Oscar the guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful. Made the trip very interesting.
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 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.
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 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 or a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Louvre for an even more stress-free trip.

We took both the Red and the Blue route and both are worth taking. They show different sides of Paris and one can't choose between the two. The timings are convenient and the buses are comfortable with audio commentary on the various buildings and markets...More
My first time in Paris and this was the wisest thing I've done! Will definitely book it in every country! The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable; itinerary is great and you get to see so many things. Sitting on top is the best!
