5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our village bike tour. Though truly it is more of the outskirts of Paris. It was adorable. You must be up for the challenge of the 10 mile ride. It was not that hilly, but you need to be skilled enough to keep up with the guide in some mild and not so mild Parisian traffic. Worth the time.

A fabulous experience cycling the old streets of Paris. I loved every minute and our guide was wonderful. We visited sights I would not have known about and learned many things about this beautiful city. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Paris.

Great way to tour some suburbs of Paris. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

This is a great tour for the price. You get to go off the beaten path and see things that are not on the main tourists lists. Jacque was a great guide - knowledgeable and fun. The ride did have some hills but it is totally do-able for even a beginning bike rider. Do it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2011

The tour is much different than all other bike tours in the city since it ventures out to the suburbs. Informative and a nice bike tour.

We had a a great time. It was nice to get out of the city. Our guide was fantastic!

4 star rating: Recommended October 2015

We really enjoyed this tour! Very few hills, and the tour was small, only about 12 of us. We were given lots of great information about the city by our tour guide, Rachel. She did a great job of keeping us all together and making sure we were all enjoying ourselves. My only quibble: do not take riders through narrow poles, crowds, or yellow lights in Paris traffic. There were a few scary moments.

A great tour of the Paris Villages! It was lovely to see less touristy parts of the city. Would have been nice to stop at some recommended places during the tour, rather just have them pointed out and perhaps never get back there. Would have fit more in if all commentary did not have to be in French and then translated to English.

A nice way of seeing the outer arrondissements in Paris. Stopped at a market and bought some beautiful ripe fruit. No hills on this tour. Leisurely ride.

Good length of trip, bikes and interesting guide. Only one thing, a break was included and we could have carried on.
