Overview

See more of Paris via an open-top, double-decker bus and put aside worries about navigating the streets or using public transportation. With two routes and 15 stops, this bus tour makes it easy to hop on and off near main Paris attractions, plus hear audio commentary on the city’s history, monuments, and museums. Plan your own itinerary with 1- or 2-day options and move at the pace you set.

What to Expect

Exchange your voucher at any Big Bus stops in Paris before you board. Hop on either of the two routes, Classical Route or Montmarte Route, and start exploring the city.

The bus has audio commentary to keep you informed as you ride, and each stop is announced so there’s never any confusion. Depending on the route and season, buses run every five to 45 minutes.

Top attractions on the Classical Route include the Eiffel Tower, Louvre-Pyramide, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Champs-Elysées, and Trocadéro. On the Montmarte Route, see the Moulin Rouge, Sacré Coeur, Gare du Nord, and Musée Grevin. Where you go and get off is up to you.

Your 1- or 2-day ticket can be upgraded to include a Seine River cruise or a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Louvre for an even more stress-free trip.

You are close to the bridge at Notre Dame Cathedral and you can catch the bus at the stop on the bridge over the Seine. You should see lots of buses in your area and you can also catch them at the Louve. Enjoy your stay!

Some of the buses had wheelchair access to the lower level. Not every bus did I'd say about 33%. They run about every 5-10 minutes so I'd say you would have to wait for one that did at your stop.
