Description: One of the most unique and exciting ways to explore a city as picturesque...
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.

Pablo was an excellent guide. We did a 4 hr off the beaten path tour. He started with asking what we had seen already and just planned the trip from there. He was knowledgeable about the city and its rich history. I was a little intimidated at first as the traffic in Paris is crazy by American standards but you... More

If you want to explore Paris in a magical and privileged way, a scooter sounds the perfect plan. We rented a 125 vespa for our anniversary and we really enjoyed it! Left Bank's assistance started as soon as I emailed them for the first time. They were answering to my questions quickly and efficently. On the day of the rental,... More

We had a large group coming to Paris and chose to make a reservation with Left Bank Scooters. They responded promptly and asked about the group's scooter experience. After explaining their policy, I chose to withdraw my reservations. The consultant was nice, understanding, and refunded my deposit. I really appreciate their honesty and concern for our safety!

I had a day in paris at the end of a business trip and took a scooter tour with thierry. Really a great way to see paris, in 3 hours or so we hit the major sites and had time for an "off the beaten path" tour where we explored some neighborhoods. Thierry was very knowledgeable and easy to be... More

We did 2 tours with Left Bank Scooters and enjoyed both immensely. If you are hesitant to ride a scooter, I highly recommend the sidecar tour with Thierry. Both tours were extremely informative and highly entertaining. You feel pretty cool riding the streets of Paris in both a scooter or a sidecar. We were able to hit all the sites... More

All those reviews - i thought, it can't be that good, surely. So i kept an open mind at the beginning of the tour. Our guide was Pablo, and when he said that it's been nearly 8 hours we've been on a tour we could not believe it. All that is said about guides about Left Bank Scooters are true.... More

Arranged this trip with LBS who were extremely accommodating with a few time changes. Chose sidecar tour for myself and 14 yr old son. Simply put, this was one of the best trips we have ever done. Our host was amusing, chatty and knowledgable and we took turns in the sidecar. Both of us are 6 feet tall but there... More

Forget about the Metro and the RER. If you want to see Paris like a local, get in touch with Adam from Left Bank Scooters. I was in Paris for the weekend on Valentines Day 2015. Thought about buying a pass for the Metro until I came across Left Bank Scooter. Let me tell you, it was the best decision... More

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
