What You Can Expect
The hop-on hop-off tour by open-top bus includes four interconnecting routes that provide convenient transportation across the city; see the Itinerary section below for the list of stops. Hop off whenever you wish to visit attractions at your leisure, and when you’re on the bus, listen to recorded commentary about Paris via personal earphones. Perhaps visit museums like the Louvre, historical landmarks like Notre-Dame or architectural icons like the Eiffel Tower. Relax at Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg), ride the Montmartre funicular or explore popular quarters like the Marais and St-Germain-des-Prés.
When you’re ready to see the city from a different perspective, head to the river for the hop-on hop-off boat cruise along the Seine. Eight stops give you access to locations like Musée d'Orsay, home to a large collection of Impressionist art, and Hotel de Ville, the city hall.
You can ride the buses and the riverboat as much as you want for the duration of your selected pass.

Great way to see Paris. L'Open Tour has four different bus lines so you can really see most of the city. Buses made frequent stops at all attractions and we got to see everything we wanted to see in Paris.
wonderful and informative
Very good experience. Nice buses with access to four routes and plenty of stops, including a river cruise. Well worth the money.
This is really the only way to see ALL of paris easily and inexpensively. We got the bus and boar pass which was great. We got to see Paris by night from the Seine. The stops were well marked and really easy to follow on the map which covers all 4 routes. Good value would highly recommend
Best way to see any new city. We did the 3 day and enjoyed it, even in the bitter cold. River Cruise was a bit of a bust as basically you are seeing everything you have seen on land, but from a boat. I'd probably skip it next time.

I loved it. The information provided about each attraction was outstanding. I rode on the top and was able to see the city up close. It was easy on and easy off. I would highly recommend this.
Three Day Pass proved excellent
The Hop On Hop Off tour was great for Paris as it was a long way round to see everything and the best way to see so much. The audio guides were very interesting and informative. The river cruise was very popular and it was a great way to see things from a different vantage point. Would recommend this company to other people and would use them again on another trip.
no complaints. love the many route choices. river cruise was better than London. recordings were very informative and well timed. very little waiting.
