seeing Paris in one day , recommended for the traveler who want to see Paris in limited time
A GREAT way to get a layout of the city! The tour is recorded in a dozen languages, so if you listen to channel 2, you get an audible english version. BTW, channel 1 is in french. N'est pas? I happened to give the driver a tip at the end of the tour, and he looked like it was totally unexpected. The driving appears to be strenuous to me, but our driver took that bus all around the city in very tight areas. He made it look easy which is the true sign of a professional!
Awesome tour....we did both with a two day voucher! Great value as the price is barely higher than the one day!!!
A must do on every ones first visit to Paris. There were other bus companies that covered more locations. We were based close to the Gare de Lyon railway station and had to walk about a mile plus to our nearest HOHO bus stop. I suggest you check you hotel location and HOHO bus stops before booking
The tour was excellent, we couldn't have visited all of the sites without it!

Great information, went to all of the key areas.
Loved exploring Paris on the Big Bus. Able to get off and see the sites of interest, especially Notre Dam and explore some of the city parks.
I had a great time in Paris and riding the Hop-On Hop-Off bus made traveling around the city so much easier, and convienient, especially during the heatwave that happened while I was there. I really enjoyed the commentary provided by the recording. The drivers were courteous, the other workers very helpful with answering questions. The only complaint- the bus driver I had on the Monntmartre route did not give accurate directions to get to Sacre Couer. Otherwise, I have no complaints.
The HOHO bus is a fantastic way to see a lot, especially if you have limited time. You can take a little or as much time as you like and see the best of what a city has to offer.
We are fans of Big Bus tours. Lots of stops so access to the bus is easy.
So glad we decided to do this tour. The commentary was very good and informative. Doing the tour helped us find our way around Paris and we got to see everything we wanted to.
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.
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
Loved this tour. We purchased a two day pass and it was well worth it. Saw all the sights and enjoyed the hop on - hop off convenience. Great commentary.
It was a good experience to visit the city through Big Bus. Awesome.
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.
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.
great tour, only issue. when i got to gard de nord. there was no one who could tell me in english where the bus stop was. maybe having a kiosk there would be great.
