To see more of the French capital—and discover lesser-known gems—book this one-of-a-kind Paris tour in a vintage motorcycle sidecar. Your unusual vantage point showcases the City of Lights’ world-famous attractions, from the iconic Eiffel Tower to the elegant Champs Elysées. Let your guide do the driving while you settle back to enjoy a fast-paced sightseeing adventure.

What to Expect

Depending on the tour chosen, either meet your driver at Place de la Concorde, famous for its ancient Egyptian obelisk, or enjoy front-door pickup at your hotel. With several tours available, choose the itinerary that matches your interests.

Get ready to journey back in time as you cruise past iconic, historic monuments in a vintage motorcycle sidecar. Your guide shares the secret—and sometimes saucy—stories behind the capital as you ride.

The shorter Retro-Classic tour is a great introduction for first-time visitors, while those who want a longer tour can choose the Great Escape tour or evening Retro by Night tour. Or, opt for the half-day tailor-made option and have your tour customized around the topic of your choice, from shopping to gastronomy. You can even opt for a full-day tour to Giverny or Versailles for the ultimate sidecar experience.

Your tour ends at the original departure point.

One of the Highlights of My 5 Decades

As a rule, I don't gush. But I am going to gush about this. I admit that when I first looked at RetroTour many months before my trip to Paris, I thought it seemed a little pricey. All I can say, after taking the plunge...More
