Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is one of the few bus tours that offers multiple upgrades, including a cruise and entry to the Arc de Triomphe.
Taking a hop-on hop-off bus tour around Paris gives you access to all the main attractions, an overview of the city and a means of getting around all in one convenient package. With an open-top, double-decker Big Bus, you get the added bonus of an excellent vantage point for panoramic views.

Your ticket is valid on two routes through Paris. There's the Classic Route, including stops at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Champs-Elysées, Palais Garnier, and Musée d’Orsay. The Montmartre Route takes in the sights of the bohemian hilltop neighborhood, including Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge, and Musée Grevin. Routes include informative audio commentary in 11 languages, or an English-speaking live guide while you see the sights.

Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket, valid starting the first time you use it, and disembark at any of the stops on the combined routes to explore further on your own. Climb aboard the next bus when you're done sightseeing on foot to continue your circuit of the city. See the Itinerary section below for a list of all the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour stops.

Choose to upgrade your sightseeing experience by adding a Seine River cruise or entry to the Arc de Triomphe to either your 1- or 2-day bus ticket.

The best way to go if you’re in Paris for one day!! Would highly recommend it! No way to see all the sights in one day without this bus!
Awesome day in Paris

The tour was awesome! I was able to travel at my own pace, get down to take pictures, then get on again. The audio guide was very informative! It was fun to listen to while travelling. I was able to cross off many items in my itinerary in 1 day.
Sight Seeing

This was good way for us to see the highlights of Paris. It helped us get to know the sight and where we wanted to go back to.
Big Bus a definite when in Paris
, Feb 2020
Used bus often but only once did we have the narrator. Would be useful to have one on every bus. Otherwise it was great. Covered a lot of area. Buses came frequently to all stops. Plenty of ear buds and naps always available.
Amazing tour on Big Bus
, Jan 2020
The Big Bus Tours are amazing - the audio descriptions are very good (and there'e even music) BUT if you get a live commentry it is fantastic - as they add their thoughts and feelings and can be really funny.
Excellent overview of Paris
, Dec 2019
Did two day pass and it works very well. Only suggestion is to have a printout of the stops so we could have picked up the bus at a much closer location.
