My family enjoyed riding...
Paola_B, Aug 2022
My family enjoyed riding through Paris, it was fun and safe. Children can definitely keep up and the guide made sure they were ok. The thing is, our guide was long-winded and told stories that had little to do with Paris, more about his friends and random opinions. He also enjoys stereotyping and doing imitations. For the French it was “the French love chopping heads off” which I interjected with “used to!!” (For my kids) and for Americans it was making guns with his fingers, pointing them in the air and “shooting”, then yelling “get off my property before I kill you”. We are American so I said, “nooooo” hoping he'd get the hint and stop. When he did it again I said “where we’re from it’s not like that, we’re not those American” and he would not stop. It happened at least 3 times. He also said we had a 5-year old in office (meaning Trump) which may be accurate lol but is not appropriate on a tour with kids and two groups of Americans. He also gave us choices “do you want to see the Mosque or the Roman amphitheater?” When both are clearly on the itinerary. The tour is fun and the guide meant well, but we can do without the harsh stereotypes and judgement.

A good balance of cycling and history with someone who knows

Our upbeat guide kept the cycling momentum going taking us to colorful and key neighborhoods. She shared history at different stopping points while weaving in impressional moments which brought her stories to life.

Great ride & guide
Scott_K, Jul 2022
Great tour. Ingrid was lovely, a fun, charming, and interesting guide. Our family enjoyed riding through parts of Paris that we wouldn’t have seen on our own.
Wonder what that hole in the wall is - huh
Namrata_B, Jul 2022
Early on we were greeted by a tour coordinator who was great (sorry I cannot remember the name). Taylor, our tour guide, was an excellent and kept us all entertained with stories and cool facts like Jim Morrison’s apartment and what was that hole in the wall with a date. She even fixed the chain on the bike for my daughter, when it came off during the tour. Loved the ice cream shaped like a flower in the Latin quarter. Cool tour and I would recommend it.
Lovely, sporty way to see Paris
Annie_M, Jul 2022

Joshua was our guide. He gave us a lot of extra information about Paris that i did not know. He constantly made sure we were safe. I was nervous about doing this tour but ended up having a fantastic time. In fact I think it has been the highlight of my Paris trip
Alan is a great guide
Linde_H, Jul 2022
