What a fantastic tour this was!! I initially booked it due to the high volume of great reviews, and now I see why - the tour takes you through some of the best highlights of Paris (Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, St. Germain, the Louvre) all while the sun sets in the beautiful background. Riding on the street was rather unnerving at times, especially since buses share the same lane as bikes! The boat ride was amazing, and the perfect end to the evening (besides, it ends with wine!) An incredible value for such a wonderful evening - a MUST book!!!
Fantastic tour, highlight of my 20 day Europe trip. 4 hours can be a bit much on a bicycle but the tour guide was amazing and really informative and he ensured everyone was relaxed and we took sufficient breaks so it didn't feel as strenuous as one would imagine it to be. We had a few elderly people on the tour as well, and they seemed to be having a great time. Great way to see Paris and we were able to complete all the main tourist attractions from the outside. Since we only had 3 days in Paris, this was more than enough sightseeing for us and a perfect introduction to first timers in Paris. It was raining and we didn't get to see the sunset, but the tour guide and the tour was fantastic that it didn't really matter whether it was raining or not.
Fantastic! You get to see all the BIG sights of Paris at night
Excellent! The night bike tour was one of the most enjoyable parts of my visit to Paris. A must do. Our guide was fantastic.
Great tour and super way to see the city! The night cruise was a really nice way to end the tour! Highly recommended !
We've been on bike tours before, this was AMAZING! My wife and I are in our 40's.
Amazing tour - such a great way to spend an evening in Paris. The guide (Max) was awesome, really friendly, funny and informative. It was lovely cycling through the streets at a relaxed pace, with pit stops for ice cream! There was a nice mix of people on the tour, so you wont feel out of place if you are travelling alone. The cruise at the end of the bike ride was a great way to relax and take in the city all over again.
An absolute MUST if you can ride a bike. We did the tour at the beginning of or trip which gave us our bearings in the city. Tour guide, Max, was hilarious and informative. Major thanks to Fat Bike Tours as they were awesome.
The highlight of our trip, Phil our tour operator was the best at navigating the Paris traffic and getting us to all the popular sights for pictures, and stories, the river cruise with wine was a added bonus as was seeing the Eiffel tower light show as soon as we boarded. Would highly recommend if you do only one tour make it this one!
The bike tour was very good. A great way to see a number of spots at night. Unfortunately the weather was quite cold, so we didn't really go outside during the boat trip, but the wine and company inside was very good.
Superb. The night bike tour is a fantastic way of seeing parts of Paris that we would not have accesed otherwise. Our tourguide was amazing. He made sure that we were safe, and took us to parts of the city that were beautiful. What makes the tour so much fun as well is the group that you are there with. We had such a fun time. Not to mention the wine and boat tour of the Seine at the end of the night were lovely. Make sure you get some of the hazelnut ice cream, you will know what I mean once you book the tour. Side note: If you do the tour, there is a neat stop where you and your special someone can sign a lock, put it on the bridge, and throw the keys into the Seine. If it is something you are interested in, bring a lock. On the second bridge that we did, there was a gentleman selling locks for 5 Euro, my husband and I bought one, and we will always have a small part of ourselves in the city of lights.
I had Eric as a tour guide and he was everything I felt our group needed. He was informative, taught us how to navigate through the city and assured us that our use of, "the palm of power", would help us to communicate with drivers. I was in Paris 6 days, did some AMAZING things, but this BY FAR was the highlight of my tour. Seeing Paris at night and then from the perspective of the river, there is a cruise included in this bike tour by the way. I highly encourage that you take this tour by yourself, with a loved one or your family. It was such a treat!
Foi a segunda vez que fiz esse tour e acho fascinante! Principalmente para ter uma visão de Paris como ninguém!!! A primeira vez que fiz, foi no verão, e pude conhecer a cidade durante o dia, e agora foi no inverno, e vi Paris iluminada! É fantástico! Indico para todos que forem passar uns dias nessa cidade maravilhosa!
The Paris night bike tour was the best fun. It was so fabulous speeding through the streets of Paris on our pedal pushers. The tour went for over 3 hours which was longer than I had anticipated but as long as you are prepared for a late night it is a great tour. Was not able to go on the tour on the Thursday night and the tour company were very accomodating in letting us change our booking to the following night. Very impressed with the service and our tour guide who was a local Parisian.
The highlight of our trip! See all the sights by night, cruise and drink wine, what more do you need to have a great evening?
The tour was good but you didn't receive a lot of information of the sights along the way, however the tour guide was available to answer any questions while on the boat tour about sights seen on the tour.
This experience was awesome. You do not really stop at very many of the sights and the traffic in Paris is frightening but the tour guides are fun, knowledgeable and make the experience a joy. Plus, you get to stop and have the BEST ice-cream I have EVER had in my life... This was the best night of my vacation.
A massive highlight for us in our 4 week trip!
We loved the whole thing even if it did rain.
Our tour guide, Ali, was amazing. She was very informative and hilarious - we had a great time with her and loved seeing Paris by bike at night!
It is a very organised tour, however, it is very dependent on the experience of the riders, one guide to 20 riders can be a little dangerous, considering it is late. And the tour took 5 hours in total, where we were a little unprepared. It can also be a little physically taxing. But, it is definitely a great way to see Paris at night. I would still highly recommend it, but just be prepared for the rides - have food before and prepare to be out for 5 hours.
Fantastic tour, loved it and would defo recommend the evening tour. Passing the sparkly Eiffel tower on the boat/bike was amazing
Very fun start to my Europe trip, except I hadn't ridden a bike for years and ended up with very sore and bruised legs the next day. One good tip is to start off in gear 1 for easy pedaling then gear 2. I think I enjoyed biking itself more than the sights because you really can't risk looking around unless you want to hit an abundance of obstacles such as pedestrians, cars (parked and moving), buses, taxis, stone dividers, fellow bikers. The biking was intense but if I survived, anyone can! The best part was biking through the Louvre like we own the place, interrupting a wedding photo shoot. Stu was, as expected, a great guide, but on many occasions I wondered if we just had to bike onto pedestrian walkways when there were bike lanes available...The boat ride down the Seine definitely make this tour worth the $ but remember to bring a jacket!
Second time I've done this tour and it's just an excellent way to see the sights of Paris! Took my husband as it was his first time in Paris and we did it the first night of our arrival which I highly recommend!
Good way to see the city by night. River cruise added value and gave an insight into the use of the river by Paresians at night. Nik our guide nurtured us expertly through the traffic and gave lots of interesting information. This tour helped me to connect with Paris in a way not possible by using usual tourist services.
