Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We did the evening city lights tour and it was AMAZING and so much fun!!! I would highly recommend doing a vespa tour regardless of time of day because you get to really see the city and get a good feel of the culture. Thierry was the absolute perfect guide for us as he is like a mini encyclopedia of Paris knowledge, which made our experience even better. Since we did the evening tour towards the end of March it was freezing, but our overall experience with Thierry outweighed how cold we were.

“Great way to see Paris”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We really enjoyed our whirlwind tour of Paris on the vespa, it was great following Thierry and stopping at all the sights; he was very informative and we felt we gained lots of useful knowledge. We did the tour on our 1st day, which was great as you really get your bearings and are able to decide where you would like to re visit!
The company is excellent, super efficient with a personal touch.. which makes the trip even more special!!!

“No better way to see and enjoy Paris”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

I booked this trip for Valentine's weekend... so of course there was every possibility it would be cold and wet. In the event... on the chosen day it was tipping down and very cold - and we decided it was probably better to postpone... Left bank scooters we perfectly charming about this... and we did the tour the tour the following morning when luckily for us the day broke with bright blue skies and winter sunshine. Both of us own Vespas and use them daily in London... but Paris seemed easier - certainly in the area we toured. The guide was funny and very knowledgable. You will learn all sorts of things that you won't find in the guide books. I decided to keep the scooters for the following two days and we just had the greatest time running around central Paris like locals! We were provided with a sat nav and never once got lost... the only thing we had difficulty with is finding the elusive petrol stations - they are mostly under ground in car parks and we didn't manage to find one... Renting the scooters totally made out trip though... three times round the Arc de triomphe...(and still alive) I consider myself a Parisian!!

“Effortless & Brilliant”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

A quick line to say thanks to Adam, Ben and all the team at Left Bank Scooters for looking after our requirements this weekend.
At just 1hour notice Adam & Ben arrived at our Hotel next to Eiffel Tower with 2 gleaming Vespa Scooters. A short transaction of paperwork and scooter orienteering and we were on our way buzzing around Paris for the weekend.
On our final night we took our scooters to the Pigalle district so we could visit Moulin Rouge, rang Adam "Could you please collect the scooters from Moulin Rouge?...."Of course! No problem"
What else can I say???....great guys and absolutely fantastic to deal with. They are opening up in Amsterdam too in a months time so will be using them again when in the Dam during May 2013....Good luck with the business expansion, hope its a success because you certainly deserve it to be, cheers Mike & Dan
