Whether you’re stopping off in Paris for a couple of days, or you’ve lived here for years, Paris day tours are one of the best ways to see the city! Why not maximize your time and let professionals do all of the planning for you?
The Big Bus Tour is one of our favourite ways to see Paris! You can sit back, relax, and see all of the main landmarks from the comfort of a double-decker bus. The Big Bus has become a fixture in Paris sightseeing tours, and can be found all over the world!
With over 11 stops per route, the ‘hop-on, hop-off’ concept is fabulous. Want to explore a particular neighbourhood? Simply get off the bus, then rejoin the tour whenever you like! Your ticket is valid throughout the whole day. Conveniently, the Big Bus arrives at each stop every 5-15 minutes!
Each Big Bus tour has an audio guide that explains a bit of the history behind each attraction. However, some of the tours have live guides! Prefer a real-life guide for your Paris day tours? Check the signage before stepping on the bus, it will indicate whether or not there is a guide on board.
