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.

We rented scooters and took a tour with Pablo, he was beyond amazing. He was informative, hilarious and we now consider him a friend. We had a fantastic time with him and would do it many time over. Thank you for spending the day with us Shawna and Glenn

This was my first time in Paris and my first time renting a scooter. My girlfriend was quite anxious about us hopping on a Vespa in a busy foreign city but after the first day, we were hooked. We originally intended to rent for only one day but we extended it to 4 days. The Metro is fine if you... More
