A very fun, unique way to experience Paris
Sep 2021
This was my wife’s choice of an activity, but I ended up thoroughly enjoying it too. Our guide, Louis, was great fun and we had a wonderful time zooming all around Paris. We felt safe, even though the Paris traffic is challenging; Louis was a very good and obviously experienced driver. We’ve been to Paris a couple times, but this tour gave us a different perspective of the city, from the actual street level, with cars. We have always relied on walking and the Metro; never rented a car, so the experience with the sidecar was fun and interesting.

Three generations had a blast
We were a party of 6, ranging in age from 15-72. We kept the tour as a surprise for the kids and grandparents - their faces when the beautiful bikes and sidecars showed up were priceless. EVERY member of our family thinks of this experience as a highlight of our trip, and we are still talking about it. Last night at dinner, grandpa said “that tour on the motorcycles - I just couldn’t believe it, it was wonderful.” The guys are so much fun, they are knowledgeable about the area, and it’s clear they love their city. We felt safe the entire ride - but it’s still an exhilarating blast! Do not hesitate to book this tour, it will be a memory you keep forever. Paris est une fête!

It's a Blast! Unique way to see the City of Lights
Jul 2021 • Couples
Truly one of the most fun city tours I've ever taken. Julien, our charming Gentleman Sider & Co-founder, took us on a magical motorcycle ride through the streets of Paris, while providing interesting facts, history and places of interest along the way. I was laughing and smiling the entire time. HIGHLY recommend this experience!!

May 2021
We're still laughing at the fun we had on this tour! Even the concierge at the hotel was taking photos of the bike! It was an amazing way to see the city, get some fresh air, and hear some stories about Paris. We loved the personalization and the photos from this tour and will definitely be sending friends to take the same trip!

A free afternoon on our Paris tour. Booked months in advance and not a motorcycle fan the wife and I took an one hour tour of the landmarks. Rain was not part of the plan however the grin on the wife's face for the next two hours was my highlight of the trip. If you get wet I sugest Jack Daniel's.

Fantastic time on Retro Tours!
Oct 2019
We were a party of 4 and took a retro tour and it was fantastic. They picked us up at our hotel, and we drove all around Paris, including the Latin Quarter and Sacre Coeur. It was a hgihlight of our trip to Paris. We felt safe the entire time. The drivers were excellent. Julia a mototcycle racer and is very professional! They talked about the city of Paris and pointed out various attractions. We'd definitely do it again.

Great Experience
Nov 2018
Pick up and drop off from our river cruise ship. Great way to see some of the sights and sounds of Paris. We went down the Champs-elysees up to Mont Martre. Had a short walk around then back to our ship.We swapped half way, from pillion to side-car to take photos.

Amazing adventure on 3 wheels !!!!
Sep 2019
You must try this Tour, this is the best way to visit the most amazing parts of Paris, avoiding traffic and stopping in all the big places in Paris.
Julia was amazing !!! She explained to us a lot of things that only locals can know, she showed us Banksy's art all over Paris, great places to stop and take amazing photos.
Julia drives amazing, you will feel safe at all times, a must try for all tourists in Paris..

She can also take you to Versailles (next time we will try that)

Thank you Julia !!!!

We booked the 90 minute tour and felt like we saw so much more of Paris then if we had ventured out on our own. We loved everything about our tour. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and funny, making the whole experience enjoyable for our family. Job well done! I will highly recommend this to anyone going to Paris.

Retro Motorcycle and Sidecar Tour of Paris
Aug 2019 • Couples
Today my wife and I took a motorcycle sidecar ride with Julia from Retro Tours of Paris. Julia picked us up at our Uniworld cruse ship on the Seine River and drove us through the streets of Paris to the top of Montmartre. It was a once in a lifetime experience for us and a great thrill. We visited the Sacre Coeur Cathedral on the top of Montmartre and the view of Paris was spectacular. Julia is a professional motorcycle racer and was ranked number two in France. She drove very slow and safely for us. Julia was very knowledgeable about Paris and pointed out many sites and explained their significance. I highly recommend the trip and it is a wonderful thrill even for people in their late sixties like us.
