Our Story

Our own experiences travelling & guiding made us see that most travelers are visiting the same sites, sitting on buses, standing in long lines, listening to the same audio guides & wandering confused around museums. This seemed far from good use of precious holiday time. This is why, in 2017 we decided to breakaway to start a new bike tour company that seeks to be different. We started with a simple goal – to work with a team of highly qualified guides who can guide inside sites, escape the crowds, have fun and make sure that our guests enjoy Paris & Versailles as much as we do. Boutique Tours has been built and developed around these simple priorities:

  • A fun & friendly team of guides
  • Small Groups
  • Everyone is highly qualified
  • We all know Paris & Versailles inside out
  • Passionate about Responsible Tourism
Some of these might seem obvious, but it doesn’t take much to see that in our industry they are compromised regularly.

Fast forward a few years and our core principles remain at the heart of what we do. We agreed from the beginning that we only wanted to work with like-minded guides who we trust completely – committed local guides, who love the place and know it like the back of their hands. People like us.

The result is a unique tour company committed to delivering the best possible experiences. We think it’s a winning formula and are proud to have been awarded and continually top rated for service, excellence and outstanding value. This year is no different – and we’d like to take an opportunity to thank all our guests for making our last few years so amazing!

Our Mission

We aim to make your time with us the most memorable day of your vacation. The best way to truly experience Paris & Versailles is with a perfect combination of bikes, fun, local licensed guides, French wine & great food. We are all about escaping the crowds & skipping the lines to discover both the must see sites & lesser known, more authentically French experiences.
