Join our Evening Bike + Boat Tour and you’ll fall in love with the “City of Lights” as you cruise around it on a Blue Bike™ and a bateau mouche on the Seine River. Our tour takes you to the best lit monuments in Paris, to share the most beautiful sights of Paris at night!
Among other things you'll discover the secrets of the Louvre's great glass pyramid, the deluxe of the Champs-Elysées, and marvel at the Eiffel Tower's illuminations as it twinkles at night. Then boarding the boat you'll cruise under many enchanting bridges such as the gilded Pont Alexandre III and have an outstanding view of Notre Dame Cathedral and her flying buttress’ will your guide shares stories about the monuments you can spot from the boat.
FYI: During certain months the sun does not set until quite late, so this tour can end up taking place partially in the daylight.
On our Evening Bike and Boat tour we focus on showing you the best lit monuments in Paris and giving you a great night out in our city. We’ll show you the heart of the city and all of the amazing museums and monuments when the crowds have abandoned them and their facades are glowing with light.
Cycle to the Musée d’Orsay and learn about the great impressionist artists Monet and Van Gogh, then coasting down to the banks of the Seine River you’ll see the young Parisians enjoying their “Apero” snacks and drinks with their feet dangling over the river.There you’ll be able to have an ice cream or crêpe and take a moment to enjoy the view of the golden beams and bolts that make up the Eiffel Tower.
Board the boat with your guide and taking a seat you’ll start the 1 hour cruise up and then down the calm Seine River. The magic of the twinkling lights, combined with your guides fun stories, are sure to make the cruise a highlight of this tour.
You’ll cruise under the gilded Pont Alexandre III bridge and then have a view of the French Parliament building with its Greek columns lit up. You’ll pass under a bridge built with the recycled stones of the famous Bastille Prison and then see the Academie Francaise building illuminating the lovers on the Pont des Arts bridge.
Under the hundreds of stone faces which King Henry had carved into the Pont Neuf you’ll search but not find two alike. Then, you’ll enjoy a magnificent view of Notre Dame Cathedral. Sailing alongside the Cathedral you’ll see her intricate rose windows and delicate arched flying buttresses awash in light.
Continuing on you’ll see Parisians dancing on the Quai Saint Bernard and picnicking at the foot of the twinkling Hotel de Ville building. You’ll pass under many more beautiful bridges and alongside many other stunning facades such as the Conciergerie with its impressive castle towers where Marie-Antoinette was imprisoned.
Once the boat cruise is finished, on your Blue Bike™ you’ll cycle along the famous Champs Elysées Avenue and have a fabulous view of the Arc de Triomphe at the top of the tree lined avenue. The final awe inspiring experience of this tour happens when you arrive in the vast courtyard of the majestic Louvre and cycle around the giant glass pyramid of Pei shining with white light like a beacon in the night.

Possibly the best part of the trip
We did the nighttime bike tour, which was possibly the best part of our trip. There were only seven people in our group, which was a plus. Our guide, Camille, was fun, friendly, knowledgeable and patient. It was quite magical to ride along the banks of the Seine and see Paris all light up. The included boat tour was a nice bonus. Many photo opportunities along the way. Only one negative: we enjoyed ourselves so much that we wanted to do more bike tours with Blue Fox, but they were sold out for the next few days!Read this review on Tripadvisor
We visited Paris for 3 nights and decided to start our trip with an evening bike tour which included an evening cruise. I can hands down say it was the highlight of our holidays. Our tour guide Jean Baptist was excellent and answered every question that was thrown at him. JB is a fantastic guide and really made the tour an enjoyable experience. We saw all the major sights of Paris in 3 hours in the most enjoyable way possible. Would highly recommend this tour it was just a pity we didn't have time to do another.Read this review on Tripadvisor
We loved the bike and boat evening tour. JB was our guide. Perfectly organised and will absolutely repeat next time in Paris. Perfect also if you have kids because other bike tours only accept kids above 12. Our 9 year old daughter was riding attached to her dad's bike in a tandem, so it was perfect.Read this review on Tripadvisor
