The organization of BigBusTours was great. We drove the red line. In the bus you get headphones to hear all the explanations in different languages. The app showed in live mode where the next stop is and when the next bus will appear. Goa makes it possible. Get on and off at any time at the bus stops, the next bus is usually within 10 minutes at the exit point. We hardly had to wait.

We went to the first stop on the tour to catch the bus, however, there was a 20k road race that interfered with that plan. It was at the Eiffel tower. So we walked to the second stop which was the Champ De Mars. No buses. We walked over two miles to the Opera Garnier and finally found a man holding a sign for Big Bus Tours!!! This was not acceptable! You had our emai addresses and we should have been notified of this change. We didn't get to experience the whole tour because of the road race. We should have been offered money back because of the inconvenience and having a watered down tour through the city of Paris. We were very disappointed.

The Big bus tour is very good for getting an overall understanding of Paris geography. Since it if first come, you don’t always get a seat at the top but as people hop off, you can easily move. Be sure to try some other tours ti really get the feeling of the streets. I highly recommend the Paris: Montmartre Cheese, Wine & Pastry Tour. The neighborhood walk really enhanced the tastings.
