Paris: Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise
- Duration options: 1 - 2 days
Hop-on hop-off buses offer visitors to Paris a cheap and easy way to experience the city's spectacular sights at their own pace. Here are some highlights to help get your sightseeing itinerary started!
The square is home to the Bastille Opera – one of Paris' most striking modern buildings – and the July Column, which commemorates the July Revolution.
The Louvre, a fortress-turned-museum, is an essential visit for the architecture alone. When you don't have a bus to catch, come back to see icons like the Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa.
Alight at the George V stop to see Napoleon Bonaparte's famous arch and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as well as the notorious cabaret venues Lido and Crazy Horse.
If you've already seen and done Paris' most famous monument, the Eiffel Tower, then consider checking out the nearby Musée du Quai Branly for a ravishing collection of tribal art and lush greenery.
There's nowhere better to enjoy the sunshine than the gorgeous Esplanade des Invalides or neighboring Rodin Garden. If it looks like rain, visit Napoleon's tomb at the Army Museum instead!
Hop-on hop-off bus tours of Paris are one of the cheapest methods of sightseeing across the city. Prices start at €30 and rarely go above €40 for a single day, with a short Seine cruise even added on!
Bus tour companies usually operate across various routes (or lines). These tend to serve a pragmatic purpose rather than a thematic one but are generally easy to navigate. Tour listings provide full details. If you don't think you can squeeze all your points of interest into a single day, multiple day tickets are usually available for just a few euros more.

The bus ride was super with a very detailed audio, I had a problem getting a bus stop but as soon as i go the local partner on chat they quickly directed me to the next stop and I hoped in, also make sure when you alight you have your 1 hr cruise tickets, i did not pick mine but got them again through the help of the chat services, if you love the Paris night lights take a booking that later in the evening.
It was raining when we were there so this really helped us see around Paris. We just had trouble finding the stops where we can hop on again but otherwise, it helped our trip easy and convenient.
Very comfortable transportation, you do not have to worry about road traffic, the river is very close to main tourist attraction (Eiffel tower, Luvr museum, Notre Dame, Elisian fields)
Easy to find the bus stop. Close to the metro or RAR and of course to the most well known historical or tourist monuments. Informative guide in many languages.
This was the way option for both convenience and price to see as many sites as we could. Great staff, easy access and they get you right up to the sites!!!!
