Really enjoyed this and worth the money. Plenty to see on the route and some interesting pictures you could only get on the bus. We hopped off in quite a few places and didn't wait long for the next bus. The recorded commentary was very informative.

It was great to have the opportunity to ride around on a big comfortable bus and getting to see all the amazing places before we set out on our own. This bus also allowed you to jump off and get back on at your leisure so you could explore some stops closer on your own. It had a nice multi... More

We took Big Bus in London and it was wonderful so we decided to try it in Paris. Big mistake. There are far fewer stops and the recording played more music than commentary. None of the lines have live tourist guides like we had in London so you travel for long periods with nothing but music. A tour should be... More

As it says really - I only had time the do the main line where you get to see the Eiffel Tower, louvre, & a drive down champs Elysee.

I purchased a two day pass for the bus during my trip to Paris. My first day was a Sunday, and also the day of the Paris marathon. The marathon route had the buses all messed up. The tour operators office was where the red line and the blue line met. The agents were extending everybody's bus passes for an... More

Enjoyed site seeing on our bus. Found driver to be flexible to make quick stops other than designated. RUBEN at the service center went above and beyond to accommodate and answer our questions. A true ambassador through the door to Paris!! Thank you.

If you want a good overview of Paris, Hop off Hop on this bus and do it on one of your first days there so you will know what you want to spend more time on. You can also get discounts on other sights.

This is one of the best ways to tavell around the major tourist attractions in Paris with small kids. We booked both the Blue and Red Lines - Hop on Hop Off and they were both educative. # Very information with the recorded guided tour messages.
