Holland Bikes invites you to discover Paris and Nice from a different angle thanks to our guided tours. During our bike tours, our team, who specially designed the routes, will share with you, historical anecdotes and secret addresses on the neighborhoods we cross.
It will also be an opportunity for you to exchange very easily with our local guides, who are well placed to explain how the city works, its good sides and all its small features!
We are an international team who loves to travel and meet new friends from all around the world and are very passionate about our cities of adoption, Paris & Nice.
Most of us have been living in Paris or Nice for over 15 years, which enables us to guide you through the many emblematic places and tell you the stories behind them. As we have been living around French people for all these years, we also have many interesting facts to share with you!
More than just a historical and cultural guided tour, our offer includes all the insights into the French way of life and what it’s like to be an expat in France.
We provide guided tours in Dutch, English, French and German.
Many of our customers ask us about our favorite places to hang out & eat, what special events might be going on during their stay ect… and we love to share that with them during or after the tour.
We are looking forward to meeting you and biking with you!
