I purchased a two day pass for the bus during my trip to Paris. My first day was a Sunday, and also the day of the Paris marathon. The marathon route had the buses all messed up. The tour operators office was where the red line and the blue line met. The agents were extending everybody's bus passes for an... More

Enjoyed site seeing on our bus. Found driver to be flexible to make quick stops other than designated. RUBEN at the service center went above and beyond to accommodate and answer our questions. A true ambassador through the door to Paris!! Thank you.

If you want a good overview of Paris, Hop off Hop on this bus and do it on one of your first days there so you will know what you want to spend more time on. You can also get discounts on other sights.

This is one of the best ways to tavell around the major tourist attractions in Paris with small kids. We booked both the Blue and Red Lines - Hop on Hop Off and they were both educative. # Very information with the recorded guided tour messages.

We did this first when we arrived in order to get familiar with the location of the attractions we wanted to see. The buses are easy to locate and there is never a long wait.

This starts at 9.15pm as the sun is setting behind Arc de Triomphe (nice) with tickets at the bus stop €23. Meeting spot is by the Metro exit, north east corner of Arc roundabout. Rug up well and if a cold night, get there early so you can sit upstairs under the cover. One of you queue and the other... More

We had two days in Paris and had bought a 2 day Paris Pass which includes the hop-on/hop off Big Bus. We decided to start with the bus tour and go all the way round so that we had, at least, seen all the main sights from outside. We got on at the Louvre Pyramide (since it was nearest to... More

The official schedule indicates that last bus from Notre Dame picks up at 8.39pm. The website also indicates a bus every 5-15minutes. To be on safe side, before dropping in Notre Dame, we asked the driver about last pick up from the same place; he said better to be there by 8.00pm. We were there at 7.45 pm (to be... More

We bought a two-day pass on Big Bus, and really enjoyed the first day. We saw so many nice things and it was a beautiful day. The driver was great. We enjoyed the river cruise as well. The second day, the driver wasn't as good. For some reason, we sat for 20 minutes not moving at the first stop. Then,... More
