Cycle tours in general are great. They allow you to go quite a long distance, far more than a walking tour, and you can see things much closer than on a bus or a boat. Our group was only five, which was great, due to the bad weather, which wasn't so great. The guide was very friendly and had lots... More

As a family of 4 we did rent a bikes for one day. Excellent service with good price-value. This is a great way to see Paris from the other angle. So go for it just grab a map and start yours Tour de Paris.

We had a terrific tour with Paris A Velo C'est Sympa. After exploring the traditional visitor sites we wanted to learn a little more about Paris beyond the tourist spots. "Unusual Paris" was the perfect tour for this. Victor was a great guide and added a great deal to the experience as well.

A little misunderstanding when we booked the bikes... But all went well after all and Paris with no traffic was awesome.

Paris by Bicycle was wonderfully dangerous.. no really it was a little on edge for a person who was not use to riding in traffic, especially the traffic of Paris. In saying this it was good to see paris in this way and the three of us survived.

This was just great!! Taking a bike tour is a fantastic way of seeing some of the great attractions and learning more about Paris without walking your feet sore. We went on small charming roads through Marais and the 2nd Arr, before heading for the Louvren and Ile de la Cité. We were a group of 14 incl small children... More

I called last minute and joined a small group. I felt like a local as we cruised around neighborhoods learning about unusual sites. The tour was perfect because I wanted to see something other than the typical touristy stuff. Absolutely the best part of my trip to Paris!

I must admit, this was the part of our Paris trip that I was dreading. I hadn't been much of a bike rider in my adulthood. I wasn't sure my body would appreciate bumpy roads. Riding a bike in all the traffic of a city seemed a bit daunting. But, the afternoon we spent riding through Paris with our escorts... More
