The bus definitely takes you to all the major sights in Paris, but the guiding is limited. Do not expect much in the way of details or history. We had no problem getting back on, but we did deliberately choose the major stops, having seen the issues experienced by others. Wrap up warm if you're not visiting in summer, as... More

Very poor experience. Specially not recommended to use this during winter time. Why there are no bus stops or any kinds of signs for us to wait the bus for? Even waited exactly same place the bus has stopped in the morning, but in evening the bus did not stop at the same place. Not very convenient.

Used this service before 2 years ago, but this time was a joke. Waited for hour at bottom on Champse Elsyee for bus, flagged them and didnt stop. We only managed to get on the bus after it stopped at the traffic lights. The driver wasnt helpful at all, then turned the corner and he kicked us off. Said it... More

The map is old. When we bought the tickets they didn't tell us that the map is old and they are only 2 stops. Waited for an hour to get the bus. The Big Bus passed every 5-10 minutes. Totally regret not getting on the Big Bus.

We purchased tickets on our long layover for the day in Paris. If I were there longer, I would have definitely utilized public transportation. These tickets are not cheap. However, for getting around easily and being taken to the main points of interest in the city center, it was worth it.

Having used city bus in various other countries and always been an excellent way to see the sights we thought this would just as good. Wrong !!! Yes it took us to all the places we wanted to visit and ok the commentary was a little lamer than other countries but told you what you wanted to know but the... More

Hop on hop off does not apply since there are not stops for doing that. Nonregular tours instead of promissed every 20 minutes we had to wait to not get in the bus. 75euros for 4 sounds cheap but taxi takes you everywhere much cheaper.

I took this bus company on my first day in Paris. When buying the ticket they cater very well. I paid 40 euros to use the bus for 24 hours for me and my wife, my 4 year old son does not pay because of his age. We stopped at the Eiffel Tower and then were a 16:30 we left... More

I bought two tickets for this tour as it was cheaper than the other tours in Paris. In hindsight I should have just paid the extra money and taken one of the other tours. This tour provides headsets for the audio guide, but more than half of the headset sockets did not work. The audio guide is supposed to point... More
