Perfect way to travel between tourist sites and shopping. It started drizzling , and everyone on the top just opened their umbrella and continued to enjoy the scenery.

Thank you for a wonderful tour. We covered a lot with the help of your buses. I wish we would have done more than just the one boat ride that we did...but I to answer to my two teenage children:)

Couldn't be better. Organisation is the best! We bought the ticket for all the routes and used it to it's full potential. When again in Paris, We'll buy it again!

MRS M ALDRIDGE

Booked the Hop On Hop Off tour for two days and got the third day free. It was so easy to find out where the bus stops where located on the map and then find them actually on the street as they were very clearly signposted. The commentary was really good and the bus was clean and comfortable. We loved the first day seeing all the famous sights and it was so easy to get on and off where we pleased. The only problem was the buses took quite a long time to go round the route as there was no conductor so people had to pay the driver who then obviously couldnt re-start the tour until everyone had paid and got on so we used the metro for our final (third day) in order to get to places quicker. Saying that though I most definately would use this service again to get to see all the famous landmarks and it was certainly good value for money.
