Really enjoyed sitting in Paris’s open air on the top of the bus while listening to all the interesting education and history in English (or whatever language you want). It was so convenient to get off the bus walk around and explore then hop right back on and pick up where we left off. The app was so helpful with locating and knowing when another bus was coming. The night trip was great too! Definitely recommend!!

What a fabulous way to see the highlights of Paris. First time using a hop on/off bus. Gave us a chance to see the city, hear the commentation and get off to explore in areas of interest. So much to see. Will definitely go back and take it again. Thank you for a great experience!

I booked the 2 day ticket and for the difference in price I'm glad I did.
I spent the first day going round both the red and blue routes to get my bearings and stop off briefly in a couple of places to get a feel for what is to be seen.
From this I decided on where I wanted to stop at on the second day to see the key things of interest to me.
The only down side was I arrived in Paris ( and was on the buses) when the rains came but this didn't dampen my experience.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone that hasn't been to Paris before (as I hadn't)!

The Big Bus was a great way to see the major sites in Paris. The only complaint is finding the bus stops. Once you find them it's easy to jump on and off.

This was a comfortable and easy way to see Paris. The stops at big sites are easy to find, although the one by the river was very tricky to find. Our guide spoke English well and did a great job. Rain ponchos provided for our sprinkle!

There was quite a few streets shut down so we walked a long way to get to the first stop. When we arrived we were told that no buses would stop at that location and we were then forced to walk another long distance to another stop. My complaint is that email addresses are provided when purchasing the tickets online and there is a Viator app where customers could be notified of bus stops that have been closed.

We started this tour in Paris and at first there was a guide on the bus who gave us the headphones, but he got off at the next stop and the rest of the trip and no other guide came on. There was a recorded version of this tour that was full of static and the bus was extremely crowded, we were standing on the stairs with no place to plug in our headphones. We also did not receive a validated ticket for the second part of the tour which included a river cruise Overall, I think this tour could use vast improvement in organization, safety and customer service. We have been on other Hop On /Hop Off cruises that were satisfactory, but this one was NOT.

Busses we’re on time .had to wait over an hour at some locations which really cut into our day. Some people were flagging down cabs because they were tired of waiting
