“Great way to see Paris in a day or 2”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The hop on hop off is the best way to see Paris. There are 4 different routes, but the Green is the best. We bought a 2 day pass, but you can do it all in a day, depending how long you stay at some of the sites.

“Great intro to Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were only in Paris for two days. This tour allowed us to see all the major sights and figure out our way around Paris. There are cheaper big bus tours with hop on/hop off service but from what I read, those tours have recorded narration that you have to listen to through headphones which I find to be annoying. The Paris Bus Service tour was live English narrative. Nicollette was our guide and did a great job at pointing out sights and giving us some history of the area. The tour included a stop to view the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame (probably not enough time to go inside depending on the line but you can at least walk around it)

“City Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

We enjoyed the tour of Paris on an open topped bus. It was very good, supplied with ear phones which was useful to know exactly where you were and the description of the buildings and other places of interest as you went along. You can also hop on and hop off which is such a good idea, should you wish to explore.

“Great introduction to Paris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

We found that a day travelling around Paris getting our bearings and seeing the must do sites was a helpful exercise on our first day of our 8 day visit.
Able to see most sites without much effort and fairly comfortable, but very cold in January. Doing this enabled us to sit down and plan our days and book other visits outside Paris so that we utilised all our available holiday time.
The bus was fair value and useful, made even more so after we did HOHO in ROme which was useless.
Recommend the bus for at least half a day and very helpful if you are anew by to Paris.

“Overview of Paris with limited time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Bus was comfortable, clean, informative, slow-moving enough to see it all and take photos. Get a 2 day pass so that you can retrace to visit more specific places.
