Why Choose Us
See why we're the best.
A young American created Fat Tire Bike Tours in Paris, France in May 1999 and since that first day, the company has had one main focus: to offer guests an unforgettable experience around the world’s most amazing city by bicycle. Fast forward 14 incredible years, hundreds of thousands of guests, rave reviews from media outlets and customers alike, and we are still holding strong to that focus.
From day one we’ve relied on our custom built three-speed beach cruisers with the most comfortable seats we can find to ensure that our bike tours are as leisurely as possible. We’ve tweaked tour routes, and added new options but the end result hasn’t wavered. We’re all about having fun in Paris on bikes!
Our bike tours were designed with the English-speaking traveler in mind (we are American owned and operated). We offer you the best orientation, an informative and entertaining guide and simply a great time. We are the experts. We have the know-how. After guiding hundreds of thousands of travelers through Paris since 1999, we have become the benchmark.
Fat Tire Bike Tours has become the largest city bicycle tour company in Europe. Not only do we offer bicycle tours, but we also created the first Segway Tours in the world in 2003, Classic Walks of Paris in 2005, and most recently our brand new Skip the Line tours with Easy Pass Tours in 2011. We are proud to be expanding these operations around Europe and the USA.
Our unique mix of ex-pat tour guides provide informative and entertaining tours, regardless of whether our guests have been coming to Paris for 30 years or just arrived in the past 30 minutes. Our office is a healthy mix of locals and transplants who all share a passion for the city of Paris, its people, its history and its future. Being able to interact with each tour group ensures that visitors to Paris are shown a wonderful overview of our amazing city, while being flexible enough to make sure that Francophiles aren’t bored with information they already know.
We take great pride in our customer service here at Fat Tire Bike Tours – Paris and the results can be seen in our high rankings at user-driven sites like TripAdvisor. If you have a less than excellent experience while on one of our tours, let us know and we’ll work with you to make things right.
There is no other tour company on the planet that has our experience, our unparalleled number of satisfied customers, and can offer you more tours in the world’s top destinations.
Taking part in one of our tours will be the most fun and insightful times you have in Paris. Why join us? It’s simple: See more, less effort, more fun. That’s our motto, and that’s why we’re so passionate about all of tours being the best way to see Paris.
More sights. Less time.
Our tours leisurely cover all the highlights in a relatively short amount of time. It takes less time to glide between the sights than walk, so… you’ll see more in less time!
We stop at all sights on the route, not just passing them by.
We never miss the chance for a photo-opportunity! You’ll listen to entertaining and insightful, NOT dull and monotonous, anecdotes of Paris at every stop. Feel free to question your guide on history, nightlife or lifestyle. Our entire staff is made up of Paris locals that will make navigating Paris a complete breeze after the tour.
We often joke, “If you break a sweat, then we are doing something wrong”.
Can you imagine covering several miles without a car and not feeling a bit exhausted? Well when you ride one of our custom, three-speed, beach cruisers with us, you’ll do just that. Our tours allow you to conserve your energy for the rest of your day while still covering tons of ground! Our tours will make you wish you had been biking the entire trip instead of walking mile after mile.
We want you to have the best time possible.
We believe that if you’re having fun you will absorb more information, so that’s the focus of tours and all aspects of our company. Our guides are not only very knowledgeable, but also personable, entertaining and masters of group chemistry. Also, from the moment you step foot in our office, you’ll be having a better time than if you were on foot or sitting in a bus! We are committed to providing every guest a Five Star Experience!
