Private & Customizable Tours

Let us help you customize your stay in Paris!  While all of our tours offer you an opportunity to discover the city of light, a private tour will guarantee a personally crafted itinerary based on your interests. Whether you’re traveling with your family, friends, a school group or on a corporate weekend, we can help you organize your dream-trip.  Pick any number of our a la carte excursions and we’ll help you pair them together to create a unique experience just for you!

Our public tours are a wonderful way to discover Paris and nearby destinations, such as Versailles, Monet’s Gardens, and the Loire Valley. We have limited group sizes that allow you to get the most out of your day, but nothing compares to a 100% privatized tour. Tell us what you want to see, your time limitations, and any special interests, and our private tours department will handcraft your ideal day.  

Fat Tire Tours can now offer you other options that are not on our website such as car services, hotels, special access to attractions, and family tours. Please use the form below if you are interested in getting more information. 


What people are saying and posting


  • Expand/Collapse Do you offer tours in languages besides English?
  • Expand/Collapse What’s included on a private tour?

      Almost anything you’d like!  We will include all necessary equipment (i.e. bikes, helmets, tickets, etc.) for your tour, transportation costs (for any of our tours outside of Paris), and a knowledgeable guide.  Lunch/dinner is usually not included unless specified.

  • Expand/Collapse How much is a private tour?

     All of our private tour requests are individually analyzed by our private tours department, and quotes are given based on a number of factors including tour guide availability, booking time, season, ticket availability, bike/Segway availability (if applicable), and group size.  Custom-built tours or smaller private group tours will usually cost more than our public tours given the planning time, any special requirements or requests our guests may have, and the privatization of one or a few of our tour guides.

  • Expand/Collapse I’d like to skip the line at the Eiffel Tower; do you have tickets that I can purchase and pick up at my leisure?

    Yes and no; while we do have priority access tickets available for the Eiffel Tower, all guests using this entry must be accompanied by a guide.  We are able to help you book a private skip-the-line Eiffel Tower guided tour.

  • Expand/Collapse I would love to include a great Parisian restaurant in my private tour; is that something that you can organize?

    We would love to direct you to some of our favorite places, but we’ve learned that not everyone has the same taste buds!  We have an ever-changing list of great bistros, coffee shops, dessert havens, restaurants, and wine bars that we are more than happy to share with you; unfortunately we are not able to make a reservation for you at this time.

  • Expand/Collapse My travel plans won’t allow for me to join your public tour; could I organize a shortened version of this?

     Absolutely!  Our private tours department is happy to work around your existing schedule to help you create a unique experience that fits with your travel plans.  Our tours can be shortened or extended depending on your availability.

  • Expand/Collapse We are coming to Paris for a special occasion! Is there anything that you can do to help us celebrate?

    Of course!  Whether you’re here for a birthday, anniversary, or another important event, we would love to help you make this a unique memory!  We can organize to have flowers delivered, champagne, a cake, a photographer, and plenty of other surprises!
