    Truly the best and most fun way to tour the city of Paris!!!! The hour and a half was a perfect amount of time for us to get a lay of the land. Our guide was very knowledgable and made it a good time. Definitely recommended.

    This was our favorite experience in London. Allen, our driver, was friendly and gave us great views of the city with our tour. He even provided options for additional routes and gave us little insider tid bits about areas. The side car ride was unique and unexpectedly comfortable. I recommend Retro Side Car Tours as a must if anyone has the chance

    Cruising through the side streets of Paris. Window shopping and having great views of the city in the open air.

    Our tour guide/motorcyclist was awesome! He was really nice and had a fun attitude. Even though neither of us had been on a motorcycle before he made us feel safe and was an excellent driver. He also took some great photos of us in front of the Eiffel Tower. 10/10 recommend

    This was a highlight on our trip. Greg was our guide and he was friendly and very knowledgeable. He shared the history of all the landmarks and notice we enjoy architecture and shared his knowledge on that also. We highly recommend this tour and ask for Greg. He is amazing.

    We went around central Paris. My son (8) and I had a blast. We both were happy - I got to see Arc du Triomph and the fashion district; he got to ride in a sidecar with no walking required. Plus, it was just cool see Paris on the back of a motorcycle. Simon, our your guide, was very helpful.

    This is a must-do when you visit Paris. I scheduled a 1.5 hour tour. Go on your first day so you know where you want to spend your time on your your trip. We saw so many cool places in a short timeframe. We even drove by “Emily in Paris” apartment! I felt safe the entire time and would do this again. Thank you for such a great experience!

    Don't miss this one! Highlight of my trip. An absolute MUST if you're visiting Paris for the 1st time. Go on the first day of your trip to get a sense of where you want to visit. I scheduled a 1.5 hour trip - it was sooooo much fun. My driver, Charlie was awesome! He spoke excellent English and took us to several places in a short time frame. We also stopped for a picture of us with the Eiffel Tower in the background. I was also in touch with Julien, the CEO of the company. He was very gracious and accommodating. Very helpful and friendly. Thank you for everything, Julien and Charlie! I was very impressed by this tour and hope I can do it again next time! Note: if it rains, they will not reschedule you, the tour will still still be on.

    Must do tour in paris, 40 minutes is enough, i did it twice in 6 months, guides are very friendly and pro

    On our brief stop in Paris, this was the perfect way to see the beauty of the city at twilight… in the hour and half we covered a lot of the city! Sevejen (apologies if spelt incorrectly) was our guide and did an amazing job of looking after us and making us feel safe, all the while having fun! Drinking champagne at the Eiffel Tower after dark was the icing on the cake! Thank you very much for the experience!
