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. Both routes include informative audio commentary 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.

We were very lucky to have a live tour guide, Gabrielle, for a portion of our ride. Gabrielle was truly outstanding in all regards. She added so much more fascinating detail to what we had previously heard on the recording. She was vibrant, animated, enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable- answering any and all questions expertly and even giving us valuable tips for our trip. Her English was impeccable.

Our first time to Paris, and chose to do this first to understand the basics of the city from a higher point of view. We rode the entire loop on the upper deck and recommend it for the sake of being able to see many things. We stayed on the red tour since it was closer to our stop and places on our hit list and we did do a couple of on/off points. Very convenient get around option, and I would not recommend booking other tours on the day you book this so that you can take advantage of connecting to several points of interest for more exploration at a later period.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

Terrific experience. We really enjoyed the way we could see Paris at our option - whether from the bus or on foot at various points.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

We took the Big Bus several days to see Paris the first couple of days of our trip. It was a great choice to see a lot of Paris's historic landmarks and well as get off and explore an area of interest. The bus's guide provided great information about the city and areas within the city. Good way to get acquainted with the areas.

Have to do this at least one day to see all that you need to see in Paris. Convenient stop locations.

This Big Bus is much better than City Sight Seeing . Big Bus last bus is around 7 PM, while City Sight Seeing stops at 4 PM in every countries I visited. Big bus also have more (frequent) buses. The most important thing is they have stops I can find, while City Sight Seeing has no stops, and in the afternoon, there is nobody standing there, and you have to guess where you should wait. I found Big Bus is much convenient.
