City Gay Tours 
offers you this exhilarating private day trip by Vespa scooter, your knowledgeable French tour guide will take you in about an hour to a royal getaway: the palace of Versailles, home of three generations of kings from Louis XIV to Louis XVI and queen Marie-Antoinette.

Depending on your mood and center of interest, we may focus on the palace area or drive away beyond Versailles on small countryside roads and through some quaint villages.

Your way back to Paris from a different route will be filled with even more surprises and with the assurance that your day will be filled with lovely memories.

    • Starting from Paris you’ll drive leisurely and safely your own automatic Vespa scooter (See Driver’s License requirement) and follow your French guide on scenic roads to Versailles. This route going through a posh and quite green suburb of Paris is relaxing, inspiring and filled with surprises all along.
    • ​As we’ll arrive, we will go for a walking tour of the gardens, best on week-ends during the Musical Fountain show. We may also drive into the park towards the estate of the Trianon/Domain of Marie-Antoinette.
    • ​With the freedom that your scooter gives you, we may explore beyond Versailles the rural charms of countryside small towns, quaint hamlets, farmland and forest. There, we’ll have the choice of some charming local restaurants for lunch unless we decide to pack some sandwiches for picnic.
    • ​Finally, we’ll take a different route to drive back to Paris. This will give you new exciting sceneries, like an amazing view over Paris from another royal estate. We will enter the city along the Seine river and drive by the Eiffel tower to end your tour on a high note.
  • Driving in and around Paris is truly easy with a high degree of safety. Our fellow Vespa drivers are always surprised how respectful car drivers are towards two-wheel drivers. Because safety is our priority, to have fun comes with the assurance that you are confident at the wheel of a scooter.
