We attended the Paris Charms & Secrets bike tour led by Fabienne during our trip. It was brutally cold but Fabienne's unwavering enthusiasm for the history and his amazing talent for storytelling made the time in the cold well worth it. I loved how the tour included so many off the beaten path attractions and places that we would have... More

This tour should be obligatory for all visitors to Paris! Whether you're in Paris for a day or a month, this tour will be the absolute highlight of the trip! We were in a small group of 10 (the maximum), which was the perfect size, and were led by our charismatic, insightful, and charming guide Fabien. Any slight hesitation I... More

You learn about curious facts and histrory in a very interesting way, our guide Fabien was full of energy, very knowledgeable and entertaining. The e-bikes are fun and effortless. Our two daughters that were 10 and 12 liked it very much and enjoyed the whole thing. Definitely recommend... More

This was the best thing our group did in Paris. Our guide Olivier was not only knowledgeable but very passionate about Paris and its history. It was not just a tour of famous landmarks but an off the beaten path tour of France's history with a great finishing story that tied many of the places visited together into a very... More

This was a great tour. Fabian was fantastic, knowledgeable and funny. He went out of his way for us to appreciate it all the large main attractions and hidden places that only locals would know. We even enjoyed hot chocolate in the middle of our tour which was great as it was very cold, but the place had crazy historic... More

He was very energetic and did an amazing job of storytelling. He... More

So pleased to have read the reviews on TA for this tour and book before we arrived this week - and we are so glad we did. Fabien took us on a magical mystery ride around some well known and some not so well known sites of Paris, we loved the visit to the Congregation of Saint Esprit, a breathtakingly... More
