Could be better...don’t use if in a rush!
48hr both lines and cruise £78 via website. First day disaster - bus stopped about 15-20 mins each stop. Commentary didn’t work. Got on another bus at Eiffel tower, waited 35 mins after complaints driver said he was going but engine failed to start, waited another 15 mins for the next bus.
Cruise much better and worth it.
Second day much quicker to get round (commentary good) but after 4pm heavy traffic and delays due in part to Metro strike.
Both lines covered all sights which was a bonus.

Crowded buses and poor service
Dec 2019 • Couples
Poor experience and not good value for the money. Every time we got off, we waited too long for the next bus. Advertised as a bus every 20 minutes, we waited 40-60 mins on average and on Dec 30, we waited 95 minutes at the Latin Quarter stop and it was jam packed when it did arrive - and felt like a bad coty bus instead of a tour bus. However, the English commentary was very interesting and easy to hear and the sights are magnificent.

Worst experience - dangerous tour
I am very angry because the driver of the bus on which I am currently braking suddenly causing my 75-year-old mother's head and knee to slam, as well as dropping me and other passengers on the ground; now we have to go to the hospital because my mother gets blood from her nose.
I wrote them to have a refund of the tickets just because I couldn’t continue the trip. They replied me “it can happen”.

There is no indication in the bus about how dangerous it could be and no seat belts.

I will probably go to the police to report what happened.
I COMPLETELY NOT SUGGEST TO USE THIS TOUR, THE OTHERS ARE MORE SAFE

Rubbish
Not worth money. Nearly killed trying to flag down bus. 3 buses passed refused to stop. No marked bus stops so no way to see where to wait. Only good thing was the cruise. Do not waste money on this company.

POOR SERVICE
Sep 2019
Waited at Louvre for 50 minutes. In all the while Open Bus and Big Bus were making stops. we eventually walked to the office to lodge a complaint. the response was that traffic was very heavy.

Horrible
Oct 2019 • Couples
I would highly suggest not to take this Hop on/off bus. The drivers are not helpful and are lazy. I would rather take Big Bus. They have more fleet of buses. We stood in line for almost an hour for the bus to arrive at the Opera place. This is ridiculous.

Always the best way to see a city
Sep 2019
Every time we travel we like to take a city tour bus. City sightseeing hop on hop off bus was the perfect way to see the city highlights before we started out on foot. We took the 2 day pass and did the the red line the first day and the blue line on the second day. After doing the bus with commentary we were ready to strike off on our own! We didn't take the boat option but in hind sight that would have been a fun addition.

DO NOT USE!!!
Sep 2019 • Family
The worse bus tour I have ever used!!!

Stops are not sign posted and no one to help at most stops (only saw someone at Eiffel Tower and notre dame).

We waited at gare du nord stop for over an hour, in the sun with a 4 month old baby. Driver drove past and we had to try to run after him, he didn’t stop.

Had to pay for an Uber to the main ticket office, not helpful, told me to email - large poster on the wall with details printed on it so they must have lots of unhappy customers.

We walked to Louvre as no buses at main meeting point, had to chase after the bus again at the lourve as it didn’t stop where the map shows, the same issue after the river cruise.

The driver didn’t wait for us to sit down and my husband fell with our baby.

Bus didn’t follow route on map and missed attractions and views. Worst experience ever and ruined our day in Paris.

I too will be demanding a refund.

I hope you read these reviews before booking, I wish I had!!!

Wrong choice
Aug 2019
Wrong choice. We have used this company in other cities and been quite satisfied but the Paris experience was extremely poor. Buses did not follow the route, the route changed from bus to bus, the stops are not marked and are not the same for one bus to the next. There are a lot fewer buses than either of the other two big companies and last bus for this company is 6 PM while the others continued late into the evening when sightseeing can be at its best. Commentary is poor and did not run at all on some sections. We bought a two day ticket but did not bother for day two. Very poor choice in Paris

Don't waste your time or you'll waste a lot of time
Wife and I decided to try this company without checking out reviews. You'l spend more time waiting for their buses than if you could walk. We didn't have time to make the boat ride as we spent so much time waiting for their busses. At stop 19, we saw one of their buses after 35 minutes! We ran only to have the driver wave his finger at us like, "no no no", so we had to run up numerous steps (I have a heart condition) to stop 19A. Another reviewer stated that for every one of this company's buses, there were 10 of every other company seen. When we wrote to request a refund for the boat part, they gave us some song and dance about the, "important traffic", whatever that means and they make every effort. NO! Why were all the other bus companies able to get through this so-called important traffic and Citysightseeing couldn't? Makes no real sense except they're an inferior company that offers inferior, if any, customer service. Avoid the redbuses! They cheat, lie, and steal your hard earned money.
