When travelling there are so many tours to choose from. You can get on a bus, take a walking tour or tour the city by bike. When I was in Paris years ago, my husband booked Fat Tire Tour. It was a biking tour of Versailles. We loved it so much that we have taken their tours in London and Rome. My interview today is with David Mebane, the founder and CEO of Fat Tire Tours. He started the company with a loan backed by his parents when he was 19 years old in 1999. The company celebrated their 20th anniversary last year and now has tours in over 12 cities all over the world with not only bike tours but Segway and walking tours too!
PS. Don’t think “fat tire” as in mountain biking. That is not what type of tours are — it is cruiser bikes with nice fat seats!
