“Finding Bus Stop”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We chose this as it was the first bus to come along, the driver was lovely and helpful. We got off at Notre Dame and had lunch then tried to get on the bus to carry on. We stood where we got off and along came the bus and did not stop. We then had no idea where to go, We stood where we had seen him stop on the way round to us and he did open his doors and shout that this was not the stop and he was not a taxi. I tried to find out in French where we should have gone but am still waiting...... Would not use again and I live here and have many many visitors.

“Hop on hop off”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

A very bad experience. Couldn't find pick up locations. Had to flag the bus down in the street. The one location we did find, we waited 45 minutes for a bus while we watched 7 Big Red Buses go by. Definately would not recommend.

“Cheapest”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I think this is the cheapest one - 17E for a continous tour and 21E for a hop-on-hop-off. Good enough.

“Paris Illuminations Tour”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We took the almost two hour night tour and I must say - I usually don't care for bus tours - that this was the only way to see most of Paris lit up at night. We were picked up at 9pm ... saw all the main landmarks and then some. It is almost impossible to get good photography from a bus but I did manage to get some great shots along the way - if you have a good camera on a night setting - please turn off your flash as it does not work at those distances! The bus stopped at the Eiffel Tower for about ten minutes so we could see the hourly light show and there was time to get lots of pics from the bus.

“We lost all afternoon”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Got on the bus at 1pm. Hop off to get a cup of coffee and walk around on one of the stops. Took us 40 minutes to get on again. Made one more stop and driver got everyone off. We wait 20 more minutes for the next one. By that time, 4:30, there's not enough time for the whole day ticket we bought. Need to add that Paris traffic didn't help To sum up, low frequency and short schedule make competitors a better option.
