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. Routes include informative audio commentary in 11 languages, or an English-speaking live guide 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.

Staff are not very helpful nor welcoming. They are on their own world. The home office was the same, cold.The red line has a person guide but not really talking and let the audio machine works for him.

This was the only way we would have been able to see the whole city. We bought a 2 day pass and it was perfect.

Sarah was really informative and it was more interesting listening to her than the pre-recorded info.

At Saturday there was no Bus and no Sightseeing and no informationplease give me back my Moneya big Desaster only many Police and Demonstrations

, Dec 2018

Truly the best way to see the main attractions and get a short history on them. Great photo oppurtions and come on regular intervals for getting on and off .

, Dec 2018

The bus is convenient and a great way to get around. They have audio stations at the seats with different languages but it was so garbled we could not understand it. They give out earbuds so you don’t have to take yours and if it or raining they have rain ponchos too.

IT was not a off-on travel and only stop a few seconds in every point. Moderator is not heard and not synch with audio

It was our first time in Paris and through this tour we got to see a lot of the great sights of Paris you would only see on TV. It is best to start early in the morning and give yourself time to explore the various sights. And download the app so you will know what time the next bus will come to the stop you are at. We went in late November so it was a cold wait because we didn't download the app :)

Very good, stops marked so easy to find and came often even though late in season, late November. Had Paola who personally gave commentary on the bus and she was excellent Due to chaotic traffic takes about 2 1/4 hours to do the red loop!

, Nov 2018

Don't spend too much time on this but totally worth doing one day. Paris is a great city to walk and super easy to do so but if you don't know where to go totally worth doing this one of the first days. Make sure to jump on the second route too.
