7-hour ride through Paris streets

This tour will give you the opportunity to discover most of Paris sights. Lose yourself in the city narrow & picturesque streets. Driving a colorful vintage-style Vespa scooter experience what it feels to be a Parisian for a day. Ride down the famous Champs-Elysées Avenue from the Arc de Triomphe to the Petit-Palais then zoom to the Seine river to admire the beautiful cathedral of Nôtre-Dame. Your Vespa will give you the freedom to move from one place to another in no time. In the afternoon stop in front of the Eiffel Tower in a place far from the crowd to take memorable pictures & savor delicious French pastries!


This is a self-driven Vespa tour.
I do not recommend this tour if you have never ridden a scooter or a motorcycle before.
For obvious safety reasons drivers without the necessary experience at riding a scooter won't be allowed to take the tour. I reserve the right at my absolute discretion to terminate the participation of any rider who is unable to ride the Vespa safely.


Here is a non exhaustive list of the places you'll have the opportunity to see or go:

Opéra Garnier
Louvre Palace
Pont-neuf bridge
Place Vendôme
Place de la concorde
Champs-Elysées Avenue
Grand & Petit Palais
Pont Alexandre III
Dôme of the Invalides
Arc de Triomphe

The tour can be customized according to your needs. Please contact me if you have any special requests.
