The best way to spend your evening in Paris

On our Paris Night Bike + 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.

An unforgettable experience : the boat cruise

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.

Cycle the City of Lights at night

The Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre

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.

If you’d like to join this tour and another bike tour of Paris we suggest joining our Latin Quarter + Le Marais Bike Tour so that you will experience a more local side of Paris. Discounts are offered if you book multiple tours with us (see Special Offers).

Frequently Asked Questions

How many people are in the group?
We like making memories with real people in a personal way. For this reason we keep this tour group to no more than 12 people. (Which is ½ the size of our competition group for their Night Bike Tour.)
What is the Cancellation Policy?

Lots of things can happen that make a person need to change their plans. So you’re welcome to cancel this tour up to 24 hours before it starts and we’ll give you a full refund.

If you plan out your travel time poorly, arrive late, and miss your tour we will feel sad that you missed your tour but we will not issue you a refund.

How far in advance should I book?
This small group tour fills up very quickly! You should make sure to get your spot booked in the group at least 10-12 days before you want to cycle with us.
The date that I want to join this tour is full, is there a waiting list?
Yes. When a tour is fully booked you can still click on the date and join the waiting list. If anything frees up we'll contact you. Please note it is not possible to click on a date and join the waiting list if we have no tours running at all that day.
Do you have tandems for adults, kids’ bikes, and baby seats?

Yes, we’ve got 2 different smaller sized bikes for kids and adults who are too short to use our Blue Bikes™.

We have baby seats for kids that are between the ages of 1 and 3 years old (max weight 22 kg (48 lbs)).

We also have some cool Burley tandem attachment bikes that are suitable for little kids who are too big for the baby seat but too small to cycle on their own (max weight 38 kg (85 lbs) - max height 137 cm (4 ft 6 in)).

We do NOT have tandem bikes that are suitable for two adults. All adults who join our tour must know how to cycle on their own with confidence. Please do not book this tour if an adult in your party is unable to cycle. We do not have any way to include them in this tour.

Find out more about our bikes here.

Can I do only the cruise or only the bike tour but not both together?

No, we have tried to accommodate requests of this sort before and it has always caused a huge headache for the guide to organize a meet up during the tour, frustration for the other tour participants, and in general more unhappiness than happiness.

So, no, we will no longer try to accommodate people who desire to do only part of our Night Bike Tour with Boat Cruise.

What time and where does the tour end? Will I have enough time to take the metro home?

This tour will finish at 10pm on the Ile de la Cité very close to the metro stations: Cité, Pont-Neuf, and Saint Michel - Notre-Dame. That means that you will have no problem using the metro to get back to wherever you are staying in Paris.

The Paris Metro system runs until after 12:30 midnight on weekdays and until 1:30am on weekends. Most metro trips, inside of Paris, last no more than 20-30 minutes.
