  • HUGE thanks to Viator for this trip pass!! My friends and I definitely enjoyed our Paris trip and it was so worth it! heard some bad feedback from friends who toured Paris on their own to save. So we decided to join this hop-on/off tour instead and it was the best decision ever! :-) thank you viator ❤️

  • The bus tour allows you to see everything worth seeing! Got on and off a few times. Was easy enough getting into the Louvre, didn't have to wait, but the wait for the cruise was extremely long and disorganised, so didn't do it.

  • This package was worth every cent plus more.
    Skip the line to the Lourve was amazing and it saved waiting at least 1.5 hours in heat
    It was great as you had no set time to be at the lourve and you could spend as much time in there as possible
    Hop on Hop off was also good like all the other ones that we have been on and experienced..
    The cruise up the seine was also good. We went about 6pm which was a perfect time and you get off the boat near the eiffel tower which becomes a great backdrop whist eating dinner on the banks of the seine

  • Took Big Bus tour to really helpful to find our bearings around Paris on first full day and you learn things you wouldn't otherwise know without the tour. A skip the line for the Louvre a must have but still need to get there early as it gets very busy. Loved the Seine cruise went in the early evening.

  • Best deal if you have just a few days to spend in Paris. Real deal skip the line with no need to spend over an hour just to get your voucher!

  • This was an ideal way to spend a day on our first trip to Paris. It left us wanting to have more time to experience the artistic wonders of the Louvre. There was very little time spent waiting in line for security only. The river cruise portion was just enough to make us want to spend more time on the river, dining and enjoying the sights after dark. The Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off was a bit of a disappointment due to too few stops on each route. Our driver was not knowledgeable about what the physical location of each stop was, ie.closest to our hotel so that we could walk home, and board the bus again the next day for our second day. Two out of three features on this tour were very good.

  • Every detail of the tours worked smoothly. Used the bus for orientation to Paris and as transportation about town. Took cruise in early evening luscious sunlight. Boat was full but not crowded. Splendid views from the river. Went right to the head of the line at the Louvre just as advertised. All around good deal plus lots of fun.

  • We were only Paris for 2 days this week and booked this package to make sure we get to see everything. Overall, it's a great package. Although they said the walking tour from Notre Dame has been discontinued months ago. We wish that would have been deleted as a feature here so we didn't have to expect it. When we went to Louvre, the line wasn't very long so it didn't make a difference whether we had a fast track ticket or not. The Big Bus hop-on hop-off was reliable although traffic in Paris caused some tour delay. The buses can get very packed too considering we were there also on a weekday. The Seine River Cruise was great. If you are in Paris for only a few days, this package will be helpful. I just wish they would also adjust the pricing now that the walking tour is no longer existent.

  • I'm a fan of hop on hop off tours - easy way to get around cities and get your bearings and hear interesting commentary. Skip the line tickets and river cruise were great inclusions.

  • The bus- be careful signs for the bus pickups is REALLY hard to find. Service desk was rude and not helpful. Cruise was the highlight. The Lourve- come around 9ish for less crowds.Though its a skip the line entry still need to queue to buy the audio tour. This shouldve been an option for this deal.
