Cruise through Paris as the day fades to evening, and see the sites without the crowds on our Paris Night Bike Tour. Finish out your day with a Seine River Cruise, complete with wine and stunning photo opportunities of the Eiffel Tower, sparkling against a dark sky. We hope that you'll join us as we ride across town, stopping at landmarks such as Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle to learn about their historical and cultural importance. Ride along the river and see the famous bouquinistes before crossing the popular Pont des Arts. Glide through the courtyard of the Louvre and feel like one of the Kings or Queens who once called it 'home'. Taste authentic Berthillon ice cream, made on Ile St. Louis, where we'll stop and taste it just steps away from where it was first invented. Finally, enjoy a relaxing boat ride and marvel as the City of Light lives up to its name.

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.
We are committed to keeping our tours safe, and that goes beyond the biking. All high-touch surfaces, like bike seats, handlebars, or shared equipment like helemts, are sanitized before and after each use. Guests are not required to enter our office to check in, although they are welcome to do so provided they wear a mask. Masks may be required during certain stretches of the tour; your guide will inform you of the latest local restrictions before your tour departs. We will enforce social distancing whenever possible, and provide guests with hand sanitizer and masks should they be needed. We want you to enjoy Paris, so we'll do whatever we can to make the experience less stressful and safe
Your tour meets directly at our office, located at 24 rue Edgar Faure, 75015. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure.
We ask that guests eat prior to the tour and/or bring snacks along, as we will not make a dedicated food stop. Dinners in Paris can stretch out for hours, and the golden hour is, well, only an hour! We want to maximize our time out and about, so we have intentionally not included a dinner stop. We will, however, stop for Berthillon ice cream on Ile St. Louis, and we recommend bringing some Euro cash along as there is a limit to use a card. You can also bring a snack along to be enjoyed during the Seine River Cruise.
This is a great tour for anyone who feels comfortable on a bike! We do cover more ground than on our Paris Day Bike Tour, but we maintain a steady pace throughout. Riders should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Much of this tour is on roads and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that everyone riding their own bike feel confident in their own ability. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the key to the group staying safe. If you're still a bit nervous, we recommend signing up for our Paris Day Bike Tour first.
This tour will finish after dark, and we typically return to our office between 11pm and 11:30pm. The metro runs until 12:30am Sunday-Thursday and until 1:30am on Friday & Saturday, and nearly any place of accommodation within Paris can be reached via metro within 40 minutes.
We have extremely comfortable and adjustable city bikes with step-through frames. They're great for all sizes as the seats and handlebars can be adapted to fit your height. 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. We do have a number of smaller bikes for younger children; you can select the bike required for your children when checking out.
Absolutely! We've got the wine, the glasses, and the bottle opener. Plus, we've got your tickets for the Seine River cruise!
Definitely. Our Paris Night Bike Tour is a great way for kids to engage with the city. Our only request is that your children be comfortable on bikes, or, that you reserve the appropriate equipment for them when checking out. You can see the height, weight, and recommended ages for our tandems, trailers, and baby seats after selecting a children's ticket and scrolling down. If your child and older and won't require a smaller bike, simply leave that section blank. Our small adult bikes are usually a good fit for kids 10-12 years old, depending on height.
Yes! We're happy to include a helmet free of charge should you wish to wear one, but please note that it's only mandatory for those under 12 years of age.
Yes! We have a cold water for sale in our office, and we have a water fountain where you can fill up your reusable water bottle for free. We also have reusable water bottles that you can purchase and use. Water bottles easily secure to the luggage rack of each of our bikes.
Unfortunately, this tour does not allow enough time to enter any of the stunning museums and monuments that we'll see on tour. Plus, most will be closing by the time we get started. Our guides are eager to give you all of the tips and insider information to skip lines and access the museums that interest you most later in your trip.
We would love to accommodate special requests like this, but we will need everyone to stick together as a group from the time of departure until we return to our office. We may not always have a staff member available at our office, and the guide is required to stick with the group. We wouldn't want you riding all by your lonesome in Paris. Plus, many say that the boat ride is the most fun!
If you have family members that don't feel comfortable riding a bike but want to join for the boat ride, we can absolutely accommodate that. Bring them to our office at the start of the tour so that we can give them boat tickets, directions, and an approximate time that we'll be at the boat. If you can stay in contact with them via text message, that's even better. We often have family members join at the boat, and they still have a wonderful evening.
Our Paris Night Bike Tour is approximately 8.2 miles (13 km) long. This tour typically wraps up between 11pm and 11:30pm.
We're happy to offer free changes and 100% refund up to 24 hours before tour. Failure to cancel a reservation at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure may result in forfeited travel funds. Fare difference may apply.
This tour runs rain or shine, but we have rain ponchos available for purchase in our office for anyone that may have forgotten their rain jacket. We will gladly buy the ponchos back if they are not used during your tour; it's a nice little rain insurance policy that helps you enjoy your tour!
