Paris Night Bike Tour, Boat Cruise on the Seine, and Wine!
Please note that we have a minimum group size of 4 guests for all tours in 2022. If your party is less than 4, you are still welcome to reserve, but we may reach out to modify your tour date or cancel your tour.
There is no better way to see the stunning city of Paris than on our famous Night Bike Tour. We’ll lead you through the bustling iconic neighborhood of St. Germain de Près as it comes to life for the evening with its iconic buildings and bustling cafés and restaurants.
Good to Know
Your tour meets directly at our office, located at 24 rue Edgar Faure, 75015. The closest metro station is Dupleix (line 6). The station La Motte Picquet Grenelle (lines 6, 8 & 10) is also quite close and provides more connection possibilities.
Our office is easy to spot from the street – you will see ‘Bike Tours’ & ‘Segway Tours’ signs in our windows. If you are following an online map, be aware that there is also an apartment building with the same street address as our office. If you end up there, simply walk up and around the corner against the direction of traffic (it’s a one-way street) and you’ll see our office in about 30 seconds.
Frequently Asked Questions
Questions About our Bikes/Biking in Paris
What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?
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.
This tour is perfect for intermediate bike riders. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Most of this tour is on roads and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that all guests feel confident with their riding ability. 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 try out some of our other tours first.
What are your bike options?
You can view our bike options here.
Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability
Is this tour appropriate for children?
Yes! Our Paris Night Bike Tour is a wonderful way for kids comfortable on bikes to discover Paris. We only ask that your children have been riding for a while, or, if they’re under 10, you can reserve a tandem for them. You can reserve the appropriate kid’s equipment during the booking process. Additionally, please note that this tour typically returns to our office between 11pm and 11:30pm.
If you’re unsure of the child’s riding confidence, we often suggest taking the Paris Day Bike Tour first in order to gauge their comfort on tour, and deciding later about the Paris Night Bike Tour. The Paris Night Bike Tour is slightly faster paced and involves more street traffic, whereas our Paris Day Bike Tour has a more leisurely pace and stays mostly on bike paths and sidewalks. Also, please note that children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.
You can use this bike chart to help you reserve the appropriate bicycles for your little ones.
- For children up to 10 years old or weighing under 32kg (70lbs), we have two-wheeled tag-along tandems. The child passenger sits on a seat and can pedal or coast. All riders weighing over 32kg (70lbs) must ride their own bicycle. This is not an option for adults or anyone over the weight or age limit.
- We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm).
- There is no additional charge for trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance.
- Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with hand brakes.
- Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation changes on varying surfaces including smooth gravel and pavement. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.
Is a helmet included?
In France, adults are not obliged to wear a helmet, however they are mandatory for children under 12. We have helmets of all sizes available in our office, free of charge.
How does the Paris Day Bike Tour compare to the Paris Night Bike Tour?
The Paris Day Bike Tour is where you’ll get the most information about Paris. 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.”
The Paris Night Bike Tour is simply beautiful. There is more riding involved and slightly less information than the Paris Day Bike Tour, but the city at night is fantastic! This tour also includes a boat cruise on the Seine with free wine included.
Most of our customers take both of our tours by taking advantage of our Day & Night Bike Tours – and you can save €12 when booking them together! However, if you’re not sure you want to take both, we suggest you take whichever one sounds most interesting to you, and then you can decide at that point if you enjoyed it enough to ride with us a second time. We think we know what your answer will be…
