Customer Reviews


September 2015

Great tour. The weather was horrible so we were confined to the lower deck but the tour was informative and it covered pretty much all of central Paris and the key sights. Love City-Sightseeing even those this was run by Big Bus and use them with every city I visit

We were directed to the nearest bus stop to our hotel by the concierge. Arriving at the bus stop the attendant there quickly and efficiently issued us with our tickets and the bus arrived in a few minutes. Hopping off and on the bus was easy and we never had to wait more than ten minutes for a bus to arrive. An excellent way to get an overview of the city and see the main places and sights of interest.

Excellent route, great stops, excellent audio tour, plenty of upper deck seats available.
We found this a superb review of the highlights of this city, Paris, which we have always loved but hadn't visited for ten years.
Thank you!

We had a great time, even went twice just to get the overall tour. Was close to our hotel, but found that we sometimes wanted to start earlier in the day, so walked. Great commentary, overall was quite satisfied.
