One of the most unique and exciting ways to explore a city as picturesque as Paris is on a vintage-styled Vespa scooter. Left Bank Scooters offer small group guided scooter tours of Paris and to the Chateau of Versailles. Choose from a Paris Highlights Tour, Whole of Paris tour, and Chateau of Versailles and surrounding countryside tour. All tours start and finish from your hotel or apartment anywhere in Paris. You can drive your own Vespa, ride as a driver/passenger with your partner, or if you aren't a confident driving a scooter you can ride as a passenger with the guide. Tours are in English or French. Tour groups are kept as small as possible, normally between 1 to 2 scooters, making them very personal, safe and always good fun.

We rent a vespa for 3 days. Paris with a vespa is different and beautiful! We picked up our vespa in our hotel, and left it in our hotel also. We paid with credit card. The personnel was very friendly and spoke fluently English.

We had a fabulous second day in Paris thanks to Daniel and Nicolas from Left Bank Scooters tour. Informative, funny and personable - our guides exposed us to a side of Paris we could not have experienced on our own. Highly recommended for first timers in Paris who want to see the city without all of the walking, this tour... More

After doing a scooter tour in another city in Asia, we decided that we must see other cities this way when possible. We booked an afternoon tour with the goal of seeing things we hadn't already seen during our stay here. Since this was our last day in Paris, we told our guide what we had seen, what we definitely...

What an AMAZING experience! Pablo was our guide, and we couldn't have asked for a better day. We did the scooter trip to Versailles with a tour in the countryside afterward. Pablo picked us up right on time with two bright red vespas, and we were soon off and driving through the streets of Paris! We were a group of... More

Pablo was everything you want in a guide- history expert! (Yes, Paris has over 2000 years of drama!) excellent driver(made it through the terrifying Arch de Triumph) and super photographer!!! (He took some fabulous photos of us at EVERY stop. (Thanks Pablo!) and may I say super hilarious too! Made me love Paris so much and King Henri too!

My sister and I travelled to Paris in May this year. I was very keen to try the scooters but my sister has a hip problem and riding a scooter would have been very painful for her. I was delighted to find that Left Bank Scooters also offered a tour on a bike with sidecar. Perfect solution. Our guide Thierry... More

We did the sidecar ride to Versailles et la campagne with Thierry. The bike was original and fun to ride. Our guide is knowledgeable and very friendly. Great sense of humour. We may try our own scooters next time. Wonderful ways to discover the area. Thank you Thierry !!!

We rented a Vespa for the day last minute. We had a very kind guide for several hours, Terry. He was kind, knowledgeable and efficient. We kept the bike for an additional 24 hours for 50 euro and explored on our own. Great way to see the city and memorable experience but harrowing with traffic if you are faint of... More

We went on a Vespa tour out to Versailles with Thierry. What a wonderful experience! Thierry picked us up at our apartment and off we went, each on our own scooter. (Note, we both have ridden scooters quite a bit and I recommend some not booking this without confidence on a motor bike of some sort). What a surprise to... More

Well ... Totally recommend just renting a scooter, getting lost and seeing the city, we did. This is one of the best and quickest ways to find your way around the city. We recommend the sat nav if you're not familiar with Paris and also the fuel as you don't have to worry about that. The scooters are easy to... More
