We loved the guided tour through the most emblematic sites of Paris. Gabriel, who speaks perfect Spanish, guided us and told us about the peculiarities of each corner of the city. We stopped at the most important places and in the middle of the tour we took a short break to have a coffee. The walk lasted approximately 3 hours. We did it with our 12 and 14 year olds, and we were all very excited. We really enjoyed the bike ride. Thank you very much Gabriel!

Covered a lot of area on the bikes & guide had a lot of information historic & current , even with bike lanes you have to be very aware of traffic & pedestrians, bike seats not very comfortable, would recommend cycle shorts ,

A wonderful and exciting tour to get a great overall impression of Paris. Jasmine was a fantastic tour companion, guiding us safely through Paris on the bike with her vast knowledge and kindness. Thank you Jasmine!
