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.

Convenient. Timely. Loved Gabriela. Witty. Charming. We learned so much. Two days are a must. River cruise was restful and informative Loved it all
Very nice way to see the sights and great way to do some shopping, just remember to be guarded of your time you don't want to be on the last buss which will not take you back to your original starting point.
We were very lucky to have a live tour guide, Gabrielle, for a portion of our ride. Gabrielle was truly outstanding in all regards. She added so much more fascinating detail to what we had previously heard on the recording. She was vibrant, animated, enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable- answering any and all questions expertly and even giving us valuable tips for our trip. Her English was impeccable.
The lady we asked about a bathroom she said I don’t know and disinterested. We asked John and he told us across the street at the drug store! THANK YOU JOHN for taking an interest in your customers!!!!
