My favourite thing about this Paris Pass was the "Hop On Hop Off Bus" I bought the 48 hours or the 2 days pass but never get around to using even a third of the things on offer. This was very disappointing because the pick up location of the pass was not convenient to where I was. It can only be picked up in one location and I had to get a taxi to get there. By the time I got it, an hour of my day has been wasted and has passed and I then had to find the nearest pick up point or museum to go. In 60 "must see" on offer, it was way too impossible to even see 10 in two days ..... not unless you only go in and then out the door in half an hour. The most I was able to explore was 4 museums or "must see" places in ONE DAY before they close. The Paris Seine River Cruise was the biggest disappointment. It was the most boring part and the most time wastage. It leaves every hour and I was there half an hour before the scheduled time only to be told that the boat was already full. If I want to get on the next one.... I have to wait in line for another hour. I could not come back later or I would lose my place in the queue. No choice but to wait and waste one hour waiting....then another hour for that trip to circle the river ....with such disappointing commentary. The tour bus have done better. This boat can only be boarded at one place --- and could not get off anywhere. I thought this was one of those hop on hop off boat tour. The Paris Pass used the wrong company which is the Bateaux Parisiens. There was no fee to enter Notre Dame Cathedral ... I didn't have to show pass. There are no quickest way to get in .... even the queues for the ones with the Paris Pass was just as long as the ones with no Paris Pass. In my opinion alone ... I really could not see the point in wasting time figuring out the public transport because I know I would lose time. But I tried to visit all the museums where the Tour Bus stops and drop off/pick up tourists.
