Paris

The Retro Tour concept

When three motorcycle enthusiasts and vintage lookers join forces to share their love of the Parisian lifestyle with travelers from around the world, you get the RETRO TOUR Paris concept.

Our idea was born from an obvious fact: Paris is our treasure and we wish to make you discover it in a different way, beyond the conventional and overexploited tourist networks.
As lovers of history, of Parisian life, of its codes but also of its good addresses, we want to offer our visitors the best of our world-famous and renowned city.

Authenticity, sharing and conviviality are the fundamental values of our concept.

It is quite naturally that the expansion was made in franchise on the most beautiful cities and regions of France according to the meetings.

Come aboard, follow your Gentlemen Siders and live the RETRO TOUR experience.

Most fun thing in fun-filled Bordeaux !  This was the highlight of a glorious 4–day trip to Bordeaux. Alex was very knowledgeable, spoke great English, ans the ride was very fun but safe. 10/10- a must do in Bordeaux!

A fun, informative and memorable normandy experience ! We thoroughly enjoyed the Great Escape tour. We were very impressed by the level of detail to visiting the historic sites and beautiful panorama views over Daeuville and Trouville, the professionalism and friendliness of the tour guides. We decided to do the early morning tour which was fantastic... no traffic or tourists on the roads. We were also happy with their covid parameters with cleaning the bikes, helmets and wearing face shields on the helmets. Overall, a memorable and wonderful experience!

An unforgettable experience with an unforgettable guide On a weekend to visit the beautiful city of Deauville and not knowing the area, we had the chance to board Paulette, our side car, driven by a bearded guide really passionate about the history of Normandy cities. It was a wonderful and pleasant moment that made us want to come back this time to discover the landing beaches. Thank you to our guide for his kindness and his culture which allowed us to spend a unique moment.

Tour on Motorcycle with Side Car of Paris. Took this with my husband sister and niece. The guides were knowledgeable of the city and it’s history. They were very flexible with the routes. For example the day before we did a boat tour so we wanted to do other areas. Felt very safe they navigated well and knew the roads well.

Absolutely Wonderful from start to finish I honestly couldn’t say nicer things about this tour. It was hilarious and such a wonderful way to see Paris. Our driver was the lovely and patient Romain, who was so knowledgeable and fun. Our faces hurt from smiling so much. Would 1000% recommend this tour to anyone - even if you’ve seen Paris in all its glory before.
