Birthday tour
Great way to see the city and learn about some historical fact. I will say you should be prepared for the high winds over the bridge. They are seriously strong. I driver we had was kind enough to remind people to not move from their seats while we where traveling. You’d think people would be smart enough to know.

Poor service
Sep 2021
Paid for a ticket late on a Saturday afternoon. Website clearly states last bus at stop 18.30. The driver decided he was finishing at 17.30 and drove to stop 1 and then told everyone to get off the bus as it was going back to the garage.

Even though it was pointed out that the website clearly says 18.30.

Tried to contact them via the chatbot on the website and have now been waiting 50 minutes for a reply.

We had very difficult time signing up on line. We had to get to main store to finally get our tickets. Buses are very crowded, run very sporadic and each driver does revise his route! The video has not been revised since 2019- wrong info on Notre Dame Cathedral. Not sure a good use of time, since it is very expensive

Bad costumer service
The worst experience ever I had the seller don’t know anything about the operating time and when you buy tickets you will not get refund and you will stuck to it. And what never negotiate with them because they will waste your time and money will not be refunded

Could be better
We picked up a leaflet in the Gare du Nord (ie a main station) metro upon arrival in Paris. And booked the bus for 2 days, intending to do the red route one day. And the blue route the next.

However, we discovered that the blue route was not available. My husband visited the big bus office. And was told that we had an old leaflet. And there wasn’t anything they could do (eg refund, or evening tour in lieu).

Surely the company could ensure that their marketing - via leaflets - is up to date. Otherwise it is an apparent misrepresentation.

Was a good way to see the main sights on the red route however. Though the buses were fairly old. And the stairs to go upstairs were very steep.

Aug 2021 • Friends
No one answered the phone. We had so many questions and tried to get information. We missed our tour and even now in the morning when the hours of operation are open NO ONE is answering. Would love to either get a refund or exchange for a time slot today. If so, wasted money.

Can not recommend during the pandemic
Unfortunately, I can not recommend to take this bus during the pandemic. According to their website they take health and distance measures seriously for their staff and customers safety. This was not the case during our 2-days tickets. Several times we had to jump off the bus because it was crowded. Almost all seats was taken, no seats was spared, and people was standing in the midline. When we went to the office with our complaint, they said there was nothing they could do with it.

Wish we’d done something else
Aug 2021 • Family
This was enjoyed by the little ones, but the teens were bored. Perhaps we should have “hopped on and off” more often instead of staying on for the duration. We also didn’t want to use the earphones onboard so we didn’t listen to the commentary - perhaps it would’ve been better if we’d done this. Regardless, it was a good way to get one’s bearings and fine to while away a couple of hours, but I think the consensus among our family was that the hours could’ve been spent doing something else!
