Overview
See more of Paris via an open-top, double-decker bus and put aside worries about navigating the streets or using public transportation. With two routes and 15 stops, this bus tour makes it easy to hop on and off near main Paris attractions, plus hear audio commentary or listen to a live guide on the city’s history, monuments, and museums. Plan your own itinerary with 1- or 2-day options and move at the pace you set.
Highlights
  • Explore top Paris attractions without the stress of planning transportation 
  • Your driver reminds you where you are so you never miss a stop
  • Choose between a 1- or 2-day pass to best fit your schedule 
  • Upgrade with a Seine River cruise to see sights from a new vantage point
What to Expect
Exchange your voucher at any Big Bus stops in Paris before you board. Hop on either of the two routes, Classical Route or Montmarte Route, and start exploring the city. The bus has audio commentary or a live, English-speaking guide to keep you informed as you ride, and each stop is announced so there’s never any confusion. Depending on the route and season, buses run every five to 45 minutes. Top attractions on the Classical Route include the Eiffel Tower, Louvre-Pyramide, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Champs-Elysées, and Trocadéro. On the Montmarte Route, see the Moulin Rouge, Sacré Coeur, Gare du Nord, and Musée Grevin. Where you go and get off is up to you. Your 1- or 2-day ticket can be upgraded to include a Seine River cruise for an even more stress-free trip.

We had DANIEL as our live guide. He was absolutely amazing and entertaining. His sense of humour was totally necessary for a rather mundane Paris morning!! His knowledge is extremely insightful as if he had some kind of a brochure of all the museum opening hours etc in his head.

All drivers we encountered were very helpful and friendly. The route will take you to the most popular spots and definitely a must buy for first time visitors. We purchased the 2 day pass with the river cruise. Thank you so much

Loved the 2 day bus pass - had added the Arc D' Triumph climb! We totally enjoyed the narration throughout the city as our time was limited and we would be unable to see and learn about everything, otherwise. The Bus ran very prompt and we enjoyed both the Red & Blue Routes!
