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.

What to Expect

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 for an even more stress-free trip.

Read the small print

Make sure you read the small print. The blue line never includes a tour guide and not every red line bus does so make sure you know which sign to read and what to expect.

Elisa was the best

We had three live guides. I recommend them all, but Elisa was the best. Great sense of humor and local knowledge.

Good value, good locations

Big Bus is very nice to get a quick tour (with commentary) of the city. Earbuds are distributed so you can tune into the audio channel of the pre-recorded tour in several different languages and if your bus happens to have a live tour guide...More

Fun and helpful!

We rode the bus for three separate stretches. One of them had no guide and the difference was very noticeable! Both Aubree and Antoine were exceptional, able to provide interesting and relevant commentary in an interesting fashion. They paid attention to the smaller locations as...More

I’d sat the same - 48hrs. As long as you get on within that time frame then you get off where you want (even if it’s expired). You just need to get back to your accommodations or wherever on your own steam). We bought a... More
