My wife and I got a Vespa for 24 hours, so much fun and great way to see the island! The friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable staff made it as easy as possible, complete with recommendations of every good restaurant and attraction on the island along with perfect insight as to road conditions in each location. Highly recommend.

We were in Provo for our honeymoon. There could be no better place than this for obvious reasons! And to add to it, we came across Paradise Scooters, the Vespa we rented was the best thing ever. It was one hell of an experience that we had on the vespa.
The owner's daughter..sorry i can't recall her name , was very helpful. She told us about the entire island . And then it actually became so easy for us to go about it. Vespa rental was not very expensive as well, so everyone must take it! You'll surely have the Time of your LIFE!!

My husband and I rented 2 Vespas for one day during our vacation. We had never driven vespas or scooters before. The friendly staff gave us a short driving lessen before we headed out. They were very helpful and knowledgable about the area and provided a map of the island which listed the local attractions and good restaurants. We headed over to Long Beach Bay (beautiful-don't miss it), had lunch at Bugaloos and saw Chalk Sound. It was a unique way to see the island and we had a lot of fun. Make sure you wear your sunscreen and don't be too afraid to drive on the "highway" -- it wasn't so bad!

The only negative - watch out for the insurance cost. It doubles the price! We spent over $200 for our scooter day!

This is a family owned company that provides a GREAT way to see the island of Provo (Turks & Caicos). After a quick lesson on an electric bike, you take a quick lesson on an actual vespa scooter. Once you've mastered it - - your awesome tour guides Rosa (daughter) & Nancy (mom) give you a safe, scenic & educational tour of the small island. Driving on the left was new, but you just followed your guide Rosa for a lovely day! A wonderful day of sight seeing, conch farm touring, lunch at Bugaloo's, and island education. Don't miss this! Worth every penny!

My boyfriend and I had been looking for something fun and different to do on our beachy, laid back vacation. We had read amazing reviews on Paradise Scooters and decided to give it a try, even though we had never driven a scooter before and were a little nervous driving on the left side.

Although the tour sounded awesome, we decided to rent a scooter for 24 hours and not do the tour, that way we'd be able to go wherever we wanted on our own terms and timing. Plus we saved a bit of money this way.

Larry promptly set us up with our scooter, showed us a detailed map of the island where he drew out all the spots they recommend to check out (and all the spots they show you on the tour).

Nancy gave my boyfriend a 10-15 minute tutorial on how to ride the bike safely so he was more confident. He got to practice in the parking lot, making all the turns and whatnot before he felt ready. Eventually, he practiced with me on the scooter with him and we were off.

We went to Bugaloo's for lunch which was one of my favorite experiences on the trip so far. It's a hidden gem in the middle of no where, serving some of the freshest conch you will ever have. The restaurant has a cozy shack type feel nestled in between intertwined palm trees. I also had an amazing mixed pina colada drink which was needed after a stressful 5 minute detour on the highway…

We went to Long Bay beach which is on the other side of the island and is where all the kite surfers go as it's a bit more windy. The water here was crystal clear and of course as blue as ever. It's a very calm beach and nearly secluded. We also went to some lookout points that Larry had recommended we check out which is where a lot of local elites live. Beautiful houses, views, and water.

I definitely recommend this trip as it's a fun way to explore and get out for the day. It's much cheaper than cabbing everywhere and gives you an exciting way to get to know the whole island.
