Overview

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 or listen to a live guide 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 or a live, English-speaking guide 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.

Two days during the riots...

The bus trips were very interesting and we used both days to the fullest. The recorded commentary was entertaining and amusing (We even like the musak). The riots interrupted one day but the company kindly gave us another day. My only complaint on the bus...More

A bit to pricey

We enjoyed it, but it is overpriced.. The guide is funny and easy to listen to, but if you want more “precise” history and art information, you have to use the headsets and listen to the pre-recorded audio guide.

Beware of lack of hopping-on locations

A very average experience blighted by the lack of hopping-on location on the 'Blue' circuit. This mention that we had to take the excellent Metro at a fraction of the cost.

It would be best to contact the company directly to find out if they are running or if they have a modified route/schedule/

We stayed at a Airbnb and it worked out very well. There are hotels but I don't know about them.
