This bus has not disappointed me where ever I have used it. Most recently I was in Paris with my 13 year old grand daughter and had no issues getting around. I use it not only as a sightseeing tool but also as easy transport to get from A to B. It’s always good value.

A great way to explore the city, the application shows where the buses are and how much they will cost at the stop. Headphones available on buses, recordings available in several languages to choose from. Traffic jams in Paris are huge, so you should count on 3 hours to complete the loop

Bus drop off and pick up locations in all the major tourist areas. Stop was crowded at L’Arc de Triomphe but another bus arrived as we pulled away. The audio tour between stops was full of information about what we were seeing. Did not do the Seine river tour with this company. We highly recommend, especially for first timers getting their bearings. Staff was very helpful.
