There’s no better way to see all of Paris’ top sights than by an open-top Big Bus. Choose a 1-day or 2-day pass, and create your own sightseeing itinerary to discover Paris at your own pace. Sit back and relax on the Classic Route, which takes 2 hours and 25 minutes, or the new Montmartre Route, which takes 1 hour and 15 minutes, while listening to entertaining and informative audio commentary about Paris’ history, architecture, monuments, museums and more.
If you want to explore by foot, hop off at any of the 15 stops around the city. Buses depart regularly from each stop, so you can hop back on wherever, and whenever, you like. See the Itinerary for details on discounts plus a list of the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.
Hop off to pay a visit to the dazzling Eiffel Tower, or pay homage to the city's art scene with a visit to the world-famous Louvre — home to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Have your camera ready to capture sights of the grand Opéra Garnier (also known as Palais Garnier), and look out for must-see sights such as the Musée d’Orsay, the glamorous Champs-Elysées and more. On the new Montmartre Route, check out the picturesque area of Montmartre with stops at the Moulin Rouge, Sacré Coeur, Gare du Nord and Musée Grevin.

This was the only way we would have been able to see the whole city. We bought a 2 day pass and it was perfect.
Sarah was really informative and it was more interesting listening to her than the pre-recorded info.
Truly the best way to see the main attractions and get a short history on them. Great photo oppurtions and come on regular intervals for getting on and off .
Very good, stops marked so easy to find and came often even though late in season, late November. Had Paola who personally gave commentary on the bus and she was excellent Due to chaotic traffic takes about 2 1/4 hours to do the red loop!
Don't spend too much time on this but totally worth doing one day. Paris is a great city to walk and super easy to do so but if you don't know where to go totally worth doing this one of the first days. Make sure to jump on the second route too.
Staff are not very helpful nor welcoming. They are on their own world. The home office was the same, cold.The red line has a person guide but not really talking and let the audio machine works for him.
The bus is convenient and a great way to get around. They have audio stations at the seats with different languages but it was so garbled we could not understand it. They give out earbuds so you don’t have to take yours and if it or raining they have rain ponchos too.
It was our first time in Paris and through this tour we got to see a lot of the great sights of Paris you would only see on TV. It is best to start early in the morning and give yourself time to explore the various sights. And download the app so you will know what time the next bus will come to the stop you are at. We went in late November so it was a cold wait because we didn't download the app :)
IT was not a off-on travel and only stop a few seconds in every point. Moderator is not heard and not synch with audio
At Saturday there was no Bus and no Sightseeing and no informationplease give me back my Moneya big Desaster only many Police and Demonstrations
