop at each of the 12 places listed and hear about them from our guides. I still enjoyed the bike tour, even though I felt like we were constantly being rushed because we had to catch the boat for the ride down the Seine. It was awesome that this was part of the bike tour! I loved riding along the Seine after dark with a glass of wine they provided; I just felt like our tour group was rushed on the bike part so that we'd be sure to make the boat on time. Seeing the Eiffel Tower from the water after dark with all it's glittering lights was very special. Oh, also we stopped for Bertillon ice cream which was amazingly delicious. It was very cold and cloudy, but I got it anyway. It was expensive and certainly not ice cream weather, but I am so glad I got it because it was so good, and I actually went back the next day to get more :)

    We did the Paris Night Bike Tour which included a Boat Cruise in the River Sienne. It was a magical night and so much fun. Our guide Dovi provided us with tidbit’s of history at each stop. We covered a huge area and visited most of the iconic landmarks. It was a good mix of riding and information. Felt completely save under Dovi’s guidance around the busy city streets. Finishing off in a river cruise with a glass of wine was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend this tour to get your bearings around the city and learn of places of interest you might like to visit in more depth. Thanks Dovi for such a great night!!!

    SOOO much fun. Tess was a great guide and kept the wine coming on the Seine as the Eiffle Tower lit up and sparkled. Rain did not dampen the the fun as we donned our reflective vests, helmets and ponchos (what a sight). Rain stopped almost immediately and we biked through traffic and narrow streets safely and with ease. Was the first thing we did in Paris and set up the rest of the trip beautifully. Really got a kick out of JEFFY the Bank, a must see in Paree. A Must do excursion for everyone. Kim will avoid the pylons next time for sure and Lisa will let someone else take the lead.

    We had an absolute blast riding through Paris with Tobey & Co on the night bike tour. Incredible way to experience the city and some of its highlights. The pacing of the tour was perfect and Tobey did an excellent job of directing/instructing the group to make sure we were all safe. It was one of our favorite nights in Paris - 10/10 highly recommend!

    This was one of the BEST tours I've ever had. Rory was our guide, funny, friendly and patient. We went through some challanging areas, but no tourists, bikers or Parisiennes were harmed. The boat ride and wine made it even more fun and added a good variety to the tour. I am glad we did it the very first day, and got a better idea about what points of interest to visit later during the day. We rented bikes from the same place the very next day and toured the city the whole day.

    This was not a good tour. 30-40% of the ride was waiting on the bike for group to come together. They should make the group smaller than 20 to avoid this. The only things you see light up at night was on the hour tourist boat ride on the Seine.

    The first part of the trip was a ride to an ice cream shop by Norte Dame. Hardly any conversation about ND or historical sites passed. As ND site is currently under reconstruction, perhaps a different site, perhaps Arc de Triumph should replace NF.

    This was a great night. Riding through Paris at peak hour was a bit nervous but tour guide David was great at getting us through the intersections.
    We saw all the main sites and the river cruise was awesome too.
    Passed the Eiffel Tower in the dark so saw it in all its lighted glory
