My wife and I took this tour and found it a great way to be introduced to the lesser known areas of Paris such as some Medieval courtyards with original cobbled streets and some beautiful Parisian gardens. We are not regular bike riders or overly fit and found the going very easy. Our tour guide, Christian, was very well versed with the city and very easy to understand. It was quite surprising how quick and easy we moved from area to area so it is no wonder lots of Parisians ride push bikes. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has ever ridden a bike no matter how long ago.

Two friends and I took this tour last weekend and we can't recommend it enough! Our guide Paul was friendly and informative, not just telling us the typical information but also unique facts about the city. We saw many places, famous (such as the Louvre and Notre Dame) and less so (a cannonball in the side of a building.) Don't be put off by the cycling, it is very leisurely and mainly on bike routes! Very good value for money, a must-do if you are in Paris! Also take the tour at the start of your trip as you will no doubt see places on the tour that you want to visit again afterwards! :)

Myself and 10 other ladies went on the the bikeabout tour in Paris on a snowy Sunday morning as part of a hen party weekend. All of us had 'such fun'! Winding around cobbled streets, circling round the glass pyramid at the Louvre with a simplified history lesson on the side was fantastic. Stopping off at a cafe for a delicious hot chocolate topped it all off. The guide was friendly and we all managed the route, even the parts where there was more traffic. An excellent and fun way to spend a few hours seeing the sights of Paris.

We booked a family tour around Paris. Our tour guide was so well informed and could answer all our questions. We saw so many interesting sights that we would have never found without him. It was the highlight of our visit to Paris. My husband and son particularly enjoyed cycling through the archway into the main courtyard of the louvre and cycling past the glass pyramids. I loved the Place de Vosges which was beautiful. Thank you for a great experience.
