Hit the streets of Paris and see the city like a local on a bike tour that focuses on lesser-known areas of the city. On a bike you’ll have access to some of Paris’ hard-to-reach corners. Admire secret street art, visit in-the-know bakeries, and touch a stray cannonball from the French Revolution with your guide. Plus, a small group makes for a smooth and stress-free experience.

What to Expect

Greet your guide at the Big Charlemagne Horse Statue, next to the entrance of Notre Dame Cathedral, for either the morning or afternoon tour. There, get fitted for a bicycle and helmet.

On this bike tour, pass by landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre, and venture into lesser-known parts of Paris. The tour primarily stays on bike paths, riversides, and small one-way streets for the best experience and is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels.

Your insider view of Paris means you’ll admire work from anonymous French street artists; visit the former homes of Jim Morrison and Victor Hugo; cycle by favored French bakeries; and delve into the history behind a 1,000-year-old wall. Your guide also offers recommendations on where to eat and visit once your tour is over.

This bike tour concludes at the original departure point.

SO MUCH FUN FOR KIDS (Used tandem bikes)

We took this bike tour using the tandem bikes with our kids. They are both 7 years old but we didn't feel they were proficient enough to ride the city streets on their own bikes. Admittedly, the tandem bikes were challenging at first but we...More

I don't recall there being any child carriers. Personally, unless you and your child are accustomed to riding on busy city streets, I would opt for one of the rides at Versailles. You may have to stop abruptly at... More

They have bikes for smaller riders. The company is very helpful. You may want to email them and tell them your child's height. I'd also suggest that you take the weekend early morning tour before the city gets into full... More
