  • Create a personalized itinerary of the sights you want to see
  • Listen to informative audio commentary aboard the open-top bus
  • Choose a 1-day or 2-day sightseeing bus pass
  • Upgrade to enjoy a Seine River cruise or entrance to Arc de Triomphe

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is one of the few bus tours that offers multiple upgrades, including a cruise and entry to the Arc de Triomphe.
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 multiple routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier, and Musée d’Orsay. The Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge, and Musée Grevin. 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 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.

Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a Seine River cruise or entry to the Arc de Triomphe to either your 1- or 2-day bus ticket.

Great way to get overview of city, especially if limited on time. Buses were on schedule and staff was very helpful. We sat on upper deck, not sure what is viewable from bottom level.
