This brand new tour allows you to combine two "must-do" when traveling to Paris: visit the iconic Opera Garnier on a self-guided tour as well as going around the city on a hop-on hop-off bus. At the Opera, immerse yourself in opulent Parisian luxury with a self-guided tour. This iconic opera house is famously known as the setting of Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel,The Phantom of the Opera, and its later musical adaption by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Combining multiple architectural features, this lavish building epitomises French grandeur, and is an important spiritual home of the country's rich dance, musical and theatrical traditions. Aboard a Big Bus open-top, double-decker bus, admire panoramic views of top Paris attractions including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Moulin Rouge and more, all while listening to audio commentary. Follow two easy routes, and hop on and off at any of the 15 stops around town.

  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
  • Fully narrated tour
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Comprehensive tour of the city
