The Hop on Hop off was the attraction for us and the reason why we booked. That and the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. It took me a while to understand from the app that the bus stops are so few and far between that the Hop idea does not really work if you want to combine with a bit of independent exploration.
The next disappointment was the commentary, which I had hoped would contain far more gems about this fascinating city and not just the basics with a lot of (not always enjoyable) music.
And then finally we were left in St Michel at 1830 without any buses coming anywhere near. If that part of the route does not operate after 1800, some warning would have been appreciated. As we had to be somewhere for 2000, we ended up travelling by metro anyway.
Note to self: Next time use the Metro and local buses from the start and save a lot of money

We got a very late start but did make the circle - almost! Couldn’t (and didn’t realize) that we could use it the next day as that day was filled with Versailles. That it was a 24 hour stopping at 6;30 pm missed everyone’s radar (8 adults).

After reading some other reviews we were a little worried but it was all very easy . We arrived at bus stop 1 near the Eiffel Tower at 9.30 and boarded the first bus, no queues. The tour was fantastic and we used the hop on hop off and even if there was a queue there was 2nd bus not far behind. We had a 10 minute wait to collect out Seine river cruise tickets and boarded the next cruise. The ticket price printed on our tickets was €110 so great value for money.

Big Bus Paris is expensive compared to other cities we have done.
The route seems poorly thought out as it crosses it self many times, so a route that is basically an hour takes nearer two hours.
Yes it does take in most of the main sites, but misses so many others. Also to say it is all day is not really true, as our ticket ran out at six thirty pm, when they seemed to shut down for the night tours, leaving us stranded a long way from our hotel, having to make our own way back.
42 euros each for a day is poor value in our mind, but we were foolish enough to pay it, so our mistake.

Hi jingal, we appreciate your honest review. We set a high standard for ourselves, so we are disappointed to hear that your experience with us was not that positive. Thank you for your feedback; we hope that your experience here will not deter you from hop-on/hop-off experiences in other cities. Warm regards, Your Big Bus Paris Team

I booked the ticket for the 1 hour cruise also , I had to wait about 1 hour to get the ticket office to print my ticket before we boarded the boat, at the pier. Not easy with disabled child in baking heat . Utter shambles the lot of it, the bus tour did the job but the audio hardly worked when it did was mainly music playing . We didn’t manage to do the whole bus tour as we ran out of time due to the waiting round for the boat tickets, and getting on the boat .£131 for family of four I will never get back . Don’t bother .

This was a great way to see the entire city in a very short period of time.
The staff was wonderful.
They give out earbuds so you can listen to a recorded narration that is offered in many languages (6 maybe?)

Had never used this service before, and wish we had on other trips. Was a great way to get oriented to the city and see the sites. We used this the first two days of our trip, and in doing so, we were able to plot out some of our excursions for the rest of the trip. We stopped in some areas that we had never really considered visiting.

Only issue was no A/C on the inside of the bus, and when the top was full, it was stuffy to ride on the bottom. We would sometimes wait for a bus or two to pass by to try and ride on top.
