Customer reviews
Jatin Ahuja

We really enjoyed the seine river cruise however on arrival at the cruise boarding gate we were notified by the operator that infant/ child less than 2 years travels free. We booked through your website and were instead charged for 3 adults with no option of child booking. Eventually that lead to unnecessary purchase of 1 ticket which was never used. I contActed the local tour agent Paris Tours n Travels and they confirmed that refund will be made however till date I have not received any refund nor even any confirmation in 2 reminder emails sent to Mr. Mehmet in that company. Looking for your assistance in the matter. Thank you Jatin Ahuja +974 33821285

Found the Hop-On Hop-Off a great way to get around Paris. It saves time trying to find all the famous places. It is much better than going underground on thee Metro and seeing nothing as you travel around. We found it great value for money especially taking the two day ticket. You really see all of Paris from the bus. Loved it.

Jerome Jacobs

Tour was great. Only down side was the buses were quite dirty late in the afternoon. Filled with plastics from headphones. Otherwise the tour itself was great and the timing of the buses were impeccable. Will definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to get around the Paris area

P Meadows

get a brilliant view from the top deck and learn so much by plugging your earphones in, well worth the money, a definite must for visitors and never had to wait for the next bus, very frequent service

Tracy Sonck

We love the hop on/hop off bus tour when we go to major cities! The drivers were nice and helpful when we had questions which is always a nice touch. We will do it again!
