Dawie pronounced Davie was great! He was fun and entertaining. I enjoyed this tour a lot. I went to the Shakespeare bookstore and got the Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo as he recommended. I’m excited to read it. I didn’t know he’s also the author of Les Misérables. Thank you Dawie! :)

Nice bikes, enthusiastic tour guide with a lot of knowledge. An afternoon full of hidden spots of Paris that we hadn't seen yet despite having been there many times.

The guide, Alberto from Mexico is really good in storytelling. His stories about Paris and France made me curious about the history side of this beautiful city.

Super great informative tour. Not too strenuous. Please see the dam and Louvre and learn a lot about Paris and its history.

It was a great walk and the guide Dawie (the south african guy) was super helpful and knowledgeable.
