Explore Paris at your own pace on a 1- or 2-day hop-on hop-off bus tour—a cost-effective and convenient way to orient yourself and see the sights. Your ticket grants you access to two routes, and lets you visit top Paris attractions at your leisure. A covered lower deck and open-top upper deck cater for all weather while onboard audio commentary brings the history of Paris to life. Plus, as an added bonus, get a morning admission ticket to the Louvre that allows you to skip the long entrance lines.
  • Create a personalized Paris sightseeing itinerary on a hop-on hop-off bus tour
  • Gain skip-the-line access to the Louvre with an included admission ticket 
  • Get off as often as you’d like to explore Paris’ top attractions on your own
  • A covered lower deck and open upper deck cater to all weather conditions
What to Expect
With your pass in hand, board your tour bus at the stop most convenient to you. Both of the routes allow you to change your sightseeing itinerary as you see fit. The Classic Route covers Paris icons such as the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysees, and the Louvre, while the Montmartre Route services the world-famous Moulin Rouge windmill and Musée Grevin. Disembark the bus whenever an attraction captures your attention, and explore on your own. Enjoy unlimited use of your ticket throughout the validity period. Plus, you also receive a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Louvre to use in the morning.

Do not go to the Louvre without a skip the line ticket! You will wait for a very very long time. A guide is also a good idea as the Louvre is insanely big and there a so many people you will easily get lost!

Dear ksenia_spain, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. we are sorry to read about what happened. we cannot reschedule all our tours. For exemple Louvre museum tickets are valid on a specific day and on a specific hour. If you don't use it on this day and on this hour you must buy another one. This is why we cannot reschedule this service. Regarding the Hop on Hop off please note that your ticket is valid during several months after the date of purchase. We are sorry again for the inconvenience caused. Be assured that we will send your review to the department concerned. Best regards, Thalia

I’m really glad we did this adventure on the bus because it gave us a broad overview of everything that Paris has to offer. We did this on our first full day here which gave us an idea of a true itinerary while in the city Staff was professional and courteous.
