It can be complicated to work out Paris’ public transport system, especially if you’re a first-time visitor. Avoid the stress of figuring out an itinerary by going on a hop-on hop-off combo tour. A Paris sightseeing bus allows you to hop-on and hop-off as often as you like and explore only the sites that interest you. As an added bonus—see the city from a different perspective by going on a Seine River Cruise.
  • Combine a sightseeing bus with a Seine River Cruise
  • Perfect overview of the city for first-time visitors to Paris
  • Hop-on hop-off at only the stops that interest you
  • This tour allows you to explore Paris at your own pace

Very happy with the hop on hop off bus, even though I was on crutches & in a moon boot. We had a fabulous day and to top it off we saw Paris from the hop on hop off boat. Marvellous

Enjoyed the bus tour as well as the river cruise. The commentary on the bus was very helpful. It would have been nice to have a commentary on the river cruise as well.
Not worth the money

The sightseeing bus is not really worth the money. You'd do better getting around on your own. The bus nor the boat had a guide to tell you what you were looking at. We received a pair of headphones for the bus but the recording was useless. You could not really understand what the person was saying (static) and for most of the ride there was some really bad music playing that would put you to sleep. It takes too much time and effort to walk to the various stops. Time wasted. We didn't realize that we would have to get tickets for the boat ride. We were turned away at the boat and told to go to the ticket counter. By the time we waited in line to redeem our vouchers, we missed the boat and had to wait for the next one. Time wasted again. The boat was extremely hot. There was no air circulation because most of the boat was enclosed. Again, no tour guide to tell you about the sites that you were passing. We would have done better getting around on our own.

The bus stops were difficult to find, and we had to follow the bus to find the stop! Once on the bus the driver did not stop at every stop and then when he did stop, we sat for ages waiting for the bus to move again, which was unpleasant when it was 35 degree heat! There was no verbal commentary on the bus, and like with other bus companies there is a rep talking about the sights and history, this was not an option for this bus company. We did not use the boat as again the stops were hard to find and we gave up. The metro is so cheap and very easy to navigate, which in hindsight I wish we had known about in advance as I would have used this as our main mode of transport. You can easily buy bus/boat experiences once you are in Paris and have decided whether this is something that would be worth the money.
Hop on hop off bus

Once we found a bus stop, it was all very easy to use and the drivers were all very friendly and helpful
A disappointing trip
, Jun 2019
We have enjoyed hop-on hop-off adventures in several other major cities. This one did not work. We had trouble finding stops, partly due to strikes and demonstrations in Paris. Routes were being changed during our days. We couldn't find the bus to get to or from our destinations. We ended up using a taxi. The boat was delightful, if you stood outside, in the back. Most of the glassed-in boat was simply too hot on the sunny day we tried it.

Bus basically went in a couple circles on the Blue Line. Had to wait almost 30 minutes for the Red Line connection to Montemarte. Hot day, inside unbearable, no A/C. Probably fine for 1st timers to Paris or those who only have a day or two.Only took it because 1 of our group hadn’t been to Paris in 50 years!

We used the Paris Hop-On Hop-Off sightseeing bus for two days and found it a good and inexpensive way to get around to many of the sites in the city. Unfortunately we did not use the Seine River Cruise part of this tour because it was pretty cold and a little rainy on the days we could have and we just ran out of time. We found the bus pretty convenient and easy to use. It was nice sitting on the top deck, as far as being able to see a lot, but again, the cold and somewhat rainy days made that uncomfortable at times.
Awesome excursion

Wonderful way to see the city. The boat tour was a nice chas nge from sitting on a bus all the time. Loved the experience!
