Joy-Riding Through Paris

You’ll start your tour by following the English-speaking guide through Paris on a retro motorcycle. There may be traffic on the city streets, but you’ll navigate around it to better enjoy sightseeing around the City of Lights. The customizable tour follows the best route to show you the landmarks and attractions you want to see.

Panoramic Views From the Eiffel Tower

A must-see spot in Paris, the Eiffel Tower is one of the most important stops to make during your guided tour. The imposing structure is a sight to behold as you ride towards it, and you’re going to want to snag dozens of photos. You can wait until you arrive at the tower’s feet or have your sidecar passenger grab some shots or video on your approach.

Expect insight about the famous structure from your guide, including its history and significance to French culture. You can purchase admission to the second floor to witness the stunning panoramic views of the lively city. Viewing lenses are available to get a closer look at France’s capital.

The Many Monuments and Attractions of Paris

There’s much you can see on your highlight tour of Paris, and you won’t want to miss the treasured stories relayed by your guide. Hear about the architectural wonders of the Arc de Triomphe, including the Roman inspirations and Napoleon’s vision for the impressive arch.

You’re not going to want to miss the Hotel des Invalides, the 17th-century estate served many purposes, first as a hospital for old and disabled war veterans. Listen closely as your guide explores the complex’s past, from King Louis XIV’s initial concept to the addition of Napoleon’s tomb. Marvel at the ornate touches, specifically the 12.65kg (27.9lbs) of gold leaf decorating the Dome.
