I booked this for my husband and myself for a first glimpse of Paris. We have never visited this city and wanted to have our first experience be a memorable one. Pierre was a great guide. He loves his city and was excited to show us what he loved about it,.We raved about our experience to our tour group and have talked about it with family and friends. Thank you for an experience we will never forget.Renee Kimes
This was an exceptional tour, not your ordinary tourist trip. We did the night ride through Paris, stopping at the Eiffel Tower to view the lights and enjoy some champagne. Our guide was fun to take with as he pointed out the sites and he took some great photographs for us that I will always cherish with fond memories. Do It!
This was, without a doubt, the highlight of our trip to Paris.My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted a tour of Paris with a different spin. I first learned about Retro Tour via a British TV show called Travel Man: 48 Hours in... and I knew we had to put this on our to do list. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer. Charlie was our guide and he took us to the BEST spot for photos of the Eiffel Tower. We even had champagne!! What an amazing way to see Paris.
Now this was awesome, will definitely do it again! After a long flight my husband fell asleep in the side car a few times, but still enjoyed it a lot! ...... maybe if they had helmets that could broadcast between the driver and the passengers and maybe also receive for questions it will enhance the experience so much more? But after this trip I believe there is no other way to experience Paris. will definitely do it again when we visit Paris.
THE BEST TOUR IN PARIS ! Our driver : Remi, spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable of dates and history. He even took us on the extended version of the tour, because we chose not to end it as scheduled for 40 minutes. So we extended to 1 hour and 30 minutes, because it was a perfect sunny cloudless day and the temperature was in the 60s, a great time for a motorcycle/sidecar ride in Paris. We even went thru the smallest, narrowest, street in Paris, from the year 1200s. So much history, so many buildings, and REMI, navigated so easily, in and out of traffic. I will book this tour again next time as well. Our meeting place was super easy to find for our cab driver. PARIS is a very CLEAN city, and they DO love our american customs of tipping when good service is given. As long as any culture is polite to a native resident, they are happy to see you again, every time. This tour is a hoot, its the bomb, its off the hook, off the chain, out of this world...in other words, its the one tour YOU HAVE TO DO IN PARIS. Think about this: there are 600 tours to do in PARIS...The RETRO TOUR is number 3 MUST DO TOUR , in PARIS. Need I say more ? It really needs to be 1.
Be sure to bring a video camera, or cellphone camera. Many, many photo opportunities, and selfies needed on this tour.
BEST TOUR EVER !
This experience was definitely one of the most memorable things we have done! It was tailored to exactly what we wanted to see and we had such an excellent and fun! time with our tour guide. I HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone who wants to get a one of kind experience and view of Paris! We had such a great time and the pictures that we were able to take were AMAZING! Book this tour ASAP! Well worth every penny!
OMG!!!! I have been to Paris many times and have seen most of the monuments and sites but never have I seen them in a sidecar at night. I cannot begin to convey how much fun it was zooming along central Paris at night in an open sidecar, it was magnificent!! We ended the ride on a bridge with an unobstructed view of Eiffel Tower just in time to pop a bottle of bubbly to enjoy while the Tower sparkled.
The price made me pause before booking, but I would do it again and again...
