Why take a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Paris?

Hop-on hop-off buses offer visitors to Paris a cheap and easy way to experience the city's spectacular sights at their own pace. Here are some highlights to help get your sightseeing itinerary started!

Place de la Bastille

Place de la Bastille

The square is home to the Bastille Opera – one of Paris' most striking modern buildings – and the July Column, which commemorates the July Revolution.

Musée du Louvre

Musée du Louvre

The Louvre, a fortress-turned-museum, is an essential visit for the architecture alone. When you don't have a bus to catch, come back to see icons like the Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa.

Arc de Triomphe

Arc de Triomphe

Alight at the George V stop to see Napoleon Bonaparte's famous arch and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as well as the notorious cabaret venues Lido and Crazy Horse.

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower

If you've already seen and done Paris' most famous monument, the Eiffel Tower, then consider checking out the nearby Musée du Quai Branly for a ravishing collection of tribal art and lush greenery.

Les Invalides

Les Invalides

There's nowhere better to enjoy the sunshine than the gorgeous Esplanade des Invalides or neighboring Rodin Garden. If it looks like rain, visit Napoleon's tomb at the Army Museum instead!

Planning Your Visit

How much does it cost?

Hop-on hop-off bus tours of Paris are one of the cheapest methods of sightseeing across the city. Prices start at €30 and rarely go above €40 for a single day, with a short Seine cruise even added on!

Which route to take?

Bus tour companies usually operate across various routes (or lines). These tend to serve a pragmatic purpose rather than a thematic one but are generally easy to navigate. Tour listings provide full details. If you don't think you can squeeze all your points of interest into a single day, multiple day tickets are usually available for just a few euros more.

What people are saying about Paris

Eiffel tower good, bus overcrowded and had to stand and boat noisy

We enjoyed the 2nd floor Eiffel Tower visit in the morning but weather overcast so bought evening tickets for visit to summit. Well worth extra as weather brilliant. We then took the Bateaux Parisienne for Seine round trip. This is good way to see all central Paris from the Seine. Only drawback was we sat down below as top deck full of VERY NOISY school children. So not such a good view! The third part of combined ticket was the Hop-on Hop-off Big Bus. Very crowded and probably would not meet UK health and safety standards. We were allowed on to the bus and went to top deck. It was already full with people standing and we had no time to retrace our steps and get off before driver pull away! We remained standing most of journey. It is a good way to see the Central Paris landmarks but not STANDING!

Great way to see Paris, and a good value!

Excellent package. Time saved was the best advantage, vs waiting in line for the Eiffel Tower. The cruise was nice, and the Big Bus hop-on/off was an decent way to see a lot and to travel between areas of interest. The only negative is that the busses aren't very clean, littered with trash, and lacking any orderly process in regards to boarding and getting off. For those who choose not to listen on the bus with earphones, the driver should be announcing arrival at each scheduled stop. Other than that, we were satisfied with everything included in this package!

Awesome experience! Will definitely recommend this to others!

Excellent service from GetYourGuide! We met our guide at 10:00 as arranged, he showed us where to meet him at 14:30 and then helped us to get on the Hop-on Hop-off Bus. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of Paris! The Eiffel Tower experience was unforgettable! There was so many people and long lines, but with our Skip-the-Line tickets, we didn't have to stand in the line at all. The boat trip is very enjoyable and relaxing! Thank you GetYourGuide! I would definitely recommend this for all! We only have good memories of this event!

I would definitely recommend using GetYourGuide

It was so easy. There were two gentlemen there to meet the small group at the arranged meeting point. Very friendly and really straight forward. I didn't book the Louvre Museum, but a point to note, it is free to under 26, you just need to take ID. I was in Paris with my son, and he commented on how nice and friendly these people were, and how easy they made it! Do use them for whatever you are looking to book!! Most importantly, enjoy!

It is very convenient for moving and museums.We bought for three day free pass(metro,bus,RER 1-3zone) and 2 day for museums BUT the third day we had problem with our tickets,we can pass the control.someone from the subway helped us get a new ticket for unlimited routes.If we hadn't this problem, it would be nice.
