We went on the first days we were in Paris- it was a good way to orient ourselves to the city while we were getting over our jet lag. The various lines are a great way to see the city especially parts that we didn't have any plans to specifically visit. The only bad part is that it can take... More

I had never been on a double-decker bus tour before; I had dismissed it as too touristy. But my mother-in-law has knee issues, so it was an easier way for her to see the city. And I wound up loving it myself. I am an avid photographer, so it was a great way to take photographs of monuments and landscapes... More

If you want to get your bearings in Paris do this day one and buy a multi-day pass. We saw all of the great sites and things to do in Paris. We went on all of the buses and saw all of Paris. You can hop off and on at any drop off and get back on again. You can... More

Many stops, clear dialogue, informative drivers, timely schedule. The boat option was a nice treat added to the two day pass. We were able to visit Montmartre easily from the stop.

whenever traveling anywhere I(we) recommend using the Big Bus for at least 3days. It's great for getting lay of the land and for getting ALL around the city.

We did the two day pass with Louvre. We definitely made use of the first day (we were in Paris for 4 days total) and the Louvre pass was a huge time saver. I would recommend the Louvre pass with your ticket because if you have a pre purchased ticket you bypass the long lines to get in. It also... More

I don't even know where to start.. Not worth the amount of money paid. I purchased a 3 day plus 1 night tour ticket online and redeemed it on the bus. First of all, when I redeemed the tickets they did not tell me that the night tour ticket had to be used THAT evening. Even though I bought a... More

Great choice to visit Paris for the first time and if you're visiting less than 3 days. You can buy tickets at your hotel or just on the bus and the stops itself. The hop on- hop off tour pass allows you to 4 tour routes (Green and Yellow I preferred mostly), which you can not do all in one... More

I've never been so insulted before in my life. One of the receptionists were so rude to us especially my friend. We went in to confirm our tour tickets as they had the wrong date on them and the lady threw one of our tickets away.The lady didn't think we saw but when we confronted her about it she called...

You pay 32,00 euros for one day ! You can buy tickets at your hotel or just on the bus and the stops itself. The hop on- hop off tour pass allows you to 4 tour routes, which you can not do all in one day. We did the green and the yellow tour, who toke us you to the... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
