Overview
Discover the sights of Paris on a Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour! Aboard an open-top, double-decker bus, admire panoramic views of top Paris attractions including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge and more, all while listening to audio commentary. Follow two easy routes, and hop on and off at any of the 15 stops around town. To see even more of Paris, you have the option to pair your 1-day or 2-day sightseeing pass with a Seine River cruise. If you have selected the option which allows entrance to the Louvre Museum, hop off on Stop 4 or 5 (see itinerary below) to visit one of the world's largest art museum thanks to your skip-the-line ticket. Enjoy the famous Louvre — home to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and many other unmissable artworks.
Highlights
  • Explore top Paris attractions without the stress of planning transportation 
  • Your driver reminds you where you are so you never miss a stop
  • Choose between a 1- or 2-day pass to best fit your schedule 
  • Upgrade with a Seine River cruise or a ticket to Arc de Triomphe
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. 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 entrance to Arc de Triomphe.

I’m actually a fan of these particular tours having had a good experience in New York previously and I can honestly say that this one didn’t disappoint. There was no human guide but the pre recorded stuff was spot on. Definitely worth the money

There is so much to see that we bought the 2 day pass. For only $7 more it is well worth it. This bus goes by all of the attractions and has two different lines to connect to. Well worth the expense. Traffic was pretty heavy later in the day which slowed down the day so get an

Lets face it most hop on/off city bus tours are pretty standard fare so you have to manage your expectations to a degree. Afternoon of Saturday 1st Feb. Booked online that day to save a few euros and trotted off to a stop (not well marked for Big Bus) near the Louvre. Hopped on
