Picture this: You are so excited. You are planning your first big family vacation! You have booked your flights and accommodation, and now you’re trying to figure out what sorts of activities to do with your partner and kiddos. What will keep everyone’s interest? What will engage them? What tour companies are family-friendly? You have so many questions, but worry not. Look no further than the acclaimed touring company Fat Tire Tours!

This summer, my husband and I will be taking our family to Paris, France for the first time. So as any diligent (read: anxious) mama would do, I have been frantically searching the internet high and low for recommendations on what to do.

I have my list of must-sees, but I was struggling with how to accomplish seeing everything without wearing out myself, my husband, or the kids. Our children are toddlers as well, so I worry about their attention span and interest. I’d like to avoid tantrums as much as possible, so the activities I choose need to have a kid-focus or cater to them in some way.

That’s when I came across Fat Tire Tours – Paris and I am so glad I did.

Fat Tire Tours have been around for 20 years — they are tried and true, and have stood the test of time! They have a low-price guarantee and 100% satisfaction guarantee, so you know they believe in what they are doing.

Fat Tire Tours has also received some amazing reviews. USA Today declared Fat Tire Tours “Top Tour Company in Paris”, Travel and Hospitality Awards named them the “Bicycle Tour Company of the Year”, and Trip Advisor named them one of the “Top Experiences in the World”! Not too shabby, eh?

Super Excited for our Fat Tire Tour through Paris!

After perusing the Fat Tire Tours website, and looking at all the awesome options, I chose for our family to do a glorious day-time bike tour to see the best sights of the City of Lights. I am STOKED!

I am envisioning a stunning and sunny summer’s day, cycling leisurely through the city, safely following the guide, with our kids buckled securely into the toddler trailer behind my husband’s bike, comfortably and excitedly looking up with awe at the historic beauty.


If biking is not your thing, that’s a-okay because Fat Tire Tours in Paris have so many options! There are 46 touring choices!!


I honestly wish we could do them all. Luckily since my brother and his wife-to-be live in Paris, I know we will be back and have the opportunity to explore as many tour options as we’d like!


Beyond Paris, France, Fat Tire Tours have 11 global destinations for tour options, including three in the U.S.!

If you book a tour with them, let me know! I’d love to hear about it.
