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.

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.

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 take a Passenger Tour by motorbike sidecar.

WOW what fun . We decided to do something a little adventurous during our recent trip to Paris. We took a half day tour with Left Bank Scooters and then rented the Vespa for the next 24 hours and headed out on our own. If I had to do it over again I would have rented it for the entire... More

Rented the side car scooter! Pablo was the absolute best tour guide! (and photographer he took the best pictures for us) and he really made it a great experience, at the end of the tour he dropped us off at a restaurant he recommended and it was amazing! Best decision of our whole trip, and was a once in a... More

This was a blast. Thiery (pronounced Terry) was an excellent guide and historian. They bring the Vespa's right to your door (hotel or apartment) and that's where you end it. All day event down to Versailles and lunch at a little creperie (excellent), then on to small little towns and French countryside. Thank you to owner Marion. She is immediate... More

It was just the two of us, on our own little red vespa, following Terry around all day. He was not only polite, knew his French history (and pretty darn specific European and English history as well), and would switch his teacher/guide/awesome dude hat around as necessary. He showed us where to go eat after our tour was over, how... More

It was amazing to see a lot of Paris in the side car tour! Thierry was a phenomenal guide, very knowledgeable and insight of the Paris culture. He recommended us to a wonderful restaurant for our lunch- great authentic Parisian food! My sister and I absolutely enjoyed our first day in Paris hopping on and off the sidecar and motorcycle...

Versaille / French countryside tour: I cannot express how absolutely awesome this tour was. The beauty of Versaille and the French countryside was accentuated by that of an impressively knowledgable (4th generation Parisienne) tour guide, Thierry. At every step of the tour Thierry was a wealth of knowledge in regards to the French people and the area of the country... More

We rented a Vespa from Marc and his girlfriend in late March for a few days during our trip to Paris. They were SO cool and nice during the entire experience. 1) They brought the scooter to us! They dropped the bike right were we were eating breakfast and let me sign all the papers right there. 2) When we... More

Our side-car tour with Thierry was definitely a highlight of our holiday in Paris! He's very knowledgeable about the history of this wonderful city and we had a great time seeing the sites we had missed on our previous trip here, like the Marais and Montmartre. He has a great sense of humor and kept us entertained for the entire... More
