  • Excellent tour. Very informative, you will get information and lots of background stories about the most popular sights and even some that you did not know about before. The two day pass was a great option you need two days to maximize your tour. Highly recommended.

  • a super experience! The staff was very helpful! The buses were clean, the came often and the audio was such a nice added bonus! A clever way to see and hear the history of Paris! With the bonus route now being included in our pricing, we got to see ALL of Paris! The hop on/hop off is THE BEST way to see all the main attractions beautiful Paris has to offer. We never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus and the APP was rad! The skip the line at the Louvre was SOOO worth it! Cut our wait time down by more than 45 minutes! I will most definitely use this service again! in fact, I did in Amsterdam and London!

  • The bus as great! The museum looked more like a shopping mall! I could have saved my money.

  • Most everything was easier to walk to then to ride the hop on and off bus and the Louvre museum's skip the line line was just as long as the line that was not skip the line.

  • We loved this tour. Our guide was fantastic. She was very animated and enthusiastic explaining the works of art as well as the Louvre itself. This tour is a definite must do when you visit Paris.

  • The line at the main office for the hop on hop off bus just to get your prepaid tickets was very long. The employees there were not very friendly or helpful regarding the tour. The bus tour itself was ok, typical bus tour. They did not offer us headphones though so we were unable to listen to the audio portion. There was no line to the Louvre when we went so we didn't get to see how speedy the skip the line would have been. The Louvre in itself was great.

  • Big Bus tour was good and have headphones that don't hurt your ears. Louvre was amazing! So much to see. Could spend so much time there, ended up spending 2 hours or so that way we could still see all the other sites on the bus tour and get off to take photos as well.

  • Excellent, money well spent. It was very easy to have all the details of this tour taken care of, prior to my visit to Paris.

  • Tickets to Louvre were great so didn't have to stand in line. The hop on hop off was pretty mediocre as stopped too long 20 -30 minutes at each stop so took too long to do the whole circuit. Better to just take uber between sites.

  • Really good experience
