People Love Vespas @ Banff By Scooter!
"Went to Banff with a buddy and rented from Banff by Scooter. What a great way to tour around and see everything without being stuck in a car. The scooters are awesome, we didn’t feel like we were riding a toy and price was great, even included gas and helmet and lock! Will do it again next time in Banff and would recommend Banff By Scooter to anyone who likes to have fun."

We loved our ride around Banff on the scooter! Gillian was super kind and patiently taught us how to ride. The views of the Rockies are breathless and easy to appreciate while riding the scooters and the views of the lakes and ponds were magnificent. This is a must for every Banff visitor!

Great service and awesome scooters!! We loved riding the Vespa's around town and out to the sights. It felt like we were in Europe!
Wendy S. (Scottsdale, AZ)
We traveled to Banff with my in-laws and had an amazing time! The highlight of our trip was definitely renting the Vespa scooters for the day. We got to see all the sights in such a unique way. We even had a picnic lunch by the lake! We would highly recommend to anyone visiting Banff. It's a very memorable experience!
