Nicholas is just so amazing! He took us to places where I wouldn’t discover myself. The bike tour was a breeze despite the 14km route. Our tour guide is very knowledgeable, warm, hospitable, and entertaining! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Paris.

I love TripAdvisor, but I cannot understand how Heather ranks only 123rd among the 400+ Paris tour companies. She is so amazing! We are fortunate to be living in Europe for a few years, so we have the opportunity to visit Paris on a regular...More
