Owner description: We're passionate about street art! On any one of our tours or workshops, we'll immerse you in the culture and history of the Paris and international street art and graffiti movement. The main street art and graffiti zones are in the north-east of Paris (Belleville tour), and in the 13th arrondissement (Left Bank), where you will be able to see a huge range of commissioned and unauthorised art, and occasionally, even meet the artists in person. We are known for being relaxed and informal, but also as experts - we are an organisation comprised of artists and documentarians, as well as plain enthusiasts, we're friends with many of the artists whose work we'll see, so our knowledge of the scene is direct from the streets. We also offer mural art workshops.

What an eye opener! It doesn't matter if you know everything or nothing about street art ( I knew* nothing, now know a lot!), you will be we'll and truly looked after on this tour. Demian has an amazing amount of knowledge on the local street art and the global history of street art, he's basically a walking street art encyclopaedia! Any questions you have he'll have the answer! The stories Demian provides about the street art are just as interesting as the artwork itself! Not only do you get to see some amazing street art but you get to explore parts of paris that you wouldn't normally venture through, an area of paris that is full of culture and character! And the view from the belleview park is amazing! I'd recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your Parisian stay, it will in a way tran your eyes to spot the street art as you explore paris on your own. Wish there was more than five stars!!! **********

This is a one of kind tour in a working class neighborhood in Paris. Demien was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about Urban Art. He gave us very clear explanations on the differences between graffiti, street art and urban art. There is so much urban/street art around Paris that you should really do this tour early in your Paris visit so you can appreciate this artwork throughout your visit.

Simply put, this is a great way to spend a morning in Paris! Even on a cold winters day (and despite having no gloves!) it was definitely worth braving the cold and hopping on our bikes to explore Paris's fascinating street art scene. The beauty of this tour is that it opens up a whole new side to Paris and Demian, with his passion and knowledge, certainly made this a memorable experience which I would recommend to anyone...

Due to Demian´s excitement on the subject this has been a wonderful tour on bike introducing an interested group to street art in general and paris' sub-culture especially. Thanks again. Best thing we did in paris.

The Alternative Paris bike tour was a great way of not only seeing some great street and urban art, but a fantastic way of getting around to see areas in the East of Paris you would never usually just stumble across or discover by oneself. Demian was extremely interesting and interested, and able to share his vast knowledge on the subject, processes and history of street and urban art - he really knows his stuff and clearly loves what he does.

My advice would be to go at a slightly (no, much) warmer time of year (rather than a chilled Sunday morning in early Feb). However if not possible, don't forget to bring gloves! (Nevertheless, this was relieved by stopping off for croissants and coffee on the way! - couldn't really complain).

I would also say to bring a camera and/or notepad as you will be grateful after the tour.

Apart from the climate, which is well, pretty difficult to control, I would highly recommend going on this fun-filled tour! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip, and would love to go again/to one of the workshops on my next visit to this beautiful city.

Thank you Demian for our eye-opening day!
