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.

Handy is almost 20 cheaper for 2 adults X 2 days...but the tour itself is great historical/informational.

Some stops are different than other Hop-off on line in Paris. Waited 30 minutes to change to a blue line route. Would not take Big Bus again in Paris.

Used the bus to get a sense of distances from place to place. Audio guide was very good. Bought the two day pass and used it on the second day to get to specific locations.

I purchased a 2 day pass after reading that there as a pre recorded tour in English and how expensive cabs are. However, we ended up only using it twice. The "tour" is prerecorded and you plugged into it with headphones which I was fortunate to have. When I plugged in every channel was in French only so I had no idea what it was saying. I thought maybe it was an issue only with that one bus but experienced the same thing the second bus we got on. Both times I tried asking the bus driver if I was doing something wrong. One handed me a map and the other just waved me to sit down (we were stopped BTW). I wish it would have worked for us because we ended up spending way too much on cabs.

The bus tour takes the route described unless traffic prohibits easy movement of the bus in the city. There is standing room most of the time on the buses, except when multiple buses are full and bypass stops on the tour. The cool air on the open top of the bus is excellent during hot days, while the inside of the bus downstairs, where we spent most of yesterday, is a bit like being in hell. There are vents which taunt you with the potential of AC, only to be told that it does not work, no matter how many times you open and close them. The company does provide manual cooling material in the form of brochures. They also do provide earbuds so that you can hear the same things over and over again. Several buses bypassed the very angry mob near stop 4 yesterday which was told repeatedly that bus doesn't work, this bus is off-duty, or this bus is full. There are many ways to see Paris, and I highly recommend any of them as an alternative to Big Bus including Ubr, Open Tours, Metro, Taxis, mopeds, electric scooters, and maybe even a burro. Do NOT book this bus tour. I know they will likely hide this review, but if it will save at least one person from the torture we endured during our trip, it will be worth it.
