This was a brilliant tour - seeing Paris illuminated was very special. The night we went, it rained but Big Bus staff distributed plastic ponchos which meant we stayed pretty much dry so the weather really doesn’t matter. It’s well worth the money (in my view) and we loved it from start to finish …and there is a particular high point to finish (but I’ll not spoil it for you by telling you what it is!)

Very nice experience, I really liked the city of Paris, I was able to learn a lot.

fantastic way of getting to and seeing all the major attractions of Paris

Vlad was very knowledgeable and he made it an interesting experience.

Notre guide était incroyable. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir. Merci...
