This is probably the best tour we have every done! Exciting, informative, fun. We have been to Paris before and wanted to see something different. Olivier took us many places we did not even know existed and told us stories that brought them to life. His knowledge, charm and enthusiasm is amazing and engaging. The electric bikes take about 2 minutes to get used to and then you are off! Olivier keeps the group together and safe at all times, I was surprised how easy it was to navigate Paris traffic in the few times we were not on bike paths. We loved those bikes, and Olivier, and did not want it to end! This is the must do tour of Paris - as long as you can ride a bike...

We spent a whole afternoon with Olivier, who not only was a great and safe ebike guide, but the most knowledgeable tour guide we could have ever wished for. I travel with a 14 y/o teenager and the fact that she got so in love with the history and art of what she saw during this tour, just made the whole trip to Paris worthwhile. And also I need to say the ebikes give you the right kick to move you up or along, so that it is just the right amount of work. I just can’t say enough how much we loved the tour and how much we learned from Olivier! Merci Olivier! We will never forget this adventure.

This is a highlight of Paris. The bike tour needs to be experienced. Wonderful, relaxing and informative. Take in the sites of the city while learning history. Worth every Euro. #1 outdoor activity in Paris for a reason. Special shoutout to our tour guide Fabien. Very entertaining and passionate. Wonderful experience.

This was the most fun thing we did in Paris!
Do. This. First.
You will get a good sense of where things are, and you may want to go back and spend more time in some places, that you would never have found on your own. Our guide even gave us inside info as to when and how to avoid lines at the major tourist sites.
I had never ridden an electric bike before, but it's fun and easy to get used to. The Paris traffic can be a little intimidating, but you're mostly in bike lanes and our guide Fabian was great about leading us through intersections.
I booked through Air B&B, and we needed one more ticket which did not appear to be available, but Oliver replied to my email immediately and saved us another spot. Better to go through their website directly anyway.
Our guide Fabian was a fantastic story teller. You will love this tour!
