Big Bus Paris Night Tour
From US$28.88

See the best of Paris after dark—and get up-close views of its most famous landmarks—in the space of a single bus tour. This convenient tour kicks off once the sun sets; find a seat on the upper or lower deck and drive past landmarks ranging from the Eiffel Tower and Louvre to Champs-Elysées and Notre Dame Cathedral. An included audio guide in 11 languages helps you learn more.

What to Expect

This evening double-decker bus tour of Paris begins after the sun sets, with departure times varying depending on the season. Head to a central location in Paris to climb aboard the open-air top deck or bottom deck, and embark on a multi-hour tour of the city’s most famous landmarks, all illuminated at night.

Your bus whisks you past Paris icons ranging from the Eiffel Tower and Louvre to Notre Dame Cathedral and beyond as you pass by 10 different stops throughout the city.

As you go, audio commentary—available in 11 languages—tells you more about the city’s history and key attractions. A map and reward voucher booklet are also included in the tour, as is on-board Wi-Fi.

The tour guide makes the ride

We took the night tour of Paris (and also did the hop-on-hop-off). Our guide, whose card I lost, but he was young and his name sounded like Siri, was very amusing and knowledgable. He spoke a little bit about what it's like to live in...More

Freezing but worth it. Paris is different at night.

For what you pay is good. You see Paris at night on a 2 deck bus. Take your headphones and listen. The wifi did not work, but who cares: you are looking at Paris, not your cell. It was about 2 hours long and we...More

Not worth it

If it is cold and you have to stay inside you see nothing. If you stay outside you freeze. The lights are not a big deal compared to other cities in the world. Maybe for Christmas. The only beautiful thing is the Tour Eiffel at...More

I think it ends where it starts, we were kicked off the bus due to the driver not wanting to drive any longer. We did receive a full refund from the bus company, but I would not use again.
