Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Combo: Sightseeing Bus and Seine River Cruise

See Paris from the river on a hop on hop off boat tour

Book a 2- or 3-day hop-on hop-off tour in Paris to see the city’s famous sights at your own pace. With access to both land and water routes, you’ll have double the enjoyment as you travel around the City of Light.

The hop-on hop-off tour by open-top bus includes four interconnecting routes that provide convenient transportation across the city; see the Itinerary section below for the list of stops. Hop off whenever you wish to visit attractions at your leisure, and when you’re on the bus, listen to recorded commentary about Paris via personal earphones. Perhaps visit museums like the Louvre, historical landmarks like Notre-Dame or architectural icons like the Eiffel Tower. Relax at Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg), ride the Montmartre funicular or explore popular quarters like the Marais and St-Germain-des-Prés.

When you’re ready to see the city from a different perspective, head to the river for the hop-on hop-off boat cruise along the Seine. Eight stops give you access to locations like Musée d'Orsay, home to a large collection of Impressionist art, and Hotel de Ville, the city hall.

You can ride the buses and the riverboat as much as you want for the duration of your selected pass.

Best way to see the landmarks for short stay. Too bad, we didn't had a chance to have the Seine River Cruise. The river was close to touring boats due to the high level of the water, it was raining hard in Paris the week before we arrived.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Unfortunately the Seine River Cruise was not running due to the recent floods. The Hop On, Hop Off part was excellent. However, due to having to wait more than an hour and a half to gain access to the Eiffel Tower, although we had Priority access, resulted in having to cancel the afternoon portion of the Hop On Hop off tour.

Excellent all around. The bus was a life saver when we wanted to get off of our feet. We went everywhere and stopped at all of the stops. We toured everything using this bus. It was fun to take pictures, just look at sites, and to get off of our aching feet.

We went to Paris for a three day stay so we decided to get the hop on hop off bus tour. I don't regret getting it at all it helped so much to get from one destination to another. It is a real convenient way to get around the city plus, you get to have a beautiful view from the upper deck it was amazing. We got the 3 day pass with the batobus taxi that crosses you across the Seine river which also helps to get from one point to another. I would highly recommend the bus tour. Plus, the last departure for the buses is not till 9p.m which works great. Unlike other bus tour we have taken their last departure is at 5p.m really inconvenient. I definitely recommend.

We enjoyed service provided by this company. The buses came frequently and there were enough routes to get us to the areas of the city we wanted to see. We used the river cruises for transportation as well as sight seeing. The cruise boats complimented the bus service very well.
