BUS to the MAX
Apr 2020
This was a part of the Paris Pass and we used it to the MAX. It was easy to find the language we needed to enjoy the tour of the city via bus. The drivers also stopped at the Eifel Tower to ensure everyone was able to get a photo or two.

We actually utilized this service in July 2019

We did the red and blue circuits in the same day and especially enjoyed the red circuit for an almost complete visit of the most sites of Paris, with detailed explanations and stops in front of the most emblematic monuments. A delight tour.

Terrible and expensive
Aug 2020
This was a spontaneous decision and I will never do it again. 2 hours waiting before another bus shows up? Not really hop-on-hop-off fun. No corona-measures (people were sitting really close to each other), non-qualified and non-friendly staff etc. On top of it all, it was way overpriced. Pick another company or take the metro. This was a nightmare.

Avoid driving in Paris
Sep 2019
I bought the Big Bus ParisTour Deluxe ticket, it is a few dollars more then the Classic ticket at 35.10 euros but it is 2 days of Hop-On, Hop-Off service. There are so many great attractions to see that 2 days were needed. Traffic in Paris can be strangling at times and in certain areas so time is wasted. Additionally, attractions like the Louve can be stretched out into a 2 day experience by itself.

What are the stops on the Big Bus Classic and Deluxe ticket? The Red route starts at 9:30 at stop #1. which is the Eiffel tower. There is a Big Bus information center there as well. The Champ de Mars, Opera Granier, Louve, Notre-Dame, Musee d'Orsay, Champs-Elysee, Grande Palais and Trocaderio complete the Red route. If you want to Hop-off to see the attractions of the Blue route (Montmartre) get off the Red route at stop #4. The Blue route features the Louve, Gase du Nord, Pigalle, Sacre-Coeur and Musee Gievin. There are wait times which can not be avoided, so consider that in your planning.

The open top seating, double-decker buses have live English speaking guides and pre-recorded commentary in 11 different languages via complimentary headphones. Additionally with your ticket, you can download on their app store commentary on all the landmarks. If you have an android download Google Play. The apps are free.

If you want to enter some of the attractions it will cost you extra. The Opera-Garnier tour is 14 Euros and going to the top of the Arc de Triomphe is 12 Euros, as examples. You may wish to purchase the Paris museum pass for 53.90 Euros which allows a free pass to 50 museums.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed the routes. Our service is running with the maximum number of buses to try keep good frequency and avoid wasting time for our customers. It is true that Paris city center can be crowed at some point as any major world city. Kind regards, Customer Service team

Lovely song about Paris
I was in Paris for a few days en route to Lourdes. I took the tour bus straight from the train station and did the tour. It was amazing. It was raining a bit but still a really lovely experience. The sites, sculptures and buildings were exquisite. There was a lovely haunting song about Paris... I can’t get the tune out of my head. I would love to know the name so I can purchase it. Thank you for a lovely time and helping me cross it off my bucket list of places to go..

Great deal!
Mar 2020
We purchased the Deluxe Tour which gave us 2 days for bus touring + a 1 hour Seine River Cruise. This is a great way to find your way around Paris overall! We purchased our tickets on the bus but they can also be purchased online. We really enjoyed both the live tours and the recorded tours. Learned some different things from both.Spent most of our time on the Red Tour hopping off at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame. We also took the Blue tour but since it was rainy at that time we stayed on the bus. Traffic and the pedestrians were a bit wild at times so we were very glad that we did not drive in Paris. This company provides great and reliable service. Would definitely recommend!
