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 a great way to get your bearings in Paris and see the major sites especially if you don't have a lot of time in Paris. It is a very efficient service however just make sure you allow yourself enough time at each site. I would recommend hoping on the bus early in the morning to see both the blue and red lines. My husband and I arrived in Paris at two pm and did not give ourselves enough time to see everything.

We feel the Hop-On-Hop Off bus is always the best way to get to know a City when you first arrive. We took the two day package in order to take the full trip on the day we arrived and then the second day to utilize the hop on hop off aspect while seeing the sights again.

Tour was very interesting with great information. Meeting points were not very clear though. Did not have to wait long for a bus despite it being winter. One downside was that busses were open at top and too cold for most people.

I always do this type of tour on the first day somewhere to figure out what I want to go back and spend more time at and orient myself to the city. Touristy, yes, but I am indeed a tourist, Sometimes one has to sacrifice looking like a local for practicality, lol! The staff at the Viatour office was fabulous, love the lady nearest the window!
