© ©Viator Inc

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

This Big Bus is much better than City Sight Seeing . Big Bus last bus is around 7 PM, while City Sight Seeing stops at 4 PM in every countries I visited. Big bus also have more (frequent) buses. The most important thing is they have stops I can find, while City Sight Seeing has no stops, and in the afternoon, there is nobody standing there, and you have to guess where you should wait. I found Big Bus is much convenient.

Took the Big Bus tour in the afternoon. Took the red line to where we could get on the blue line. Seemed the most practical for what we wanted to see. Was a good way to see the sights!

Big Bus started the inititive of having a tour guide some time in June 2018. We had Ms. Gaby on our Big Bus on the Red route explaning so much more information about monuments, heritage with good humor. Having a tour guide on the bus was very entertaining rather than the boring pre-recorded voice and horrible music (too loud for my taste) when there is no commentary.

I big thumbs up for Big Bus for the tour guide innitiative . if they continue with tour guide service , I may do it again in my next visit.

The hop on hop off bus is great for just enjoying the city and getting some rest from all the walking. I used it more for rest than actually to get from point to point, though it will do that. I would say you need to realize it can be crowded at times so you aren't guaranteed to be at the top. It does come at very frequent intervals so you rarely wait more than a few minutes for a bus. I really enjoyed it and have used it 3 seperate days on a couple trips now.

Great way to see Paris. Anastasia was really awesome and provided us with a lot of information and history. Highly recommend Big Bus.

Wild visiting Paris in April we signed up for the bus 2 day tour. The two loops, northern and southern, that the bus takes allowed us to see or visit just about everything we wanted to do while in Paris. It even gave us the opportunity to find out about landmarks , such as Rodin's The Thinker, that we would not have otherwise seen because of their location. Having the two-day trip allowed us to go back to relook some of the things that we missed while we were focusing on our first day stops. Overall I say the big bus is a great way to get around Paris and probably other places it serves also.
