The hop on hop off tour was perfect to give us a taste of Paris and let us then decide what we wanted to go back to. Definitely recommended.

On the morning of our arrival from the USA we got on the bus and just rode around the city to get our bearings and to make notes on those places we wanted to get off and visit the next day.We purchased a two day package and it was well worth the price. The buses were clean,the audio provided a good description of each site and the service timely. Highly recommend . Dave and Ann!arie Curtin

We always use Hop on Hop off when traveling! We took full advantage and rode all the routes this time. Feel like we have a really good sense of the city now!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This was the perfect tour to do when you land in Paris. You can ride the bus and take pictures of Paris. If you want to hop off and then get back on there are numerous places to catch the bus. Definitely recommend

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We found our way to the office where we picked up our tickets, headphones and map. We got on the green bus and the trip was perfect for us as we hadn't been to Paris before. We only had one full day in Paris so we got to see a lot of the main sights. The best spot for taking photos was on the top at the very back of the bus!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent value

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed the hop on hop off bus tour.It provided good commentary and good value for us to get around the major sites

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

For my family of three we purchases a 3 day pass. Great way to great around the city. Sometimes the Open Air bus stop signage was a bit hard to locate, but if you missed a bus, there is usually one arriving in about 10 to 15 minutes. The weather was a bit cool so you may wish to have a jacket as it can be windy and cool on the upper deck. An umbrella and sunscreen can be handy on hot days. Very economical way to get around the Light of Lights. Good opportunity to take some great pictures as well.
Bus drivers are courteous and helpful in giving directions!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

One of the best ways of seeing the city! We also bought tickets on the Hop-on-Hop-Off Boat cruise and the combination of the two worked great for us.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great tour of the city and a good way to travel round for the day and see as many of the sites as possible. Ideal if you need to fit in everyone in one weekend.
