You just need to know how to ride a bike with confidence and enjoy cruising past the walking tourists.

Notre-Dame Cathedral, Musée d’Orsay and the Seine river

The Paris Bike Tour: the Highlights takes you to Notre-Dame Cathedral where you’ll learn about the famous gargoyles. You’ll then cycle to the Musée d’Orsay where the greatest impressionist paintings hang. Afterwards you’ll coast along the banks of the Seine River and stop to learn about the magnificently gilded Pont Alexandre III bridge.

Leaving the Seine River behind you’ll ride to the Hotel des Invalides and learn about the most famous general France ever had, Napoleon Bonaparte. Then you’ll experience a taste of the back streets of Paris and stop at the market street named Rue Cler for a lunch/snack break. Rue Cler has over 10 different cafés as well as food stalls with all kinds of tasty French specialities. You’ll have 30 minutes to explore the market and eat something enjoyable for your lunch.

How many people are in the group?
We think you’re special! So we want to be able to spend time with you during this tour. That’s why we limit the group size to no more than 12 people.
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.

Do we go inside the monuments?
Nope, this bike tour lasts only 4 hours and visits more than 10 amazing monuments.
Besides, bikes aren’t allowed inside the Louvre, Orsay or Eiffel Tower and we can’t bare to part with them!
Do you have smaller bikes, baby seats, tandems?

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.

How far in advance should I book?
This tour sells out fast! We suggest that you book your spot in our small group at least 2 weeks before you intend to cycle with us.
Do I have to be fit to do this bike tour? Is it only for sporty people?

This tour is for people who know how to ride a bike and want to have some fun! It is not a physically intensive activity and we have had people of all shapes and sizes take part in it and everyone has always loved it.

The route is 100% flat and the pace is not at all fast. One of the reasons we use our Blue Bikes™ is to be lazy and see more monuments in less time than a walking or bus tour!

Can I only do part of the tour?
No. We lend you one of our custom made Blue Bikes™ to be able to cycle on this tour. When we do that we are counting on you being able to cycle our Blue Bike all the way back to our bike hub where we will need that bike for someone else on another tour.
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.
