What You Can Expect

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Enjoy it by night !

Taking a hop-on hop-off bus tour around Paris gives you access to all the main attractions, an overview of the city and a means of getting around all in one convenient package. With an open-top, double-decker Big Bus, you get the added bonus of an excellent vantage point for panoramic views.
Your ticket is valid on two routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier and Musée d’Orsay. A complete circle on this route takes about 2 hours 25 minutes. The new Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge and Musée Grevin. A complete circle on this route takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Both routes include informative audio commentary while you see the sights.
Choose a 1-day or 2-day ticket, valid starting the first time you use it, and disembark at any of the 15 stops on the combined routes to explore further on your own. Climb aboard the next bus when you're done sightseeing on foot to continue your circuit of the city. See the Itinerary section below for a list of all the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.
Bus Tour with Cruise:Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a wonderful 1-hour Seine River cruise to either your 1-day or 2-day bus ticket. Seeing Paris from the water offers a different vantage point on this famous city, and it makes a relaxing way to spend an hour.

This was a great way to get around and see the city. We hopped off and did the Arc de Triumph and the Louvre. We also spotted places we went back to explore the next week.

Very easy to get this tour on and off the bus, they have headsets for you to listen about each place as well. I would definately do again.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Excellent! Them buses were a convenient way to get around the city and see the popular sites. I used the BB two days straight and tokens the river cruise, which was also lovely. I used Big Bus tours in Miami, FL and San Franscisco, CA in the US, and the level,of service and value were on par. I will definitely use BB on future trips!
