Customer reviews
Mr Graeme Christie

Excellent value and a real timesaver avoiding long waits at both the Eifel Tower and Louvre. Probably saved us at least a couple of hours judging by the number of people waiting to buy tickets at each of the venues. River cruise also well worth doing giving a very good overview of Paris

Joseph G Pelliccia

Great value. Ride around to see everything the first day and then hop off and on at the end of the day and day 2. Just be aware at the end of the day about where you are, what color bus you need, and whether the bus goes where you want. Otherwise you end up walking 45 minutes back to your hotel! Which was ok because we got exercise and got to see more of the city up close and personal.


We did all four routes of the hop-on, hop-off tour, which took in different areas of Paris. Interchange stops were conveniently located. Would recommend to others.

Lauren S. Jensen

This is "THE" tour to do while in Paris! The 4 different lines all make up different districts and "feels" for the city. I personally loved the Green Line (The Grand Tour) which can last 2 hours and also the Yellow Line, which was equally entertaining! This is a MUST SEE IN PARIS!

Evgeny Shulman

Very good, recommend it to everyone
