This could be so much better. The audio guide is terrible. Not more than a couple of sentences from the guide for each of the 10 stops. Followed by long silences or a French song on repeat (literally 15min of one song on a loop). There is so much more to Paris that could be included in this audio guide. Other than a useful way to get between some attractions this was disappointing and not worth doing.

always a great way to see Paris, from up high the Arc du Triumphe and Notre Dame are spectacular, and I like the brief commentary along the way. You can hop off and back on, as you see things you want to explore, highly recommend it to see highlights of Paris for 2 or so hours.

To have a nice general idea of the city is worth it, if you have three days, at least. If you want to hop back remember the bus stops, as they do not have a clear identification and with the rest of the buses, you may be confused to find the stops for the hop-in!

This is an amazing way to get to see Paris.
Jump on and off at any of the main attractions.

Couple of tips.

Buy direct from online, Its cheaper and you have proof if you lose your ticket.
Your ticket is your proof for entry.

We actually bought a 2 day ticket and thought we got a new one on the second day and binned the ticket, well You don't, you use the same tickets 2 days on the run.
The man on the bus let us get back on, on day 2 and we got off at the bus station shop and you can show your proof and get another ticket.

You actually get 24/48 hours, not 1/2 days
Your ticket is activated when you first board the bus or get your ticket exchanged by the bus conductors.
for eg, you buy your ticket at 9 am Monday but don't get on the bus or exchange until 3pm
Your ticket is valid until 3pm on the Wednesday
I thought this was a much fairer was of doing it also so you don't lose any hours if you buy laster in the day.

As it was end November when we visited the but didn't run that late, im unsure if its the same throughout the year.

The music on the bus if a bit cheesy, but you will honestly be singing it on the way round.
Champs-Élysées is probably the best song and im still singing it now :-)

Big Bus was fabulous! A perfect way to see Paris on my first day. I rode the bus an entire revolution around Paris to see everything. The route is perfect it goes past all of the major attractions. The recorded audio is very interesting. Allow plenty of time for yourself as traffic concerns can slow the bus down. I rode on the top and got some fabulous amazing pictures of Paris. If you are in a hurry to get somewhere this is not the way to go. This is a leisurely tour to introduce you to Paris. I highly recommend this tour it was wonderful. I actually did it for 2 days in a row.

We purchased a 2 day pass and our first use we simply rode a full loop of the city listening to the presentation given via audio on the bus. From there we decided what we wanted to see more in depth and used the on/off option to go see some of the places that held more interest for us. This is a great way to see Paris and would be especially goos if you have a limited amount of time. The bonus is the pass is actually a 48 hour duration so if you dont begin using it until noon on say Monday- you can use it up until noon on Wednesday

Very smooth. Drivers were helpful. English music playlist can be updated to More child friendly songs or music. We visited during thanksgiving and Christmas season, perhaps a more Christmas theme song selection. The songs played most of the time when the tour guide Audio is on pause was “I’m up all night to get lucky” by draft punk ft Parrella. Not a bad song just played out after 1.5 to 2 hours on the bus.

We would not recommend this experience at all. We took the Premium ticket for the hop on, hop off bus in November. 2 days.

The ride is very very shaky. And it takes way longer than promised to get from one stop to the next one.

If you’re visiting Paris in the Winter, the ride is incredibly cold. Almost unbearable! There is no roof, and the lower part of the bus is very cold.
