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.

Avoid is the weather is bad.

We went on 02 December 2018. The top deck has no provisions if it rains, I noticed other buses had retracting covers to protect against rain. The seats were obviously wet.More

Cities like Rome and Paris are more about walking tours, or travel in the busiest metro networks of the world. In case you wish to avoid either of these, the the HOHO tours are a blessing. Be careful to opt for both the lines spread...More
