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.

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.

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 take a Passenger Tour by motorbike sidecar.

Wow I loved this but was absolutely terrified at the same time. Our guide was very knowledgeable but did not temper his riding to suit tourists. He was weaving in and out of traffic like no ones business and the traffic in Paris is hectic. Both of us on the tour were experienced riders so that may have explained it... More

This was by far the best experience on our 17 day European vacation. We had beautiful weather and rented a 125cc Vespa. We added on the GPS (in English) so that we could travel out to Versailles. It was such a great adventure. I started out timid and conservative but as the day went on I got very comfortable and... More

We took a tour with Thierry who met us promptly in front of our apartment in the 6th. He asked us what we have seen and then let us know that he will show us the rest of Paris. We took off and many times when we were stopped in traffic he explained what we were seeing and the history... More

Full day tour with Thierry was the best fun. He gave very good history lessons and took us for a nice lunch. Could have spent all day!

Our tour guide Nicholas picked us up from our hotel. He did a quick explanation of the scooter which was easy to understand and we were on our way. The 3 hr highlight tour took us to all of the major attractions and gave us great vantage points to see all the monuments. Nicholas was very informative about the history... More

My partner Patrick and I were only in Paris for 2 days. I wanted to see as much as we could in a short amount of time, and after reading the reviews here, I thought this would be a great option. We had good weather (not too cold). Beware, 7.5 hours for the full day tour, can be a long... More
