Customer reviews for Big Bus Paris Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour

Average 5 out of 5 (3 customer reviews)

  • Great value, we bought the 2 day ticket and the bus to get around the city. Remember your 48 hours starts the day you first get on, not at the time you get on, so get on early to make the most of your time.




  • Good fun. Was pouring with rain, and all inside seats were taken but they provided rain poncho to wear. Only problem was the traffic in Paris was very bad which slowed the progress of the bus.




  • Good price. It was easy to collect the tickets from the river by producing the voucher
