Get the pass. The free public transport and easy entry (no long queues) to the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay make it so worthwile. The open top bus tour is a bonus (don't bother with the recorded commentary as it doesn't tell you anything you really want to know) and a good way to get between key sites, but the river Seine cruise was disappointing. We went on a night cruise and between all the other boats with glaring lights and blaring music it was not that pleasant. The recorded commentary is a bit ordinary too.
The Paris Pass was wonderful- so helpful and offered entry into so many venues! Using the hop on-hop off bus tour service was so convenient also. This was my first experience using the service of Viator, and I could not have been more pleased. Agents were friendly and helpful as well. Thank you.
Great tool to help you see Paris. We made the mistake of not using the Paris Pass until we had already been in Paris for a couple days, during which we did a lot of walking (as planned). Unfortunately, by the time we were ready to use the Pass, we were a bit tired to make the most of it. Our own fault. We over-estimated our own fitness levels and thought our feet would stand up to more punishment than they did. Highly recommend this to anyone going to Paris, just make sure you plan your visit to get the most out of it.
This is a great thing to have. Just did not have time to do everything we wanted to do. Wish we had done a 4 day pass but we had time restrictions. Getting to pick up pass could have been easier.
Was very useful, we had the two day pass we used train, bus went on boat trip and visited loads of sites, I don't think we would have been able to do so much without the pass.
The Paris Pass is a must if you really want to visit all the landmarks and museums. One ticket covers metro,bus train, locally,tram, funicular railway and water bus, as well as covering most of the sights for free entry, and skip to the front of most of the queues.
Very good value for four day pass. Guide book makes it very easy. Loved the pass into the louvre, skipped a two hour long queue. Make sure you use the pass for the hop on hop off bus.
I had been in Paris before so I knew what I wanted to see, excellent value, went to Versailles jo standing in line, The louvre with no line and use the metro for two days and the hop on hop off for two days very good value
Best for by passing standing in line for many things. Would do this again.
Paris is a wonderful experience-and using Paris Pass makes it enormously better---but know these things. First, to pick up the pass, you need to go over by the Opera House area-for us across town. This is tricky because you want to get it on your first day--jet lag/not knowing the area. So I recommend you take a taxi, pick it up and enjoy that area of town for a bit. Then, READ THE BOOK. A wealth of information that will help you plan your trip. We had a four day pass. The bus and the boat ride helps orient you to the city, so do these early on. The passes to the museums make it amazing in avoiding the huge lines. Still go to the big museums EARLY. But we basically walked right in to the Lourve, L'Orsay, and a number of smaller ones. Don't miss Salvatore Dali's Museum in Montemonte-and take the little train ride---get the right train--around town. Go to Rodin's Museum. The pass does not cover the Eiffel Tower-so plan around that. And it does cover Versaille but not Marie Antionette's village in the back-so pay for this because it's wonderful. Hope this helps--incredible experience and Paris Pass made it easier, and cut the line times enormously giving us more time to---enjoy.
This is absolutely marvelous! We fully maximized our time by avoiding museum lines; the convenience of using Hop on Hop Off and the metro was invaluable.
The Hop on Hop off bus was an excellent way get orientated in Paris, also skipping the long lines at the museums etc.
