Traveler Tips

Bring a sweater, even if it’s warm outside (78) the wind will make you wish you had a wrap of some kind.
It’s difficult to find the bus stop bc it doesn’t make special note for the tour company - just look for a regular bus stop with a company representative checking you in.

Great tour, just be prepared for what you'll experience
Stephanie_M, Aug 2022
Seeing the sights at night was a great experience, our whole group was glad we'd done this tour. Fair warning on a few aspects though. The ride is pretty bumpy, kind of rough, so that took a bit to get used to. The headset jacks weren't the greatest, so had to jiggle that and actively push it in at times to keep hearing the sound - though it was great audio for a tour like this with humor mixed in and filler music between the talking. Lastly, there are numerous places on the tour where half of the riders had to dodge tree branches. Not sure how to make that aspect better, but was a true danger at times due to the speed of the bus and the amount of the trees! Lastly, it was a bit tedious waiting at the end for the show at the Eiffel Tower to happen before we could end the tour, but overall enjoyed and would recommend.

The tour did not take place. The bus was parked at the curb but no driver or representative of Big Bus showed up. Very rude and unprofessional. I wasted $25 in taxi fare for a no-show tour and I want a reimbursement plus a refund for the tour.

DanDrebb_E, Aug 2022
Tour guide could be more accommodating to queries of guests. Communication about the meeting place isn’t that clear. Experience was okay.
Great night initiation to the City of Lights
Joyce_K, Aug 2022
We did this with our 20, 18 and 16 on the first night of our arrival. Highly recommend- great way to take it in for the first time. Check the weather. It’s only worth it if you’re at the top of the bus. Dress warm for a colder night.
Evening in Paris
Allan_Y, Aug 2022
No pictures,photos or paintings I have seen compare to actually looking up at the Iffell tower it was stunning
Paris at night - amazing!
AnneNeil_P, Aug 2022
I’ve been to Paris 8 times and this is the first time I booked a tour like this. So very happy with this experience. EVERYONE should do this tour, even if you live here. Touring this most amazing city at night, high up on top of a bus, gives you such a different perspective! The final stop to watch the light show on the Eiffel Tower was the most incredible experience!
Fix the bus audio

They need to fix the audio on the tour bus. Our 4 rows had no audio through our headphones. Hard to hear the tour

Very happy with the Big Bus! Night Tour was Fantastic! I will recommend to everyone especially for people with the interest in history to find the best from it.
Complete disaster
Annabelle_P, Aug 2022
Turned up before departure time to join a very long queue and after watching numerous buses fill up top decks and leave was told that there were no buses left and either we return the following night(which we could not as it was our last night in Paris) or sit inside the bus. Asked for a refund and was refused, either get on or don't. As a result sat inside a very hot bus whilst the driver drove like a madman through the streets. Finally stopped at Trocadero and the driver disappeared. Whilst passengers on top took photos we sat inside unable to see much of anything. Feeling quite unwell from the heat we decided to get off the bus and took an uber back to our hotel. Outrageous that the tour booked more passengers than they could fit and no refund offered. There were at least 20 passengers that did not get a seat and many left in anger. The driver was rude and could not care at all that people's plans were ruined. It was my birthday and first time my daughter and I were seeing Paris at night. Disappointed is an understatement, I want my money back as the company failed to provide what I paid for, that is a panoramic tour on the roof top with audio guide.

None, we did not make the trip because we didn’t finish another trip in time to make it to this trip. I’m hoping that my money will be refunded. Thanks

Light It Up
Emily_S, Jul 2022
A nice view of most famous Parisian monuments and structures. Ending with the Eiffel Tower light show delighted everyone.
Amazing City of Lights
Marlene_F, Jul 2022
Finding the bus was simple enough! The bus was on time, audio was very informative and interesting! The view was amazing, but you do have to look out for low branches if you’re sitting on the top deck! Still worth it though!
Magical way to see Paris
Michael_B, Jul 2022
Great way to see the city- seeing Paris at night is magical! The driver knew exactly where to stop and position the bus for optimal viewing for everyone.Must do!
Excellent tour
Moises_S, Jul 2022
Very nice, several buses so everybody had space up. The traject cover the icon places and the illuminated ones.
Great Bus Tour
Tarah_H, Jul 2022
Great Tour! I would recommend taking this tour if visiting Paris. We took the tour on our last night in Paris. The commentary was interesting and informative and the Eiffel tower stop was beautiful! It was a little confusing about where exactly to board the bus initially, but it all worked out. The only downside I would mention was the thoughtless couple sitting in front of us who insisted on smoking throughout the ride which I felt was quite impolite and offensive given that their smoke was blowing right in our direction. It would be nicer if it was a smoke free tour so that everyone can comfortably enjoy sitting at the top deck.

Get there early to wait in line to get best viewing
sheril_f, Jul 2022
We really enjoyed the ride and seeing Paris at night and all the lights and the Eiffel Tower. What we weren’t prepared for were the long lines and not being able to sit up too because there were too many people. With that exception it was very cool.

Jrgen_G, Jul 2022
