What You Can Expect

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Enjoy it by night !

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.

We used the hop-on hop-off as basically our taxi to get around the city. It was perfect! Saw all the places we wanted and more! Great audio as well.

great way to explore Paris. Used our two day tickets to see all the sights but also to get around Paris as well. Had issues with the validation of our tickets on the bus but we were taken to their main ticket office which was on the bus route and it was all sorted out there and then and we continued on our trip. So can't fault the service at all.

Big bus never disappoints so would recommend them to anyone. The bus was quite late but we still made our tour and the driver who arrived first told us to sit inside because it was too cold to wait for the next bus.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

The tour was amazing. Best experience! All the stops are convenient located near the sights. Only con was that the wifi is advertise as free but it and #39;s actually limited and you cannot longer sign in once you the allotted time which you don and #39;t know until you cannot longer sign in. Great experience!

Big Bus Paris is cost effective, easy, and efficient. We used our two day pass to travel both the Classic and Montmarte routes. The audio was good, the drivers managed the roads with ease, and the service is very reliable. Being above ground is great considering the beauty of the city. I highly recommend using this mode of transportation in any busy city.

We were only in Paris for the one night, traveling by train from Amsterdam. We arrived to Paris at about 2:00 in the afternoon, and we were able to hop on the bus right outside of the train station. We rode both the Red Line and Blue Line within the short amount of time we were there. We left the following day, and we saw all the sights we wanted. The audio on the bus was also very insightful, and interesting. This was the perfect way to travel around the city for us! I have already recommended the Big Bus Tour to a few people.
