    Be prepared for exercise because you ride for about two hours straight . After the stop for the best ice cream you take the river cruise then ride back. Bring water/jackets

    Our favorite tour! The city looks so different and beautiful at night! We also spent a lot of time on the bicycles. The night cruise was also a nice end to the evening. Out tour guide Athena was awesome. It was a very personal experience. We rode to and viewed many of the tourist destinations, enjoyed bridge views and ice cream.

    This is by far the BEST way to see all the major sights in one go. Highly recommend. Our guides Denise and Thomas were excellent and had all kinds of unconventional bits of Parisian history to share with us!

    We booked this for the night we got into Paris, so we could stretch our legs after a 10 hour flight and see a little bit of the city. Rory was our guide and he was amazing! Gave good recommendations to places to visit, or eat. We were definitely exhausted afterwards, but so glad we did it!

    We thoroughly enjoyed Tom our guide and the overall experience.. The trip was well worth the fees paid and we saw so much more than expected! the bikes were in good condition and easy to ride… the gears certainly were a plus and the overall route took us over 4 miles with lots of chances to stop and see history right before our eyes. we were promised an email fo the bike route and some tips on travel in Paris but we never received these and would definitely like to have received them when we had been in Paris 🙁 other than that – the trip was excellent!

    This was the absolute favorite thing I did in Paris! I hadn’t been on a bike in years and I enjoyed cycling through the city and learning tidbits about the city. Tom, our tour guide also just happens to be from my hometown, so that was a nice surprise!

    The Evening Bike Tour was a lot of fun. The bicycles were new and our guide was quite knowledgeable. Paris is even more beautiful at night. I was a little concern for one of my fellow riders. It was difficult with traffic and red lights to keep our group together and one lady in our group was having mechanical issues and kept falling behind.

    This was a fun tour. Enjoyed the boat ride on the river, and the guide was fantastic. Very friendly, knew a lot of the history of Paris. Very well run and organized. The only reason for the 4 stars is that we found it difficult to cycle in Paris during rush hour and the Quai had tons of pedestrians, also hard to cycle through. As the night progressed, the crowds thinned out, and cycling definitely became more enjoyable. Again, there is nothing the guide or the company can do about the traffic, and they delivered a great tour.

    Our guide Rory was terrific. His knowledge and humor were highlights for the trip. The tour through the city really allows one to experience and see the city from a different perspective. We were in the bustle of the city and always felt safe and appreciated how we were able to get close to tour attractions. We also were fortunate to have Nick as a guide as well and whether you were in the front of the pack or the pack you could hear the guides and ask questions. The group size was kept to a small number enhancing the experience. Highly recommend Fat Tire Tours as a way to get to know Paris.

    We had a lot of fun on the ride. Our guide was very knowledgable about local history which made each stop interesting. Able to cover more ground than a walking tour and much much more fun than taking a bus. Trés bon!

    I’d highly recommend this tour on ones first day in Paris. It was such a fun way of getting around the city. The guided tour helps you get your bearings in place. You’ll have a better idea on where you want to spend your time. Our tour guide Mike was good fun and very organised. We were around ten of us and the group did not seem big at all, was very manageable. The Bikes were in good condition(and are very cutely named :)), gears on the bikes weren’t really required as most of the city roads were flat, except near the seine river where we had small bit of a ramp up. Overall good FUN !

    Great fun, and informative An excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Our guide, Simon, was jovial – his funny asides were all relevant, wish I could remember them all – and educational. I've been to Paris countless times but the stories and facts were nearly all new to me. I think Simon judged the group well, and tailored the talks accordingly. The cycling was easy – no hills on this particular route. I've given 4 stars for safety, as none of us took up the offer of bike helmets. But, hey, this is France, do as the locals do. Plus the rear brake on my bike was a bit iffy. Everything else, 5 stars. It wasn't all absolutely perfect of course, just nearer 5 than 4. Many thanks for an enjoyable 3+ hours.

    Super Guide + Good Bike = Great Tour! The tour was really fabulous! It was an unforgettable memory and the best in our 8-day journey in France. It was easy to find the meeting place and we were able to go to toilet nearby before the tour. Our guide welcomed us with a warm smile and we got nice bikes that suited our size with his advice. He was very kind, friendly and open-minded. Because he spoke easy English to us, Japanese tourists, we understood his explanation about history, interesting episodes and even jokes! Also we asked him many questions about famous places and life in Paris. That was very different from “Audio Guide”. As it was the day some VIP visited Paris, traffic was terrible. However we moved through the heavy traffic jam by bikes like flying Harry Potter on bloom!! Our guide led us safely and it was fun to follow him through the crowded crossing. We’d like to recommend this bike tour to the tourists from all over the world. We do believe good communication at sightseeing places is the most precious.

    Great way to visit a new city Tom was a fantastic guide ! I felt so bad that I didn't have any cash to be able to give him a tip. He earned it! Took us all over, answered all questions, gave great info on all sites. I am so glad I did this bike tour instead of going with another company.

    Fun way to see the city! We did this on our first night in Paris. It helped us stay awake and adjust to the time difference as well as get our bearings. You don't learn a lot about the history of the city or its features, but it was hilarious and gave us a sense of what we wanted to see more of.

    We got lucky and were the only two people on the English speaking tour so it was like a private bike tour. Our guide was really nice and knowledgeable, and she even took pictures of my wife and I at different spots. Even after having seen many sites previously, the tour offered new information about the history of different parts of Paris that you wouldn’t get from seeing it yourself. Definitely would recommend for anyone who is fully comfortable on a bicycle. If you’re not comfortable riding a bike or you get nervous with cars around you, do not do this tour. Coming from NYC, this felt normal for us, but I can see how it would be overwhelming for a lot of people (there we times when we even felt surprised we were riding on such busy streets). Also, this is definitely not a 3 hour tour. Block off at least 4 hours for this event.
