I purchased two tickets for my parents, so that they could go and see the sights that we missed while my friend and I went on a walking tour. In particular, my mother wanted to see Notre Dame since she missed it on the day that we went. My parents boarded the bus at the City Sightseeing office at 9:50am... More

They say you can get on & off wherever you like. They dropped us off at Musee D'Orsay but never told us that they won't pick you up. After watching 3 buses fly past us we had to pay 10 euros to get back to our hotel in a taxi. When we told them they weren't interested. Not happy!

Everything I've read on Tripadvisor happened to us. Dreadful waste of money. After waiting 45 mins for an 'every 20' minute service, and witnessing at least 8 Big Bus vehicles pass us, I stepped into their main office (near the Louvre) to be informed the traffic is heavy !?!? Wasn't sure wether to laugh or cry. DO NOT USE !!!!!

€25 gets you 24hrs access to a hop on hop off bus which goes to the main sights. Great for finding your bearings and see the sights. The full circuit try last 2 hours. We got tickets at 2pm and used the bus over 2 days. You get to see sights you may not necessarily go to - like the... More

Bought a 70€ ticket for 2 days. Rode from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame and got off to walk around the Latin Quarter. Came back to pickup point - saw 2 Big Red Busses, saw 2 Green busses - NO SIGHTSEEING BUS. After about an hour, ended up using the city bus to get back to Eiffel Tower. They... More

The Paris version of City Sightseeing tour takes in most of the big sights including the Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triumph and Notre Dame. We stayed on for the full circuit and it was good but the information provided on the audio guide was limited. What I would say is that we were leaving that day and we all had... More

70 Euro for a two day ticket to see Paris. Rude drivers. Different bus stops to those listed on the map. Hardly any buses. Waste of money in my opinion. Funny that loads of 'Big Bus Tours' and 'Foxitity' buses passed us as we waited in the wrong spot for a bus that never arrived!!!!

The rate was 25 euros per day. And was charged 20 euros for 2 hours (one round trip) per adult, and 10 euros per child.

Very disappointed in city sightseeing. Spent more time waiting on buses rather than sitting on them. Very irregular. Stops poorly marked. Only does one basic tour of Paris which doesnt include Sacre Coure or Montmatre. Would not recommend this.

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighbourhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
