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.

What a fantastic way to see a beautiful city. These buses are a God-send. The commentary that goes with these tour buses is excellent and helps to drown out some of the traffic noise.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Easy access at different points, the only way to get around to different attractions. They way people drive in paris too scared to get around any other way

We joined this tour with friends who had also booked us on another 3 hour afternoon tour. I would recommend not booking another tour in the same day. This way you can enjoy all the bus has to offer, which we didn't get the chance to do. We didn't have time to do the hour Seine tour that was included, which was a disappointment. Take our advice: don't over plan.

The entire tour takes 2.5 hours if you stay on the bus. It's a great way to get an overview of the city. The included audio narration is available in several languages is very well done with music accompanying the narration.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

We had no problems during our two day pass. This is a great was to see the city.

I did the 2-day bus tour with the river cruise on a recent visit. I must say that the bus tour was one of the best I have ever experienced anywhere! The tour itself was well organized and the pre-recorded audio was informative and I learned a lot more about Paris than I ever did. The buses operated pretty often and the staff was helpful and polite. Also, the Seine River cruise was very enjoyable and relaxing.
