What you can expect

Plan your Paris adventure with Big Bus: hop-on, hop-off tickets and tours designed to help you experience the very best of the City of Lights.

We have two routes to show the best Paris has to offer and both are included in your ticket price. The red route takes in the must-sees close to the Seine: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Champs Elysées and the Louvre. The blue route delivers an introduction to Parisian bohemia around Montmartre.

You can also see the city by night with a panoramic tour. No one can fail to be moved by the view of Paris’ architecture by night, including the much-adored illuminations at the Eiffel Tower.

On all routes, you can plug-in, sit back and relax, listening to our engaging recorded commentary in a choice of 11 languages. With our Deluxe ticket and combination tickets, you’ll also be able to view Paris from a different perspective with a river cruise along the Seine.

Hop on and hop off as many times as you please throughout the day to create your very own Paris tour. Use our live bus tracking (available on the Big Bus app) to locate the next bus and jump back on board. Big Bus Tours Paris really does give you the most flexible sightseeing experience in the city.
