The tour stops and visits...
Mike_F
, Aug. 2022
The tour stops and visits as expected. Only thing is that no one informed us in advance that for Arc de Triomphe tickets we had to redeem them from office at one stop, and that is when I booked tour online and again bus agent while boarding the bus. I had to redo the tour to stop again (stop 4), redeem tickets and go back to Arc de Triomphe site. I advise to inform in advance clients to avoid disappointment, as time is money!

We had a very short time in Paris, this was definitely the best way to see the sites, the commentary was invaluable and being able to get off to look at areas more closely was great, didn’t wait more than 5 minutes for another bus when we were ready to move on. Saw much more of Paris than we would have been able to cover on foot.

Ride around on an electric scooter for a better experience!

Overall I think the bus ride is too long and stops were too far apart. The bus route also misses a few of the major landmarks such as sacre coeur and statue of liberty. The buses were frequent but too hot and no wifi on either bus

No room on the bus
Caroline_K
, Aug. 2022
There were not enough busses and certainly not enough seats on the bus for everyone to enjoy. While a long loop, it doesn’t go everywhere tourists may want to go, so double check the map and be sure to feel comfortable standing in a non-air conditioned bus. We paid for multiple days but only used it one day due to the limited bus runs and past capacity seating.

Great option for the first day - needs more stops
Annette_W
, Jul. 2022
We had planned to do this as an introduction to Paris on the first day. However, that day it was Tour de France and the service ended early. Would have been good to know that and plan differently. We were able to adjust to another day but its just not the same when its not the first time. Some of the stops seem very far apart and there is no way to get out at some of the other interesting areas. We got in at the Eiffeltower and I think it was over 20 min before we could get out at a stop. Would be good to add more stops to truly be able to get on and off and explore.

It was not as nice as we had expected.
Carla_L
, Jul. 2022
The bus we boarded was not air conditioned and no windows were open or able to open. We rode from the Eiffel Tower to the Opera Garnier sweating profusely until we could move up top. Then we sat for 20 minutes outside the Big Bus information center. When we tried to listen to the tour guide the English speaker only played music. Being driven around Paris was nice but at 6pm we were told we had to change buses because the bus we were on was done for the day and the bus we moved to was the last bus. We did not see any where a starting or stopping sign and there was no one, from management, available to explain or inform.

Great way to see the highlights of Paris
Karen_H

What a wonderful way to see and get around Paris. We reserved this because we needed to have something to do before checking into the hotel and something to keep us awake after arriving Paris from the States. It was a perfect time filler and we learned a little about the city as well!

Open top buses with key tourist stops, streets and monuments around Paris. Buses arrive every 10 mins at each of the 10 stops. Stop 1 is at the entrance to Eiffel Tower. Lindt shop cafe is right by stop 3 Opera House. Collect store discount vouchers on board
