Commentary and view do not match many times
Jojo_J
, Nov 2021
The commentary and places do not match many times. This seems to be due to the fact that the driver triggers the commentary and it seems that our driver was either busy with driving in traffic or something else, the commentary was either triggered early or very late corresponding to the actual view outside.

Awful experience - use your money elsewhere
Farheen_A
, Nov 2021
The buses are so old and rattle - the whole way round - all the ear phones to listen to the tour guide are the cheapest quality I have ever seen. The tartly bus and frequent breaking in Parisian traffic actually hurt parts of the body. Never again. Also the invite Marion centre staff were extremely unhelpful - I left one of my trips QR code in a hotel that as over an hour away and on our last day there, They could see that these hadn’t been used and still wouldn’t help or suggest any other way to get round this. Ruined out last day.

Big bus London was great...
SwasitaS
, Nov 2021
Big bus London was great and drivers were awesome. However in Paris we bought tickets with Arc de Triomphe was a hassle and we were short of time. Had to redeem tickets at the main office and that would’ve taken most of our day. Nobody told us about this. We should be refunded the 15 euros pp. Some of the drivers were rough driving through the city of Paris.

DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE
Linda_H
, Nov 2021
Only one line was running and that had only 10 stops. We could (and did) walk the route. Very disappointed. Also the last bus was advertised as being 1800 but we were unceremoniously ejected at 1700 in the middle of the tour without any explanation except to say the tour had now ended for the day.

Great tour
Jane_F
, Nov 2021
We rode for the entire 2 hours listening to the audio provided. It was really nice as my parents are older and can’t do all the walking. Only thing we wished was different was the frequency of the buses that came bc we missed buses and then had to wait 30 minutes for the next ones to arrive and that’s a VERY long time with seniors who don’t have a place to sit.

Good view of Paris
Ronnie_M

Pretty basic trip of Paris. Too much music on the earphones. I'd have preferred a person commentating, like the San Francisco Big Bus tour. The tour did show lovely scenery though, and, as usual, a good view of a city.

Just do it

Always a great way to see a city and get your bearings! Get the layout of the major sites plus get some background information. Then you know where you wish to return! Great value and lots of fun!

Too many loooong stops
JMC525
, Oct 2021
We do enjoy, typically, doing a Hop On Hop Off tour bus; however, our bus made numerous, extremely long stops at pick up spots. I have no idea why we were waiting for 15 minutes or more and no explanations. We eventually got off and didn't get back on to finish the tour.
