We spent 11 days in France and the thing we talked about the most was the Electric Bike Tour. Our guide was awesome and took us places that we would not have seen. He helped us navigate the streets of Paris with ease. Can't wait...More

The tour is funny, intriguing, exciting and enriching. Swan is an awesome guide! He took us around Paris, and told us about Napoleon, Louis XIV, Voltaire, Victor Hugo and other notable Parisiens. If you're in Paris, even for a short time, take this tour!

I’d say it depends on them. Most of it is safe but there are some parts where we are among other cars in traffic, if they are used to that sort of thing then I’d say yes. It’s just a small part of the tour though.
