Meet your guide in central Paris in the morning or afternoon (depending on option chosen), then hop onto your bike to begin your tour. The French capital is widely considered among the prettiest cities in Europe and a bike tour of Paris is a wonderful way to take in the top attractions in a fun and engaging way.

Spin past famous sights such as the Louvre Museum, Napoleon’s tomb, and Les Invalides, and listen as your guide sheds light on their history and heritage. Along the way, perhaps take time to capture the city on camera.

Cycle along the UNESCO World Heritage–listed banks of the Seine River, pause beneath the soaring spire of the Eiffel Tower and take a break at a café in the Tuileries Gardens. For a very reasonable price, you can enjoy traditional French snacks such as a strawberry pancake, a delicious chicken sandwich or creme brulée (own expense).

Take in famous sites including Place de la Concorde and the Orsay Museum then, head back to your starting point to conclude your Paris bike tour.

Engaging, informative and safe - Easy Rider!
MAURICE_T
, Aug 2022
The guide was very engaging, informative and fun to listen to. Her clear instructions kept us safe on the road. We learned a lot. The easy pace was appropriate for both kids and older adults. The only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a bit more time at each stop for photo opportunities.

We signed up our group of 8 for this tour and everyone had the best time! Matt was our guide and his knowledge of Parisian history was incredible and he made the tour really fun. A few of our guests were nervous because they hadn’t been on bikes in years but they felt like it was approachable, not overly difficult and we weren’t in traffic much so it felt safe. We got to see so many sights in such a short amount of time. It’s also a great way to burn off those croissant calories and get a tan while seeing Paris!

There was over an hour of “break” and bathroom stop in this 3 hour and 15 min bike tour. It’s poorly organized. Eliza was pleasant and informative.

This was a very enjoyable tour of many of the main sites in Paris. Biking through the city really gave you an idea of the cities layout, and we learned a bit at each of our stops. This is a wonderful thing to do for your first day in Paris. The guide was fun knowledgeable and kept the group moving very well.

Biking fun - need fewer in group.
Julie_Y

It is a great way to see a lot of Paris sights but would have been better in a smaller group. Our group was way too large - 16, to manage auto and pedestrian traffic. Our guide Amir was informative on the sights we were seeing and was willing to take photos for us. I would not do this with such a large group again.

Good introduction to Paris with basic explanations from guide
Stphanie_E
, May 2022
We loved the route, biking through calm and safe streets, passing by landmark monuments, and even biking along the Seine. Route very well designed. In terms of road safety we were very happy. Our guide was very nice. The explanations at the different stops are quite basic and concise. We would have loved more information about history, monuments, relation between historic events etc.

Lots of anecdotes and humor. The kids, age 10 and 12 really liked it. A nice tempo but at the same time you get a summary of lots of interesting landmarks. Sometimes the Indian heavy accent might have needed a little longer vowels in order to easier perceive the content in full. A sweet and great guide, I loved the humor and spirit.
