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

Great way to get to see Paris and get to main attractions.

Easy to use. We had an issue with bus reading digital tickets but bus took us to main stop where it was quickly resolved. Great way to get your bearings and see parts of the city between the main attractions. Audio tour was interesting, and informative. Traffic at Arc de Triumph was something to see from the top deck.

Phil is the man!! Was our favorite guide by far!

Bus is convenient and we used it all day. We bused in for a one day adventure in Paris and then used the Hop on Hop off to get around. From de Orsay, to the Tower, to the Lourve, to the catacombs, etc. it got is where we wanted and needed to be. The first ride was our longest and we had Phil as our guide and he was outstanding, we hated to get off when we hit our stop. Well worth the money spent on this event!!

Paris with big bus is amazing !! Love it

Just we showed them tickets on our iPhone ... everything was near easy with bigbus .. can't imagine our trip without it .... it was wonderful

We felt that the Paris Hop-on Hop-Off Bus tour was very worth-while.

The bus tour allowed us to see the sights that we really wanted to see at the times when we could fit them into our schedule, then get off our feet while going on to the next stop. We really appreciated the information given before and after each stop.

Perfect way to sightseeing (even in a traffic jam)

The best hop-on hop-off I've used. Even a traffic jam's time could be not so wasted. Kids were fascinated.
