We used the Paris Pass at the beginning of our trip, while we were relatively fresh, and saw quite a lot. We also plotted out which museums were open what days before we went, so we didn't waste time each day trying to figure out where to go. We have a good background in art history and history, so we spent more time at the museums than Rick Steves suggested because there was so much to see; still this was a good deal for us. We went to the museums we were interested in; being able to skip the long lines at the Louvre, Orangerie, etc. was priceless. Having the Metro Visite card in the first place was helpful, as you only had to keep track of the one ticket. But afterwards, a 5-day Metro Visite card by itself is not worth buying. A 5-day card is 35.70 euros, and a carnet of 10 tickets is 13.70, so you'd have to travel the Metro 4-5 times/day to make the Visite card pay for itself. All in all, I would buy the Museum pass next time, but for a first time for my daughter in Paris the Paris Pass was a great introduction.
The train tickets were huge!! Definitely recommend getting a Paris pass ESP in summer time when it is so crowded
Very useful pass for self tour in Paris. We visited lot of places by skip line. Definitely recommend to our friends who plan to visit Paris!
unlike other providers, you have to collect the pass from a shop and dont have the option to have it sent to your home.
also for the hop on hop off tour you have to go and find the shop to collect the ticket rather than just use the pass. however for museums etc great to get to see as many museums as you like without having to join a long queue. the view from Montparnasse was great and much recommended and also the tour of the opera. the pass offers a lot and we would have liked to fit in more..
We used the heck out of our travel and attractions pass. I was especially happy to find we could indeed use the Pass to get to, and tour, Versailles (no skip the line, but it moved pretty well). You do have to pay to see the gardens. Skipped the lines at the Louvre and other museums, as well as Seine River tour. Absolutely worth it!

The Paris Pass is the best travel tool. No waiting on LONG lines at major museums. Wonderful views from the top of the Arc de Triomphe and Montparnasse Tower. A lovely little Tourist Train ride around Montmartre. Unlimited metro/bus access. A great boat ride on the Seine. Fantastic Hop On/Hop Off bus ride. We definitely used this pass to the max and would highly recommend it to everyone spending time in Paris.
Great way to see Paris! Also, you can avoid the lines at the museums. Well worth the money.
Great package and flexibility. Saves time and frustration. Get it, if you are in Paris, 2,3 and 6 day options. Finding pick up point is tricky, even for taxis. Verify before using taxi. Once obtained, you are on your way to great fun.
I bought a 2 day pass. The pick-up place was easy to find . Just follow the directions given on the invoice.
I was in Paris for 2 nights 3 days and started using the pass later on the first day. We used the underground a lot so that was worth it. The first day we did the boat ride only as we walked everywhere.
The second day we climbed the Eiffel Tower stairs (price not included in the pass and is 4 euro per person), we went to the Louvre and saw the Mona Lisa as some of the others, we went to Musee D'Orsay, hop on hop off tour and The sacred heart Cathedral and the Arc d'Trimph .The last day we went to the Monmarter Tower and the Noterdame Cathedral . To climb the Cathedral the line was almost 3 hrs and is not covered by the pass and we had no time to wait. Th pass makes you go through the Louvre line faster than the rest. and we still were able to used the underground pass to get to the airport. Well worth it. There is a lot more in the pass than you can actually see. It was summer June , 2014 . We just came back so expect huge lines and busy streets every where,
The attraction pass, museum pass and metro tickets are definitely the way to go! Saving time by avoiding long lines is the only way to get the most out of our vacation.
Easy to purchase, easy to pick up and even easier to use! If your in Paris for 2 days minimum get this pass!!
Walked straight into the Lourve past huge queues, bus ride, boat trip and countless museums this pass easily pays for itself! We just wish it included the Eiffel Tower!!
The Paris Pass was so good and ready to use. The hardest part was to select what we could fit in, in the time we had as there was so much to choose from. The guys at the chocolate shop were really great with what to do and how to use it. Thanks
Paris pass is an amazing tool to make my trip of Paris wonderful and exciting. It indeed saved me a lot,money and time. It has become the first pleasant memoir and souvenir the coming years reminding me of the Paris trip.
Amazing. This was the best pass ever. I highly recommend this pass.
When I saw the Paris pass at a lower cost, Viator matched it. It was worthwhile as we were able to get in front of a few long lines at museums. We also had the benefit of the hop on hop off bus for a day and a Seine boat ride. We purchased the 4 day pass which also gave us 5 days of train/ bus transportation. It was all worth it.
We absolutely loved our Paris Pass, we had no difficulty finding the pick up point for the tickets (we did research on our iPad prior, having read the review about difficulty finding the place) and the guy there was fantastic with all the information.
We were confident having our Metro/Bus ticket and used it everyday.
We went into so many Museums that we may I not have otherwise ventured into, wether it was for a short or long visit everyone of them had points of interest, and the skip the queue was great also.
We would highly recommend this to all our friends going to this wonderful City.
I used the pass extensively. I felt especially smug as I flashed my pass and was able to pass folks standing in the rain waiting to get into the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay and other attractions. I took advantage of the metro card to explore Paris extensively and I visited the Louvre several times, taking advantage of the unlimited entry benefit. I was going to go to Versaille, until I realized that it was the Kany/Kim wedding weekend. Instead, i explore Montmarte, again using the pass to take the train tour of the area. Well worth every penny!
We didn't use the buses, but subway, or Metro was a breazer. Need some brainwork to connect the dots on the Metro maps but overall convenient way to get around. The museum card worked perfect, no lines, not a single problem. Hop on/off bus the good way to start Paris adventure. Thanks Viator!
A great option. Enjoyed very much. Wish the pick up we're a little easier or more options available to pick up actual pass. Also had to pick up hop on hop off bus pass the day of use which cut into our day a bit. Otherwise all great !
the paris pass was very good but . . .it may not be obviously clear that before you can get on a bus to tour the city, you need to get your ticket from the ticket/ attraction office. when we picked up our paris pass, this vital information was not passed on to us.(you can find this info in small print in the booklet handouts) may i suggest more emphasis on this point ( it nearly ruined our limited time/itinery in paris
