    I would recommend this to any friend or family member. It was SUCH a thrill exploring Paris with Max as our driver. Those we passed by offered us smiles and one even offered to take a photo of us with our phone. My sister and I got great insights into Paris' history and architecture as we toured the city on his motorcycle. He was entertaining, kind, and generous with our final destination. This is a MUST for anyone's itinerary!
    Amazing time in Paris

    Alan & Roman were THEE BEST. My friends and I enjoyed each spot. They provided commentary, stories and were expert photographers. We have an amazing pictures and memories to memorialize our time in Paris. THANK YOU
    Best experience in Paris so far!

    We loved every second of our tour with Michael! From Sacre Cour to the Latin Quarter, we got to explore alleys and neighborhoods where no bus tour could go. Plus the fun of being on a motorcycle with a sidecar 😁!! People waved, smiled, and laughed with us. Michael obviously loves Paris and is a fun, upbeat guide. We highly recommend.
    A must do!

    Max was an absolutely amazing tour guide and completely customized everything for us. He was a delight to talk to and we were able to see all the major sights.
    Having been living in...

    Having been living in Paris for the last month, I was afraid this tour would be a bit “silly”, but I had first-timers to Paris with me and we had a fabulous, fun ride with delightful guide/drivers. Everywhere we went, people smiled and waved. A great time washad by all!
    An adventure filled fun experience!!

    It was fun traveling on the motorcycle and truly experiencing Paris with our friendly guide! (We wish he could have spoken better English though and that they had a smaller helmet size too for us women) what a FUN time… would definately recommend this to a friend up for an adventure!!
    Super fun experience

    Max our tour guide/driver was super fun and very knowledgeable!! We had a great time! When we bring our daughter back we will do the vintage side car tour again!
    So Great!

    I am so glad I booked this tour! I booked the tour because it seemed like a super cool way to show my 19-year old son around Paris. (I can speak French and I lived there for a year many years ago.) Well, my son had such bad allergies the day of the tour that he didn't want to go so I went on my own. I requested an English-speaking guide so my son could understand, so my guide, Gregoire, was surprised I could speak French and I wanted to speak in French the whole tour because I never get to speak it in the US. I decided to ask if we could veer off from the traditional tour because I already knew a lot of those places. He was completely flexible and took me to the places I had never seen before like the Ritz Hotel. He also drove right down to the bank of the Seine because I hadn't been down there this trip yet. It sound stupid but it's really kind of magical being right next to the Seine. We did go up to Montmartre - I got some great photos of the Moulin Rouge on the way and some great shots of Paris from Sacre Coeur. He also showed me some of these great hidden gem places with stories behind them (one was a square I can't remember the name of (not Place de Vosges) I was really interested in the story of Haussmann and his transformation of Paris - which some like and some don't - but the story fascinated me. What made the trip for me was the fact that I had such a friendly and engaging guide with a great sense of humor. He adapted easily to my changes in the route. He was about the age of my son so you'd think we'd really have nothing to talk about but we actually shared stories and had a lot of laughs along the way! Even though my son didn't go, this ended up being one of my favorite memories of the trip because I got to connect with a local person for a couple of hours and speak French too!
    The best tour in Paris!

    Greg was amazing showing us Paris! We have been to Paris a few times, however, this time was our absolute favorite having the opportunity to see Paris in more detail. We would definitely do this again! Thank you Greg for the best tour ever!
    Highlighr of five weeks in France.

    I’m tracking the path of an 18th century woman and Clement found the streets she where she lived and shopped so I really felt I was walking in her foosteps. It was great that he followed my interests rather than some prescrbed route. I’m only sorry I didn’t have cash for a tip because he certainly deserved one,

    Keep it a secret, you just discovered that Clement is an highlander.. Glad he could show you around as you want! Thank you and keep living your experience by following us on Instagram and Facebook @retrotourparis. Enjoy your day, Julien
    Paris Motorcycle Sidecar Tour

    Terry was very knowledgeable about all the sights and areas we saw in Paris. The sidecar ride was an unusual and exciting way to see Paris. Terry knew the streets of Paris very well and we always felt secure on our tour.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Terry can drive the streets with his eyes closed if you ask him :) Thank you for your review and keep living your experience by following us on Instagram and Facebook @retrotourparis. Julien
    Best way to see key areas of Paris!
    Lori_C, Apr 2022
    We cruised along where big busses can’t go and it was so much fun! Our driver/guide, Derrick, was knowledgeable on history & architecture: an amazing experience.
    If you can, do this early in your visit!
    Lisa_M, Nov 2021
    Amazing way to see Paris - the big bits and the little bank street lovely parts. Felt very safe and warm. Great hosts and friendly, informative insights as you go. The only think you note is that for our group of four it’s two bikes, so one in sidecar and one on bike behind the rider. Would do again!
    Best way to see Paris!

    This was amazing!! Romain was so accommodating, took us everywhere we wanted to go and made some great suggestions. By far, the highlight of our trip! Appreciated the hotel pick up too.
    Absolutely Fantastic

    This tour was by far the best experience we had in Paris. So exciting with the wind in your face. The areas we were taken to we wouldn’t have discovered on our own. The riders were friendly and informative. I would more than recommend this tour in fact if I came back I would do the 3 hr tour.
    Un voyage dans le temps

    Excellent après-midi avec Louis dans des quartiers de Paris dont je ne soupçonnais même pas l'existence. On n'avais plus du tout l'impression d'être a Paris. Un merveilleux dépaysement. Merci Louis !
