Experience Paris like a local.

View Paris through a local's eyes with this exclusive bike tour! We'll start our morning near a popular métro stop that joins the eclectic 10th district with the trendy 19th district. After picking up our bikes, we'll cycle along the canal where we might witness a pétanque game in action or new street art being made in the moment. We'll continue to Buttes Chaumont Park where we'll enjoy a stroll around the waterfall and suspension bridge.

Next, it's on to the highest natural point in Paris, Belleville Park. You'll have a breathtaking view of the city and a chance to see how Parisian truly live. Continuing through the bustling neighborhood, we'll enter Place de la République, a popular meeting area for social movements, skaters, and musicians. Finally, we'll enjoy a break at a local park where you can pick up a craft beer or natural wine at a speciality shop.

  • Expand/Collapse How does this tour compare to the Paris Day Bike Tour ?

    The Paris Day Bike Tour is where you'll get the most information about Paris and see the major sites such as the Eiffel Tower from the Champ de Mars, the Louvre, Place da la Concorde, and more. We hear one of two comments most often after the Paris Day Bike Tour. Either, "Wow, I'm so glad I took this because now I know what I'm going to do the next few days while I'm in the city" or we hear, "I can't believe I'm leaving tonight because there's so much more in Paris that I didn't know about and I've missed it all."

    Our Local Paris Bike Tour explores a completely different part of Paris than our standard Day Bike Tour, and we have customers who take multiple tours during their time in Paris. We guarantee you will have a completely unique experience on each tour!
