My son Ryan had a dream ....... to ride a bicycle in Paris, with a baguette in his backpack! Simple I know but hey. he is only 16! We set out to fulfill this wish by finding Blue Bike Tours on the internet. We were expertly guided through the manic streets of downtown Paris and also taken to some quiet retreats, intimate village type areas and of course the fabulous landmarks of Paris. JB was our guide ...... he is definitely in the right job! He sourced us the prized baguette and for me some delightful foie gras from a little deli in a back lane ....... so as you see by the picture Ryan was happy, and me ....... I'm back in Australia happily munching on my foie gras with crusty bread YUM!

We did both the evening tour and the hidden gems tour and were so impressed! (We proceeded to do bike tours in Vienna and Prague and they paled in comparison). Jean Baptiste and Jean Philippe were wonderful guides and our stops were well chosen. The bikes were great quality and we had a blast.

What a fantastic way to get a quick and fun overview of the highlights of Paris, and to meet some great people while you're doing so. Getting a quick overview of various "must sees" in Paris is a great way to determine which areas you want to visit later in more depth. It was also a lot of fun to hang around with a bunch of strangers for a while. I met people from 3 continents! The cycling was also a blast. How many people can say they cycled around the courtyard of the Louvre? Cycling on the streets was fun too. If you obey the traffic signs everything is just fine (in case you are a bit anxious about the thought of riding a bike in Paris traffic - cyclists have the right of way). I would recommend bringing some smaller bills or some larger denomination coins for tips. I only had a large bill and some small coins and wanted to leave Claire a tip for the awesome guiding she did. Some others only had currency from their own country. Even if you don't think you'll tip, give yourself the option because I'm kicking myself for leaving a small tip.

We booked a private tour. We had 4 adults and 3 kids with us. All of us had a blast riding around Paris. This is a great way to see the city. Hava, our guide was so knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the city in just a few hours. You could tell she loved the city, and that made us fall in love too. We also paid extra for a picnic with wine. We loved sitting in the park close to the Eiffel tower. It was amazing! We went shopping for the food with the locals at a few different shops, that was a highlight also. The food was delicious to say the least, and it was just a sandwich, but it was the whole experience that made this so great. By far this was the best money spent in Paris! If we are severe in Paris again we will definitely be riding around on a blue bike! Thank you Hava for the best part of our time in Paris.

We did the Versailles tour with Blue Bike Tours. It was great, especially after a few days walking around Paris. The guide was excellent and my daughter quickly bonded with the other kids on the tour. One thing to note: if you arrive at Gare d'Austerlitz on the metro you need to go upstairs to find the meeting point. We screwed this up and ended up meeting every one else in Versailles (sorry JB!). But this is highly recommended as the best way to see Versailles. The grounds are the best part and you won't see them all on foot.
