“Night tour with April”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Pedaling leisurely round trip from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame was a delight with our fabulous guide April. Paris lights were gorgeous as we stopped for the best Parisian ice cream on the banks of the Seine. To top the evening off we sipped complimentary wine on our river boat ride. Great fun! April have us terrific restaurant recommendations in Marais. Great ride for all. We highly recommend the night tour!

“Great tour of Versaille”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Victor was our tour guide for Versaille - and he was delightful. He met us at the café, guided our tour group on the train, entertained us with historical and witty stories as he led us through the gardens, and then made sure we were settled in the chateau before leaving us. This was our last day in Europe and Victor made sure we ended it on a high note.

“Ideal way to see it all in Paris”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was booked for my birthday and what a treat. Fat Tyres (sic for the English!), is the perfect way to see the majority of the sites in Paris. We did the daytime and the evening tours with Darcee and Paul, American and Australian, respectively. You tend to ride in groups of 20 on cruiser style bikes which are easy to ride and handle. Each tour lasted about 3.5 hours.

Both groups had some great characters in them: mainly Americans and Commonwealth citizens but a few Europeans sneaked in too!

Our guides were fun, entertaining and knowledgeable. Well done guys.

“Missed bike tour”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

My wife and I were on a 10 night British Isles cruise in July and booked an 11:00am bike tour. Unfortunately we never made it to the tour. I booked an 8am train from Le Havre to Paris that should have gotten to Paris by 10:15 which left more than enough time to get to the bike tour meeting place. What I didn't know was that the ship time and the local French time differed by 1 hour making our arrival too late to get to the tour on time.
When I explained the issue to Fat Tire Bike Tours, they did not offer to refund the tour fees. While I do understand that they were following the published policy, I would have hoped for some discretion.
So be careful to ensure that the ship times match Paris time before you book tickets and time sensitive tours.

Hello Ophir D,

I am truly sorry to hear you missed your tour with us. I understand that confusion regarding time zones can easily arise and it is a real shame that this resulted in you missing your tour.

We have a 72 hour cancellation policy, within which time we cannot refund the cost of the tour, however we are always willing to reschedule the reservation for any other day that we have availability.

I have emailed you to apologize for the lack of understanding displayed by the member of staff with whom you corresponded.

I hope we will have the pleasure of hosting you in Paris on a future occasion.
