Read through the reviews here and you'll see that Pablo is mentioned a lot, and for good reason. He was an AWESOME tour guide, and this was probably my favorite part of what was a dream vacation. Pablo met us at our hotel (a highly underrated service) and gave us the skinny on the tour. Off we went, with my... More

My husband and I came to Paris this past June for our honeymoon and booked with Left Bank Scooters. Our tour guide Pablo was awesome!! He gave us such an amazing tour around Paris that we booked him two days later for the Versailles tour! It was definitely the highlight of our honeymoon! We will be coming back to Paris... More

My husband and I did the private night tour and had an amazing time. Pablo meet us in our hotel lobby, and had the scooters right out side our hotel waiting for us. He knew the area well, and took us on the best tour ever! It was like meeting up with a long time friend that lived in Paris... More

My husband and I LOVED our Vespa rental. Adam was very nice and helpful. Vespa is easy to use I would recommend this for anyone planning their own trip and likes to explore on their own. Excellent!

We loved every minute of our 'off the beaten track' scooter sightseeing tour! My husband drove his Vespa, I went on the back of Pablo's, our super clued up, great fun guide. To be honest, I'd have gone just for the three hours of whizzing through Paris but the sights we saw close up and without tedious tourist bus trips... More

I went on two scooter trips with Left Bank Scooters in late August 2014, out to Versailles and around Paris. I was a little bit nervous about managing the scooter so went as a passenger with Thierry on both trips. Both trips were absolutely fabulous. Thierry's knowledge of French history and Paris is superb. I had so much fun. Sitting... More

My fiancée and I first encountered LBS during a trip in September of 2009 to celebrate our engagement. We returned to Paris last month for another visit and rented with LBS again. Adam was truly exceptional - he was responsive to emails (often replying within minutes) and also adjusted our rental return time on the fly with a simple note... More

We did a Off the Beaten Track Paris tour and it was AMAZING. Definitely one of the two highlights of my whole Paris Trip. I would suggest it to anyone who wants to see Paris. Scooter: We took 2 scooters, one for my wife and the other for myself. They are 50cc Vespas in good condition and ran like a... More

My wife and I did the full day tour of Paris each on our scooter. Thierry was our guide. Everything about the tour was awesome! Thierry showed up on time and after completing the paperwork we were on our way. We saw all the major spots in Paris plus several that we wouldn't have thought of going to. Thierry's depth... More

Riding with someone really knows Paris, like Pablo, you can find out more than other visitors. Really enjoyed the ride.
