Just what we needed on a very brief trip. The commentary was good and helped us to decide what we would like to see if we can return for a longer stay.

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.

Great tour.


December 2014

Brilliant. We opted for the 2 day unlimited use which was great as we got to see all the sights and got off and back on again whenever we liked. Worth the money. The bus was informative with little headsets. English is Channel 2.

I love the hop on hop off bus. I use them everywhere I go. You can cover the entire city at your leisure and learn alot about the city's history by plugging into the audio jacks. Highly recommended!

We bought the two day tour for us and our (young) teenage children. We saw lots of places on the tour and when we were too tired to walk, just stayed on the bus and listened to the interesting commentary. The commentary music was at times irritating, but hey, you can't have everything! It was a really good way to get to see most of the bits of Paris we wanted to see, and I think the two-day ticket is extremely good value. I would definitely buy this again on our next visit to Paris as there is still lots to see on the tour.

We had a one day pass - - excellent tour - - we enjoyed the excellent commentary in English, excellent selection of visit sites, excellent driving through the massive traffic lines, excellent on-and-off points, busses easily recognized and always some room to hop-on-off. Great value.
