Taking a hop-on hop-off bus tour around Paris gives you access to all the main attractions, an overview of the city and a means of getting around all in one convenient package. With an open-top, double-decker Big Bus, you get the added bonus of an excellent vantage point for panoramic views.

Your ticket is valid on two routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier and Musée d’Orsay. A complete circle on this route takes about 2 hours 25 minutes. The new Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge and Musée Grevin. A complete circle on this route takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Both routes include informative audio commentary while you see the sights.

Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket, valid starting the first time you use it, and disembark at any of the 15 stops on the combined routes to explore further on your own. Climb aboard the next bus when you're done sightseeing on foot to continue your circuit of the city. See the Itinerary section below for a list of all the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.

Bus Tour with Cruise:
Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a 1-hour Seine River cruise to either your 1- or 2-day bus ticket. Seeing Paris from the water offers a different perspective on this famous city, and is a relaxing way to spend an hour.

The bus tour takes the route described unless traffic prohibits easy movement of the bus in the city. There is standing room most of the time on the buses, except when multiple buses are full and bypass stops on the tour. The cool air on the open top of the bus is excellent during hot days, while the inside of the bus downstairs, where we spent most of yesterday, is a bit like being in hell. There are vents which taunt you with the potential of AC, only to be told that it does not work, no matter how many times you open and close them. The company does provide manual cooling material in the form of brochures. They also do provide earbuds so that you can hear the same things over and over again. Several buses bypassed the very angry mob near stop 4 yesterday which was told repeatedly that bus doesn't work, this bus is off-duty, or this bus is full. There are many ways to see Paris, and I highly recommend any of them as an alternative to Big Bus including Ubr, Open Tours, Metro, Taxis, mopeds, electric scooters, and maybe even a burro. Do NOT book this bus tour. I know they will likely hide this review, but if it will save at least one person from the torture we endured during our trip, it will be worth it.

Fun and informative and we enjoyed being able to hop on and off. The Seine cruise was very cool too!

I had never been to Paris. This was my very 1st time using the Hop-On Hop-off bus. It was easy and safe. I rode the complete route then decided what I wanted to see and I hopped on and off the bus. It was reasonable, clean and staff was friendly.

Tour guide was fantastic. Didn't miss a thing. One of the best hop on hop off ever.I would do this one again in a heartbeat.

Hop-on, hop off option by bus is a great way to see the different venues. Recommend getting the 2 days pass ; take the bus around the first day and decide the second day your sites to visit. This option is really great if you have limited time. In between you might take a taxi or Uber to save time getting to a specific venue you desire to see. Surprised to find that taxi was cheaper than Uber.

Big Bus is convenient, comfortable, and a great value for the money. It even had goog music on the audio!

We had a great time on the Big bus hop on hop off bus. They had live guides on the red route. Sally, Paula and David were amazing and made the trip absolutely great.

We had a brief time in Paris so chose the Hop-on-hop-off bus to catch the highlights. The first bit of the tour we were not offered earbuds but we were only on from Notre Dame to the Arc de triomphe. When we re-boarded at the Arc, we had a live tour guide and she made sure we received earbuds. She did a wonderful job giving bits of information as we neared the next highlight. She was fun and interesting and very easy to understand.

Generally good. However some of the stops need to be replace with better sited stops for top attractions.
