I've been to Paris many times before, but I never saw it like this. We hit nearly all of the main sights but we also went down streets and through hidden squares and places I'd never heard of. I worried a little about dealing with the traffic, but it was surprisingly easy - Parisian drivers are actually pretty courteous compared... More

What a fantastic way to see Paris. Our tour guide Jean was brilliant taking us through the Paris streets zipping in and out of the busy traffic and stopping at some fabulous icons. It gave us a taste of the real Paris. We saw more of Paris in the time we had then we would of on a tour bus.... More

We had an amazing trip out to Versailles on a scooter tour, led by Jean. Jean knew both the city and outskirts like the back of his hand. He took us on a great tour of Versailles and then some of the surrounding towns, including a stop at a delightful french market. On the way back into the city he... More

We had quite a time trying to find someone who would rent mopeds to Americans! Luckily Xavier was there to provide us with a great quality scooter for two! We had so much fun buzzing around to see the sights. Be weary that other Parisian cyclists drive like madmen! All in all a great choice. I will certainly be contacting... More

I was spending over a month in Paris and early on I had seen all of the major monuments by walking around and taking the metro. I was looking for a more local perspective and a better understanding of Paris as a whole. I hadn't driven a Vespa before, but I contacted Xavier to see what my options were for... More

We had a great time riding all through Paris and to Versailles! I picked this tour to get us out of the city a bit and experience some of the french countryside and I'm glad i did. My husband and I didnt have motorcycle licenses so we rented the 50's. They were very easy to ride and even though I... More

If you are like me this will seem terrifying. French traffic, Parisian drivers, unknown territory. All make this seem like a scary choice. Boy was I wrong. Xavier takes care of everything, including calming and reassuring his customers. I got the hang of it in minutes and was hooked. Riding down the champs élysées on a Vespa was one of... More

This is an awesome way to spend the day in Paris. The owner Xavier was very reliable and informative. The GPS has a tour already planned out with all the major sights and the bike was in excellent condition and very easy to ride. We are used to London roads, and this was actually easier to ride than there -... More
