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 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 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.

Very simple and convenient way of visiting Paris' famous landmarks - my advice would be to join the bus early in the morning to ensure that there are plenty of empty places to sit and listen to the tour.

Good and Bad

Once on the bus the tour was a great introduction to the key landmarks of Paris. However getting on the bus was a bit of a scrum and rather chaotic. The Blus Bus Tour was not as good as the classic route
