Our cycling adventure with Fat TIre was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. Having explored the city on foot for several days, the outing was also a welcome relief for sore feet! Our guides were well-informed and personable and our trip as a group along the city streets and parks was safely executed. The ride gave us the chance to see Paris from a truly different perspective. We would highly recommend an excursion with Fat Tire, especially for families with teenagers.

Our Segway Tour was the favorite part of our trip to Paris. The Segways were so easy to learn and fun to ride. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the city and it's glorious history. The tidbits of unusual, off beat information were great fun, too. We can't wait to go on vacation again and find another City Segway tour to go on!

My brother and I (17 & 19 years old) did the Paris Segway tour and the Eiffel Tower tour with Fat Tire when in Paris for Christmas & NYE. If you want a fun way to spend three hours, DO THE SEGWAY TOUR! Honestly, it is the best way to see Paris, and so much fun! They give you a training session before heading out to see the Military School, Napoleon's Tomb, Pont Alexandre III, the Louvre, Jardins Toulleries, Eiffel Tower, and more! The tour guides are all great!

We also did the Eiffel Tower tour - it's worth the $ simply for the line-skip (as we were there at New Years the lines were insanity). Again our tour guide was fantastic with lots of fun anecdotes about the city!

If you're looking around for a tour (or tours) to do while in Paris, Fat Tire is the way to go!

We had great fun taking the Segway city tour. The guide, John, is friendly, knowledgeable and energetic, and kept everyone in spirit despite the cold. It is a great way of touring the city, and certainly welcoming after you have covered considerable distance on foot the previous day. Note though, that it all comes with a considerable price.

Having visited Paris before we wanted to experience the sights in a more interactive way. We felt that the Segway option would be a fun alternative and one that would readily engage our teenage children. We were so delighted with our half day tour as it was so much more than what we had expected. Our tour guide Costigan, provided us with a very informative and humorous tour around Paris. The Segways were easy to use and after a brief lesson we were all able to navigate our way around the streets of Paris with relative ease and comfort (despite the freezing weather!). As it happened I had injured my ankle two days prior, so it was a very easy way for me to cover a large area without the strain of walking. We would highly recommend it as it was a real highlight of our holiday.
