Boutique Bike Tours was founded with the belief that the best way to truly experience Paris & Versailles is with a perfect combination of bikes, experienced local licensed guides & great food. We are all about Escaping the Crowds, Skipping the Lines to discover the iconic hotspots & lesser known, more authentically French experiences.
We aim to make a tour with us the most memorable day of your holiday.
So, what makes us different?
When we say small groups we mean it! We pride ourselves in providing an exclusive service and we’re more committed than ever to stick to this idea and stay small.
Our small group sizes ensure a safe, interactive and flexible day out, which caters to all levels of cycling ability. This enables us to cover more ground, get to know you, answer your questions, provide local secrets for the rest of your trip, avoid crowds and offer a personalised experience.
Is your guide qualified? At Boutique Tours your guide is a native English speaker, fully fluent in French, has lived locally for at least five years and holds the French State Professional Guiding license.
This means your guide is a full time professional, with years of experience, a passion for guiding, a wealth of knowledge, able to skip lines and qualified to guide inside all monuments in France! Oh, and we’re also loads of fun!
Our tours are unique as we are able to guide you both on the bikes and inside the monuments. Our guides do not follow scripts or have set itineraries and on the day will customise the tour to the interests of the group.
So let us know if you have a particular interest or a place you would particularly like to discover. As we are local to the community our tours combine the must see with authentic gems, meeting the locals who are full of fun little surprises you would miss if you didn’t ride with Boutique Tours.
We couldn’t emphasise more how important the quality of your bike is to the enjoyment of your day.
Our bikes are brand new and handcrafted, with extra-comfortable seats and modern parts, ensuring a smooth and easy ride. These bikes are suitable for the nervous through to the confident rider. And though you will cover a remarkable amount of ground touring the Versailles town and gardens, you will not notice the distance when riding our bikes.
