Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Spend an afternoon cycling through a truly local side of Paris. Make your way to central Paris’ 11th arrondissement in the afternoon, where you’ll meet your local guide and get fitted for a bicycle and helmet. For a unique twist, select a tandem bicycle at the time of booking to double up with a family member or friend.

The outer villages of Paris were once countryside farming landscapes or factory districts, and were incorporated into the expanding metropolis over time. Today, these neighborhoods are the scene of daily life for many Parisians and hold a unique and quiet charm away from the tourist bustle.

Throughout your 3-hour bike tour, expect to cover about 9-12 miles (15-20 km) at a leisurely pace, with a few small hills and some riding through moderate traffic. Along the way, your guide will point out passing attractions such as artists’ workshops, lesser-known monuments, scenic views and historic buildings. It’s a unique and active way to explore the real Paris!

We really enjoyed this tour! Very few hills, and the tour was small, only about 12 of us. We were given lots of great information about the city by our tour guide, Rachel. She did a great job of keeping us all together and making sure we were all enjoying ourselves. My only quibble: do not take riders through narrow poles, crowds, or yellow lights in Paris traffic. There were a few scary moments.

We thoroughly enjoyed our village bike tour. Though truly it is more of the outskirts of Paris. It was adorable. You must be up for the challenge of the 10 mile ride. It was not that hilly, but you need to be skilled enough to keep up with the guide in some mild and not so mild Parisian traffic. Worth the time.

A fabulous experience cycling the old streets of Paris. I loved every minute and our guide was wonderful. We visited sights I would not have known about and learned many things about this beautiful city. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Paris.

A great tour of the Paris Villages! It was lovely to see less touristy parts of the city. Would have been nice to stop at some recommended places during the tour, rather just have them pointed out and perhaps never get back there. Would have fit more in if all commentary did not have to be in French and then translated to English.

Worse part of our trip. Guide was not very talkative. He did not wait for slower bikers. Guide looked somewhat unkept. 3 hours of seeing the 'ghettos' of Paris. Was not worth the price paid. Do not waste your time. Hated every minute of this tour. Extremely disapointing

A nice way of seeing the outer arrondissements in Paris. Stopped at a market and bought some beautiful ripe fruit. No hills on this tour. Leisurely ride.

The bike tour was mostly avoidant of traffic and used bike paths, but there was about 20% of the time spend near cars on the roads. Our tour guide was patient but the number of people in the tour was too large, so it because difficult logistically to be waiting for other members of the tour as they got stopped by traffic lights.
