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 or a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Louvre for an even more stress-free trip.

Best way to see the city

I love a good sightseeing bus. One thing to note is that it's not 48 hours, as it advertises, but 2 days. So if you get a ticket at 3pm on one day, it will still run out at midnight the next day, not carry...More

Good travel. Out of date info

It was a lovely way to see the architecture of the streets but was a little pricey. The audio commentary was okay but kept cutting off to go onto the next thing so you missed bits. It is difficult to see everything in the time...More

Great way to see Paris - once you get your ticket processed

We had to wait more than an hour in line to convert our online voucher to tickets which was very disappointing given the buses don't start running until close to 10am - felt we wasted half the day. We had 2 day passes which included...More

We did not buy the cruise as reviews mentioned how low the river is and having to look way up. Only the one day bus and it was plenty. There are two lines you can go on as much as you want on that day. Red line: Eiffel... More

The Big Bus Tour doesn't go anywhere near the station. You will want a regular transit bus to go into the city.
