Description

There’s a Paris that everyone recognises from the films and instagram snaps, but there’s also a Paris that remains secret and undiscovered, even for Parisians!

My aim is to introduce you to the fascinating unknown stories and hidden gems that the city has to offer, travelling back in time through the meandering backstreets of two of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, the charming Marais and the ancient Latin Quarter.

We’ll spend our time together getting lost in hidden, often unexplored parts of the city.  I will talk you through Paris’ epic history, as we zigzag through the maze of medieval streets, covered passages from times begone, stunning secret gardens and magnificent ruins concealed right in the middle of the city!

À bientôt!

Highly recommended!
Couldn't have asked for a better bike tour during my summer visit to Paris. It made me see the city in a totally different eye, Thibaut managed to fuse history and modern street art during the tour, keeping it really interesting and fresh. The electric bikes helped with some steep Parisian street. Bring a bottle along as you will be passing lots of water fountain along the way.
Great experience on the bicycle
It was amazing to explore old streets in Paris with Thibaut. He's very knowledgeable and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his stories about Paris as we biked around old Paris. Highly recommended!
Wonderful Excursion With Insights
Our tour guide was insightful and guided us through various streets of Paris that we would have otherwise not have explored. He intentionally keeps the group to a maximum of four people which is nice because you can always hear what he has to share and you feel safe navigating on bikes without blocking traffic or getting lost. What an excellent addition to our Paris trip.
Wonderful
Thank you Thibaut for showing us unexpected sights that I wouldn't not have found on my travels to Paris!
Excellent tour!
If you don’t really have enough time but wish to see some of authentic Paris, then this is a perfect tour for you! It was great that i found Thibaut on the web (and in a short notice), turned out the tour was a great satisfaction as it was fun cycling in the small alleys of Paris. Thibaut is very nice and passionate abt the city. He’s a really good and a knowledgeable tour guide -yes, for the histories of the city, buildings etc! What’s really interesting was that when we were introduced to the street arts -they’re everywhere- that we didn’t even notice before.. oh, and of course the secret garden(s)! :)
Great tour, flexible, lovely informative guide
Thibaut was very informative, flexible and approachable. I had a lovely time and it was the perfect way to start my time in Paris. I highly recommend it. Jodi
Excellent way to see Paris!
The besttt thing we did in paris second to visiting the top of Eiffel tower was the blue bike tour! Our guide Thibault was a young Parisian himself and we loveddd the way he showed us around . Each spot has a lovely story he shared with us which made it even more interesting. We probably saw all the amazing places like a few palaces and bridges the berges the best restaurant in Paris etc etc which we would've easily given a miss to! Enjoyed every bit of it and their reminders and timings are very prompt too! Must do in Paris.
The best way to see Paris for first time visitors
Thibault was a fantastic guide! We really enjoyed the riding around the city. We saw many sights and learned a lot about Paris. We had a great time. A highlight for sure!
Blue Bike Tour - amazing!
We had a wonderful experience on the 'off the beaten path' bike tour with Thibaut our awesome guide, who shared his knowledge of Paris and France with us. He also showed us some street art and recommended good places to eat. Thank you Thibaut!
