Full description
Experience the romance, the elegance, and the beauty of Paris on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour.

You can explore the cobbled streets of the city’s left bank, take in the Napoleonic splendor of the Ecole Militaire, and visit the structure that has become the symbol of Paris itself - the Eiffel Tower - with either a Classic, Premium or Deluxe Ticket.

Take time to see Paris at your own pace, and see the best of this historical, romantic, fashionable, fun and shopper-friendly metropolis.

You can hop-off the bus at the Champ de Mars, a vast green area featuring wide walking paths that cross immaculate lawns. The borders of this park are lined with trees and flowering shrubs, and colorful flower beds can be found throughout the park. The most prominent feature here is the Eiffel Tower, one of the most iconic monuments of Paris.

The Tower is an iron lattice-work structure built in 1889. At 324 meters, it’s the tallest building in Paris and one of the most visited monuments in the world. Head up to the viewing platform for breathtaking views of the city, which are particularly enjoyable at sunset.

You can also hop-off at the Musee du Louvre, originally a royal fortress, where you can spend several hours exploring this world-renowned museum that houses 35,000 works of art.

The Montmartre Route will take you to the Montmartre region with stops at the Moulin Rouge, Sacre Coeur, Gare du Nord and Musee Grevin.

The Classic Ticket includes a 1-day ticket for the hop-on hop-off bus, with access to both routes. Choose the Premium Ticket and enjoy Paris from a double-decker bus for 2 days. With the Deluxe Ticket you can add a romantic cruise on the Seine River to your 2 day experience.

The use we hopped on was full so we had the last seats on The rear in the upper deck; the seats were very uncomfortable. They gave out earphones but there was no where to plug them so we couldn’t hear the commentary. The traffic was awful so the ride was very long & uncomfortable.

I bought a 48h ticket. In total, we came 3 times - during the day and evening. I decided to go on the trip because of the closed metro (strike) and I do not regret the decision. I was only surprised that on the blue line you can not take the bus at the moulin rouge and the next stop. Why?

It is fine but the information on the part of the guides is very deficient to which you say Spanish is over everything is as if we were weirdos I am disappointed here in Spain when a foreigner asks us for information we give it as in France one .. .......
