FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    The tour meets at the exit of the Dupleix Métro station (line 6). Look for our 'Fat Tire Tours' sign.

  • Expand/Collapse Is the lunch in the Tuileries Gardens included in the tour price?

    No, the cost is not included for the lunch, snack or drink at the café. Please bring cash in euros or a credit card on tour with you.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children, and if so, what are your bike options?

    Absolutely! We have loads of families and we're a great family activity. We offer multiple bike options for children depending on their age, size, and riding ability. Please keep in mind that children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour. You can view our bikes here:

    • For children up to 12 years old or 45kg (100lbs) without good bike handling skills we offer 2-wheeled tandems that allow the passenger to pedal or coast, without having to maintain a high level of balance. All riders over 45kg (100lbs) must ride their own bicycle. We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm). Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
    • There is no additional charge for trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. 
    • Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with both hand brakes and pedal brakes.
    • Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation changes on varying surfaces including smooth gravel and pavement. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.
  • Expand/Collapse Is a helmet included?

    Yes! Helmets are optional, but we have sizes for all ages available in our office.

  • Expand/Collapse Can we buy water at your office?

    Yes! We have a cold water in our office, and all of our bikes come equipped with luggage racks so that you can take it with you on tour.

     

     

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour offered in any other languages, or only English?

    All scheduled tours are in English, but private tours can be scheduled in other languages.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    Unfortunately, 3.5 hours does not give us enough time to enter any of the sites that we see on our Day Bike Tour.  This tour is designed to enjoy the city from a broad perspective and come away with a greater understanding of its history and layout.  After the tour, however, we have lots of information in our office in regards to museum opening times and the best way to see them.  Your tour doesn't end when the biking is over; we are also a full-service English helpdesk ready to answer your questions!

  • Expand/Collapse Can I leave the tour early?

    Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate special requests like this on our public tours.  Once the tour begins we ask that you stay with the guide and the group until the end.  If you're interested in something shorter, please inquire about a private tour.

  • Expand/Collapse How long is the ride?

    Our Paris Day Bike Tour covers approximately 6.5 miles (10.5 km).

     

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    We are happy to offer full refunds for our Day Bike Tour if the reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours (3 days) before the scheduled tour.  We do not offer refunds for any reason once we are within 72 hours of the scheduled tour. 

     

  • Expand/Collapse What is your weather policy?

    Our tours run rain or shine, and we have rain ponchos available for purchase in our office for anyone that needs them. We will gladly buy the ponchos back if they are not used during your tour. We encourage all guests to consult the weather forecast and to dress accordingly.

     

  • Expand/Collapse How does the Paris Day Bike Tour compare to the Paris Night Bike Tour?

    Many customers want to know the difference between our Paris Day Bike Tour and Paris Night Bike Tour. First, the routes and information provided are completely different.

    The Paris Day Bike Tour is where you'll get the most information about Paris. We hear one of two comments most often after the Paris Day Bike Tour. Either, "Wow, I'm so glad I took this because now I know what I'm going to do the next few days while I'm in the city" or we hear, "I can't believe I'm leaving tonight because there's so much more in Paris that I didn't know about and I've missed it all."

    The Paris Night Bike Tour is simply beautiful. There is more riding involved and slightly less information than the Paris Day Bike Tour, but the city at night is fantastic!

    Most of our customers take both of our tours by taking advantage of our Day/Night Bike Tours 50% Off Combo. However, if you're not sure you want to take both, we suggest you take whichever one sounds most interesting to you, and then you can decide at that point if you enjoyed it enough to ride with us a second time. We think we know what your answer will be...

  • Expand/Collapse What is the number to call if I am lost and trying to find the meeting point?

    If you are having difficulty finding the meeting location for your tour, please call us at +33.1.85.08.19.76 and our staff will be happy to help you find your way.

Paris Day Bike Tour Reviews

Paris Day Bike Tour - 11am is rated 4.8766 out of 5 by 632.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paris Day Bike Tour We got off of our flight from the US at 6am, but didn't want to miss a minute of our time in Paris, so we booked the 11am bike tour. It was the best decision we made! Alexandria was AMAZING. The historical sites we visited and the interesting facts she shared gave us a wonderful overview. She even stayed behind in the office to make recommendations for "local" places we should visit - including a little bakery on a hill that had the best croissants I've ever tasted. She was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to see Paris When my son first suggested doing a bike tour in Paris, I thought he was mad, but I'm so glad he managed to persuade me. The tour was extremely well planned, with every part of the journey planned in detail. This meant that we never felt unsafe, as our guide told us exactly what to do and where to position ourselves in the road. Most of the trip was on cycle paths or quiet streets anyway. Our guide was interesting to listen to and the pace of the tour was relaxed. You don't need to be ultra fit to do this tour or a keen cyclist. We enjoyed it so much, I'm hoping we can go to Barcelona some time so we can do the tour there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fat Tire Bike Tours and 'Beat the Queue' My family only had a short stay possible and so we took advantage of several packages 'Eiffel Tower beat the queue', day and night bike tours. I couldn't have made a better choice. Everyone thought the tours, Paris and the staff were just great. Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tour! My husband and I had never been to Paris and wanted to learn a little about the history. The bike tour did just that! We learned so much French history in a short amount of time and the way it was explained was great - nothing like learning it in your high school or college classes. Our guide was Chris from Australia and he did an amazing job. We have already recommended doing the tour to our family and friends since we have returned. Excellent time!
