a note from our founder


Bonjour and welcome to the most magical city in the world. I have loved Paris since first arriving here in 1995 and I hope you will feel the same after your visit.

And during your visit I sincerely hope we will have the opportunity to show you the Paris that we know and love so much. On my very first tour 15 years ago I had the goal of being a bridge between the English-speaking traveler and Paris. I knew it could be frustrating at times and I felt a personal obligation to make sure everyone left with an appreciation of the city's history, architecture, food and hidden treasures.

It won't come as a surprise that one of my favorite ways to show friends around Paris is by bicycle. There's just something about exploring this timeless and beautiful city while cycling. When you pedal past the magnificent buildings and along the famous boulevards, you feel as though you are truly participating with Paris. I have always said that I feel so sorry for the traveler that settles for riding atop a moving tour bus. There's just too much of this city to only explore it while you speed through the streets.

All of our tours have been designed with you, our guest, in mind. It's our goal to bring each customer a fantastic private and personal experience. We achieve this through limited group size, world-class tour guides, and 5-star customer service. We've grown quite a bit since the day we first began giving tours in 1999, and I believe the catalyst for that growth was found in providing the best possible experience for our guests.

I am very proud that we have evolved from a simple day bike tour to offering multiple bicycle, Segway, walking and skip-the-line tours. While many others have tried to replicate our efforts, I hope you will choose to explore Paris with us and see for yourself why I believe we stand head and shoulders above the rest.

If there is anything we can do to assist you during your stay, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our office is open every day of the week at 9am (except Sundays in January), and you may make a reservation online for any of our tours.

I look forward to welcoming you on our tours and to creating the same memories for you and your friends and family that have made us world famous since 1999.

Bon Voyage,

David Mebane
