Fat Tire bike tours in Paris

Jump to last reply

I don't usually offer unsolicited advice, but I felt I had to post about the two Fat Tire bike tours my daughter and I took while in Paris this summer. We absolutely loved them - they were the highlight of our trip.

I saw a blurb about the tours in a Paris blog I was following before our trip. DD really wanted to do it, so I agreed (although I am not a regular bike rider at all). For the "day" tour you meet under the Eiffel Tower at 3:00 p.m. On our first attempt, we were late and missed the tour. DD was upset, so we returned the next day and made sure we got there early. The staff walks you a few blocks to their office where you get your bike and they divide you (if necessary) into smaller groups. We had about 15 people of all ages in our group. The have a small supply helmets, but only my daughter and I wore them.

Anyone can do this tour - the bike riding is easy, there are relatively few hills, and the biking segments are broken up with stops to learn about the various sights. During the day tour you also stop for lunch. On the night tour (which I also highly recommend) you stop for ice cream and for a boat ride.

We ended up doing both the day and night tour and wanted to do the Monet's Garden and Versailles tours but they were booked. (You can just show up for the day and night tours, but need a reservation for Monet's garden and Versailles).

I am really glad we did these tours - it was a different way to see Paris and tons of fun to boot. If you are looking for something different to do, but still want an entertaining, informative tour, I highly recommend them!

p.s Our guides were great - Andre from Portugal was our daytime tour guide and Andrew from Wisconsin was our nighttime tour guide.
