Overview
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 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 in central Pairs, for either the morning or afternoon tour, and get fitted for a bicycle and helmet.

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 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.

Hi there, We're so glad you enjoyed your tour with Bike About, and saw all the sights that most visitors don't even think to visit. It's true that while much of our ride is on bike paths and bike paths/bus lanes, we do hit one or two larger roads. We've been riding these routes with adults and children alike, and are secure in the safety of the route! Our guides are well trained on how to make you feel safe and taken care of during the ride. :) Thanks again for riding with us, Emily & the Bike About Team
