My husband and I had an amazing experience with Txango Tours today with Simon Burke! We did the Paris Monuments Tour by Motorcycle Sidecar. I booked this a number of months ago and Simon was super responsive and so easy to deal with. Today, he showed up early and followed up with us as we weren't at the exact location. Simon was so patient with us and set proper expectations of what we would cover and timeline. Simon was extremely personable, kind and flexible. He took pictures of us and he even went out of his way to give us a great view of places that were not listed on the tour. This was a once in a lifetime experience and one we will cherish in years to come. I highly recommend Txango Tours and hope to do other tours with them. I hear they are growing quickly and can see why as it's such a unique experience. MAGICAL!!!! We will definitely share this with our friends and family in Canada. Thank you Simon for an incredible tour today! Judy & Shea

This was the best thing that I did in my trip to Paris. I was only in the city for a few days, so getting to zoom around in a motorcycle sidecar was an awesome way to see the city! And having a personally guide to explain why Paris is the way it is was really amazing. The tour was personalized and the 2 hours flew by! I’d 10/10 recommend!

To all the travelers out there you should book a tour from Txango Tour!!! It’s definitely worth it. It’s my first time in Paris and I don’t regret booking a tour from Simon. He is the best!!!! Even though it rained a bit but Simon was ready for our fancy Ponchos. How cool was that? Me and friend experienced the most amazing city tour in Paris. I will surely recommend this tour 10/10!!!! I will definitely book another tour to Versailles when I go back to Paris. Thank you so much Simon we had a great time. 😊☺️ I wish you more success in the future. I will never forget you. 🥰

This is hands down one of the best things to do to get an overall view of Paris in the coolest ways possible. Simon is an excellent guide and historian, the ride is smooth and safe (coming from a self-professed Nervous Nelly!). My daughter (12) and I did this on our first full day in Paris to get a little preview to sites - we highly recommend everyone to book this now! Who needs a big dang bus when you can zip around in style? We loved every minute.

Highly recommend! My husband and I absolutely loved our tour with Simon. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and the tour is super fun. His motorcycle and sidecar are beautiful, comfortable, and meticulously maintained. Everyone smiled as we passed by. Simon provided great views, photo ops, history, anecdotes and insider tips. It was a highlight of our visit to Paris!UPDATE: Loved our tour so much we did a 2nd one! We had so much fun on our tour of Paris with Simon that we impromptu booked a 1/2 day tour of Versailles with him. Another awesome experience! Versailles was beautiful and Simon took us to a beautiful spot along the canal for a small picnic with wine, cheese, and bread that we bought at the Versailles market. We definitely recommend this tour as well, or the full day if you have time. You can’t go wrong with Txango Tours!

On our recent trip to Paris we were fortunate enough to to enjoy a sidecar tour with Simon and Jean and it was unquestionably the highlight of our week.From the outset both gentlemen were personable and immediately settled any nerves that the kids had.Simon openly shared his own story with us and we left feeling like we had made a friend in Paris.In terms of the tour, Simon made it clear that it was very much our experience and we felt like he tailored it to us. Every time we stopped he gave us a brief history of the site and always offered to take pictures. He took the “long way back” at the end of the tour, we never felt like he was trying to wind things up and get back.Simon is extremely knowledgeable about French history and culture, he answered all questions and gave us a real flavor of Paris. We have already decided to return next year and will definitely be doing the trip to Versailles with Txango .10/10 from us and without doubt I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Txango.Merci Beaucop.

What a fantastic tour! He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history and was great at answering all our questions. The ride in the side cars were fun. We had 3 of us on our tour. I highly recommend it. And book DIRECTLY through his website. He’s a local small business owner and it saves him 30% fees when you don’t go through travel agency websites. We appreciated this fun tour around Paris!

We took a sidecar tour with Simon while on vacation. It was the best experience we had during our week in Paris. Simon was so personable, the sidecar was fun and he personalized the tour and gave us some great recommendations. His knowledge of history was vast and it was nice to get to some unexpected sites other than all the usual tourist attractions. He gave us recommendations for restaurants when we asked him and dropped us at a different ending point so that we'd be closest to the next place we were going. All in all, a wonderful experience that we would definitely recommend. Thank you, Simon!

Absolutely fantastic experience. Cannot recommend the tour and Simon highly enough. My teenage daughter and I did the 2 hour Paris monuments tour first thing on a Saturday morning. Neither of us had been on a motorbike before but that didn’t matter. Simon is a brilliant guide, a really nice guy, it’s his business and he’s both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The bike is new but of a classic design, it’s beautiful. My daughter said the side car was really comfy. This was a perfect introduction for my daughter to Paris. It was a lovely mother and daughter experience neither of us will forget. No regrets. Just do it!

