Ok so it’s cold a top the bus in October, but if you dress warmly, it’s the best way to see the city sights. Did this on my first day night, it really gave me a good idea of where everything was and where I wanted to explore more in the additional days ahead.

A very good idea I would do it early in your trip. The evening tour is very special and the highlight is the last stop at the Eiffel Tower at the top of the hour, when the Tower does a light show. The bus driver was expert in getting us in a perfect position to view this nighty, hourly light show.

Rainy evening, no policy to reschedule on a better evening. Seat on top were soaked and no towels to dry seats as promised. Poor visibility inside as windows were fogged up. Was not a great Intro to Paris.

Fairly good tour apart from the weather and lack of interaction from the driver. Basically left to your own devices given headphones with no advice as to what channel to listen to offered paper tissue to wipe wet seats ,would have been nice if this had been done before we had got onto the bus well worth taking the tour as Paris is amazing

This was a lot of fun. The only thing I would say is to be a little clearer on the meeting point. It is at their storefront, not the Opera House. Great fun on a summer night in Paris.
