What You Can Expect

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Taking a hop-on hop-off bus tour around Paris gives you access to all the main attractions, an overview of the city and a means of getting around all in one convenient package. With an open-top, double-decker Big Bus, you get the added bonus of an excellent vantage point for panoramic views.

Your ticket is valid on two routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier and Musée d’Orsay. A complete circle on this route takes about 2 hours 25 minutes. The new Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge and Musée Grevin. A complete circle on this route takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Both routes include informative audio commentary while you see the sights.

Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket, valid starting the first time you use it, and disembark at any of the 15 stops on the combined routes to explore further on your own. Climb aboard the next bus when you're done sightseeing on foot to continue your circuit of the city. See the Itinerary section below for a list of all the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.

Bus Tour with Cruise:
Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a 1-hour Seine River cruise to either your 1- or 2-day bus ticket. Seeing Paris from the water offers a different perspective on this famous city, and is a relaxing way to spend an hour.

This is the best way to see all sights in the city. There are plenty of buses and seats on each bus and the buses run on a regular schedule. With each paid ticket headphones and coupon booklet are provided

I love Hop-On Hop-Off buses. I feel they are a great way to see the highlights in any city you are in. This tour was no exception. Takes you to all the highlights in Paris!

Great tour, well worth it. One bit of advice, if you are including a boat cruise down the Seine as part of the ticket, go on the cruise first and then the bus tour. I found that when visitors finish the bus tour at the Eiffel Tower, they all head to the river which means long queues. We had a 2 day ticket and every time we tried to get on a cruise there were too many people, so we missed out, which was a shame.

Both routes are amazing - we truly enjoyed it.

Great bus tour. I am doing it a second time in a few weeks when I return to Paris. Two things to remembers when taking this trip. First, keep an eye on the clock. I missed the connection between the red and blue line, as the blue line shuts down earlier than the red line. This resulted in one long early evening walk back to my hotel. Secondly, the map they hand you when you get on the bus is very distorted and not to scale. This can throw you off by 2-3 blocks when looking for stops.
