We waited over 60 minutes for a bus to come. When it finally did, the driver said he was off duty and we had to wait another 20 minutes for another bus! I called the home office multiple times and no one cared enough to actually explain the situation. We watched tens of BigBus buses come and go and wished... More

We bought a 1 day pass and then jumped on the bus and rode it around for the first 2 hours. Then got off at each stop as it went around again. The bus came about every 20 /25 minutes where we hopped back on to the next stop. We ended the day at the Eiffel Tower and the bus... More

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.

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.
