What people are saying about Grand Palais

This was THE BEST way to experience all the main attractions in Paris. The hop on hop off set up made it easy to see everything, spend however much time we wanted to at each stop, we never waited longer than 5 minutes for the next bus and where able to see the places we wanted to go back to for longer stays on the next days of our stay in Paris. Would highly recommend this option to anyone who wants to see all the things in Paris and dont know where to start.
