“Great morning in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were in Paris for 4 days and this tour really gave us an overview of the whole city (and helped us determine areas we wanted to explore more). Our guide was very informative and I liked that she was able to personalise her tour and tell us her thoughts and stories about Paris, for this reason it doesn't appear as though she has done the tour a million times :) An excellent experience and highly recommended.

“Great way to see Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Best tour and tour guide. While in paris, we also took a night tour with Fat Tire Bike Tours, but the Bike About Tour was the best one by far. We went through the back roads of Paris, and had a blast. I can't remember the name of the tour guide (British with an architeture degree), but if you have a chance ask for him.

“Brought Versailles to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We did a Bike About Tour of Versailles with Amber and it was a highlight of our trip to Paris. Amber was SO knowledgeable in the history of the period that she taught us so much. She was also so much fun that she really brought the characters and events surrounding Versailles to life. We biked around a lot of the town and covered much more of the grounds of the chateau itself than we could have on foot alone. This was an amazing day!

“The best family activity in Paris.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

My family of four, kids 10 and 14, had a fantastic few hours. We went places that we never would have otherwise known about and it was interesting for the kids. Super fun and brilliant guide.

“Must-do activity in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

I went on the tour with my wife last week and it was the highlight of my time in Paris. In just a few hours, we were able to see a great variety of the city - everything from the tourist areas to small backyard gardens. This is your chance to learn about the real Paris that people live and work in and not just the tourist areas. The guide was great, and it felt more like riding around the city with friends than one of those cheesy tours.
