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.

Our first trip to Paris was a perfect magical experience , but the absolute highlight was our 2 days with the Vespa. We went to so many places we would have never gone to because it shrunk the city down so far. We even rode it out to the Palace of Versailles. If you're somewhat fearless and up for a... More

I did a half day tour with Daniel and I loved every second of it! He took me to all the attractions that I was interested in and was very knowledgeable of the history of each place. Riding around the Arc de Triomphe was an experience in and of itself if you're not used to riding on a scooter or... More

Don't miss this experience! I agree with the other positive comments made about Left Bank Scooters. We booked an all day tour and spent from 10-5 with Daniel on a perfect Paris day. We saw so many sights that day, and it was so fun! My husband drove one scooter and I rode on the back of Daniel's, giving me... More

Do yourself a favor and do not take the train to Versailles. Leave the crowds behind and enjoy a memorable experience by taking a scooter or the sidecar to Versailles instead. We were a bit hesitant at first, but we did and we loved it! Thierry is a fantastic tour guide who loves what he does and it shows. He... More

My wife and I booked the all day Paris tour for our wedding anniversary and it was amazing. Although I was hesitant to ride a scooter in Parisian traffic our awesome guide Thierry gave me some pointers and let me do a practice run in on the way to pick up another couple for the tour. I quickly fell in... More

I was hesitant at first because I didn't want to fork out €300 (my husband wanted to do the full day private tour), but I'm SO glad we did. You simply have to do this. It's THE way to see Paris. It was my husband & I on one cute little Vespa & our tour guide, Daniel, on another. I... More

We rented a Vespa for just a day but had a wonderful time. The pick-up/drop-off could not have been easier and they were extremely accommodating with the times. The scooter ran great and was a fun ride around the city...highly recommend!

My husband and I were in Paris for our 25th wedding anniversary. We did the all day Versailles tour with Thierry who was a great guide . I highly recommend going to Versailles this way--a true French experience! We also did the all day Paris tour with Daniel who did a great job. In spite of the cold and light... More

We booked an Off the Beaten Track Tour with Thierry as our guide. It was the most fantastic way to see Paris and in particular Montmartre. Thierry looked after us extremely well and was a wealth of knowledge. We were two on a scooter and we never felt at risk in the Paris traffic! A lap around the Arc de... More
