Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This is one of the few bus tours that offers multiple upgrades, including a cruise and Louvre entry.
Taking a hop-on hop-off bus tour around Paris gives you access to all the main attractions, an overview of the city and a means of getting around all in one convenient package. With an open-top, double-decker Big Bus, you get the added bonus of an excellent vantage point for panoramic views.
Your ticket is valid on two routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier and Musée d’Orsay. A complete circle on this route takes about 2 hours 25 minutes. The new Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge and Musée Grevin. A complete circle on this route takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. Routes include informative audio commentary in 11 languages, or an English-speaking live guide while you see the sights.
Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket, valid starting the first time you use it, and disembark at any of the 15 stops on the combined routes to explore further on your own. Climb aboard the next bus when you're done sightseeing on foot to continue your circuit of the city. See the Itinerary section below for a list of all the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.
Bus Tour with Cruise:
Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a 1-hour Seine River cruise to either your 1- or 2-day bus ticket. Seeing Paris from the water offers a different perspective on this famous city, and is a relaxing way to spend an hour.

Big Bus Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
, Nov 2019
Unfortunately, it was a rainy day, so we were all crowded to the interior of the bus. On the positive side, it did visit most of the places of interest in Paris that we were looking for. We especially like the cathedral Sacre Coeur.
The Tour was interesting, like any other one stopped at the right, main tourist attractions. The big disappointment was that I was never given the information as to where I should take the bus and presumed that the bus would stop at the specific tourist attractions buildings. I was in front of the Louvre, saw at least two buses passed by, signaled them to stop, drivers looked at me and didn't even made a signal to point me in the right direction. I finally found the building where the buses leave from but not thanks to this company; instead a got the information from one of your competitors. Not a satisfied customer.
DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. They left us waiting in the hotel lobby for a tour operator that would not show up because they are not paying their guides. Use AIRBNB experiences for a much better time.
This was a great way to see the City when we first arrived, to take note of points of interest we wanted to visit. Rained the entire day so we had to stay inside, which was a bummer, but the guide as well as the tour was great, highly recommend this
I read a lot about all of the city tours. This jump on jump off didn't have any of the problems noted in other reviews. The headsets worked. Always playing music when there wasn't speaking. Buses were easy to find. There was always one there waiting. The drivers are magicians making their way around town. I like to sit up top for a good view. In November I highly suggest you put long underwear under your clothing, or buy a scarf to place over your lap.
We did the two day hop,on hop off. Great way to see Paris. Stops were pretty far apart. Would have been better if they were closer. Flame it included free arc de triomphe and seine river cruise that you could do any time.
