Adam will deliver your scooter any place in Paris and pick it again at the end of your stay. His Vespa's are lovely and will be your best companion to move around in Paris, parking anywhere next to the sites you wish to visit. Helmets, rain coat, U-lock, everything is included. Unfortunately, not the cheapest (but certainly the most convenient)... More

I ordered a private sidecar tour as a surprise gift for my parents, who would only be in Paris for one day to celebrate their anniversary (!) When I called Left Bank Scooters, they told me that they were fully booked for Monday. Here's the amazing part: at my request, they offered another group a discount to switch places with... More

Apparently, your experience varies depending on the guide you have. And, to my understanding you can't go wrong with any of the guides. I had my 13 y/o daughter strapped to the back of the scooter with a buddy and his daughter trailing behind us. The guides lead based upon your experience and your display of skill. Likewise, we were... More

We did two tours, one of the Paris highlights and the second of Versailles with Pablo. Couldn't have gotten a better guide. Made sure we were safe and having fun at the same time. We were highly disappointed when our Versailles tour got cancelled due to rain but Adele was kind enough to accommodate our request the next day and... More

What an amazing way to make Paris feel smaller and more manageable! So much fun we had a second go! Service impeccable. Scooter great. Gas mileage wonderful. I highly recommend this to anyone spending even a day in this great city. Special thanks to Adam and his willingness to go the extra mile to make it a great experience.

This was my second year in a row doing the Paris Scooter Day tour. Each time has exceeded my expectations. The first time was with Thierry, who was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. The second time was with Pablo, who was a superb guide as well. Pablo went above and beyond to make sure we walked away happy, even... More

With my granddaughter, I took a sidecar tour with Left Bank scooters. I was pleasantly surprised with the tour. We were toured for 3 hours by our guide Thierry. He was so helpful and did not talk excessively--only when necessary. He took us to places we asked him to take us. He even stopped on the way at Paul's for... More

We had a most enjoyable and informative afternoon yesterday on a sidecar motorbike with Thierry. Sunday is a good day to move around in the traffic and we saw lots. 10 year old was happy in the sidecar and I sat comfortably behind the driver. Can highly recommend as a way to get up close and personal with Paris. He... More

My family (wife, 13 year old, 9 year old, 76 year old mother-in-law) and I wanted to see Versailles but didn't want to do the tour bus. Left Bank Scooters sounded like fun. Thierry met us at our hotel with 2 scooters and his motorcycle with side car. We were a little hesitant after seeing the traffic but Thierry had... More

My husband and I spent a week in Paris with our friend who wanted to visit Paris for her 50th Birthday. Many months before our trip I researched fun things to do in Paris and came across Left Bank Scooters various tours around Paris. I e-mailed them and they were extremely responsive at getting back to me. We booked a... More
