Customer Reviews

  • Emily Kane

    The Hop on hop off bus is a great way to see the main sights in Paris. There are only 10 stops but it still takes quite a while to do the full loop, especially given the traffic. The bus looks dated and need an upgrade, specifically in regards to some of the audio guides not working. But overall a great time and highly recommend to anyone trying to see all of Paris in a short time.

  • M Marcano

    Easy to book and hop on/hop off.

  • Leonard Nunes

    Easy online purchase, quick and easy.
