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.

Night Bus Tour

The Meeting point was initially difficult to find in the dark with a group of people stood in front of it. But the tour itself was interesting and a good experience.
Did not receive a link...

Did not receive a link for the tickets. Missed the tour. No happy. Please refund me my money as I could not go because I didn’t receive my tickets
Good, could be great

Good intro to the city. Skipped key sights like Sacre Cœur. Several headphone ports were inoperable but we made do. Didn't like that they kept cutting the recorded audio guide tracks short, felt like they were trying to rush the tour.
Great tour and would definitely recommend

Was cold and rainy day in December but worth it. We bundled up and sat at the top open part of the bus. There were multiple buses that night, some that were covered. Took us to all the areas we wanted to see and with all the Christmas lights, was just so beautiful. Ended with the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling lights. Our whole family really enjoyed it.
A must do tour

We chose to enjoy this tour on our first evening. We had just arrived in Paris that afternoon. It was the best introduction to the city. It was great to see all the lights and the highlight was the eiffel tour at night.
Christmas Lights

It was a chilly damp night, but the rain held off long enough for the tour! Loved that the driver timed it so we could see the Eiffel Tower light show.
Expected more

It was nice seeing different sights. You don't get to hop on hop off. Driver should slow down or possibly stop at the sights and give us a chance to take pics.
Nidhi_T, Dec 2022
Totally disorganised, rude employees, not enough buses, looks like over sold online. Was looking forward to it so much but in the end couldn’t wait for it to finish.
A must do
Clarence_B, Dec 2022
The open top and getting to see the beautiful night lights and also being able to understand the guide
Fun , worth it.
Jeanie_L, Dec 2022
Enjoyed the ride even though it was bitter cold. We rode on top until we couldn’t take it anymore. Only then did we discover that there were headphones with a narrator. That added so much to the experience.
Good tour in spite of cold!
Elaine_M, Dec 2022
I do not want to share my story thank you. It was a good tour and thanks for honouring our tickets. North side was cool!
Couldn’t take the tour...
Elizabeth_S, Dec 2022
Couldn’t take the tour because was imposible to get to the meting point. All streets were blocked by the Moroccan celebration for their winning in a soccer game on that day 07/12/22. I sent a message to the driver. No answer no contact.
Great start to stay in Paris

The lights of Paris are amazing! This tour not only showed that, but was also very informative. Loved it!
Great way to get familiar with the city
Maxwell_D, Nov 2022
Perfect way to get acquainted with the city. Did this tour on my first night and felt like I saw a lot of the city and it’s major sights. Easy to find the bus with a quick boarding process, and the audio guide was informative.
Not so good
Sandy_C, Nov 2022
Crowded and hard to see out of the covered bus. The traffic was so bad that it was stop and start. We did get to see alot of sites.
We booked this for the...
Lesley_S, Oct 2022
We booked this for the last night of our trip to Paris. Unfortunately the bus did not turn up. Great disappointment 😒
Great photo ops!
Duane_B, Oct 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The ride was comfortable and the weather great (very lucky!). We drove by (sometimes with a brief pause to allow pictures) many of the best known tourist attractions of Paris. The audio was well timed with the trip, offered interesting and entertaining comments and was easily heard. I would recommend this tour.
Even in the rain, it was perfect.
Karrie_S, Oct 2022
This is a must do day or night. The lights during the evening tour can’t be described. I didn’t even care when the rain came. Had a very limited time in Paris and this provided the opportunity to get a peek at everything. If you have more time it is still a great way to get an idea of places you want to go back to and explore more in depth on your own.
Athena_U, Oct 2022
The driver/bus did not show up, no message of cancellation of the tour was sent to the participants by the vendor! We waited in the rain for more than 30 minutes! Very unprofessional!!!! Terrible!!!!
