Customer reviews
David Dion

It has 4 different routes and pretty much covers all the Paris attraction areas. Easy to get on and off giving access to explore your own. Most of all, it is nice to sit down and rest your legs from strenuous walkings in between sites.

Kenneth J Diamond

Definitely an optimal way to view the sights and navigate Paris. We will definitely be utilizing this service in the future!

MR SHAUN COOPER

Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to see the sights of Paris. Takes the stress out of sightseeing, minimal waiting times with audio commentary & so easy to use. Should have done this last time we visited Paris instead of hopping on and off the metro!

Mr William Lazaris

The L'Open hop on hop off bus is a great way to get around Paris. We had the Batobus included which was a great cruise that took about one and half hours to do the whole circuit. Great activity when it's raining as it is a covered boat. The drivers were friendly and even waited at the bus stop if they could see you running for the bus. The tour is available in different languages.

Mrs Kay F Rowlinson

We always travel this way in Paris. We prefer this company as the routes are wider and we can get to our favourite destination Sacre Coeur and Montmartre.
