What You Can Expect

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

See Notre-Dame Cathedral on a hop-on hop-off tour of Paris!

There’s no better way to see all of Paris’ top sights than by an open-top Big Bus. Choose a 1-day or 2-day pass, and create your own sightseeing itinerary to discover Paris at your own pace. Sit back and relax on the Classic Route, which takes 2 hours and 25 minutes, or the new Montmartre Route, which takes 1 hour and 15 minutes, while listening to entertaining and informative audio commentary about Paris’ history, architecture, monuments, museums and more.

If you want to explore by foot, hop off at any of the 15 stops around the city. Buses depart regularly from each stop, so you can hop back on wherever, and whenever, you like. See the Itinerary for details on discounts plus a list of the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.

Hop off to pay a visit to the dazzling Eiffel Tower, or pay homage to the city's art scene with a visit to the world-famous Louvre — home to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Have your camera ready to capture sights of the grand Opéra Garnier (also known as Palais Garnier), and look out for must-see sights such as the Musée d’Orsay, the glamorous Champs-Elysées and more. On the new Montmartre Route, check out the picturesque area of Montmartre with stops at the Moulin Rouge, Sacré Coeur, Gare du Nord and Musée Grevin.

Ticket with Cruise:
Upgrade your 1-day or 2-day hop-on hop-off sightseeing pass with a relaxing 1-hour boat cruise along the Seine!

Our family had a fantastic break in Paris. The Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Tour combined with the River Seine cruise was excellent value for money. It is a great way to familiarise yourself with the many sights of this wonderful city, giving you plenty of opportunity to go back and spend more time at the various places once you have been around and seen everything. Highly recommended!
