5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We thought this was a great service in getting around and seeing Paris. The overlapping routes are a great way to get to everything you want to see.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Really easy to get around all of the main tourist attractions.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

excellent tour of Paris with four different routes, which takes in most of Paris and saves you money.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Highly recommended, great way to see the city especially if you are staying centrally. We arrived and got straight on a bus from the Gare du Nord to our hotel. Nice buses and polite helpful drivers, audio was a bit dodgy on some, but move seats and you can find one that works!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Due to the unfortunate circumstances in Paris the weekend we were there The buses were not running 2 of the 3 days we were there so we only got to use part of 1 day. Viator happily refunded us the entire amount for our tour. The little bit we did get to use the bus it was a very fun and easy way for us to get around and see the sites we did see. These busses had an audio jack that gave information as they drove by the sites which was a nice add on. They even provided generic/disposable headphones for us so if you want better headphones bring your own.

Best way to see the city. The only difficulty we had was switching buses to see other parts of the city as there are 4 lines. The buses come frequently so it easy to get off and then hop on the next bus.
