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.

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.
