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.

I was afraid to go on the ride because it was cold and I had already put my Vespa in the garage at home in the US. Note back, said just bundled up, it will be fun. My guide, Terry, was fantastic. We had a one-on-one tour, I rode a Vespa behind his and he gave me interesting factoids about... More

My husband and I were on this tour in October, 2015, but the app won't let me go back that far. My husband is a terrible scooter driver, but it was still one of the highlights of our trip. We were with one other couple and our guide (Thierry is how I think his name is spelled). What an amazing... More

We are immensely grateful to Thierry from #LeftBankScooters for bringing us all around Paris on Vespas and taking great shots of us. He is such a kind, fun, knowledgable and friendly man. Pleasantly suprised that he is quite well acquainted with Singapore and even conversed in good Malay to us, something very heartwarming!😍 Riding a Vespa is indeed the very... More

This is the second time I've rented a scooter from Left Bank Scooters and I had even more fun this time. This time we were traveling with another couple and they rented a scooter as well. Again, not only is this the quickest way to get around the city but it is the most exciting as well. These scooters are... More

Thierry was a fun tour guide, and made the ride a thrilling experience. We zig zagged through traffic, and even took on the circle at the Arc De Triumph during rush hour! Marion and Thierry made the morning registration and safety briefing very easy to understand. And within a few minutes we were off and riding! Make sure you have... More

A big 'MERCI BEAUCOUP' to Thierry for playing such a key part in what was a perfect 3-hours for me and my now fiancée. I'd always planned to propose while on the tour and had been speaking to Thierry a good 3-4 weeks before the event to discuss the route and agree on the perfect setting. He even agreed to... More

This tour was the highlight of my entire trip! My tour guide, Thierry, who is a celebrity in his own right, picked me up from my hostel and we were off to Versailles.

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
