Took both the day ride and the night ride. Both were good but liked the night trip a bit better because the river cruise was really nice. Would definitely recommend - but you have to be able to ride a bike. Some of the tourist were pretty lame and it made the rest of us spend too much time waiting. Come on - yellow means hurry up not slow down!
Amazing guides. Paris is an amazing city by day and night captures a whole different city mood. I enjoyed this tour immensely and would highly recommend it especially if your traveling solo. A great way to meet other people. Do it.. Book it NOW!!
Friday 8:00 out to buy fruit for pre-breakfast. 9:00 Breakfast in café (croissant!). 10:00 Metro (all those stairs!!) 11:00 Start 4 hr bike tour (Guide an American from Texas) which includes lunch in the Jardin des Tuileries (Toilets at least half a km from the restaurant!). 15:00 finish bike tour so smart walk to Eiffel Tour to join ‘queue skipper’ group with guide (who was Spanish from Málaga). Lots of stairs there and vertigo kicked in so no higher than 2nd platform. Louise went to the top! Then back for quick snack before joining 4 hr night bike ride at 19:00, which included a cruise on the Seine. Then more stairs in the Metro and back to the hotel about 00:00.
It was the best way to see Paris. The guides were fantastic and made the day fun.
Great value for money.
This walk took place the day after we arrived in Paris lasted three and a have hours full of wonderful historical information. The guide a student of history and was both informative all questions were welcomed. This walk set us up to find our way around Paris.

Highly recommend both afternoon and evening bike tours of Paris. Afternoon tea in the Jardin Des Tuileries was lovely, especially the crepes and hot chocolate. It was lovely to see the Paris icons lit up in the evening and the river cruise which formed part of the evening bike tour was very relaxing.
We booked the day and night cycle tour/ cruise combination. Kevin was our afternoon guide and he had plenty of amusing stories as well as several facts about the places we visited. The riding wasn't strenuous at all, but we had to be serious crossing certain roads and moving en masse (dominating) through traffic. We went past the Eiffel Tower, place de la Concorde etc etc too many to list. A long stop over at the Tuileries Gardens, which were very tranquil and there were refreshments for sale.
Due to rain we decided to split our booking when it was offered and came back the next day for the evening ride and cruise. This did not include as much information- more riding instead, but still easy! After cycling around the Louvre, we enjoyed a stop on the lovely Ile St Louis for the nicest glacé I've ever had! Cruise -1hr-was great with wine and a sparkling Eiffel Tower to top off a delightful day! Back to base at 11pm. Would definitely do again!!!
I only did the Day Bike tour as I had to reschedule due to my luggage not arriving. This tour operator is a professional, well organized bike company. The pace was leisurely and the guide (Dawn) made sure everyone knew where we were going, especially when we had to ride the bike lanes in traffic. I have done other bike tours and this one is one of the best. You have lots of time to see the sights as well as take pictures. The company also allowed me to have a credit for the Evening Bike tour so when I come back to Paris, I can join the tour without having to pay again. That's A1 customer service! Thank you.
Different routes for the day and evening tours meant that we covered a lot of ground and sights - so a great way to see Paris. River cruise was a great way to finish the day!
Good tour - Despite a very wet day and start to our tour, our guide managed the group well and by the time we ascended the monument, the sun appeared. Would recommend this tour.
It is the best way to see paris, the guides there are extremely helpful, and are a wealth of knowledge, thanks for a great day
Very well done. Our guide, Mathilde, was very well-informed and enthusiastic (the latter is not easy when dealing with tourists every day I'll bet) and made the walk fun and interesting. It covers a lot in a short time and is a good way to get a quick overview of the city's main attractions.

Enjoyed the tour and our guide, Rick, was very friendly and accommodating. He did a wonderful job of keeping our group together and sharing information about the city and historical sites. I do have to say, though, that what is advertised on the site was not included in the tour- seeing stray cannonball, Paris' ancient city wall, secret gardens and passageways, the most famous (yet anonymous) French graffiti artist, houses of Jim Morrison and Victor Hugo, a hidden monastery in the center of Paris, favorite French bakeries, famous movie spots, and favorite back streets and local neighborhood. Don't get me wrong- we did see a lot of main sites and given great background information but it just didn't cover everything that was listed in their description.

The day tour was full of well-presented information and historical facts. It was a great experience and no time to be bored.
Night tour was more about cycling and relaxing on a boat trip afterwards. I was no that lucky with the weather. It was cold in the evening.
