  • Really good experience

  • This was an excellent way to familiarise yourself with the city and get to know your way around as well as see so many of Paris's wonderful attractions. The buses are clean and comfortable and run very regularly so not too much time is wasted standing around waiting. Skip the line entry is always the way to go for any of these type of places where you know the queues are going to be so huge and especially in the heat of summer. Definitely book in advance to make sure you are not disappointed.

  • Skip the line is the way to go in Paris! Pretty much just walk right in. There is so much to see here, that I do wish it was guided, but you also would have missed a lot that way. The museum was huge and easy to get lost in, some areas were closed for renovation and wasn't noted on the map prior to. The Mona Lisa has a huge crowd around it and is already blocked off for how close you can get to it. The bus was really good, came around often and the guided tour along with it was very informative as well. Gave you great views of the tourist spots in Paris, good for photo ops! Definitely a good buy!

  • Skip the line should be called fast pass because you still have a very long, but faster line to go through. As for the bus, this was our first hop-on hop -off bus of our month long trip. We began immediate fans and would recommend them to all who travel without a car. And this company was one of the best we rode on.

  • Great way to get around the city!

  • We went there on a Sunday and with the skip the line ticket we went in right away.There is a security check at the gate .We went to see the Mona Lisa painting first because it gets very busy in the afternoon.Best way to see Paris is the hop on hop off bus.

  • This was an amazing choice. My friend and I traveled to Paris from London to spend the day. The Hop-on, Hop-Off Big Bus allowed us to see all main attractions in record time. Highly recommended!

  • The bus and skip the line were well worth the booking, BUT the inefficiency of the Paris office, where you MUST pick up your voucher almost ruined the day. There is no excuse for the length of time required standing in the sun to receive the Louvre voucher.

  • The name is misleading. You still have to wait in line with the others to get in the Louvre with this ticket. But, I guess you at least have a ticket and don't have to wait to buy one there / HOHO bus was good though.

  • Big Bus is excellent. The staff is friendly and definitely customer oriented. The option to group activities is a great idea. We had Hop On-Hop Off and the Louvre. Worked perfectly.
