What people are saying about Grand Palais

This was a brilliant tour - seeing Paris illuminated was very special. The night we went, it rained but Big Bus staff distributed plastic ponchos which meant we stayed pretty much dry so the weather really doesn’t matter. It’s well worth the money (in my view) and we loved it from start to finish …and there is a particular high point to finish (but I’ll not spoil it for you by telling you what it is!)

Pier directly below the Eiffel Tower If you book the tour at 9:00 p.m., the sights are illuminated at sunset Great impression! And then you dock again exactly when the Eiffel Tower is first illuminated. Great experience!

I recommend it to everyone, a very enjoyable sunset cruise. Beautiful view of illuminated Paris. It's worth using :)

Very nice experience, I really liked the city of Paris, I was able to learn a lot.

fantastic way of getting to and seeing all the major attractions of Paris
