This was a wonderful bike tour! Pierre is not only professional, but also kind, funny, and knowledgeable. He made our little group feel familiar almost immediately, so it felt like riding around with new friends. I loved getting to see the key parts of Strasbourg and hearing different historical and cultural facts from a local. Additionally, the bikes were in great condition and I appreciate that his tours have a limit on the size so things don’t get too out of control. I would definitely recommend this bike tour to others!

Excellent guide who gives you insight into another area of Strasbourg. Buildings that I never would have found on my own were part of your walk with the architecture history explained. It was a great tour and a definite one for lovers of architecture or those that want to explore other parts of the city.

Very interesting and entertaining tour. Lot of "hidden" insights into the city and the history. really enjoyed it.

Kudos to our driver last 20th April. He's very friendly and recommended good restaurants to eat too.

enjoyed the tour and the company. Christian was kind and knowledgeable.
