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.

Let me first start off by stating that you should have some experience with a scooter or motorcycle. While there is a mutual respect between cars and scooters, it can be a bit intimidating while you weave around and in between cars. Once over the initial trepidation and having gotten used to our scooter, we had a blast! An awesome... More

We did the full day private tour of Versailles with Thierry. My husband, who has experience with motorcycles as well as urban bicycling, had his own Vespa and I rode on the back of Theirry's Vespa. Theirry was prompt, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. As far as the scooters, he always put safety first. We had to navigate Paris traffic on... More

Did a half-day sidecar tour with Pablo as our guide. The experience was excellent, great fun and Pablo was charming and knowledgable. Would absolutely 100% recommend the sidecar tour if you don't fancy riding the bike yourself - an incredible way to see Paris and they will tailor the tour to suit your needs.

We booked a late night tour (with Pablo) on our first day we arrived in Paris. Driving a Vespa without knowing where you go and finding all the cool places in Paris - that`s pretty much what we did with our guide. It was so much fun and we enjoyed it. Much more interesting all the places during daytime the... More

Our group of 4 did the Vespa Trip to Versailles. Two rode with our fabulous guide, Thierry, in a side car and the other two (being a bit more experienced on bikes) drove their own. It was an incredible way to see the countryside and visit Versailles. We had a great tour of the gardens - Thierry was just full... More

We had a great time on our tour of Versailles and the French countryside with Pablo. My husband has his motorcycle license, so he was able to drive one of the bigger Vespas. I alternated riding behind Pablo (while hubby was getting used to driving in Paris) and riding behind my husband. Pablo was a great guide - very knowledgeable,... More

Left Bank Scooters is just plain amazing Getting a scooter delivered to you without all the French fuss is as breathtaking as the ride I rode all around paris. Renting a scooter from left bank is the best way to explore paris. Trust me, you would rather get lost while riding a scooter than walking around like a tourist. Walking... More

Pablo was an excellent guide. We did a 4 hr off the beaten path tour. He started with asking what we had seen already and just planned the trip from there. He was knowledgeable about the city and its rich history. I was a little intimidated at first as the traffic in Paris is crazy by American standards but you... More
