What we’ll do

"The best thing to do as soon as you land in Paris" is the most common phrase in our reviews!
Get up close and personal with the most famous monuments in Paris intimately (maximum 6 guests per Parisian) on your very own Velib’ bike that you get to keep for the rest of the day!
We stop every 5 minutes or so for stories, photographs and all the questions you can think of!
If you choose the 9h30 or 14h30 ride, we’ll stop at the wealthiest neighborhood in Paris, Notre Dame, the love lock bridge, Louvre Museum, an old highway turned into a park with bars, floating gardens, and street art, Paris’ most beautiful bridge, and more! This leg ends with the best views of the Eiffel Tower.
If you’d prefer the 11h30 or 16h30 ride, we’ll stop at wedding photographers' favorite Eiffel Tower’s viewpoint, Champs Elysees, Lady Di's memorial, an abandoned tunnel, the oldest house in Paris, hidden villages and much more!
Can't choose? Book the 9h30 or 14h30, and we'll give you a 20% discount to come back! Just let us know when we meet! We use the public bikes, so you can keep biking on your own afterwards!

We had a charming young guide called Leo who showed us around all the interesting parts of Paris within a rideable distance from our hotel. We loved the Food shops, the historical buildings, gardens, cafes, restaurants etc. but especially enjoyed hearing about life in Paris firsthand from someone who has lived there all his life. We loved Le Marais and explored it further on our second day. We found cycling in Paris a safe and easy way to get around and were impressed with the tolerance and courtesy Parisians exhibit towards cyclists. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get an authentic experience of Paris that is tailor made to your interests.

I scheduled this experience for my first morning in Paris after arrival, to help beat the jetlag, get me out into the fresh air, and reorient myself to the City of Light. I was a little bit anxious, being a 'woman of a certain age', and someone who does not bike in my real life. After a brief email interaction, I was reassured, and thoroughly enjoyed my morning with Marc. I know Paris pretty well, but it looks entirely different from the seat of a bike! My guide was consistently good-natured and the tour was perfectly adapted to my abilities and interests. I saw quite a few things that were new to me, and I enthusiastically recommend this tour to ... well, absolutely anyone. Marc followed up with a long email list of suggestions for the remainder of a Paris visit, which could be very helpful to someone who does not know the city. Overall, an unusual and interesting experience and highly recommended!

I was told that Paris was dangerous with unfriendly people. But what I experienced it's the other way around. With Anto's Paris it's like having friend showing you around in Paris. Not a touristy side but the beautiful side of Paris. Leo was our guide and he was showing us around using the bike. I was really having good time to spend in one day, the best tour I've ever experienced.
