Paris Family-Friendly Private Bike Tour

Experience the Paris Family-Friendly Private Tour

Visiting Paris with children can be a daunting exercise. Let us take away this pressure of finding fun and exciting activities to keep your children occupied and join us on our Paris family friendly tour!

Enjoy a two-hour bike tour, which is a fun and excellent way to get an overview of Paris. It includes a circuit of the major monuments and museums, plus history about each one. The tour is great for children, keeping them entertained with fun facts to ensure they never forget this wonderful city! Safety is always a priority, which is why this tour follows sidewalks, bike lanes and parks almost the entire time. If you'd like to build in a break for food or a treat into your tour, we can add on a lunch in the wonderful Tuileries Garden or a hot chocolate break at the famous Angelina's Tea House, enjoyed by people of all ages.

Finally we recommend you finish the tour with an optional River Seine Cruise which will give parents time to sit back and enjoy the breathtaking scenery along the Seine whilst the kids play on the top deck and wave to all the passersby!

Please note that children under the age of three are free as long as they meet the weight restrictions, as they will ride in a baby seat which we will provide. Please see our bike options here to help decide which bike or tandem is the best fit for your child.

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    Our Paris Day Bike Tour is perfect for novice bike riders or those that haven't been on a bike in years. You should have average balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. We will be riding on bike lanes, through parks, and occasionally with traffic. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    If you're not sure how you'll fare, we invite you to come to our office about 30 minutes prior to your tour start time to try the bikes.