We had an AMAZING time with Simon on the Txango tour! Simon was a great guide; cheerfrul, and full of local facts. The trip itself covered a really diverse amount of sites, and being on the bike meant that you saw daily life in Paris from a new perspective. Sitting on the back of the bike was munch more comfortable than I expected too! :) Thanks Simon - no doubt you're going to have a busy summer! Nicholas & Fiona

Unique and fun family experience!Simon and Jean at Txango Tours Paris are fab! We booked the 90 min sidecar bike tour across Paris on our recent visit and cannot stop raving about this experience enough.We have 2 young, hyperactive daughters under the age of 8 and they specifically had an incredible time exploring Paris. The side car ride was deceptively therapeutic and the kids were able to sit through and enjoy the tour, plus us parents got to learn about the wonderful historical landmarks.Simon is able to keep your family entertained, share interesting insights on monuments and engage everyone in our family with the thrill of the sidecar ride. It's such a unique way to experience a city!

Was such fun doing a tour of Paris in a motorcycle sidecar on the Vice to Violence tour. A rare opportunity. This was my first visit to Paris and I was travelling on my own but I wanted to see more than the usual sights. It was special fun to see sights one is less likely to come across with Simon’s interesting insights into the underbelly of Paris and quirky historical events. Simon was a gracious host who cares about his business. So glad I came across this and would definitely do another tour with Simon, and recommend to others who want to see a different side to Paris in a different way.

Simon was an amazing tour guide! We were able to be flexible about routes based on conditions and he gave some great history of Paris monuments and France that I was not previously aware of. Riding in the side car was so fun! Such a cool and unique way to experience the city and get some history!

Simon loves his job, and it shows! My family took a quick three day trip to Paris while staying in Germany. Hands down, this was the high-light of our trip. The teenagers loved it, the young adults loved it and the parents loved it. The trip gives you a different view of Paris and all it has to offer. Simon's historical knowledge of Paris is outstanding and he and his team were tons of fun. We laughed, talked some trash (because that is what our family does) and enjoyed our time with them. Our only regret was not being able to do a second tour in our limited time in Paris. I will recommend this tour to everyone that I meet and plan to do another tour when we visit Paris again.

Hands down one of the MUST-DO things in Paris—even for locals. The monuments tour was fantastically fun and Simon shared quirky tidbits of Paris history. You really get a different perspective weaving through traffic by motorcycle. I'm already plotting my next sidecar tours... Montmartre, Versailles, a picnic, ?????

The side car tour with Simon was one of the highlights of our trip. My friend and I arrived late due to unavoidable circumstances. Inspite of the delay he was so gracious when we met him. (Sorry Simon! I’m not the tardy type so it’s still killing me! 🙈)We loved seeing Paris from the back of a motorcycle. The side car gave a totally new perspective of the city. He took us to see monuments that we wouldn’t have ordinarily gone to, and even took photographs on the way.Highly recommend Simon as a tour guide for Paris. Not only is he knowledgeable about the monuments and history of the city, he has a funny and engaging way of telling it. I’m definitely booking the tour on my next trip with the kids. They’ll love his beautiful bike and this novel way of seeing a city.

My son and daughter-in-law gifted a monuments tour for my birthday. Simon is a great guide! Aside, the sidecar is surprisingly comfortable. I was able to stretch out my legs and it was amazingly easy to get in and out. I really appreciate Simon's personable approach and his sensitivity to what the customer is looking for. I am already planning a tour for my wife! Thanks, Simon, for a great tour. I will be recommending to my friends.

I did a Paris monuments tour with Simon last week with my friend Gail and we absolutely LOVED our experience! I've been coming to Paris for 40 years, but had never seen the sites from the back of a motorcycle before, and it was a total blast. Simon knows his history and was able to bring each monument to life. He is a sweetheart. I would highly recommend this on your next visit to Paris. It would be a great thing to do on your first day to get an overview of the city - or any day! Can't wait to do his Versailles tour one day soon.

Had the BEST time with Simon taking not one, but two sidecar tours in the same week! I did my first ride solo, having a great time chatting and hanging out with Simon during the two hours in the sidecar. He's knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to stop for plenty of photos along the way (10/10 taking ALL the pictures while on this tour) and kindly provided helpful recommendations for the rest of my time in Paris. Within the same trip, I ended up booking the picnic tour for myself and a friend to take a ride, stopping for cheese, wine, and snacks at a few perfectly picturesque Paris locations. Riding both in the sidecar and on the back of the bike were SO fun, zipping around Paris on a gorgeous spring day felt like a dream and I would 100% book a tour again!
This was the most fun I had on a Paris tour! Simon is a wealth of information and riding around the city in the sidecar was fantastic! The only thing I didn't like was that it ended - that just means I will need to book another tour with Simon very soon. Thank you very much!!

The best adventure in Paris! Vice and Violence tour was amazing, and you get to zip around in the most stylish sidecar that gets a lot of attention as you tour around. Simon is great -very knowledgeable and fun. I cannot recommend this enough.

Oh my goodness! Can't say enough how much my husband and I enjoyed this tour! If you like the back stories behind some of the iconic sights of Paris, this is right up your alley. Simon is very knowledgeable and presents the info in a very engaging and interesting way. He gives lots of opportunities to stop and discuss the sights and get some great pictures. And if you think you might be even the slightest bit interested in riding on a sidecar through Paris, this is definitely for you. Seeing traffic from that perspective was a blast! Two hours went by like 15 minutes. Simon is a great guide--very friendly and engaging. Highly recommend this tour!
